From the angle and the brusing I would say you did this to yourself during your sleep
Not unless he's a contortionist. Check the angle. Right hand print, left side of left leg. Squeezing that hard, in tour sleep, at such a weird
angle? I can't accept that.
I actually pondered for a moment if I somehow could have, though I can't imagine how. So I held my hand to the impression, and they marks were a bit
wider, and about an inch or a bit longer than my own. I also did a test of sorts on myself (and my wife helped, a bit too readily imo...), pressing
and holding fingers in a rather tight grip. It was actually fairly uncomfortable and somewhat painful, especially after a minute or so.
Not only could we not keep a grip without our hands getting very tired, it did not even begin to leave any indention like I found that morning. The
issue: it's my calf muscle. And the indentions were in the muscle. Which perhaps is why it took three hours to return to normal.
I'm fairly critical myself of the science behind many claims on this board, and dubious of many claims. So I am the same way on myself. And I don't
believe for a moment blankets or sheets caused that sort of indention in my calf, nor myself, nor my wife (whose hands are shorter than my own).
I can't recall any dreams that night. All I know is I woke up 9 hours after I went to bed, feeling like I had gotten 2 hours of sleep, my wife and I
both slept through all 3 of my 6:30-ish alarms (they were all still one when we got up), and I had those marks.
I am quite willing to believe a medical condition caused it.. if someone can suggest something that can cause that to occur. And that because of it,
I got a miserable nights sleep. I am not going to blindly believer a sheet caused 4 long and deep indentions, and a 5th divot behind my knee.
And LadyGreenEyes, no.. I was actually interested in occult type of stuff when I was young (not practicing mind you.. just reading about it), and I
don't muck around with ouija boards or anything along those lines. My wife believes something weird sometimes goes on.. mostly because our cat once
slowly walked towards a blank wall, staring, sniffing as if something was there, with his tail bushy. I think he just smelled something or heard
something outside. : p
All I know is something caused it.. and it was not caused by my bed, nor my own hand or my wife's.
Also posting the other 4 pics I took (two with my iPad).. perhaps they give a better idea of how deep the indentions were. Pity I didn't take say.. a
rubbing. I thought about it well after the fact. Would have been interesting to see what the full shape of all were together on a sheet of paper. :
And.. that's all I got. Not sure if it helps much.. would love to know what could have caused it.
