Sleep paralysis

In my thirties I was addicted to valium. Valium is a tranquilizer and its very addictive. I used to have anxiety attacks and I was allowed to have this drug handy at all times.

OK it caused sleep paralysis. Your brain would be awake but you couldn't move a muscle.

These episodes had two characteristics. Youd be laying there and it would feel like someone had you in a bearhug. Then you would gradually be able to move. When you did move you would be exhausted and fall asleep again.

I eventually got off of that s*** and joined the real world.

  • I used to be an atheist but I had a drug addiction that defied every therapy for years. When a beloved Christian lady saw me on the street and smiled at me and handed a New Testament, I knew i had to read it. Even when I did not want to; her smiles seemed indelible in my subconscious, I still did read it. One day, I summoned up courage to pray (something like; "Jesus just help me out if you exist . . .")and that did it. The drugs were gone! I have been reading the New Testament for two years (the very copy that lady gave me and I don't need another). I do not attend church but i know that I am a Christian now; I have peace!
