Crazy. That may explain the ghost I "saw" when I was five.

If you read the medical accounts of that sort of thing, the hallucinations people describe are incredible.

Monster Talk did a great podcast with Steve Novella called "Getting into the Spirit of Things" that talked about it too.

Let me guess. You were laying on your back, staring at the ceiling, and then all of a suden a dark, distorted, or misty form apeared to hover over your bed... and you could not move or could not scream even though you wanted to so very badly?

Actually, I was on my side staring across my bedroom & I seemed to remember watching it as it appeared in the middle of my room & floated into my bathroom. Maybe I was just moving my eyes?

I was too scared to scream, don't think I even tried.

Sleeping on your stomach is rare. Most people sleep in the fetal position or on their backs. In your case it would not matter as you would still have the hallucination.

I say I'm a side sleeper, but I can sleep in just about any position. I prefer to be on my side because I tend to drool most unattractively when I'm on my stomach. Being on my back is more uncomfortable breathing-wise.

Okay, I know this will sound kind of funny, but "side sleepers" sleep directly on their left or right side, with arms fully stretched out, and legs fully straight. Fetal sleepers have their legs curled up and their back slightly arched with the stomache supporting them more than their side.

That is the difference.

I am a side sleeper. I had to teach myself to sleep with my arms folded against my chest so that my wife would have room to sleep with me. She's a stomach sleeper.
