Have I ever seen an alien. Not to my knowledge. Have I had a glowing disk hovering 100 ft above my head, yes.

I have a question for posters on here that are having the same things happen to them.How would you describe your life besides these "events"that are going on.

Well, any problems in my life stem from the physical health issues that began to intensify following my aforementioned experience(s). So it's hard to tell which came first, the chicken or the egg (so to speak lol). For example, my social anxiety didn't exist until I was sick so often that that I had to drop out of school and was fairly isolated from other people (doctors don't count) for extended periods of time. In addition, the timing was poor; this was occurring right around the age when one is supposed to be learning how to socialize and forum social connections with people in their community and in general. I never really got to do much of that since I was sick all the time until recently, so I'm pretty delayed and stunted in my social skills. It boils down to me being extremely shy, so much so that it's to my own detriment. However, while I was always somewhat shy, it didn't become true social anxiety until after I became chronically ill - which didn't happen until after my experience(s).

Apart from that, my life is fairly good. We're not very well off, but we get by and I feel like I've been quite fortunate compared to many. I can always find something to bring me joy. In fact, ironically, it is because of how stunted my social development is that I can still experience joy and wonder from simple things. For instance, rain is an almost euphoric phenomenon to me. I love to watch it, and even to reach out and touch it. It affects me the way it might affect a child seeing it for the first time. Music is the same way.

I've had one romantic relationship which was extremely fulfilling and enriching. It lasted for seven years, and we parted ways amicably. We remain close friends. I have several close friends who I share a strong bond with. They are a continual source of strength and joy in my life.

I don't have much of a social or activity oriented lifestyle, but I have aspirations to change that as my health continues to improve exponentially. That's my life in a nut shell!

I know we struggle to pay bills every month, but that is due to us paying heaps more off our mortgage than we are supposed to be. But that it to help us in our future plans. Other than that, my children are growing up in a non abusive home. They still get a smack on the bum when they deserve it though. My wife adores me, that took me a long time to work out - but we are happy now.

I don't think I have ever been truly happier in my life than I am right now. It's an almost calmness, if that makes any sense.

We listen to a lot of different music in our house, mostly my influence and my kids are starting to watch less television. I watch about 2 hours TV a week and that is usually news or current affairs.

My wife and I work for the same company, albeit at different locations and we tag team the looking after of our children. I work morning and my wife works at night - we do this so we don't pay ridiculously high child care bills.

I have turned into a green freak, trying to lower my emmisions/usage where ever I can, but from a few things like install solar hot water and buy a petrol sipping scooter, i haven't done much else.

So, apart from being an otherwise average middle class Australian bloke that works in the main industry for causing green house gasses, I find my self at a point where I am calm and think clearly and I am still waiting for something to happen and bumping into others that feel the same way.

I hope that makes sense.

It just came to me after reflecting back on that 'other' post that maybe I should state some facts about my life.

1.I played and started varsity highschool football,played middle school ball and pee wee ball.So I am not some anti social "nerd".
2.I have alot of friends(not so many now since I just moved to Illinois from Tennessee,I gota meet some up here

3.Yes I did suffer from Agorophobia(fear of socializing),I do not suffer from it nearly as much anymore after some friend broke me out of it.
4.I partied alot in Tennessee and choose not to as of yet hear,with me being in school and all.
5.I choose to come to ATS because I want to find the truth.
6.I thought I would throw in the fact that alot of my friends and people I talk to are open about these "fringe"topics,although some arnt.
7.I am not under some delusion that I or we are special,I do not want to admit it myself-I just would like to be normal and not think about these things all the time.When I tried to not really think about it it still comes up and I still dont feel normal "wasting"my time with noral social events.
8.But I also do not think that ALL these people suffer from some mass mental issue either-that is more illogical than believing in a "alien hellinic battle armada".
9.I used to smoke marijuana and do some other drugs.Yea I do take some pain pills on occassion for a football related back problem.
10.I can easily choose to not come on here anymore and go party.But thats one reason I left Tennessee,it got me in trouble and yea-I got arressted-not for anything seious,and yea I still gota go down and take care of it this summer when schools out(I have an attorney)
11.Yea I have had some mental health issues in the past infact I am crrently on a anti-deppresent.
12.I hope that this reply helps explain some more of my life,and maybe others will follow so some people dont think we are insane.Thanx

What other thread?
Oh.. that one.

I personally ignore that thread.
Maybe it's because ppl have run out of experiences and other things to tell others about.. Or maybe they don't have any time to post here anymore.
Anyway this thread was good while it lasted or will last

Not many threads last forever..

Wow look's like you got up on the wrong side of the bed this morning lol !

Cranky ?

Take care.

That's a good point, actually. I'm a very shy person by nature. It's tough for me to maintain contact with people online that I don't know well because it's difficult for me to take the initiative. Should we all u2u one another occasionally and say "how's it going?" or what? Lol.

Yea thats exactly what we all should do,Ive been talking to a couple people on this post byway of u2u's.

Yeah! We should stay in touch with each other. If something interesting happens, some new experience maybe or something, then we'll be able to share it with each other.

Cheers to the OP for posting this, you've said something that I've wanted to talk about for a long time, but felt that no one would take me seriously or truly understand. So, Cheers.

