I've never witnessed anything that has shaken me so, nor have I have thought that I would ever possibly witness anything.
Last week, on Sunday night, I was trying to fall asleep because I had school in the morning. Mind you, I didn't get comfortable until around 2:30a.m, and even then, it took me a good few hours to fall into a decent sleep. I didn't fall into a good sleep until after I had my little adventure.
I was half asleep, and having weird dreams. I dreamt of catching a ceiling fan on fire in my room because the lights wouldn't work (though I have no ceiling fan in there.), and I dreamt of flying down my street and hitting a semi-truck. As I said, they were weird.
Somewhere in my dream, I felt as if I were going to wake up. I kept trying, but I couldn't. I felt frozen. I opened my eyes, and I stared up at my ceiling. There was no ceiling fan like in my dream; it was just my normal room. I tried moving, but remained frozen in place. I was not a comfortable position either. My back was slightly (if at all) arched, and I was putting all my weight onto my left side. I tried to move again, when I realized it wasn't going to happen, I tried even harder. My muscles ached, and I wanted to cry but I couldn't. I tried screaming but my jaw wouldn't move. I remember thinking that I just wanted my mom. This went on for about five minutes, before my body relaxed, and without even a moments notice I was back asleep, dreaming dreams that I could not wake up from. Everytime I dreamt, I'd wake up in another dream.
Could this have been Sleep Paralysis, or was it just my imagination? I never really gave sleep paralysis a second thought, nor had I even been thinking of anything like that. Heck, I couldn't even remember what it was called when I tried to tell my friends.
I haven't been bothered by anything like that, since. I'm just confused, because I can remember vividly what it was like, staring up at my ceiling unable to move, and I still remember how my muscles ached to move.
