Im new here, and reading up frantically on SP.
Im 43yrs young and had my second episode this morning 3am (im not happy)
I woke with 100% brain function, but totally paralyzed (cant even open eyes)
There was a heavy force over my entire body pushing down, and I feel the presence of something bad over me.
Im a large guy (powerful) and it takes a lot to scare me, but i must confess i was scared silly.
At first i thought i was slipping away and this is what it feels like, I could not even say good by to my wife who was so close she was touching me while we slept.
A series of emotional stages and confusion was overwhelming.
But the feeling i had throughout my body legs and arms was one of extreme tranquillity and relaxed to the point of numbness, but in a good way!
My head had a sound that was similar to radio interference and wind mixed together, and although i could here it , it wasnít outside it was internal (in my head).
I was on my back with my fingers interlocked with hand on my belly, I was aware they were locked and could not move them.
My eyes could not open but the more i seemed to try the more scared and apprehensive i got.
I donít drink or take any type of drugs.
And finally I cant help but feel this was some bad spirit or demon smothering me, please can someone confirm if my thoughts are a bit rash and farfetched, or is this common?
