Common or Isolated Sleep Paralysis Stories
Most people find common, or isolated sleep paralysis disturbing and often frightening.
You are very basically hovering between being fully awake and still clinging to sleep. It is also most often accompanied by the feeling of being held down or frozen in place while what looks and feels like a malevolent being hovers over you.
There are other times when you feel things slightly differently, but are still experiencing an episode of isolated sleep paralysis, where you feel you are awake and aware of what is going on, but can't do anything to help yourself and the situation is uncomfortable.
There is a more detailed description of what is happening to you in our sleep paralysis section.
Sometimes reading about other folks' experiences can give you a better understanding about what is happening to you. We have included some stories about common or isolated sleep paralysis from our readers who have been generous enough to share.
Last night, I was laying in bed with my hubby and our daughter who also sleeps in our room in her own bed. I woke up out of a deep sleep, I wasn't fully awake but once I opened my eyes I saw what looked like a shadow of a man and he came right at me.
As he almost looked like he was falling with his arms out like he was going to grab me, he disappeared. It was like he went right through me, my husband, and the bed.
I sat up in a panic 'cause it happened so fast it scared me. I sat on the edge of my bed and looked around the room then laid back down. The shadow was see through. I'm still a little shaken up from it.
I woke up from sleep and couldn't move at all and in the beginning it felt like my surroundings were shaking like an earthquake, but I knew it wasn't one.
