Does Sleep Paralysis Exist? Apparently So
You wake up in the middle of the night unable to move a muscle. Panicked, you feel a presence in the room and see the image of a ghost or a demon gliding toward you. The figure approaches you, sits on your chest and puts its hands around your neck. You actually feel it strangling you and you try to scream, but you can’t even open your mouth.
This may sound like something out of a horror movie, but it is an actual phenomenon many people describe experiencing. Though the ghostlike figures aren’t real, the physical sensation and fear are genuine. Experts say it’s a typical episode of sleep paralysis.
