I'm Hannah Mae, and I need help.


          Hey world, do you think you could answer a few questions for me?

So, I'm 15 right now. My birthday is exactly 1 month away. For quite some time now, I've woke up out of my sleep, not able to move much, or speak. My jaw moves back and forth, I can slightly move my toes and ankles, maybe my hands. I have to pull myself out of it, by jerking my body hard. I haven't seen a doctor for this yet. I'm unsure of what is going on with myself. I was hoping that somebody could help me. 




I know this is what you

I know this is what you expect:  Talk to a doctor!
