    I thought I'd share my experience as a regular sufferer of sleep paralysis as well.
    I've experienced about maybe 40 to 50 episodes of sleep paralysis in my life and each one still horrifies me, even if I know why it happens. It goes usually like this:
    I lie on my back, slowly drifting to sleep. I feel my muscles relax and start to dream (that's the comfortable part). Then, I sleep for some time, dreamless, and become suddenly "dream-aware" again. I notice that I am again dreaming, but this time, it's a nightmare of such proportions, that I panic and struggle to end this...well, nightmare. I know that if I just could move, I could "make it". Do you know those scenes in movies where someone is hanging off a cliff by one hand and can only save themselves by administering all their strength to do a full body pull up with just some fingers? Imagine the amount of strenght you'd put into that, if it were you. You know that your life depends on that pull up, so you're driven by adrenaline and assemble a strenght you didn't know you had...
