Trip Reports - Sleep paralysis

Background

  • Date: Late March 2017
  • Gender: Male
  • Weight: 45kg / 100lbs
  • Age: 26

My daily routine consists of waking up around 6:30AM and leaving for work by 7AM. Work lasts until 5:00PM and I get home around 6PM. For a few days I had been working longer than usual hours at another job and I wasn't getting a decent amount of rest. I went to bed at 12:15AM. I fall asleep within 10 minutes.

Experience

Sleep paralysis begins - I remember opening my eyes and looking at my nightstand where my clock read 3:42AM. There is whispering outside of my door and I hear my parents.

Female: "Is Potato asleep?"

Male: "What?"

Female: "Yes. He's asleep."

I hear steps going down the stairs to the basement outside my door.

My door opens. I try to speak up but I can't. Breathing is fine. Slow and deep. More than paralysis I feel extreme exhaustion. I don't have the energy to open my mouth. I feel lethargic.

A dark figure walks into my room from the right side of my field of view. It's the female. I see her hair in a ponytail. She's a completely black outline filled in with scribbles, almost a static silhouette. She makes her way over to the left side of my room and looks out the window. I manage to speak up albeit mumbling. "Mmnno. Mm awake." She doesn't hear me and makes her way back out of the room. My eyes close and I fall back asleep.

Sleep paralysis ends

Post-Experience

I don't sleep well and wake up at 4:02AM. I fade in and out of sleep. Knowing I have work in the morning prevents me from going back into a deep sleep.

Upon speaking with my parents the next day they inform me that they went to sleep before 1AM.
