The Boston Diaries

The ongoing saga of a programmer who doesn't live in Boston, nor does he even like Boston, but yet named his weblog/journal “The Boston Diaries.”

Paralysis in the sleep

I think I finally figured out what triggers my sleep paralysis attacksnaps.

I ended up taking a nap this evening (combination of a really screwed up sleeping schedule and sleep depravation since I had to get up early today since P. is out of town), and I intended to only sleep for maybe an hour or so, but I slept longer than I expected. Durring the nap, I experienced an attack of sleep paralysis. It wasn't as bad as some of my previous attacks (now that I know what's going on, the process isn't nearly as frightening) but it still quite annoying and it seemingly takes forever to snap out of it.

But in thinking over my past attacks, they have all (to my recollection) happened when napping, or rather, napping longer than I wanted to nap.

You have my permission to link freely to any entry here. Go ahead, I won't bite. I promise.

The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or entry, if there is only one entry). The titles are the permanent links to that entry only. The format for the links are simple: Start with the base link for this site:, then add the date you are interested in, say 2000/08/01, so that would make the final URL:

You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day portion. You can even select an arbitrary portion of time.

You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that important.
