Are there people who have never woken up from sleep paralysis?

I just had one and it was scary. I couldn't move for a minute.

No, it's completely harmless. When it happens just try to stay calm and focus on waking up.

Thanks. It was really scary. I had to move my lower bottom first and somehow managed with the top as well.

It is scary. I used to get it all of the time :/ try to sleep on your side and you won't get it as often.

Yes. It's called a coma

Glad you're alive. I heard some people sleep and just never wake up. They kinda just die? Sorry if I ever scare you but it's true; some people just die in their sleep. No matter what age.

Sleep paralysis is harmless. Don't freak them out and make them worry. People who die in their sleep had something wrong with them medically. Most people who die in their sleep do so at a ripe old age. It's not common with young people.

I don't think so. But there are people who get stuck in sleep paralysis for HOURS at a time. Luckily I'm not one of those people, but I hear it really sucks.

Well not too long ago I had that same moment where I was awake but couldn't move. I never thought about it that way, though. I hope that's not possible

I don't believe that you can die from the sleep paralysis your referring to. I have had the same thing several times and am fine

I've had it before, I've also had the inception kind of dream where I woke up within a dream a couple times.

Sleep paralysis is natural part of sleeping for everyone, every night. You just wake up sometimes before it is over, usually after a bad dream.
