Under the weather and nighmarish experience

July 23rd, 2008 at 06:44 am

Not feeling too well today. You know that feeling when you wake up with your whole body hurting and legs turning to jelly? I fell asleep on the couch reading a book. I finally woke up and went to bed around 4 I think because it was too hot in the sofa and I was sweating. However when I fell asleep on my bed, I had this whole dream/nightmare thing about someone heavy pushing me down. It was not just in my dream, I could actually feel it physically in my half sleep. But it wasn't also real because there was no one pushing me down, but I could feel the heaviness and the feeling of not being able to move or make any sound out of my throat when I wanted to so desperately. Have you ever had that? What is it called? I have had that happen to me a few times before. I think it has something to do with the position your body is in when you fall asleep. Anyway it wasn't pleasant at all and scary in my sleeping state because you actually think someone is trying to push you down and strangle you or whatever.

I brought in both my breakfast and lunch today, but I really don't feel like eating because of how I feel. I am just drinking some hot tea right now.

    Um, well, I've never had the feeling of someone pushing down on me, but I've had sleep paralysis before. It's where you are quite certain you are awake, but your body can't move, and you can't scream.

    I'm not going to lie. It's pretty scary.

    However, after having learned about it, I now try my best to stay calm and/or shake myself out of it. It always does, eventually.

    I'm not entirely certain what causes it, or if anything at all other than it being a freak occurrence. In general, however, I am trying my best to sleep better. Overall, it's just much better for your health to do that. On top of it, I believe that not being in a good sleeping condition when you fall asleep is probably what causes it.

    I had that after coming back from my trip to Paris. I could not get to sleep on the plane so when finally, after 22 hours, I was in my own bed ... I hallucinated and had sleep paralysis. But that was the only time.
