i know how to controll it, im good at it
- when i was 15 years old, had my first SP,it almost scared the shit out of me, at first when i was about to sleep, my mind felt like draining and my heart felt like really slow beating, and now im 18 years old it happen to me again had a nightmare too,in my SP nightmare i saw a demon hard to discribed it, it was starting coming to me but was'nt scared maybe lil scared but i looked away started to woke up and something touched my a**, and i turn my back fast tried to punch it fastest i can nobody was there, and i started going home to my other home i should say,and if you want to know how to controll it, "wiggle your fingers and feet" and when your about to sleep, you should feel your mind first, if it feels like draining don't sleep yet "relax your mind and heart" take a deep beath and have good feeling nature, that helped me, and it's a little scary to me so maybe that's it don't be afriad of it controll your body,

- I knew about sleep paralysis prior to my experience. My stepdad one night couldn't move, and opened his eyes to see a demon-like creature hovering over his chest, crushing him. I did my research, and discovered SP. Tonight was MY first time. I was falling asleep, and suddenly felt uncomfortably hot, like the temperature in the room was kicked up. Then, I heard a ringing sort of sound. Planes had been flying over the house just a half hour before this, so it didn't alarm me as much as when I began to feel a force, like a heavy, thick blanket, pushing me into the bed. I tried to move my hand, to reach my TV remote, but I couldn't. I had to struggle to open my eyes, and was looking through a sort of swirling black vortex. I could only see a small circle of my ceiling. Everything went away, and then came back at least three times before I woke for good. I finally tried to call for my mama, and only managed a murmur. Knowing what was happening didn't make me feel any less panicked.

God someone help me
- I'm afraid of everything... Someone help me. It happened about three months ago when I was exahasted. I woke up and I felt like my feet were being forced staight into the air, it scared the shit out of me. Then the worst was this morning,,,, I could feel someone hitting my side but there was no one there.. God I'm scared but I know what it is..

I feel helpless.
- I don't see images or people. I don't hear people talking. But when I'm sleeping, I'll wake up the start to hear a buzzing noise, my muscles at this point are getting sluggish and hard to move, then the buzzing noise is very loud, and my chest has risen, my arms and legs will not move, I try and try but feel helpless. All my muscles feel as if they are all have pins and needles and shake profusely. And if I struggle it gets worse. Sometimes when it is happening I think I yell for help, although I'm unsure if I in fact called for help, was my mind playing tricks on me??? I gasp for air when it happens, but I'm breathing fine? My voice does not work during this time. My eyes sometimes flicker. Then out of no where my body loosens up, and I'm free. This experience lasts from 30 seconds to 1 minute. I used to think i had problems with my spine or maybe I was going crazy... I'm 18 in June, from Victoria, Australia and this has only been going on for one and a half years I think. Cheers.

This no sleep paralysis....
- This had happen to me since I could remember. I was laying in bed watching T.V one nigbt, and when I dozed off, I could see this dark like figure flowing in my door way of my room. I closed my eyes because in my mind I'm thinking this is all in my head. So I was able to reopen my eyes only to find that is was not only an dark figure anymore, it was a shape like beast of a demon standing over me. I couldn't move, nor speak, or breathe. I start praying under my breath and as soon I did that it turned and flew out the door, I was able to move but wondering what just happen to me. Two nights later, I had the same happen to me but different. This time I was laying on my side and felt something crawl behind me in bed and start scratching and hitting me. I couldn't then move nor open my eyes, just felt it. I called upon the name of Jesus and then it fleed. This is no sleep paralysis.

- I've had it one time before where I was lying in bed and couldn't move my body and felt the compression but I've just woken up from one where it felt like I'd been dragged around my bed, fell of my bed and dragged across my carpet. So weird because it felt like I was getting carpet burn. In my head I knew I was in paralyses but because I felt like I could feel the carpet I thought my body would wake up on the floor. But when I could open my eyes I was still lying in bed. I think once you realise you're in paralyses and hallucinating try to remain calm! I kept on telling myself that it'd be over soon. Try and focus on that x x x x

It was scary..but i beat it!
- When i first experienced SP, i was watchin tv, i guess i fell asleep but wanted to wake up again. I was so scared, my door was open and i was seeing someone in my door way very faintly in the distance...i was trying to call out to my dad but couldn*t make a sound. I closed my eyes and forced myself to wake up, and i woke up with a LOUD gasp and ran str8 to his room. Since then ive has SP and im so accustomed to it, i just close my eyes so i dont see what i dont want to, and tell myself..im ready to wake up now and i just go back to sleep, or wake up.

