Few spirits are capable of influencing physical objects with sufficient force to cause actual harm to a human, so it sounds to me as though the 'boy' has an extraordinary amount of power...

The first thing that I noticed here is that this woman gets only 3 hours of sleep a night. This is not normal under any circumstances. A person that is deprived of too much REM sleep or has narcolepsy can have hypnagogic hallucinations. Also being strangled by someone that is standing over you while you sleep is a sign of possible Sleep Paralysis. I would suggest that this person see a doctor that specializes in sleep medicine.
Here is a good link:
Note this quote from the page:
“Yoss and Daly (1962) included these hallucinations in the “narcolepsy tetrad” on which they based the clinical diagnostic criteria of narcolepsy.
These hallucinations have more recently been reported in disorders of excessive daytime sleepiness, and are often reported by subjects with sleep paralysis at sleep onset (Goode, 1962; Hishikawa, 1976). “
Link from same site on sleep paralysis:
Also good point from this page:
“In addition, it has been found that factors such as stress, fatigue, an irregular life pattern and sleep deprivation may predispose individuals to Sleep Paralysis (Takeuchi et al., 1992).”
You may also note the figure that is sitting on the person’s chest on this page; this is a depiction of what is know as the gray ghost. Often when a person has an attack of this kind they feel that there is an entity in the room that is choking them, and they are unable to stop it from occurring.
