When you do the Wake-Back-To-Bed technique (The one you described) You usually don't and shouldn't get sleep paralysis or any sort of Hypnogogic Imagery or any HI of that sort. So you'll be fine if you just go to sleep normally after doing the WBTB.
But sleep paralysis may or may not happen and it comes with the territory. Yea, it's scary if/when it happens but it helps you grow and when you overcome it you are a better lucid dreamer. I don't want to scare you but it CAN happen (not for everybody), but it does for some. But, whatever doesn't kill you makes you stronger so embrace it and grow if it happens at all. If you have ever had a nightmare than you know what it is like to feel fear and it is nothing more. When you get used to it, you have nothing to fear anymore.
But I must admit it can happen and ties in with lucid dreaming. I have experienced it before, but although the feelings are real and scary it is just a dream and you wake up with no ill-effect. But also, on the other hand, you may never get it at all.
I always tell myself not to mention sleep paralysis because it might turn people off.
I should only mention it and help AFTER it happens. (No need to worry about what could happen before it happens)
Don't worry about it. If it does happen then you have a place to talk about it.
Internet is a great thing eh?
I'm not going to sugar coat it, or lie, but it does tend to happen.
Having a light -hearted approach is the best thing, and it is just an illusion. Nothing to worry about.
Thing is, take it lightly. Unless you start trying some WILD techniques, at which point this whole transition into sleep can get pretty scary and weird at the same time, you haven't got anything to fear on that matter. You'll just go "oh, that's sleep paralysis. K."
tip: try rolling out of bed when you feel like you can't really move.
