My story is based on experiences I have had in my home usually when I am ready to sleep.
This is an issue which has bothered and scared me a lot quite recently. I'm not going to mention a single experience because it has become something that happens to me every other day... So its part of my life now...
Basically, I may be asleep or drifting off, when I feel this pressure on me. In this state I feel like I cannot breath... I definitely can't move and I can't speak. On many occasions I have tried shouting out my mums or sisters names as they are in the room... But it hasn't worked. I also attempt movement usually starting from my toes upwards... And it worked for a while but after a while it didn't have any effect.
At first I was quite dubious as to whether I was experiencing sleep paralysis or an actual paranormal experience. Until one occasion, where I found myself actually becoming free of this...pressure, but almost immediately I felt as if actual hands slammed me back down. This isn't the scariest thing about it. Sometimes I feel as if something is whispering in my ear or I'm being stroked or forced to see flashing images... But I always close my eyes hoping not to see anything that will freak me out.
On many occasions, I have felt that I am coming out of the grip, as I see myself getting up and walking out of my body almost and walking away, but then its like I come back to state and realise I'm still being held. Occasionally I have struggled with every part of me to become free of this hold and been freed to find myself shaking with the intense force I'm using to escape.
I'm never usually asleep during these experiences and they happen to me day or night, whenever I am ready to sleep or napping. It did happen to me in school on one occasion, I was falling asleep in class (I know it sounds bad) and I felt the held down feeling again... And the whispering... I didn't want to struggle too hard incase people saw. I genuinely do not know if this is indeed sleep paralysis or an actual paranormal experience.
If anyone can help me with this information I could possibly study it more and begin to understand what is really happening to me...
