I've always had trouble sleeping. Ever since I was around 4 or 5, I've had sleep paralysis (apparently it runs in my family), but of course I've also heard of it being a form of astral projection. When I read more up on it, I've been more calm about being paralyzed in my sleep; I've let it take over me without being afraid. I use to feel like I couldn't breathe before, but now, it's weird to say, but I see brighter colors in my head when I'm paralyzed, almost like I kept seeing fireworks (I don't know if this happens to anyone else). Well, that part's not the issue anymore. The last time I was paralyzed was months ago. I use to sleep walk and talk and have insomnia, which by the way I have right now, I have a Stats class at noon. It's 7 AM right now and I still haven't gone to sleep, but did take a nap for an hour at around 8 at night. Sorry for so much information, all of that isn't the problem I'm having now. The one I'm asking about is what I've noticed lately and even my boyfriend notices this when we sleep together. Almost every single night right before I go to sleep, I end up waking myself up by twitching. You know how when you're about to sleep and you only dream for 1 minute, and that 1 minute dream involves you falling down a hole or tripping over a rock, so you wake yourself back up? I know everyone has that, but I don't even dream anymore for me to wake myself back up. The last time it happened to me was when I was taking a nap earlier. I was laying on my boyfriend and all of a sudden, I just twitched myself back awake without even dreaming about falling or tripping over something. It keeps happening to where my boyfriend keeps asking what's wrong. I don't think it's a problem where I have to go to the doctor or anything. But, I've been meditating a lot more for the past couple of months and noticed that the problem started and progressed at around that time. Has this happen to anyone else so frequently like this or am I just being paranoid?
Trouble sleeping lately.
