My husband woke in a cold sweat, complaining of someone holding him down in as he slept.
“Honey, it’s just sleep paralysis, like the doctor told you. It’s just your body is paralysed but your mind is awake and playing tricks on you.”
Sitting up in bed, he continued to breath heavily, “I know, I know. It’s just so real, I can’t shake the feeling I’m being smothered.”
“Relax, just go back to sleep, everything will be okay.”
Nervously, I watched as he fell back into unconsciousness. I have to be more brave this time and finish it, otherwise he’s going to catch on.
