Once upon a time I heard dead people

Standard

For a large portion of my life I would have these weird moments in the middle of the night where I would wake up from a dream and hear whispering and noises but be completely unable to move or speak, I was half convinced that I got possessed a lot at night, or that maybe I would leave my body and wake up before I was fully back in it, I am still thinking one of those options could be it even if the doctor says it’s not, I was too scared for a long time to say anything to a doctor because I was pretty sure I would be getting a one way trip to a padded room with a little white jacket(in retrospect that sounds like something I may enjoy now) so I just kept it to myself and lived with the horror that is waking up like that, my best guess is it would only last a minute or so, but that minute or so felt like FOREVER, I feel for everyone who is paralyzed because that feeling sucks, and not being able to speak, ups the anti more, but the real kicker is feeling like something is coming to get you and you can’t do shit about it.  I wouldn’t be able to sleep for hours afterwards and I would always end up moving to a different room to feel safe, after I got married my husband started noticing my strange disappearances in the middle of the night, and thought he was doing something wrong, so I finally had to explain to him what was going on and he urged me to ask a doctor about it, well I did and turns out it has a name, Sleep Paralysis also turns out there is absolutely fucking nothing you can do about it, so It still happens every so often and I still really was not  100% sure that I was not hearing dead people and  leaving my body, but hey does it matter, there really wouldn’t be shit I could do about that either…

Last night I slept in the recliner chair because it was the only way I could get my ankle comfortable, and I have no idea why except maybe that I am not used to sleeping in a recliner I was dreaming that Coyotes were after me because I was outside sleeping in one of those long patio chairs, and that’s when it happened I suddenly woke up, but not really because I couldn’t move or speak and in the distance I could hear the faint sounds of coyotes screaming(is it called screaming? If not it should be because that is what it sounds like) anyways that is when I knew It was just sleep paralysis and I gotta tell you I was a little said about this, because I think it would be way more interesting to tell people that I traveled outside my body at night and talked to the dead, than to tell them I have yet another medical condition….maybe I will just tell that story anyways I mean it’s not like they can ask me to prove it or anything right?
