Before I even try to explain what happened to me last night, know that I am by no means making this up or trying to get some "cyber attention" of
any kind. I am by nature a very sceptical person, coupled with the horrible human condition to constantly be deceptive my scepticism can sometimes get
the better of me. Again please note this occurrence I am about to attempt to explain is the very first time I have experienced something of this
frighting calibre and I am solely sharing this here on ATS because of the diversity of mentalities that dwell within this IP. Your input, opinions,
and interpretations will be dearly appreciated.
After arriving home from a friends farewell to the USA (I am from South Africa) I engaged in my usual routine of midnight snacking and watching some
comical programmes that one can only view at that time of night. I started getting tiered so I went to bed, please not I did have a couple of beers
but nowhere near to the complete debilitation of any my motor functions.
I fell asleep in no time and all was dandy. I have no idea how long I was fast asleep but when I awoke (still being dark), and this is were things
get really strange. I felt a solid and firm pressure on my chest, like someone quite strong was holding me down. I could see no physical figure over
me even with the bit of ambient light cascading through my window from the street lights. The worst thing was as I felt this pressure on my chest, I
also struggled to breath normally, not full on asphyxiation but more like the shortness of breath when one exercises. I started to panic as I
struggled to sit upright so I started yelling "hey, hey! what the f@%k".
My old man opened the door to my room and flicked the light on and as he did that I was able to sit upright but I felt weak and confused. As he asked
me what all the fuss was about I suddenly felt extremely nauseous and literally pushed him to the side to get to toilet and vomit. I mumbled my
predicament to him in my crappy state and he ruled it off as a nightmare. Not in the mood to argue I just nodded my head and climbed back into my bed
to only feel that I was sopping wet, the kind of sweating you would experience from intense exercising. Needles to say I couldn't fall asleep again
as this incident was just looping in my head over and over.
The only logical explanation that came to mind was sleep paralysis, but it still does no justification to the fact that I was wide awake when I felt
that pressure on my chest and fully capable of clear speech. I am not a firm believer in poltergeists or demons for that matter so I am still
flabbergasted about this whole ordeal.
ANYBODY OUT THERE WITH ANY KNOWLEDGE ON THIS TYPE OF PHENOMENON OR SIMILAR EXPERIENCES, I WILL REALLY APPRECIATE SOME PIECE OF MIND.
