A 32-year-old mother from Sussex suffers from sleep paralysis, an incurable condition, that affects only 6% of the population, as indicated on an Express news report.

Her tricks have helped reduce the number of episodes she suffers, but Kirsty still claims to have an attack every few weeks, and each one is still as petrifying as the last.

“Not being able to move your body is so scary, it doesn’t matter how many episodes I suffer from, it doesn’t get any easier,” she said.
