Sleep paralysis fucking sucks. Sometimes, you just wish there was someone there to wake you up, ya know? It feels like as if you're soul just left or body or something. Sp00ky shit.

Whenever it happens to me, it always puts something I desperately want right by me while I can't move to get it. This morning, it was a translated version of a game I really want from Japan. I woke myself up by tickling the roof of my mouth with my tongue and was I was disappointed that there was no game.

Get a cat; that way if you hear something, you can tell yourself "Oh, it's just the cat."

OH GOD NO, I have chronic sleep paralysis, and because of it, I fear sleep.

I find if I deprive myself of sleep, it happens less. When it happens, I'm awake in my room, but I cannot move my body at all, and there is a tingling sensation around my back or the back of my neck. And there is something bad always happening or going to happen. And I know that if I can just make the littlest movement, I'll wake up. But that's hard to do, considering you're paralyzed.... While asleep.

I find if I close my eyes while it's happening, I won't leave my imagination to create things in my room. All though I can hear faint whispering in the back of my head. That is almost equally terrifying as opening my eyes while I'm having it.

My latest one was pretty bad. I was laying on my side while it was happening. I felt a rough vibrating feeling on my back, and I could legitimately hear the sound of a chain saw. As it continued, I heard a lady's voice say "it just won't cut through the skin," and when I woke up, I instantly sat up and ran out of my room to turn on the hall light. I was so scared then, lololol.

I've experienced this a lot of times two years ago. It's funny because a lot of people speak of a black figure approaching them or sitting on them but I've never had that.

What I got was a loud screeching sound and inability to open my eyes and move any part of my body at all. It feels like i'm being pulled into the sky as the screeching sounds get louder and louder. Only way for me to loose (wake up) was to either bite my bottom lip hard enough to feel pain or forcefully open my eyes. Once my eyes opened, everything stopped.

It's been almost two years since my last experience with this horrific experience. I truly hope It doesn't happen to me again for sometime now.

I've experienced this a few times, though not in recent memory. The first few time it was quite scary. I remember being able to see my hand but it would only twitch when I went to move it.
I tried calling out to my mom in the other room, but I could only manage a strained moan from my throat. I kept at it for about a minute until BAM, I was back in full control.

At some point in between then and the next time it happened, I had learned that it was just your body keeping you from acting out you dreams. So the next time it happened I tried to control my breathing by taking deep breaths, which seemed help, if only in calming me down. This time I did feel some kind of presence in the room. I didn't see anything, but I felt like it was just waiting on me to go back to sleep so it could get me. I was recovering from being sick and had slept a lot, so when I tried to go back to sleep it just kept happening. Pretty sure that was the last time it happened.

Least it's not the opposite, and you wake up in the kitchen while making a sandwich. THAT would be scary!

It has happened to me enough times to look it up and find out what the hell was going on.

I want to say maybe 10 times. It doesn't happen randomly....it happens if I fall asleep when I'm not trying to fall asleep. I know that sounds weird, but that's when it happens. I just lay there and want to wake up....but can't. Then I fall back into very very real dreams, the likes of which you would never want to have.

I remember having one and ACTUALLY thinking that I was dead. I remember I was like "there's no possible way this could be a dream. It's too real. I have to be dead." And it wasn't a dream thing. I was sure that in real life I died doing something. Then I semi woke up, couldn't move as hard as I tried to, and then my body basically forced me back into a dream state.

There's something fucking weird about dreams and sleep paralysis as a whole. Very very strange stuff to experience. A couple times ago that it happened I had to literally get out of my house and go to a friends at 2 in the morning because I was SURE there was some crazy shit going on.

I induced it in my self a few weeks ago. I didn't see anything scary, but it was pretty creepy not being able to move. Only lasted a second or two then I fell asleep. I was able to remember all my dreams, and I was aware that I was dreaming which was pretty cool.

I've experienced sleep paralysis a few times. It's a very strange sensation, almost as if the connection from your brain to your limbs has just been severed.

The only thing I was able to do was control my rate of breathing (also unable to speak), which increased dramatically in the panic that is pretty natural to feel when you're laying there unable to move, and think that someone has broken into your home in which you were alone (on one occasion, I saw shadows moving on the wall that resembled people, as well as hearing people moving around and mumbling, while in the other, I saw the girl from the ring standing by my bed).

It's a pretty terrifying experience. There comes a certain numbness when you're in a dream, but that numbness does not carry forward into sleep paralysis in my experience.

That's lucid dreaming. Lucid dreaming and sleep paralysis are two VERY different things. In sleep paralysis, you are actually awake, but unable to move, often seeing things in your room. It's classically depicted in paintings with demons sitting on your chest.

*bumps*

I've been getting frequent sleep paralysis lately, and I'm loving it. It's as though I'm being sedated on some type of anesthetic. In fact, that's the exact topic of the hallucination that I was experiencing this morning under sleep paralysis. I was unable to move, and there was a man next to me that would inject the anesthetic back into me every time I woke up, so I had to pretend to be asleep by keeping my eyes closed throughout. Eventually I'd actually go back to sleep, then wake up again to be sedated once more. This recurred roughly 3-4 times. I had no idea what his aim was, but it felt fantastic. It's interesting because my brain was trying to convince me that it was all real, so while understanding that it's most likely a hallucination, I couldn't fully doubt it either. So my only choice was to enjoy the experience. Same thing happened in another incident where the Devil was crawling on top of me, digging his sharp claws into my chest.

I had one or two sleep paralysis incidents over the past year. Not at night but when I was lying in my bed one afternoon under the sheet and closed my eyes I suddenly had a weird feeling that I lost control over my body. considering the circumstances of fearing that I will suffocate under the sheets I panicked trying to get out of my bed of which I couldn't. It does kind of feel like as if someone is holding you down as you will feel your body feeling heavier than usual during sleep paralysis. Nothing paranormal seemed to have happened though, no voices, no noises, no sense of someone else in the room sort of thing. Luckily I actually managed to gain control and got myself out of my bed.

It happened to me once 1-2 years ago. I woke up on a Saturday or Sunday and simply couldn't do anything (move/talk). If I remember correctly I was very tired when it happened and after about 10-20 seconds of figuring out what was going on, I fell back asleep. When I woke up again I was completely normal
