Last night was scary. I had another sleep paralyzation episode. It was about 3:15 am when I finally woke myself up. I must have been having a dream about something because while I was trying to wake myself up, I thought I was in my parents house and that they were walking around the bed. At least I didn’t think it was demons this time! It was really hard to wake my body up. I kept trying to relax and just go back to sleep, but my mind kept waking up and realizing that my body wouldn’t respond. By the end of it, in my mind I was rolling around kicking and screaming, but when I actually woke up I was lying on my back and had barely uttered a sound. I HATE THIS. I was sooo tired and had a headache when I woke up, but I was scared to go back to sleep. So I turned the lights in my bedroom on lol.
The episodes seem to have 2 things in common: Ambien and me sleeping on my back. I took Ambien for about 3 nights in a row to get to sleep, but last night I didn’t take it at all.
I’m getting a little worried because these sleep paralysis episodes didn’t start happening till about 2 years ago and they keep happening more and more frequently.
