Ohio State Running Back TreVeyon Henderson Finds Rest From Sleep Paralysis, Mental Health Struggles in Faith

Sleep can be a waking nightmare for TreVeyon Henderson.

There’s nothing figurative about that statement. On a given night or while waking up on a given morning, the Ohio State running back known for flying down a football field faster than a flaming phoenix could be locked in place stiffer than a board, unable to move while fully conscious and suspended between a state of being asleep and awake, seeing visions.

Henderson has been long afflicted with sleep paralysis, a condition that, without warning, leaves those afflicted unable to move while they are either falling asleep or waking up.
