It all began when I was 15 years old. My step father was the preacher in the church we attended in the Tyler Texas area, therefore my family was very involved and active members.
One night, I laid down in bed, shortly after felt as though I was suffocating, there was nothing I could do to help myself until I was able to let out a scream. My parents rushed into my room and I remember seeing my step father in the doorway and my mother holding me. I was terrified; to the point I had to be given a sleeping pill to go back to sleep. I couldn't fathom what had made me feel this way. That night my step father told me that I had a pillow over my face when they had entered the room; this however was not the truth.
The next day after school, he sat me down and told me that he apologized but the truth of the matter was when they entered my room, there was a dark shadow hovering over my body that flew out my window when he stepped in. Since that day, I have experienced paralyzing fear when coming to my home, to the point I would not enter, seen dark figures over my shoulder, found unexplainable bruises in different areas of my body, watched shadows float down my hallway and fixate at the foot of my bed while I lay there scared. I have moved several different places since the first incident, and have seen this "shadow" at my job, while there alone. I am now 27, to be 28 in May.
Last night I was lying in bed and felt footsteps at the foot of my bed, passed over my partner and stop over me. I knew the feeling as soon as it stopped. Having my religious back ground I tried praying, but wasn't able to open my mouth to speak any words, nor was I able to see the name of Jesus in my mind. When I was finally able to speak, the only word I was able to get out was "hey". I could still feel the presence in my room as if it were watching my every move. Evan, my partner just held me as I lay there trembling in fear.
Any suggestions? Ideas? Its going on 13 years since this all began and I'm lost as to what I need to do.
