... in response to Sleep Paralysis Diagnosis
  1. Layla Anaya Layla Anaya United States says:

    I started having sleep paralysis since at the age of 15 years old, I'm 42 now. It was frightening at that age even in my twenties, I would sleep with a night light. It wasn't until a few years ago, I learned I can turn it to something pleasant lucid dreaming, yes you can control your dreams, when you are having an episode, all you have to do is relax, and you can feel yourself flying out of your body, I know it sounds crazy but try it, it's amazing. I dont get sleep paralysis that much anymore, but when I do, its treat because i have the ability to control it and fly anywhere I want to.  Good luck!
