Hello I’m interested to know if anyone has experienced the same as me and their take on this?
About two years ago I moved into a new apartment with my boyfriend and had my first sleep paralysis experience. I remember lying in bed asleep on my back and “waking up” to realize I could not move my body, not even my eyes, and I could not breathe whatsoever. The only thing I had was my mind wide awake and the panic of not being able to move or breathe, I literally thought I was going to die. I remember desperately trying to move my hand, I began tapping with my hand on the bed and my boyfriend shook me and woke me up. He said I was making strange noises and he thought I was having some sort of panic attack. I also felt the heavy sensation pushing down on my chest stopping me from breathing. When I finally woke up, thanks to my boyfriend, I remember being very disturbed by the experience, but even more so because of the feeling that something was in the room with us. This happened 3 more times in the same night and really scared my boyfriend. After that night, this would happen every couple of nights.
Eventually me and my boyfriend had our differences and decided to end the relationship. I moved in with my mother in a new apartment.
I have lived in this apartment now for almost a year, but hadn’t experienced the sleep paralysis thing in this time until just last night. But it was so much worse this time around.
I was lying in bed listening to peaceful music as I have trouble anyway falling asleep, and heard a knocking sound in my room. because I felt scared I stopped listening to music and just tried to fall asleep naturally. But I have never felt so certain that someone or something was in my room with me, the pitter patter of footsteps, the slight knocking sounds, the feeling that they were walking around my bed. Eventually I fell asleep. Only the sleep paralysis thing happened again. This time I “woke up” 4 times before I actually woke up. Again this happened about 4 times but the final time this happened I distinctly remember something had hold of my body and was throwing me around the room. I was wide awake while this happened and felt every ounce of pain as my body was flung into the walls of my room, I even remember my head smashing against the wall, all this happening while my body was paralyzed. eventually I woke up but I cried my eyes out and had to get into bed with my mum.
This is the most terrifying experience I have ever had because I feel like a demon was trying to kill me. Please can someone tell me if they have been through something similar? No-one understands in my family or friends!
