My name is Josh, I am 20-years-old and have had multiple "ghostly encounters" since I was a child and all of them were physical.
The experience I'm going to mention happened about a year ago. I was staying at my father's house with my two brothers. My dad doesn't have a huge house, so he had the attic redone with carpet and beds. Basically turned it into a giant room. Both of my brothers had already claimed the beds so I was stuck on the floor for a night. Anyway, after staying awake for a couple hours on the computer, I finally got to sleep. I had a sleeping bag with multiple blankets on the ground for comfort, so I wasn't uncomfortable in any way. It was about 3:00 a.m when I woke up to a weird sensation on my arm. No, I did not just gradually get up, I jumped up scared out of my mind to find my arm was being lifted up, literally in the air. My hand was stuck in an awkward position and the whole arm was cold and just felt like something was wrapped around it. As I jumped up yelling out of fear to my brother, my arm was still stuck and it felt like I was being pulled. I couldn't put it down or anything.
As I started running to my brother, who was now sitting up in bed scared and confused as to why I'm yelling to him, I noticed a dark figure of a hand that was grabbing my hand as I got closer to the little lamp my brother had turned on. Its fingers were long and the fingernails had a chrome type of look to them, maybe metal. I was still in mostly darkness, but as soon as I got to my brother's bed, where the light was brighter, my arm was back in my control and the hand wasn't touching me anymore.
I have never had an experience that intense in my life, and to this day the only person who truly believes me is my brother. He had never seen me so scared in my life. The feeling I got was like nothing I have ever felt before, just complete terror. I have had a couple other experiences like that one but not as bad.
If anyone else has had something like this happen to them, please reply. Thank you.
