About 4 months ago I experienced something really unexplained. I was talking through text messages with my boyfriend at like around 1am. I could not sleep so I decided stayed up talking to him until late. Later that night, when it was about around 3:30am, I told him I was getting sleepy but wasn't going to go to sleep.
From all the fighting my sleep I ended up falling asleep around 4:15am until 4:27am and in between that time I have no idea what happened. I know did not feel when I actually closed my eyes to sleep (I did not tell my boyfriend I was going to sleep) his texts were still coming in. Between those 15 minutes, I experienced a feeling that I had never experienced before in my life.
I had my phone plugged on the charger at the top of my right shoulder. That's when I started to feel like I had weight on my stomach, legs and as if someone was holding my arms and fingers down on the bed. I don't know if my eyes were opened or closed but I know everything looked pitch dark. I remember trying to move my fingers but for some reason it was impossible for me to do so. I tried talking and calling my mom but since I couldn't move I didn't know what else to do.
I could not speak or move, all I felt was my breathing and it was really fast as if I was suffocating. It felt like I had that weight on me for hours! Suddenly I could move again, my heart was racing as if I had just ran for miles. That's when I reacted and got my hands on my phone and kept texting my boyfriend. I told him what had happened and he told me it might of been "que se me subio el muerto" in other words "a dead ones spirit was over me".
I searched up what it meant on google search. I had a lot of result pop up for "sleep paralysis" that's when I knew I had experienced Sleep Paralysis. I read that it is when your body is really tired but the brain is wide awake. The body stops functioning but the brain is still working as if it were wide awake. My boyfriend sent me a link on YouTube of what happens when when sleep paralyses takes over. In the video there was a lady laying down sound asleep on her bed, then her bedroom door started to open and bright light shined through while someone was coming through. It was a devil with pure blood shot red eyes walking towards her bed and climbing at the end of her bed to sit on top of her. It was around 4:45am at the time he sent me the link.
He then sent me a text message telling me not to watch it because it was going to scare me more. I'm more than sure he knew I was going to get scared because of the demon part which I had already watched. I turned off the video and as soon as I turned it off, my boyfriend Face-timed me so that I wouldn't feel lonely and scared. Like I said it was my first time experiencing sleep paralyses so I was terrified. He told me everything was going to be okay and that I probably experienced it because I was really tired and was fighting to stay awake.
If you have had anything similar please let me know... I would like to read about your experience as well.
