I have a friend who sleeps in a highschool dormitory, his name is Stefan.
Last year he came to school really frightened or scared about something. He said during the night, he found himself sitting in his bed, unable to move and immersed in an almost tangible red light. He said he got a feeling of something tring to get inside him!!! he thought he was being possessed. I think this might be the feeling of weight on your chest but he interpreted it as something “trying to get in”.
He said he knew all of his colleagues were sleeping in the same room, and tried to tell them to wake up but couldn’t, how’s that for frustration. It’s a lot scarier when it’s a lot more real (considering that he was clearly in the dormitory with other people). He kept babbling on and on at school about how he thinks that he was possesed and stuff.
Honestly, i’m kind of tired of people coming and saying that they were abducted/possesed during the night and everyone believing him. I am also tired of trying to explain that it is called sleep paralysis accompanied by hallucinations, etc. People always tell me i’m a smart-ass or a freak and don’t listen.
I haven’t had an old hag yet, but the only way I ever got into sleep paralysis was trying to sleep on my back. I used to get it a while ago without even knowing about LD’s or WILD or all that. I think trying to sleep on my back triggers the conscious paralysis for me. Whenever I sleep on my side I don’t get the vibrations or the feeling of slipping away/twitching.
However, I think I may have had something similar to old hag, but it wasn’t a real hag. I have a fear of spiders (ive had many nightmares with spiders ). I had a very normal dream one night and woke up from it to find myself in a thought loop!! I had the feeling of impeding doom that others feel during old hag, but I wasnt paralysed, I could move. I went into the corner of my bed (by the wall) and kept searching my sheets and pillow for some kind of “white spider”. I was absolutely sure that I was seeing it move around in my bed, and I couldn’t believe it was happening. It obviously wasn’t a normal spider, it was huge and white, and there are no spiders in my country larger than a nickle. Eventually I couldn’t find it but was sure that it was still there so I went to sleep in the other room. damn it I hate when this happens.
What was this? Was this old hag?
