Night Terror or Sleep Paralysis


DSCN1185 - Copy

Watercolor painting, 11″ x 15″.

I called this painting Night Terror because it sounds cooler but the correct term is “sleep paralysis”. I have experienced this several times. Being conscious of my body but paralyzed while a nightmare plays out that I can’t distinguish from reality. The only function of my body I could make do anything was my voice, unable to form words I would just try to scream, knowing the only way to be set free would be my wife shaking me awake. Yeah it’s awful. Thankfully I haven’t had a fully fledged one of these for at least a year. 

The Wikipedia article is really interesting.
