When I got up, I ran to my mother and told her our house was haunted. A ghost was holding me in bed. Later that night I even started speaking to "the ghost"
"I know you're in here. Why are you haunting me" type of things
After explaining to my mother what had happenned, we talked about the possibility of a visit from an angel.
Little did I know this was such a mild episode. Later came earthquakes, killer gnomes (yep, the garden type), blood rivers,. . .etc.
At least during the later episodes, I knew what they really were!

I was visiting friends and asked if I could take a brief nap on their couch (they are aware of my narcolepsy). They said fine and I was asleep within a minute. I awoke and immediately noticed a large plastic tarantula spider on the ottoman by the couch. I was amused and assumed it to be a gag by my friends. In seconds, I was again asleep. Upon awaking again, the 'spider' was gone. I asked them about their gag, but they knew not what I meant (they really didn't!). I decided
I had had my first hypnogoggic hallucination I explained to my friends what I thought had occurred. I understand these HH's are usually or often terrifying, but mine was fortunately only amusing. Later, I asked my neurologist if this was a hypnogoggic hallucination. He replied 'Yes.'

I was way too young to remember my first one ( I bet they were crazy).
After a messed up divorce that put my daughters in far distance away from me (and in a bit more dangerous of a living situation), I had a dream me and my youngest daughter were lying in the grass (place unknown). We were just laughing and playing...being silly. She leaned over to whisper something in my ear. As she leaned in to me the sky got dark. I can't remember what it was she said, but right after she said it I woke up bawling like a baby. In many of my dreams (and while exiting my SP) it feels like someone quickly replaces my blood with liquid fear.
At the time (and all too often because of mywhackJob Ex) I didn't know when I would see them again.
It truly sucked.

The first that I can really vividly remember is when i was about 4 or 5 years old. My parents were having card night and I can recall hearing the voices even in my dreams. I had a horrible nightmare about this really bad guy driving in a car down our street and the headlights were shining through my bedroom window. I remember waking up in a pool of sweat and feeling just miserable while I waddled to the bathroom a couple feet away to pee. While sitting there probably sleeping once again, (LOL), I remember vividly seeing a 'headlight beam' coming up through the drain of the bathtub. It completely freaked me out and I realized after a couple seconds that I was able to actually scream. My dad came to my rescue and put me back to bed. He assured me it was all just a bad dream, and gave me my elephant wind up music stuffed animal and told me to go back to bed. After that I can vividly once again remember seeing that same 'headlight beam' coming through the darn keyhole of the doorknob on door next to my bed (leading into the bathroom). This time I just sucked it up and didn't scream, but it was super scary all the same. All this makes sooooo much sense now!

I always assumed it was something normal and a phenomem normal people have. I was under the impression that the word "daydreaming" - referred to having those visions.
I never knew it was something unique to a condition (later diagnosed as Narcolepsy)

Dont worry my parents weren't terrible. They were just really tired and tired of me screaming.
Another one I had as a child was the easter bunny. I still totally believe he's real!!!!

I find most of my hallucinations these days are more obscure, they don't have visual or auditory queues, they are just obscure thoughts that are disconnected and don't make sense in any context whatsoever. An example being thinking my cats were WAD files from the video game DOOM laying on my bed. Anyone else have these? (maybe I just play video games too much )

There were huge bugs everywhere in my room. I didn't know what to do... I felt frozen laying in bed. I tried to yell, but couldn't. I finally was able to get out of bed and I ran to my parents room.
When you're 11 thats not too cool with your parents anymore! When I got to their room I was still jumping and wiping them off of me. I couldn't get the bugs to go away. My parents were very upset I woke them up. I have no idea what they thought... I was terrified and I swear the bugs were everywhere.
It's kinda funny now, but it wasn't then!
My mom finally told me I could sleep with them. LoL... obviously that doesn't really take care of the BUGS though!!! I layed down between them, and kept wiping the bugs off. My mom got so so so mad that I kept moving. I think maybe my parents thought I was just that desperate for attention or something lol.
I'm sure my face was great too... I was so confused as to why mom and dad couldn't see the bugs LoL I thought they were crazy!

When I had my daughter (age 25) I saw a man, lady and child all the time in my house. I also saw one of the dogs (from my night terrors) outside my bedroom door. These did spook me and I called a priest in. I was extremely tierd at the time as my baby kept me up every two hours through the night. I got my diagnoise in my thirties and all my symptoms made sense.

Guy also describes most of his HH's as painful, does anyone else here experience pain when in one of these? He said often there are dark wraith like creatures tearing at his body!

Later I'd have recurring night mares that involved being in the house or neighbourhood I lived in at the time (as a kid still) and dog attacks etc. Those too I got used to as "familiar"
Now I somtimes have dreams that I'm in the old neighbourhood or house again. I often have dreams where my teeth fall out... agian im used to it and almost aware of that i'm dreaming, like i'll think "well last time this happened it was a dream so lets hope to hell this is one too!"
sometimes i'll wake up with a pounding heart and just a flutter or no memory of the dream.
sometimes i'll have dreams that aren't quite recurring as in they aren't the same one, but the theme seems familiar and it almost feels like a continuation of another dream. i used to wonder if my life was a dream and the dream world i went to was a life, or if it was possible to have two lives, etc.
now i usually just get the bizzare dreams as i wake up if i sleep in in the am (if i don't get up by alarm). its the onl ytime i get sleep paralysis too. somtimes i'll have dreams where i know im dreaming and i scream in my head wake up!
