Sleep Paralysis is very scary. Actually, it's terrifying because you are awake the entire time but cannot move or talk so you cannot alert a nearby family member/friend to shake you, which immediately interrupts & ceases the episode. Although fully awake & aware of what's happening, audio and/or visual hallucenations can accompany the attacks, which makes them even more frightening; to the point of being afraid to go to sleep. Many report an "Evil Presence" in the room with them during the attacks or sense they are in danger. Although I know much about the disporder, I don't know any cures or preventions. Are there any treatment & prevention methods that can effectively reduce the severety or occurances of the attacks?
