"Sleep paralysis" is actually very common (By the way, I didn't try interpreting the Spanish, so I hope I'm not repeating anything here). I've experienced it many times, as have a lot of people I know. There are health forums that discuss it under the "sleep" threads. I wouldn't be bothered by the paralysis part of the experience, but it is the almost unmistakable "presence" in the room, which includes "it" seemingly trying to "affect" me in some way, or steal energy from me - seriously! My energy level is always low the next day. Just talking about it will probably bring a visitor tonight - oh well. Chris

Chris,

Is there a particular reason it happens? do other family members go through this also?

I'm sorry......what can I say? I hope it goes away?

Elaina

Question Hag Syndrome

What is "gracias de nuevo?"

Chris - did you get your "visitor" the other night?

Thanks!

Thanks again.

Some more examples:
de nuevo = again.
Inténtalo de nuevo = Try it again.

I apologize for not responding sooner. I actually forgot that I had posted on this part of the board.

bleitzow, No, I didn't receive any visitors the night of my post on this thread, nor have I since then.

Elaina, I'm not sure why it happens to others, but it does seem more likely to happen to me when I try go to bed without being very sleepy. I remember being at work many years ago, and there were five other people in the room. This subject somehow came up, and everyone, including myself, had experienced this sleep paralysis. As far as my family goes, I don't recall the subject even coming up. I'll have to remember to ask them.

Sosia, Greetings to you as well. If it hasn't happened to you by now, it probably won't. It happened to me once when I was about ten years old, then again a few years later. Then only a few times a year as an adult. In general...no big deal.

Chris
