I'm pretty much like a lot of you on here, I have a big interest in the what shall we call it? The alternative? The abnormal? I'm not sure what it is but I know that even as a child I was interested in UFO's, the paranormal etc and would often be found reading a book about mysteries of the world.
I am always thinking, wondering and questioning everything in my head which is extremely annoying, I look at other people who just accept things and wish I was like them sometimes, life is so much easier for them. I know that if I looked out the window and saw all the people running one way I would go in the opposite direction.
Anyway, I really enjoy this site, check it every day and if something has happened I come here first for up to date news.
So onto the fuzzy balls!
This is going to be really hard to explain, I am hoping there is at least one person who knows what I mean but I doubt it!!!
When I was younger and trying to go to sleep there would be in my mind these kind of fuzzy fluffy dark balls-smallish and I had a sense of calm and comfort whilst drifting off, they were just there and didn't bother me, however they would sometimes change and I knew the change was coming by the strange sounds that would gradually get louder and scarier, the balls would then get bigger and come towards me in my mind and I had to open my eyes to stop it.
My sister also had them and we shared a bedroom so I don't know-they weren't dreams though.
If anyone at all has experienced anything similar would be great to know

The answers to your fuzzy balls question shall be numerous and varied.
From pollen caught in your eyelashes to the balls being a coded message about 9-11.

Sort of. The fuzzy balls in my mind would form a larger circle in the shape of a starfish with 20 or so legs. Dark color and a sort of bubbling look. Like the kind you would get if you poured black soda in a glass and observed the black froth. It coexisted with extreme vertigo which I did not know what that was at such an early age. Eventually the occurrence was less and less although I would experience the vertigo throughout life. Usually brought on by my father giving me one of his talks that I'd get if I was "in trouble". His face was literally miles from me and right in front of me the same way the fuzzy balls were in early years.
My vertigo inducing starfish is one of my very first memories and is to the best of my memory my first nightmare. When I say one of the first memories I mean really. It is right there with getting fed a bottle of warm milk as a baby. I asked my mom when I was weaned of bottles and it was around the age of 3.
A couple of times in my adulthood I had a dream with the dark fuzzy starfish but I would recognise everything as a common feeling and pop into a lucid state and cause it to disappear.

Now about the fuzzy balls....
You know, I considered creating a thread about this once but really couldn't find the words to formulate my experience with fuzzy balls. As a child I would have the same thing. Usually there were two balls and one would grow in size as if it was coming towards me, go back to the background and the other one would come towards me... Only way to stop it was to open my eyes.
Almost like one of those sesame-street cartoons..
Weird huh?? I have no idea what it means....
Anyway, have fun here on ATS.
