I just woke up from sleep paralysis. Once my brain woke up fully and I realized what was going on, I stopped panicking so much and freeing my body wasn't so hard. When I made my final effort and sat up bolt upright it felt so good. I have no idea how long I struggled. Of course, to me it felt like forever. Could have been 10-15 minutes.

The last time I had sleep paralysis it was more than a decade ago. Back then it was a lot more intense (and I was a lot more scared) and thought it was some kind of religious experience :)

Man, so that's what it is! I had one of those experiences two years ago - but I thought it was a particularly horrible lucid dream.
