Well not exactly. I have been suffering from sleep paralysis for about ten years now. During these episodes when I am asleep I feel a presence pressing down on my chest and I cannot move. Sometimes it is accompanied by a feeling of being choked. I used to think I was being visited by evil forces at night (don't laugh) but now I now that these dreams are nothing but manifestations of a known sleep disorder called sleep paralysis. Even with this knowledge...the experiences still frighten the heebie-jeebies out of me. I used to get these dreams once a week but now they seldom occur. Has this happened to anyone else out there? If so how do you guys cope with it?
