Have you ever gotten a sleep paralysis? I did, last week. It was easily THE W O R S T experience EVER.
So as I've stated before, I have terrible sleeping habits, staying up till 2:00 am constantly, sometimes 3:00 or 4:00 watching Muse interviews or gigs cuz I don't have a life x'D
So this day I was helping my mom in the kitchen but I couldn't bare the sleepiness anymore and my mom told me to go to sleep for a little bit and she'd wake me up to eat. So I grabbed one of those thingies that cover your eyes, don't remember what they're called, and went to sleep.
I slept for a while then kinda woke up, my body was really tired though so I kept on doing that where I wake up but instantly go back to sleep repeatedly times. I knew I had to get up soon though so the next time I kinda woke up I decided to push my blanket aside and finally get out of bed but I couldn't. It took only a matter of seconds for me to realize I couldn't move at all. I panicked and then it got worse. I started feeling an intense squeeze in my chest. The pressure was so intense my whole upper body was shaking. I panicked even more when I realised the squeeze was stronger where my heart is supposed to be, I thought I was getting a heart attack. I tried taking deep breaths since I read this can save you from am actual heart attack but when I breathed in deeply, the shaking grew even more violently, when I exhaled though it seem to decrease significantly. But the squeezing came back rapidly. Emo me thought "well this is it, this is where I die. Oh well, living wasn't that great anyway" I didn't really care for a brief moment till the thought came to me, "I never saw Muse live” and with that thought I knew I couldn't give up. I kept taking deep breath after deep breath, fought with all my body and all my strength. I tried calling out for help but I could barely feel my lips. I couldn't quit though, I really thought I was dying, and I couldn't before seeing Muse live. I had to see them live, hear their new music and upcoming works, freaking Survival started playing in my head and fighting the paralysis with literally everything I could think of, I finally broke free.
