Breaking This Sleep Habit
I have a sleep paralysis question/story.
Lately, since my bf started his job 2 weeks ago, I've been waking up feeling a little bit scared. I've gotten used to seeing him in the mornings. Especially since the pandemic started. We've been each other's major support system, as there is a curfew where I am living and we are not allowed to meet up with others.
My bf woke up this morning to go to work. I woke up to say goodbye then I tried going back to sleep again. A few minutes into my sleep, I start feeling scared but I ignore it. I start hearing a noise coming from the wall and then I feel like something jumped in my bed. At this point, I'm scared! But I am still conscientious in my sleep. I know it has something to do with the sleep state my mind is in…
So I ignore it.
A minute or two later is when the sleep paralysis dream starts:
I am in my bedroom. I hear someone kicking the door of my apartment. I can't move.
All of a sudden this really tall woman with no face comes in with a pink suitcase. She walks over to me and gives me a piece of paper to hold in my hand. She tells me to be quiet and go back to sleep. She leaves my room. I hear her rummaging in the kitchen. I try to call or text my bf… But for some reason, I can't seem to be able to use my phone.
I try to move but I can't. I'm still aware that this must be a dream… So I am not entirely panicking. But I am hoping that when this dream ends there is no paper in my hand.
I finally wake up.
I clasp my hands together - no paper. I open the curtains, lie in bed for a little while and just watch a YouTube video to entertain myself a little before fully waking up.
I haven't had a sleep paralysis dream in a long time! And I don't want to have another one anytime soon. I'm guessing it has something to do with the change in my sleep pattern… My bf not being there and that when my bf wakes up he wakes me up too and it interrupts my sleep cycle. I'm thinking the best way to prevent this is to just wake up with him. He doesn't wake up that early - 7:30, so it's okay.
Any other ideas or similar experiences? *And maybe the fact that I was listening to this podcast to go back to sleep wasn't helping. It was the glitch in the matrix 2 episode.
Be safe and have a great week uglies!
