You probably have astigmatism. This is a physiological curve in your eye which causes you to either see things better at a distance or up cloae- but not both (unless you stretch your eyes).. Go get your eyes checked! Vision is so precious. Take care of it.

Don't. THOSE are annoying. Same thing with the trying to read a book dreams where the whole dream is you trying to read and re-read the same few lines of a book but your dream cannot remember the sequence of words so it's always different but you never complete it.
Sleep paralysis (called "Old Hags" here if you really want to throw your doctor for a loop an start calling them that) is a very scary thing. I think it happens when your conscious mind begins to come out of the REM stage of sleep and you get stuck in a sort of scary dream while you feel totally conscious. Have you read any psychology articles on SP, Sakura? There are many causes and I think you mentioned a few before.
