does anyone believe in the "hag" myth? its where you have some entity of an old woman that either wakes you up or keeps you from sleeping by sitting on your chest and there have been accounts of people that have had this happen for years and while some people argue it could be sleep paralysis some others swear its an old lady looking thing haunting and stalking people.. i find this whole thing amusing and believe its also sleep paralysis but heck who knows?? anyone here think it exist? has anyone have an experience??

In our country the Philippines, there is a similar mythical creature that does the same it's called bangungot (the closest translation to this would be nightmare) She is a fat woman that sits on your chest and surely you'll start to moan and groan while your asleep probably from the difficulty of breathing and if someone doesn't wake you up surely you will die. These things are told to us by old folk whenever we eat a heavy dinner. They always warn us not to sleep immediately after having dinner for we might have nightmares and never wake up again.
