I used to LD frequently as a child and it was almost always a negative experience. As far as I recall I would tend to become aware during a period of sleep paralysis, which I found terrifying, and having started off on such a footing the subsequent episode of LD was equally frightening. This continued erratically a few times a month from the age of maybe 8 or 9 until I read something or other in a book at perhaps 14 which explained it, and after that it lost its terror and became a curiosity to explore. By then it started to occur far less frequently and eventually faded completely. In hindsight I think I can relate episodes of SP and LD to migraines in the preceding day or two, and these also faded in my teens.
Anyway, a few days ago, probably not far off 25 years after my last LD, I became aware of sleep paralysis as I dozed one rare quiet Saturday morning and I excitedly latched onto the opportunity to enter LD, which I did only briefly until rudely shattered by real life wife/child/cat requiring some kind of interaction.
One memory this brought flooding back to me is the sensation of buzzing. As I lay there in SP there was a strong sensation of auditory and physical buzzing, and I immediately recalled experiencing this sensation as a child as the precursor to SP. Now with the benefit of spending mere seconds on google I know this is a common part of hypnagogia. I would have loved to have this facility when I was younger, have the fear removed and have been able to explore the weirdness rather than fearing it!
Actually, it just occurred to me as I finished typing the above that my parents split up starting when I was 8, and both settled with new partners when I was about 14.
