I get sleep paralysis sometimes – usually when I’m super stressed or starting a new medication. It can be pretty scary. I hallucinate when it happens (you’re typically in that half-awake/half-asleep state – your mind is waking up from sleep, but your body is still “disconnected” – so you can’t move). When I was younger and didn’t know what was happening, it was downright frightening. I thought I was going crazy, or being attacked by demons (I was a Christian back then). Now that I know what it is, I’m more in control. It can still be scary – last time I saw people on fire standing over my bed, and I was aware that my body couldn’t move, but couldn’t quite process that the people were not real – but I know that it’s nothing to be afraid of.
