I already posted most of this as a reply to another thread, but I'll make a new thread because I'm hoping to find some information or hear some
other peoples' stories about sleep paralysis
I get sleep paralysis, and I had it for the first time in a while two nights ago. I was about to fall asleep, and out of nowhere I "heard" the
words "behind you." I didn't actually hear the words, it was in my head, but it was very clear and had nothing to do with what I was thinking at
the time. So I opened my eyes and rolled over to check the room, and didn't say anything.
About fifteen minutes later, just as I fell asleep, I started feeling like my sheets were being pulled off of me. I opened my eyes, but having sleep
paralysis I was unable to move so I just concentrated on waking myself up fully so I could function. If you've never had sleep paralysis, it is when
you wake up but your body is still limp, so when you try to move it feels like your limbs are locked in place. Sometimes this is accompanied with
visions, and with me it usually is. When I opened my eyes I saw a whitish-blue outline of a man's face right in front of me, like a ghost. When I
fully woke up and was able to move, my room was back to normal. Right before I woke up to this, I was having a great dream that I was snowboarding in
outer space, jumping off planets.
Here's a short description with my sleep paralysis experiences. The first time it was bad, I saw a woman's face right in front of me smiling. I
had never experienced this before so I was freaking out and the second I gained control of my body I punched at the face, instead hitting my computer
that I had fallen asleep using. A few other times I've woken up seeing bodies floating above me. Ive only seen things like that probably about 5
times, no more than ten. Another time, I felt like I was sinking into my bed like quicksand and felt like I was suffocating
This time was also the first time Ive had sleep paralysis while laying on my side. I rarely sleep on my back, and I stopped doing it completely when
I noticed I only get sleep paralysis when I'm sleeping on my back. Not any more, I guess.
If anyone has any information on sleep paralysis or visions like that, I would greatly appreciate it because it's very confusing, and usually scary.
