Quote, originally posted by genjy » A couple of weeks ago, I had an episode of sleep paralysis.
I had some kind of weird dream and it ended with me using my fingers to draw "my favorite thing" on a dusty mirror. For some reason, I drew a ship (like a Mayflower kind of old ship).
As soon as I finished the drawing. I was in this half-asleep/half-awake mode and I saw my ship drawing turn into the face of a human-like figure sitting on my bed. The figure didn't have details, but like a whirling blob. It was leaning forward towards me as if it was trying to get on top of my face.
That was when the sleep paralysis struck in and I couldn't move and I could hear my heart pounding. I wasn't really scared, so I kept on yelling (or what I thought I was doing) "f*ck off! f*ck off!" like 6 times.
"It" persisted to lay on top of me, so I started... kissing it. I kissed it like 4 times and it slowly went away. I thought I could try to gross it out since what it was doing seemed like a prank.
I woke up fully and my nerves were all tingly. I didn't move or try to fall back asleep for like at least 10 minutes.
My mom gets sleep paralysis all the time. I bet she has a lot of similar stories to tell.

I know this is an old reply to be quoting, but I have spells (2-3 months) of the same **** every year or two, sleep paralysis sucks and will scare the hell out of you. It's usually not connected to a dream but I've had a few, most recent was basically I was walking across my lawn for something when a large coyote runs out of the woods and jumps for me, I get about half way into protecting myself and just drop, can only move my eyes enough to see my family standing around watching this thing try to tear me limb from limb.
