I have this thing called sleep paralysis. I’ve had it for just over a year and I’ve been getting it from about 1 maybe 2 times a week to 8 times in one night. I’ve only hallucinated during the state not too many times. My most vivid hallucination went like this… I woke in this state in which like every other time, I can’t move anything but my eyes and eyelids. My entire body is dead asleep but my mind is still fully awake, if not more awake. I started looking around my room (I can also see my body cause I’m laying on my back). My closet starts to warp, I hear a voice say my name, Blake and the “k” sound starts to repeat as if it was a scratched CD. My closet is on the wall right in front of my bed. The k sound fades away. A black shadow appears from the closet as if it was reaching for my hand. I start to make out the figure. It has no legs, a dark/black colour, the face of a reptile… It starts to get closer…and closer. Even when I close my eyes..it gets closer. I can feel myself screaming even when I physically can’t open my mouth. I try to get up and run from this beast. I try as hard as I can to lift my arm to get out bed and run. I can feel my arm lifting up, but when I look at it, I’m not even lifting a finger. In an instant my body came to and I was in my regular state. I felt as if I was drowning the entire paralysis state this time and someone had saved me. This is my most vivid and scariest time I’ve been in the paralysis state, my imagination ran loose. Sleep paralysis is honestly the scariest shit you’ll ever encounter. There are times where I’ve woken up in tears because of it. Its the most terrifying thing I’ve ever encountered. It fucks me up.
