When you realise you’ve had one too many..
Today I was daydreaming and something happened in my dream that made sense and made me not so angry about England anymore.
Then I see DanisnotonFire profile and I come back to square one.

#no but can you imagine if that was how you learned once a month you weren’t pregnant#by some dude singing songs about the victory of it#you wake up and he’s there and you are so happy#this dude becomes your favorite dude#but then you realize you haven’t seen your friend’s minstrel in a while#I mean everyone notices#like half the people are on the same cycle so for one week out of four your job is just flooded with fucking minstrels everywhere#the cacophony#but Mary over there is all alone#and she’s like my minstrel is late#but we all fucking know#her minstrel has gone off to find her a baby#a nine month journey he must make alone#and until he comes back there is no music in her life#what a glorious world this would be#I love the minstrels (@onionjuggler)
So I begun to watch Parks and Recreation.
It’s supposed to be a comedy, then why did it only make me depressed!?
I love these new "type these words into your tags box and post the first tag that automatically pops up" thingies, so fun. Let’s do another one:
My tags are very… intense

I’m sooo hungry.
I already ate a big plate of pasta and two moderate bowls of ice-cream, why is this happening
A GIF showing what it’s like to wake up with sleep paralysis.
You’re forgetting the terrifying hallucinations
As someone who’s had sleep paralysis multiple times, let me tell you that if your mind has woken up and your body hasn’t DO NOT ATTEMPT TO OPEN YOUR EYES. Wake your body up first by slowly trying to move it, wiggle your toes and hands, then gradually work your way up until your body is fully awake. Opening your eyes when you have sleep paralysis is hard enough, but when you do there is a good chance you can see hallucinations like this.
I also have been the victim of sleep paralysis too many times, its bad enough without hallucinations, and so i thought i would add some info on sleep paralysis for anyone who suffers from it.
- As Shada said, wiggling toes and hands are good ways to snap out of it, although other small body parts work, even humming/talking (although things related to breathing might be more difficult). Just FOCUS on one part, its hard to regain control, but easy to become paralyzed again.
- Once you can move again, dont go right back to sleep, you might get paralyzed again. Or have the worst dreams of your life. Turn on a light, do something relaxing, like reading a book. Its been said that looking at a light before sleeping can prevent sleep paralysis.
- Sleeping on your back rises the chances of you getting sleep paralysis. If you get it a lot, pay attention to what position you are in when it occurs.
- Hallucinations, the best part, arent just things like in the gif above. They could be anything from just dark shapes floating around, to scary monsters and demons to sounds and feeling like something is shaking/touching you. I’ve had an experience where it felt like my bed was shaking while a metallic screeching sound roared whenever i tried to breath. Solution? ignore it. Its all you can do. Hallucinations cant actually do anything to you, and you cant move again if you’re being distracted. And once the paralysis is gone, so are the hallucinations.
- Most people dont really have to worry, they will only get it once or twice in their life. Maybe not even ever! :D
listen to the person above when they say you should NOT open your eyes, because chances that you’ll see something that is uniquely terrifying to you are strong. and if it’s really bad, you might even start seeing scary shit even when your eyes are closed
my tip is to imagine the most ridiculous image/scene ever and keep replaying it in your head, over and over again, like robert downey jr butt naked or hugh dancy being confronted by police for taking pictures of airport carpets, etcetera etcetera
trust me. it works
reblogging because this is important and because you mentioned Hugh Dancy and his ridiculous airport carpet obsession
No but really sleep paralysis is fucking terrifying.
This is excellent advise I must keep in mind.
Sleep Paralysis is, indeed, fucking terrifying (first-hand experience), so if it happened to you or to anyone you know and there’s a possibility it can happen again, read and share this.
I REALLY NEEDED TO KNOW THIS AND OTHERS SHOULD KNOW THIS TOO. This is the very god damn reason I can’t sleep in the fucking dark. I’ve only had it once but that one time was all I needed to erase my long time in therapy and bring me back to step 1. I had no fucking idea what sleep paralysis was and the fact that it gave you hallucinations. So please, if you have debilitating horror triggers, READ THIS. PLEASE DONT SCROLL PAST THIS, YOU MAY NEED THIS.
woah, thanks to this post i actually learned i have sleep paralysis and not lucid dreams… amazing.
I have sleep paralysis during my whole life and ALL OF THIS IS BULLSHIT.
I ALWAYS open my eyes when I have it, and it actually HELPS me to get out of this state. I NEVER had any sort of difficulty on opening them. It’s automatic. It’s the first thing a person does when is waking up. I only realize I have Sleep Paralysis when I try to move myself and I can’t, way after I opened my eyes.
I’ve had it on all the ways I slept. But the most common was when I laid on my side.
I’ve never had bad hallucinations.
The most complex (and somewhat bad) that I had was when I fell asleep in front of my computer and when I was waking up I saw a movie passing on the screen. Then the movie paused out of nowhere.
When I tried to move my body to press play, I couldn’t. When I finally got to move (and properly woke up) I realized I wasn’t watching any fucking movie after all. I’m gonna die with curiosity to know the end.
ACTUALLY. I WANT TO GIVE AN ADVICE.
I am not sure if this works, because it only happened once with me.
This occurrence that I described was the last time that I remember having Sleep Paralysis. It was a few months ago.
Because it was too complex, it took a while for me to wake up. And I tried to move myself in almost any sort of ways and nothing worked. This one was too deep.
I was too annoyed, so at some point I screamed “LET ME WAKE UP!” Obviously I didn’t really scream, I had an hallucination that I was screaming.
But about a second after that, I accidentally moved my head to the other side, so I was looking to the other side of my bedroom, after this I immediately woke up.
You might not have control over the members of your body, but you have control of your thoughts. Logically you would have better control over anything in your head or near it. So try to move your head first. Try to move it to every side and position that you think you can, while secondarily trying to move your arms or other parts of your body.
Once within your hallucination, you accomplish to move your head to the correct side, you’ll probably wake up.
See if it works.
PS. I do advise not going back to sleep right after you had it. I never do.
IT’S ALWAYS TEA TIME!
