    I am a 54 year-old woman. I have suffered from sleep paralysis with horrific demonic visions since the age of 12. It’s not just a nightmare because I’m awake and and aware but can’t move. It feels like I’m tapped in another realm and I’m being tortured and sucked through a dark hole to a dark world and never coming back. I’ve learned to live with it but it’s been a huge problem and obstacle in my life. I also suffer from regular, terrifying, gorey nightmares. I’ve always thought that doctors and scientist could gain some insight and knowledge from my experience and my life-long, battled with my nightmares and sleep paralysis.

  5. Monica Vaughn

    32 years old female with extreme chronic insomnia. In order for me to even begin having any kind of feeling, slight or severe, I have to take at the absolute very least: 12 of the 50mg OTC diphenhydramine sleep, at least one but no more than 2 800mg Gabapentin, 2-3 50mg Primidone {for my Essential Tremors}, 2-3 1mg Alprazolam, and at least 1 10mg Zolpidem Tartrate…… and even then after all of those, it takes hours for my body process it and/or allow it to work. I’ve had insomnia for an extremely long time, but I began to notice a difference in severity around 2003-04. I’m healthy as a horse except for my tremors & insomnia, but the anxiety I cause myself over worrying about it is getting worse as I get older. I can stay up for days and still feel perfectly fine, but I do miss that nice, warm, falling feeling of drifting off to sleep on my own. I haven’t exaggerated one iota, and would love to be a participant of an insomniacal study so that I may begin to pick away at the answer of why I’m not able to fall asleep naturally, or even at all.

  6. William E.Ritger

    I am 82 years old, from the day I was born I have had a sleep problem My mother told me from the day I was born I would be feed in the evening and would sleep thru the night, never waking until the next morning. While in the navy, when we were at sea, getting off work at noon on Saturday would go to bed and sleep till the next morning, getting up for brunch, back to bed, get up in the evening and watch a movie and then back to bed till Monday at 6am.when working after the navy in a lab for printing machines when working on something where I would be under the machine I would fall asleep. Over the years I have had three sleep studies, I use a cpac along with 9 hours sleep. 2 modafinil 200mg eat breakfast I am still tired and can go back to bed. Their is a lot more I could say but running out of space to enter that information.

  7. Wendy Moore

    I am 52 female, I am a lot like William. I sleep all the time. My mother had to wake me to feed me and bathe me and other than that I slept. I don’t hear alarms. I have a friend that wakes me every morning or I wouldn’t have my job. I sleep so hard that I hear nothing I don’t wake up. Someone could rob everything around me and I would not wake up. I have had sleep studies done I take everything off and they have to come in all night, I don’t remember.. I can sleep anytime. I have a cpap but I rip it off , I snore terrible. I’m single so no one is there to have me put my mask back on. If I can sleep and don’t have to wake up I require 12-14 hours, I am tired of sleeping my life away!! Please help,,
