Hello all, I'm new here. I came upon ATS by Googling for an explanation for an incident that happened to me. Here is what happened just as I
Last night I fell asleep in my bed watching TV around midnight, this is not unusual for me. I woke up at around 4:30 AM because I had to go to the
bathroom. I went, then returned to my bed and shut off the TV and stereo. Almost immediately after I went back to bed I felt this great pressure
overcome my entire body. I was laying on my right side and this enormous pressure come upon me from the direction I was facing. In other words, it
started on my fingertips and my knees, and soon raced over my whole body. To convey this feeling, it felt like being "pig piled" on, where lots of
people lay on you and all the air is forced out of your body. This was like a pig pile that covered every inch of my skin. I remember gasping for
breath and could not intake any air because the pressure on my face was too great. I couldn't move my lips or my eyelids. My body was completely
paralyzed, but my mind was not. I was aware of this pressure, but could not physically resist.
I was in some state of consciousness because my first thought was "somebody" was laying on me as some kind of joke. I used what seemed like
all my strength to move just my fingers and I felt as if I was able to grip something. This shocked me because what I was actually "gripping" felt
to be somebody else’s fingers or hand. My hands were not together, and I was not gripping my own hands, I know this because I felt this pressure on
the tops and bottoms of both hands.
I am unaware of exactly how long this pressure lasted, but it seemed like a minute or two. This pressure was enough to keep me awake, or what seemed
to be awake. I'm not aware of exactly what happened to me last night. I read posts where people seemed to fall, slip, or were hit, and immediately
would wake up. I have experienced these all before and woke up just as everybody else. I have not read of incidents where somebody was paralyzed by
any "pressure" such as I experienced.
I would like people's opinions of this if possible, be it scientific or paranormal. I'm open to any suggestions or criticism.
