Sleep paralysis is THE most terrifying thing I have ever experienced in my life. It happens to me quite often, much to my dismay. While part of your
description sounds like Out of Body Experience or Astral Projection, when you start to describe the paralysis and FEAR, that's when it turns horribly
into Sleep Paralysis.
I am a lucid dreamer, I can get myself out of any dream when I want to. SP is different. No matter how much you try to crawl out of bed, or out of
your body, or scream, you cannot stop what is happening to you. I have seen truly horrifying things during a SP episode. You wake up screaming,
gasping for air, and absolutely terrified.
The first time my husband ever witnessed this, I was stuck in a paralysis where I saw a black horse at the foot of the bed. I got instant terror. I
tried to scream, to move, this did not work and I realized I was in paralysis. A black horse in most any other situation would not be frightening, but
this horse was a demon to me in that moment and I knew I had to get out of it. I screamed in my head " NO YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED HERE GET OUT" over and
over and over and could not break the paralysis.
The horse snarled at me and showed his teeth right as my husband happened to walk in the room and say "Hey baby do you want me to turn off the
light?". The minute he said "Hey baby..." I sat straight up screaming bloody murder. Unfortunately since then my husband has had his bouts with
paralysis. I'm pretty sure he had it before, he just didn't know what it was.
I feel for ANYONE who has to deal with SP, if someone asked me to describe my vision of hell, that's what it would be.
Thank you for sharing, sleep paralysis needs more attention and research.
