This blog has about 3500 entries. The old entries–each an individual page of its own–get various levels of attention, from one visitor a year to a couple hundred a day. One of my favourite entries falls somewhere inbetween those levels of activity.
Now the page is becoming this little sleep paralysis support community. Every week or two, somebody comes by and leaves their description of an episode:
Last night my paralysis started as I felt as if something was crawling in bed with me. Next thing that happened was paralysis and crushing on my chest. An image came and called itself the Hound of Hell and told me that Satan was not done with me yet. I tried calling for my friends but it seemed that each time I screamed, the crushing was more, I also am recovering from some broken ribs from a skiing accident 2 weeks ago, Dont know if that contributed to this. After what seemed like several minutes the paralysis went away Iand I came into what I guess would be awareness of my surroundings.
It’s cool to think that the page has turned into something more than a brief blog entry, and might be a little solace to those suffering from the disorder.
