Nightmares Does anyone have nightmares like in between sleep paralysis? I've been having a reoccurring nightmare of something clawing at me. I began to think it was some demon or ghost; now I am thinking it is all in my mind. I don't know... These are the symptoms of the nightmare: Chest pains & needle prickling sensations Being trapped in sleep paralysis Drained & weakened feelings Tired & depressed emotions Lack of empathy afterwards, drained Clawed, nails on my skin, bitten Dark undertones and whispering It's very painful, and it doesn't feel imagined I began thinking it was possessing me...and I sought out help on paranormal forums. But I don't think that is going to help. I need someone to give me practical advice. What actually is going on? It's so violent, I can't control it. I can only get rid of it through shielding and praying. What if I don't want to pray? Am I creating this? Is this a chemical imbalance causing it? I have been losing a lot of sleep over it. If this is in the wrong place, please feel free to move this.
