Hi. My name is Dylan and this is my first post. I found the forum whan I was doing some research about sleep paralysis.
I started having it a few years ago in my early thirties. The first time it happened I was terrified and thought I'd had a stroke or something similar. It followed a particularly bad nightmare. I get a lot of nightmares.
The more it happens, the stronger it seems to get. I have no control over it at all.
A few days ago, it happened when I was having a sleep in the afternoon.
I woke up and had the usual feeling of a presence in the room with me and was unable to move and was struggling to breathe I think - the first time it has affected my breathing. There was a very loud static buzzing noise.
As I lay there I felt myself rising up off the bed, feet first and was being dragged up out through the roof. I could look down and see my neighbours in their back garden. Very quickly I was back in my bed and the phone rang. I didn't need to answer because it stopped and I heard a voice in the room pclaiming to be a devil and telling me to watch out. This terrified me and slowly I came out of the paralysis in my usual way which includes a feeling of intense spinning and tingling.
I have read various theories about this like most people here and who have it and am open minded about the whole thing. Just glad I'm not the only one and wanted to share this latest experience.
Great forms by the way and I'll post more.
Thanks for reading.
