In a recent post, I forget what thread it was, someone pointed to a wiki article about sleep paralysis.
This: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sleep_paralysis
I had experienced this in the past and it's horrible, although I don't know if this is common but the article fails to mention it, I also seem to lose the ability to yell, the most I can muster is the tiniest of whispers, like my first one happened when I was 12 I remember it I was screaming for my parents, or trying, but nothing would come out and I'd try until it hurt but nothing.
Having been reminded of it last night I went to bed and I had a dream about you guessed it having sleep paralysis. And like I have been diagnosed by the doctor of having some crazy named thing, when I was young, that makes you overly calm, like I never worry about anything at all, drivers test I'm not nervous, public speaking nope, walking in a dark forest and hearing crunching of leaves behind me like someones following me not a bother, but after having had that dream I couldn't sleep I layed there for 3 hours too scared to fall asleep until I got up and went and played some guitar until I had to go to work.
Anyone else have any not able to sleep stories?

The most truth I've heard in the pit.
Yes, I've woken up before when my body was still in its REM cycle. It was unnerving laying there unable to move.
I can remember a few times when i was younger i had a bad dream then for about 5 mins after a woke up i was afraid to close my eyes again, but i evenually just fell asleep again
I had very bad insomnia for a long time last year. I tried to get some sleeping pills but I'm not allowed them. It passed eventually.
