Evidence suggests that people who report childhood abuse are more likely to suffer from sleep paralysis—when you mentally awaken from sleep before your body is able to move.
Sleep paralysis can include tactile and visual hallucinations, often of threatening intruders in the bedroom.
It’s possible to interpret these hallucinations as bits of old unclear memories.
People who suffer from sleep paralysis are also more likely to have emotional issues, including depression. Mc Nally, a professor of psychology at Harvard who has extensively studied adults who report childhood sexual abuse, reports another possibility: Some children do not understand that anything notable is happening at the time but when they recall the event later and see it through adult eyes suffer “intense distress,” he writes.
