Don't Try This Combo...

I've had sleep paralysis before.

It was my own fault when after a tiring day, I drank coke and after a few hours went to sleep. At first I slept and fell into a sort of half conscious/half unconscious state, felt like I wasn't getting enough air. I tried moving and found that I couldn't. After focusing my efforts on moving just my arm so I could attempt to get up, I regained full consciousness. Still tired and not sure what the heck happened, I fell asleep again. Same thing happened, only then did I realize that the caffeine from the coke was keeping my brain active so it couldn't shut down properly. I kept myself awake for an hour after that before I was finally too tired to stay awake.

People say they see strange things during the experience. I saw nothing, although I was only in for at most 5 seconds each time.

Lesson of the day: don't drink coke before bed, it's not nice.
