One night I went to sleep as normal. After a few hours I suddenly woke up like I was startled by something. However, something really strange happened; although my mind was awake and alert I couldn’t move my body. My hearing and vision was normal. I could move my eyes but that was about all. It’s the most horrifying feeling of helplessness. I couldn’t even cry out even though mind mind already wanted to. It lasted for several seconds then I could sit up. I could feel my body again and cry out. The most amazing feeling in the world; to be normal again.
