Hey, sorry for the late reply, i havent been on ATS as much recently.
In all honesty i dont think i could give you an accurate answer, but i'd estimate around the age of 8-9 i started to think about it as being
Yeah, its the only experience i've had, but the memory is firmly implanted in my memory for the last 14 odd years and has never left, the idea still
frightens me to this day and im now a grown man, i cant go to sleep when its dark outside so i end up staying up until the early hours and it starts
to become light, unless someone is sleeping in the same room as me.
It makes sense to me now, i've just realised, i've developed an association (Yes i study Psychology) with light being safe and the dark just being a
constant reminder to what happened.
When my "experience" occured, it ended when i ran towards them and turned on the light, which i physically did and was found by my brother on the
floor under the light switch, so i have this thought that they wont come when there is light, its really screwed with my body clock!
I'm still scared of them to this day as a grown man, but yet im so interested in them, i just wish i could have answers.
It really isnt nice having this play on your mind for over a decade man.
Thanks for your reply
I'd love to hear from more of you, and more about your experience.
It really freaked me out to only just learn a few weeks back when i spoke about this to my mum ( I hate speaking about this because it isnt exactly an
everyday subject to the general population) and she said i kept telling them "they are coming for me" for months after.
Its just so confusing because to me its so different to the "usual" experiences, no ufo, no bright lights, no sound, and no little grey dudes, but
this was not a dream, and that is one thing i know.
