    Night Terrors

    I've had them since I was 10 yrs old. Sometime they are more frequent than at other times. I believe that they are somewhat an experience of untrained astral projection. I am laying in my bed trying to go to sleep when suddenly I am "trapped" inside of my body. The only thing I...

    I've been having recurring night terrors

    for 2-3 months now and I'm trying to understand why. I have been having night terrors since I was 13, which was 2 1/2 years ago, and I before that I sleep walked. I've never had this happen though, every single night I wake up and see a man in black staring at me. My life right...

    This is easily one of the most horrific

    nocturnal events of my life so far. It happened at 3am today and I haven't been back to sleep since. It's also going to be a rather long read, so buckle in. This was so utterly disturbing that I'm going to have to sandwich the story itself between a bunch of inconsequential...

    At least once a week I will wake up from sleeping ,jump out of bed, and there is usually screaming/yelling involved. I can't say what I had been dreaming/thinking about because I can't remember. I know this used to happen as a child and its happening again. The doctor and I have...

    Last night I believe I woke up early in the

    morning. I glanced around my vast dark room, and I swear on everything... There was a person just sitting in my chair. Staring at me. I tightly shut my eyes and reopened them, I turned over and it was laying beside me, in my face. Turns out I was still sleeping and I banged my...

    Sometimes, they're nightmares meaning I can

    remember what scared me. Those are easy because I can usually calm myself down. My night terrors, however, just leave me unreasonably terrified. I make up nightmares to tell my family why I wake up screaming. Just last night, I woke up at 5am screaming for 'help' and could...

    I've had night terrors

    since I was 3 years old. My earliest memory gave me a fever so high that it almost killed me. I had to go to the hospital to be stabilized. Since then I've had them on a nightly basis ranging from uncontrollable bouts of fear running through the house to bodies hanging from...

    I've had nightmares and night terrors

    since the day I was born, and I will most likely never grow out of them. I never want to go to sleep ever again. The thought is terrifying. I'm tired, but I can't sleep. The dreams are too much.

    I Wish It Would Stop

    I never used to have night terrors. I used to sleep, well...like a rock really. Then one night I woke up gasping for air, scurrying, my heart trying desprately to pound its way out of my chest. After that, I had them five nights out of the week. Sometimes, I'd wake up from one...

    I have had night terrors

    for about 18 years off and on. Recently, I felt like my last night terror was off the wall. Hard to breathe, heart pounding. I thought, I am having a panic attack. I googled and having panic attacks while you sleep is possible. In my waking life I have anxiety issues, but not...

    I've had night terrors as long as I can remember, started when I was really young maybe 6, and started coming back when I was around 18. I am now 29, and the night terrors have become more severe and frequent. They started off with the sitting bolt upright, filled with fear...
