A few nights ago, I had this dream, where I was sleeping in my bed exactly the way I was (lying on my back) and from the corner of my eyes, from the left end of my bed, I saw a black figure, about 3 meter high (looked like a girl) and within seconds, it started growing, and I couldn’t move my head to the right to see what it was as if I had been paralyzed, all I could do was get up, which I did and opened my room’s door to run away (as I can reach my door’s handle from my bed) but a black mist came in from the door and I couldn’t see anything… now I thought it was really happening until I woke up, thank god!
These types of scary, ‘confused for real’ dreams, I have had previously as well so it’s not new to me, but what is it? Is this called sleep paralysis? Or is it something else? It’s really scary especially because the dream starts from my very room, and I’m usually in the same sleeping position, which again adds to the panic!
