I get sleep paralysis a lot so I did a piece on it for the nightmares show for the UPPERCASE gallery. I even had four bouts of it one night after I had researched the project. I always feel like I'm suffocating, like I'm on the brink of death. It's a scary sensation.
sometimes I have to answer questions in my dream to be able to breathe...I know it's weird... though sometimes I just try to move my arms till I wake up... whenever that happens to me I always feel like I'm about to run out of air...
it's a scary experience, I usually get sleep paralysis.
...like a demon has hold of you and all that you can do is try to scream out in hopes that your consciousness will return you to your body, shaking you from the nightmare. A nightmare that has hold of your very being...threatening to throw you into the pit of dispair and destruction. Yes...I do know what that's like....all too well.
