My first experience was scary as fuuuck, since I didn't know what was happening and hadn't been aware of what sleep paralysis was yet. It was the typical experience - the dreaded feeling, unable to move, seeing a shadowy torso figure hovering, etc.
The latest one, which happened years ago, was much more different than what I've read with other people's experiences. I may have been asleep for about 2 hrs when all of a sudden, I woke up with the feeling of being watched. The only light I had in my room was from the moonlight but it was still quite dark. I turned to my side and noticed this massive shadowy "mist", no shape in particular, about 2 ft away, and I could tell that it was fixated on me (just that feeling when you know that it's for "you") and it started to inch closer.
Mind fucked, I quickly jumped out of bed and then felt this tremendous pressure on my shoulders, causing me to go on all fours to the floor - tried to get up but couldn't. I'm still looking at the dark mist as I'm crawling towards the light switch across the room. This dreadful feeling felt like it was getting more and more intense. When I finally got to the light switch, I yelled and flipped the lights on and bam, there was light and there was this eerily silence. I just sat there thinking, *what the hell just happened?* and was obviously still freaked out.
I was sober before going to bed, not stressed out or anything, just a normal night so am still wondering what I had experienced. Got the slight chills just typing all this out.
