Warning: Okay, this is a very weird, creepy, unlike me post. So if you are planning to fall in love with me I say don't read it. But you will. You curious lot. Sigh.
And if you guys have it too, let's talk about it over a cup of coffee. Just kidding. We should ignore each other and spare the awkwardness.
|Go away. Now.|
Ever got trapped in your own body? I don’t know many people who have this horrible condition I have thanks to my mum’s genes. Sleep Paralysis. This spooky hereditary disorder sounds intriguing. It has all the classic signs and symptoms of a terrifying nightmare:
- You can’t breathe.
- You can’t move.
- You can’t speak
- Intense fear.
- This awful feeling of someone doing gymnastics on your body.
- Sometimes a tearing pain will pass through you.
- And sometimes you will vibrate like your cell phone.
- You might hallucinate. Catch a glimpse of a spirit, ghost, beast or your own self
- A certain sense of an evil presence surrounds you.
- Astral project into the other worlds. At least some people claim to.
- Lucid dreaming.
I was 11 when I first experience the ghastly Sleep Paralysis. Now, 10 years later (or is it 11? I suck at math) it still happens, frequently. Okay.
As much as I like to think that it is a group of alien experimenting on me OR an old hag has taken a fancy to me OR a person has created my voodoo doll – it’s not that interesting after all. UnFortunately, it has a scientific explanation (to my relief and disappointment!). No paranormal stuff like black magic... Or is it? I am doubtful.
Sleep Paralysis occurs due to this random mis-transmission of chemicals. Your body is all ZzZzZz and your mind is like O_O and these things you see and feel are just in your imagination.You are between the states of consciousness and unconsciousness.
So after battling with insomnia (or rather sleep-phobia) and caffeine addiction I am finally getting over it. They say just go with the flow, scrunch up your face and wriggle your toes. You will be okay in a few minutes. Or…
You’ll die from Sudden Unexplained Nocturnal Death Syndrome (SUNDS) True Story.
Now I'll go to bed. I hope it won't happen..
|But It Will.|
