I had this one bad experience with sleep paralysis and it’s stayed with me forever. When I was maybe 14 or 15 I was laying in my bunk bed at the top bunk. I was drifting in and out of consciousness for a few minutes until I decided to get up and do something. But it wasn’t till I tried when I noticed, I just couldn’t move. I couldn’t move, I couldn’t take a deep breath, I was just frozen. My eyes were fully opened and I could see what was happening around me. At first, nothing happened, I was just staring at the ceiling and trying to get my body to move. But… some things started happening. I started hearing gradual whispers, getting so loud it sounded like they flooded the room. Then from out of know where, I see these long and red claws come from the side railing of the bed. The claws came over my face, covering it as I heard one last whisper “ I’m taking you with me” but just then, I was able to move and never had another moment like that again. I’ve still had sleep paralysis but… I keep my eyes closed and nothing has happened like that ever again.