I can help you fix SP
- Ok I'm 13 years old and I always have SP,it scares me and it feels like someone is pushing me down. Now what I believe is,it's not SP. I believe it's a demon ontop of u,and I know it is,because my religion is I'm a jehovahs witness. Most people don't know them,but when I can't move I say God's name which is "Jehovah" and suddenly I feel the pressure slowly fade away. When ever I have SP,I'm terrified to go back to bed because I believe it's a demon who is attached to something in your room. Perhaps a bad video game or even a doll u got at a yard sale,they will keep bothering u until u find out what they are attached to and throw it away. Now SP is different for everyone,but for me,when I Say God's name (Jehovah) it's like he protects me. Well that's me theory,thanks for reading.

what is wrong with me
- So this happens to me every couple of months and when I was little I would feel like a doll was alive trying to get me and I couldn't move of yell. Now as an adult I usually sleep with the TV on with the sleep timer set and I usually Lay on my right side facing away from the TV and im facing my fiances back. I noticed when this happens im on my back but my head is facing my fiance still and I can hear and see everything that is going on around me but I am terrified and I feel the sensation that someone of something is on the side of my bed and I want to turn over on my right side and I cannot move then I start freaking out and try to yell for my fiance but it is just bearly coming out and then the focus is just trying to grab him and wake him up to help but I can't move talk or breathe. After a while I will just snap out of it and wake up but I let out a huge gasp for air. Alot of times I feel like im trying to open my eyes even though I can see everything
- —Guest freaked out

Senior first timer
- Had my first episode last summer. I had just fallen asleep and felt the bed depress behind me as though someone had sat on it and I just became terrified and screamed. My husband was away and it was the worst time for it. The following episodes started with hearing sounds like a radio playing softly in the room with men's voices. One episode was a hurricane force wind sweeping up over our bed ripping at our covers while i watched my husband sleeping and wondering why he wans't feeling it the way I was. Another time I felt an icy hand reach up under the covers and grab my left ankle and pull down on me all the while I'm screaming my husband's name but he can't hear me because in reality it's screaming in my dream. I can always feel the SP coming on because the dull roaring noise will start sounding in my ears. It's absolutely the most frightening experience even if you know what's coming because you're not in control.

- This is strange to read because long ago I used to get SP in my dreams but I think the last time I ever had it was when I was pretty young in elementary. I woke up on my couch and my eyes had mucus on them so it was hard at first to open my eyes and I wasent able to move at all and it was daytime and my grandma was in the room but I didnt hear any loud noises or see anything strange like I read in some of these storys and after a while I was able to move but my eyes were open the whole time so I dont know if I was just half dreaming or not. The last in dream SP I had was pretty creepy but I was able to lift myself up real fast to try and change my small tv from static and fell back down to then have some demented looking rabbit doll jump on my chest with its teeth in me lol thats the only one I can remember but im pretty shure i was fully asleep for that one

Paranormal experience or Sleep paralysis
- I don't know much about sleep paralysis but I know what I'm going through is real. I'm 19 now and it's happened as long as I can remember. When I was little I woke up to see a hooded figure staring. I told my mom but she never believed me so I ignored it. In my teens I slept less at night and more in the day and that was the time I was home alone. I'm sleeping on my side woke up and just stared at the wall for a minute then decided to get up only that I couldn't and I new something was about to happen. I heard heavy boots running up the stairs through the kitchen even a chair scraping the floor until it stopped in my room and just stood over my bed to my back and mumbled incoherent words and I felt a floating sensation and it was gone. This kept happening and I started sleeping in day time with the tv blaring and with my dog in the living room. It happened and my dog stayed asleep. I didn't get it I heard stumping around even sitting on the leather couch. There was a dent where it sat

Sleep paralysis is not cool....
- I was 19 years old when I first experienced SP. I was sleeping on my side when I woke up unable to move and with something on my back with its arms wrapped around me. It took everything I had but I was able to get him off by shaking back and forth and throwing him off me. When I sat up he was gone. I should also mention he was grunting and sounded like some sort of demon/beast. It was scary to say the least and no one believed me when I told the story. 9 years later, just last night actually, it happened again. This time was worse. This thing really wanted me this time. We fought and when I won the battle I drifted off to sleep only top face him again, and again. Scary. I tried to change my sleep position but he attacked me from all angles. When I was on my back, he put such pressure on my chest that I thought I was going to have a heart attack. BTW both experiences were in my mothers house where I was spending the night after moving out at a young age. This stuff is real and scary!
