I'm terrified to go to sleep...

I went anon because I don't want bashing in my inbox.

I am non medicated bipolar and ADHD, bear with me this is relevant. I also think I have a sleep disorder stemming from the fact I am a strong empath with precog though I'm not a perfect precog.

When I lay down to sleep I know it will be a bad night because my legs begin to tingle, then arms, finally my ears ring and if I open my eyes I get attacked and usually have physical wounds the next morning even if I sleep alone. I do not fall asleep during these episodes, but afterwords. I am very much awake as my husband has come in before and I can tell him the time as I read before sleep.

It's getting worse. Today I was trapt in the between for 13 hours. I slept but woke to them in bed with me playing. I couldn't speak but the creature wasn't here. I could move. Hubs said I moved even.

This has affected me as I refuse to sleep which makes me tired which affects my bipolar and ADHD. Now I'm in bed terrified to sleep because I'm afraid of being trapt between awake and asleep again...

Please tell me I'm not crazy and others go through this too. I'm breaking down and having a sleep study done to find out what's going on, but I feel crazy. I've had bad dreams before, but today took the cake.

Never dealt with something like that before. I hope that sleep study helps you.

No, anything I've tried for my bipolar puts me to sleep for days almost. ADHD doesn't need medication anymore as we figured out a focus.

I've had the same problem minus the physical wounds, it's called sleep paralysis.
