No you don’t! I also can tell when I am in a dream (ironically the “normal” dreams are off just enough for me to know I’m dreaming but anything causing fear I do not know I am dreaming) but during sleep paralysis you truly think you’re awake and being unable to talk or move is frightening.

I am sorry. I do not want to downvote you, but I also don’t want you to think I “like” your comment. Sleep paralysis is not fun!

I know. but I am used to it now that I have it almost every months. It's more frequent before. Maybe now because I don't afraid of it

I have sleep paralysis. My husband has learned that if I fall asleep on the couch and don’t respond to his voice, that he needs to come grab my hand. I have always been able to hear him but cannot respond. For some reason the movement of my hand wakes me up. I am always on my back on the couch if I fall asleep but generally sleep on my side in my bed. I am a light sleeper and hear the smallish dog’s feet hit the floor. There’s definitely delusions happening during my sleep paralysis, the ones I’ve remembered have been a small ghost couple through the window on the door. (My house now and one house I grew up in. I somehow always fall asleep on a couch facing a door. Definitely subconscious.)

I agree with the article, I really think I have it less frequently now that I get enough REM and deep sleep each night. I used to have restless sleep, eventually if it was basically 7-8 hours:

I've had this once in my life before while i woke up in the middle of the night and it was a really scary experience, didn't last too long tho... I think it was a few minutes but felt like seconds... I just slept again.

I think I experienced it before when I was little. it made my whole body go numb and I tried to move but I couldn't. I almost felt dead. but i did not see any monsters or stuff
