This incident happened in 1979.
I lived alone in a flat and my boyfriend had just left. It was about midnight. It was a bitterly cold night and I climbed into bed. There was a light
chord above my bed, which I pulled to turn off the light, then snuggled down, laying on my right side, to sleep.
The moment I closed my eyes, I felt the bottom of my bed sink, as though someone had sat on it.
My eyes popped open with the greatest feeling of dread I have ever felt. My mind was in turmoil. I thought someone had sneaked into the flat and once
my boyfriend had left 'he' was going to attack, rape or even murder me. I tried to speak but only a choked gurgle came from my lips. All the while I
could feel 'his' weight forcing the bed down.
My only way out of the flat was to try and dash past him, run down the stairs and out onto the street. I knew that would have been futile and realised
that I would have to confront him and try talking my way out. Then it occured to me that, because of the flat's lay-out, no-one could possibly have
entered. I then believed what I was experiencing was paranormal.
I had no choice but to face him. I sprang up, turning to face him and pulled the light chord. There was no-one there. I was badly effected by this
for some time and had to stay at my parents for a week.
I definitely was not asleep.
I should say that I have had a number of paranormal experiences, though that was the only unpleasant one, and reflecting, I have to admit that while I
was terrified, I was not harmed in any way.
I wonder how many people have had an experience like this and come out unscathed. Maybe my fear caused me to miss an opportunity of actual
Any way, since then, many things have happened and I can honestly say I don't get frightened. Who knows, maybe one day I will be trusted enough not
to freak out for a visitor to stay and have a chat.
So please, if you have any similar experiences, I'd love to hear.