I'm 23, and like many others on this thread, I do not feel connected to anyone in my age group. I feel older and above the everyday that people my age normally do. I just can't get into drinking, partying, clubbing and the like. I also do not have the same view on relationships either. Most of my friends are getting out of college and moving on to careers and marriage or kids, and I...well its just not something I want right now.

I have always felt, different then the rest of the world for most of my life. For a long time I just felt that it was normal to feel separate, but as I got older, it started to sink in that perhaps there was something wrong with me, but I soon realized that my normal wasn't like everyone else's normal. And it was a hard fact to accept that I wouldn't fit in, no matter how I tried. Like a previous poster said, it would be easier to be ignorant about the world around us, and really take everything for face value. But I just can't do it, ignore what I see beyond the everyday.

For most of my life, I've had vivid dreams. Dreams that feel so real, when you wake up you have a hard time discerning what reality is. When I was younger, probably 7-9, I had a deathly fear of the dark. I do not remember what started it really, but my mom told me that walked in on my parents watching x-files, and if you've seen that show you know the aliens that show up on there. I don't know if that was the catalyst or it awoke something but, I had trouble sleeping after that. My dreams became more vivid. I remember hearing conversations in my room or growls, cept no one was there. I remember seeing people walk past my bed, some would look, others would ignore me. I don't "remember" being abducted, but I do remember 4 distinct times when my body would become really numb, kinda like i was in a trance, then my bed would start hovering, and do 2 complete circles with me in it, and then it would fall to the floor, and the room would go white. Then I normally remember being somewhere else. The last time it happened, i remember going to this city of water. Atlantis.

Like i said, i don't remember being abducted but, I'm afraid of aliens. Not all though, just the greys. I can't look at them without my stomach going into knots, and my hair standing up. I can't watch the end of close encounters of the third kind, but I can stand ET (unless he's screaming) or Aliens.

I also, now that I'm older to understand what was happening to me when I was younger, can see spirits/ghosts. If you believe in that sort of thing. Most of the time, they don't talk to me, but If your wondering what its like, its like seeing normal people just semi-transparent. It freaked me out for a while but I got used to it, and now its just another normal thing for me. I also can see shadow people, like I said, if you believe that sort of thing. Sometimes its a person, other times its a creature of some sort. Anyone else experience this also?

And I could talk all day about this, but I wont, since I have babbled enough already. Its just been a while since I've felt calm enough to open up about these things. I felt I was the only one, and lo and behold, others feel the same way. Oh, and I do feel like I have a higher purpose. That something is calling out to me, yet I have no clue what its saying-except for something is coming. Something big. And when it gets here-I feel a lot of things will change.

I hope this thread can stay alive, if not, feel free to message me. I'd love to hear feedback.

Okay,heres what I think:There IMO is 3 possible reasons we all feel like this.

1.We are possibly the start of the next evolution of humans.(I know how that sounds and how some may think,but try to keep an openmind)

2.We have been chosen by a benelivent group of entities for some reason and all have some large purpose to accomplish,or are being "trained"so to speak for something via astro prjection/quantum cloning.

3.We simply are normal people with a different outlok and feeling of life and reality.

***Then of course theres the ever popular-We all are just crazy and suffer from some mental dilusion and need immediate psychiatric meds.

Just my 2 and 9/10ths cents.

Those are definitely all possibilities in my opinion.

A fourth possibility that isn't particularly popular (at times even less popular than the mental disorder hypothesis, oddly enough,) is that alien abductions are a means of concealing decidedly human activities on the part of those with resources, knowledge, and technology beyond what the general populace would ever suspect anyone of possessing. There are a lot of ways that human beings could induce experiences without victims' knowledge, which, upon recall, would seem very much like alien abductions.

One example is Dimethyltryptamine ('___'). In the early 1990s there was a study done at the University of New Mexico which concluded that around 20% of people given intravenous '___' would experience vivid contact with what they saw as alien beings. Subjects reported contact with alien, insect-like entities in technological environments, which proceeded to examine or manipulate them in various ways. There are exceedingly close similarities between these experiences and the alien abduction phenomenon. '___' is a highly controlled substance, and so relatively little research into its origins and effects has been carried out. It is suspected that it plays a role in normal dreams too, because we known that low levels of '___' are produced naturally inside the brain, particularly while we're asleep. '___' is chemically similar to serotonin.

Now, this is mere speculation, and should be treated as such, however we know that various elements within certain government agencies in past decades have had an interest in the use of hallucinogens for the purposes of mind control, interrogation, and other uses. At times, tests of these substances were carried out without people's knowledge or consent. I'm not drawing any conclusions from that, but it's worth considering in my opinion. My own personal experiences and those of my mother definitely had elements of human involvement. Then again, I don't even know for sure how much of those experiences were "real," so who is to say? I'm just throwing it out there.

I definitely feel something big is coming, its a very odd feeling but its always there in the back of my mind.....i cant explain it....
the last few posts are thought provoking, there must be a reason to why we all feel like this, and is it just coincidence were all in the ufo/alien forum? and have a keen interest in this stuff?

whatever the reason, i think its a great idea to keep in touch, and share stories/ experiences......
