Does anyone here legitimately suffer from any sleep disorders?
If yay, have they affected your general mental well-being and/or what have been your personal experiences with them.
If nay post some incessant flamey bullshit :hai:
As OP I'll lead the charge.
As a child I suffered from night terrors, and recently worked out that I also suffered frequently from sleep paralysis.Sleep paralysis which consisted at the time of me being unable to move and absolutely convinced a man was about to plunge a knife into my back.This would happen many times a night,usually once or twice a week.It was utterly terrifying and ruined my sleeping habits from ages 6-11.
I still occasionally suffer from sleep paralysis though now it is more irritating than anything, just a particularly shit way to wake up in the middle of the night:mad:
Now I didn't think much of these sleeping maladies until tonight. Why tonight? you ask!.Well through a rather bizarre set of events, I've found myself in a situation where being stabbed to death in my sleep seems a lot more plausible than on most
other nights. Apparently I've associated the memories of wee little plebert suffering sleep paralysis with being stabbed in my slumber, because I've suffered severe paranoia/sleep paralysis/checking over the shoulder to make sure there's no one in the room that shouldn't be.
Shit is fucked,never experienced anything like it.
Anyone have any idea what the fuck is going on here?
Due to work I've slept for roughly an hour in the last two days, and this is a known trigger to sleep paralysis as well.
I know a thread was recently made pertaining to ghostly encounters, and in my experience many of these "I woke up to a presence in my room" spooky scenes are just people rationalising the sheer mindfuckery of sleep paralysis away with ghosts, demons etc.Such is human nature.
So, Mind & Body what fucks up your beauty sleep?
