Sleep Paralysis

How it feels to have sleep paralysis.


Nataliyah Robinson, Sydney Ellis, Editor

If I was asked to describe sleep paralysis, I would say it’s daunting. Sleep paralysis is when you wake up and you’re unable to move, or talk. It’s almost like an out-of body experience. I, myself experienced sleep paralysis and it was a terrifying experience. I was in my bed and woke up and felt pressure, like somebody had sat down on my bed. I tried to move and I couldn’t. It felt like somebody was moving around in bed with me. I didn’t really believe in people’s stories they would tell about sleep paralysis, but now I do. It’s 100% a thing and I wouldn’t want to experience it again. Have you experienced sleep paralysis?
