I hate this shit, whenever it occurs it messes up my whole day usually. It just happened to me about 20 minutes ago, maybe a little longer. I woke up at around 7:30 am, used the bathroom, but I wasn't feeling very tired, but decided that it was obviously too early to get up. I laid back down and something told me that if I do go back to sleep, Sleep Paralysis might occur, but I was like fuck it, I wanna sleep. So I finally fell asleep, and around 9:15am maybe, it happened, its like my mind was asleep but my body was awake?? So after maybe 30 seconds of this horror, I wake up, but whenever this happens to me, I feel utterly exhausted, and my eyes are always heavy and I always want to go back to sleep, So I was like OK its not gonna happen again If i go back to sleep, well I went back to sleep and shorty after dosing off, I get this very strange and horrifying sensation in my body and its like my mind is racing to wake up, all while having these horrible thoughts like I am going to die and other weird shit. The sensation continues and a few seconds later I wake up. And im like thats it, im getting up for good. So now im up, but I feel like im half alseep, Im not even considering going back to sleep now, But i feel miserable.

Why does this happen??? and Why did I have a feeling that it was going to happen before it even did??? Could it be due to the Abilify, since I have been taking it before I go to sleep?? But if thats the case, it didn't happen Monday night, and im on an even lower dose than before.

ughh, it never stops, i swear

I don't think that's sleep paralysis, but I could be wrong. I was under the impression that sleep paralysis is when your body is asleep but your mind is awake - i.e. you wake up and you can't move your body.

i get that all the time. once or twice a week probably. i think its from bad sleep, with me going to bed late and waking up early. it sucks, i'll have my eyes closed and know i'm awake but my body is asleep and i can't move. it's kinda scary. i get out of it by rolling over with everything i have, but it's really hard. if i can't roll over, i'll just lay there and let it ride, and get this weird, tingling sensation all over my body. after that, it's easier for me to roll over. it usually takes me about 10-20 seconds to get out of it. really annoying.

hey soulbro, what's new with you these days?

I get SP like once every other month or so. Basically to me it's just sort of like my body wont move but my mind is awake, and i have like a minute or two of pure hell where i try to wake up but my mind is like so far gone. It almost feels like dying? not that I would know, but I imagine dying to feel like that, maybe. I feel like I'm floating away into a dark place or something. it's pretty weird/hard to explain. It doesn't really freak me out though, it's kind of cool. hahaha, sorta.

thanks for the replies

Its a really weird experience that kinda makes me feel worse throughout the whole day. I wish there was a way to prevent, although it doesn't happen very often. Maybe once a month or so.

Kari, I still got you on my buddy list so i'll say whats up lol
