last night i think i had the most horrible sleeping experience ever.
in the dream i was having, i was in an armchair flying up a rope (like a cable car) above an empty ballroom. when i said something like 'i want to go there' i fell to the ground, in the chair, and i could feel someone/thing pushing me to the wall.
i tried speaking but when i did no sound would come out and my mouth would barely move.
at this point i woke up and also, briefly couldn't move, and was sputtering at the same time, as if i'd come out from water and taken a huge gulp of air and my heart was racing.
i'm guessing it was similar to what people go through when they've thought that a ghost was sitting on their chest etc.
has anyone else ever had weird dream / sleep paralysis / weirdness?
