This is my first story so please if I muck up take it easy on me, I've never been afraid of the dark. I've always loved it, but after last night I can't stand to be in a dark room. So for the past couple of months I've been waking up, but feeling like I'm being pinned down by someone. I can't move at all or open my eyes or make a sound.
Last night (26 of November) was the scariest so far as I found it hard to breathe, like someone was pressing down on my throat. I know I was awake because I could hear the traffic going past my house. As I was trying to move by closing my eyes tighter and then trying to open them and trying to make my head move sideways, as I've found sometimes this allows my eyes to open and me move. In my head I could hear myself screaming but there was no audible sound.
After what felt like 20 minutes, my eyes snapped open and I could move. My throat also hurt like I had been like someone was pressing down on it and I had been screaming.
I jumped out of bed turning on my light. The switch is within leaning distance from the bed. I scanned my room but found nothing. So I walked to my back door, which is down the stairs and a short hallway from my room turning on lights as I went so it wouldn't be dark. I quickly brought my two large dogs inside and took them to my room. After that I slept soundly but I'm to afraid to go back to sleep whilst it's night.
Today I tried explaining it to my sister but she pretty much told me to bugger off and stop making up lies. I have had other experiences but I'll write them in another story.
I could really use someone who's been through this to talk to.
