Hi all, another post on here reminded me of my sleep paralysis episodes. Its only happened to me a couple of times but its very scary. You're laid in bed you feel fully awake but then you get the sensation someone or something is in the room. For me this thing laid next to me in bed and told me not to be scared but to let it enter my body. I was powerless to move (the paralysis bit), I pretended to be asleep and it eventually went. I'm not really a believer in ghosts so it scared me to death. A friend of mine then told me what I'd experienced was sleep paralysis a state where your body is asleep but your mind is awake but susceptible to hallucination (I believe it's called a hypnogogic state). It makes sense that fm sufferers might experience this more due to our erratic sleep patterns so I just wondered if any of you have had this or similar experiences?
