Being held down in my sleep........?
I've been waking up to a feeling where i'm being held down.. this has happend to me before but it's been happening to me a lot latly.. it happend 3 or 4 times lastnight.. I looked it up and there is a disorder called sleep paralysis.. it says that when we are asleep our body is paralized so we don't hurt ourselfs.. and ur brain wakes up before ur body does n that's why u can't move.. but idk if that's the case.. because if we can't move in our sleep then whey do i sometimes wake up with brusise n scratches..lol. or i go to sleep in one position n wake up in another.. but anyways.. all of the time i woke up being held down.. i couldn't move. couldn't speak or scream.. i was screaming in my head n for some reason i thought it was something evil or something.. so i was screaming at it telling it to leave me alone and that i belonged to god.. i screamed for a few minutes and then it it left n i could move again.. it seem like i was tired from all of that and i fell back to sleep.. faster then i normaly do.. can anybody help me with this.. or has anyone had the same thing happen to them?
