My brother has night terrors and has had them for several years now. He has had some pretty intense incidents, some of which I remember personally.
He is currently living with my parents in the back of the house where he is all alone. Between him and my parents bedroom is my niece's bedroom, a
bathroom followed by the living room, kitchen and mud room (as my grandmother calls it) and then my parents bedroom. First I should mention that the
house is considered haunted by every member of the family, aside from my father who doesn't believe in anything paranormal (aside from the belief of
alien life, but he doesn't believe they visit out planet).
My mother has heard her name being called out from some unknown person when no one else is home. Doors open on their own and many times when I visit
my parents as I am now I hear walking up and down the hallway when no one is there. The house is old so some of the banging and knocking we all hear
may account for the house's age and it just settling, however some incidents are beyond that.
My brother has had experiences where there was a constant loud banging at his bedroom door (this took place in the previous place they lived at).
Recently he has had an incident where a picture he has hanging in his bedroom fell down at an angle knocking out the wires that were connected in his
TV. My brother is very skeptical but he does believe in ghosts and haunting's if the condition is right and yet he cannot explain how the picture
fell in that kind of angle without some help.
He recently told me of his night terrors. I asked him if he had seen the woman in black that a lot of people talk about when it comes to night terrors
and he told me no he hasn't seen her but he did tell me of something even creepier that he see's. He says that a figure wearing a black robe and
hood walks around his bedroom and then walks over to him and stares down at him for several minutes. My brother, who doesn't get scared easily says
when it happens it terrifies him to no end. It's gotten so bad that my brother can go two or three days without sleep because he's afraid of it
My brother and I have always been night owls ever since we were kids. I prefer the night to be honest with you. I also have insomnia, it's always
hard for me to sleep but I don't have night terrors like my brother. Since I have been here on my vacation, the past 10 days I have noticed my
brother staying up late trying to keep himself awake. It reminds me of the Nightmare on Elm Street movies and it also has me worried.
I've looked up night terrors on google and it brings up medical conditions, but I have a hard time believing this for some reason. When all these
people across the world are having almost the exact same condition, seeing some sort of creepy figure in their bedroom it makes me wonder. From what I
have found out this seems to happen between stage 3 or 4 of non-rapied eye movement. Perhaps it's during this time that our minds can open up to
something, a doorway perhaps that allows us to see certain things, but even then that doesn't fully explain why people are seeing the same thing
I am very heavily involved in anything paranormal, these subjects fascinate me. I have heard of these night terrors for years and I knew my brother
had them but I had no idea what it was he was actually seeing. He is convinced that it is just a disorder, but I can't help but shake the feeling
that something else is going on. Perhaps I am just overreacting and looking too much into it, I don't know.
