James Rieper: Has anyone here had any experience with night terrors?
Burr: James Rieper: Has anyone here had any experience with night terrors?My daughter was getting them, but she is getting better (she is 2). What was really bad was that she had them on an airplane over the Atlantic. Trying to calm her down while screaming in a plane full of people knowing full well there wasn't anything I could do about it is a nightmare in itself.I used to have sleep paralysis, pretty frequently into my mid/late 20's. Usually if I took naps during the day. Laying there trying to get my arms to move or trying to roll myself off of my bed. With enough will power I could force myself awake. I honestly found it more intriguing then terrifying because I knew what was going on.I still have moments like those, but most of the time it is more like I am dreaming that I am lying in bed other then "I am awake and cannot move". Dream that I get up and take a shower only to wake up in the middle of it to..get up and take a shower.
Abe Vigoda's Ghost: They don't?
Son of Thunder: James Rieper: Has anyone here had any experience with night terrors?For a while during my teen years. I don't remember much about the content of the dreams, but I remember on several occasions waking up to find myself bolting out of bed and running up the stairs.Freaked my family out, but eventually they just stopped.(What little I do remember is straight out of an alien abduction story. Lots of lying immobile and helpless on a table while shadowy figures stood over me. If I believed in such things, I'd be tempted to call them UFO-related PTSD flashbacks.)
nmrsnr: Some of those are pretty neat. But for horror photography Joshua Hoffine (link PNSFW gore) is the man.[www.gorestruly.com image 850x850]Bonus since he uses his daughter in the photos.
James Rieper: Nothing like that for me, but had constant vivid dreaming (including frequent nightmares) until I was in my thirties. My wife had to learn to push down on my chest if she had to wake me up, otherwise I'd sit bolt upright.
Pentaxian: Was anyone else thinking of the photos used in "Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children"? Except the ones used that book were unintentionally creepy.
