[quote=arlienb]what is sleep paralysis?

Sleep Paralysis
My daughter took a "night desk" job while in college and slept less and at odd times. She had the whole bag of symptoms, including hallucinations. When she quit the job and went back to a more "normal" sleeping schedule they mostly went away. Knowing what it is decreases the terror of it. DD thought her head would start spinning around next...

Five things about me. Hmmm. These are the first to come to mind and are just how they popped into my head, so not in any particular order.

1. As the saying goes, you have to kiss a lot of frogs before you find the handsome prince, my second and present husband is my prince. My first marriage was absolutely horrible, abusive, etc. I've been with Buck for 30 years now and I can't imagine being with anyone else. We have 5 children together and worked hard to create a wonderful family, which I believe we did.

2. Love, dearly, love to read. My father was an avid reader and I think demonstrated how much fun and how important reading is. Every room in our 15-room house has books in it. My cookbook collection probably exceeds 700 and I delight in pulling one off the shelf and just reading it, trying to visualize the dish/meal described.

3. My pets (cats - indoor and outdoor) are my children now that ours are all grown-up and are "big" people with families of their own. I mother them just as I mothered my human children. Currently, Ty (outside) is on the s**t list because he has been trying to beat the beejeepers out of Squeakers and Violet. He'd be in the time-out chair if I thought he'd stay there.

4. I love being alive. I've had several experiences in my life where I have nearly died and have gained an appreciation for life and, from those experiences, learned what to "sweat" or not to "sweat."

5. I like getting older. I never imagined I'd live to be the age I am - 57. As I look at that number, it even looks funny to me. I still feel as though I am a young person inside. Actually I think I embarrass my children because I don't really "act" my age. How can I? I've never been 57 before so I don't know what that's like.

There are more I'm sure, but this is today's story and I'm sticking with it.

1. I love my hubby & kids more than anythng & wouldn't take anything in the world for them.

2. I'd rather have beer than wine.

3. I love to read.

4. I'm very insecure about my looks, but I think what I have on the inside is much more important anyway.

5. I love shoes but hate wearing them.

Hmmm. Five things about me ... Let's see ...

1. I grew up in Andover, MA, but we moved to Ohio at about the time I was ready for college. I still miss New England.

2. I love living in California, the proximity to ocean and mountains, and the friendliness of the people.

3. I enjoy art and make my own greeting cards and stationery.

4. I love to cook and bake and to create my own recipes.

5. I'm happily married to a great guy. We love to travel..

1, I love my husband and kids so much from them i have learned the
true meaning of the word love.

2, I have true faith in God and the after life.

3, Cooking relaxes me or maybe it is the glass of wine I have when I cook

4, I run three miles every other day I hate doing it but love the way I feel
when I am done.

5, I am great wife and mom. I do have to tell you sometimes being a parent is so hard. I am having a very difficult time with my oldest daughter
she is beautiful, outgoing and so smart. I just want to keep her at home
with us until I don't know how old. I know I can't do that it would not
help her grow and would silence all the things she is right now which will
only blossom more. But why does everyone else have to see so much
of what we see in her. Can you tell the boys are beating down our
doors or they think so this is what they are going to find
on the other end of the door at least for two or so years. Then it will start all over again with my 2nd beauty and then my 3rd. Oh so many sleepless nights for us. And all the prayers. So I guess my 5th thing for the next
12 or so years will be I don't sleep

is your glass half full or empty? my is half full
