    Reading helps me. I highly recommend The Survivalist Series, by A. American. Book one is "Coming Home". Lots of gun action in there.

    Decently active. Lift thrice a week. Walking actually sounds like a good idea. Might do that an hour before bed.

    I get sleep paralysis sometimes, horrific and freaky stuff there, takes me a good hour to go back to sleep, mainly because I’m so terrified after an episode. But that’s life I guess

    Are you otherwise in good health? Weight wise? Making sure it isn’t sleep apnea
    Is the room completely dark?
    Are you drinking liquids after 6pm?
    Are you drinking caffeine late in the afternoon ?
    Is the room as cold as you can stand it?
    Are all electronics put up in other rooms?
    Are there dogs in the bed?

    You should get checked for Apnea.
    You may actually be waking up a lot more than that without knowing it and the times when you do know you woke up happen when you stop breathing.
    I got checked for apnea and during the test they said I "woke up" something like 100-200 times during the night.

    Do you have the hallucinations to or just the paralysis?

    When I was having sleep paralysis episodes on a regular basis I finally got to the point where I would try try to go back to sleep instead of fighting the paralysis and getting myself worked up.

    To update, I've been going dry Amish an hour before bed and have been getting better results. Another thing I've found out is it may also be my thermostat. My unit and vents make a metric **** ton of noise when it fires up the heat. Which may explain the specific times I wake up.

    I have the hallucinations/ nightmares. Usually they are too vivid for my taste, so I prefer to wake myself up if I can.

    Trazadone doesn't work for me. Did you know Trazadone is an anti-depressant?
