Update: New development,
Thank you to all of your who have encouraged me to continue posting on this thread with updates. I had another night terror this morning and wanted
to share the back story with you.
First off, I was contacted a while back by a poster who wanted more info on the night terrors that I have experienced in the early morning hours. I
has been around 6 months since the last one and this morning I had a major one.
The following sketch is what I sent to him with the story below...
I was sleeping alone when I realized that I was in my room and awake. I noticed that I couldn't move my limbs and got that little panicky feeling
that I am sure that some of you are aware of. I started to look around the room, not with my head, I couldn't move that but somehow I was lifting my
head and still had the ability to see the room from my perspective. The window reflects the door to the bathroom and that creature was slowly walking
into the room. his tentacled head waved like snakes but seemed weird since there was no room for a skull. Just the serpent like limbs twisting above
it. As the panic set in I attempted to look at the bathroom door. Nothing in the door.
When I looked back the reflection to the outside the creature was now fully stepping through the doorway. I looked back at the door again and did the
only thing that I could. Mentally screamed at it to leave this house now. Almost immediately it vanished and I came to full control of my body.
When I realized my limbs were mobile I had no panic, no shortness of breath. I realized it was over and laid my head back down.
I didn't give it much thought after that and didn't mention it to the kids since I didn't want to freak them out when they come over. The friendly
request that I got from the other poster to sketch what I had seen prompted me to make the sketch above.
Now, this morning around the same time I had another episode. I had trouble sleeping last night, in fact for the last few days due to major upsets in
my life. I have had a recent break-up with a long term relationship. I am prepping the home that I live in to be sold and will be out on the
streets. I have no job prospects and things are looking grim. Recently I started to really get down but I know that path so I contacted an old
friend and spent the day with him. Somehow being out of the house got me way up. I came to realize like so many here have posted that I need to stay
positive with an "unknown" in my presence, among many other reasons of life. And yesterday I was pretty good.
This morning I had the exact experience with my paralysis and 5 feet to the right of my bed behind the open door to the living room I saw something
poke its head out. I know that it was a little to tight for a man to stand behind so I had that feeling of reaching out for a weapon that stays by my
bed. I couldn't move then the real panic set in. When I turned to fully look at what was there it stuck out a hand.
At that point I began to panic-breath and yell inside of my mind that "you are not welcome, LEAVE NOW!" As soon as that was spoken it vanished and
my breath and limbs returned to normal.
I know that a lot of you out there will have some great advice...please keep the back of the class-clown comments to a minimum. Just similar stories
or advice please. Try and think of the way that I control my threads like how the mods have recently cracked down on the UFO topic threads. You can
be skeptical, just don't be counter productive to the conversation. Thank you.
And take care everyone
