Freaked me the fuck out. I was awake but could not move a muscle. I live alone so no one was there to shake me out of it. I tried to call out for Falco but nothing worked, couldn't move a thing or make a sound. It lasted about a minute or so and I eventually just relaxed and went back to sleep. Woke up normally shortly after and grabbed my phone to google what the fuck that shit was all about. Turns out it's more common than I could even imagine.
Different cultural and religious beliefs attribute this natural phenomenon to alien visitations or demonic or spiritual visits. I saw no apparitions or anything of the sort, just kinda freaked me the fuck out that I was conscious but unable to move or make a sound.
And no its not AIDS!!!
