I don't know if it was a nightmare, or if it was actually sleep paralysis (I've never been diagnosed with it, so that would be new and terrifying). I just woke up from a dream I don't remember, and couldn't move. It felt like something was pressing down on my back, and once the sensation passed, all I felt was panic. I thought it felt like something was just sitting on me, waiting for me to say uncle. I intensely dislike feeling no control like that. Especially when I'm all groggy and disoriented. Being able to finally sit up was a relief.
This hasn't ever happened to me before, so I'm a little freaked out. Writing about it is helping calm me down, though, so there's that. Although I've had to retype several of these sentences about four or five times now due to my hands shaking and flinging typos all over my screen. The Ny-Quil should help me pass out and forget this whole thing in just a bit.
