I struggle with frequent SP, or sleep paralysis and it’s getting to a point where I’m scared to sleep at all. I understand the scientific explanation for it, but it still feels supernatural and spiritual. I’m not scared of many things, but this absolutely terrifies me. I don’t know how to overcome this.
When I’m awake but unable to move or breathe I panic and it’s so hard to wake up. I wonder if I’ll have a panic attack in my sleep and die and no one finds me. That may be extreme, but it’s a fear nonetheless. I read articles on how to wake up and show myself that it’s a normal chemical imbalance and nothing more, but it’s hard.
