So I am writing down my story to get some feedback and possibly advice if you can about this encounter with a dark ghost.
A week ago, I was sleeping in my bed, and all of a sudden, I woke up. When turning myself back to the wall, there was a very very dark shadow, darker than the obscurity itself, that was standing at my bed. There was absolutely no light in the room, curtains were very closed, and still I was seeing this thing. It was very very close. The thing just kept staring at me. I was absolutely freaked out and very soon realized I couldn't move my body, nor scream. I could only blink very difficultly and this thing kept staring at me. This aproximately lasted for a minute or so. I was very awake (after researching intinsively the web, I come across sleep paralysis phenomena. Problem: I was very awake, I can recall every second of this). So, back to the story.
The dark shadow appeared more opaque, thicker and I could now see that it was gazing at my eyes and I felt fear and evil. I could only blink and felt very weak. Then, and this did happen too, (meaning I was not dreaming), I felt as if I was choking. It still stared at me while I was feeling that someone, something was actually trying to strangle me. This lasted for merely a minute or so. Then, I managed somehow to close my eyes and opened them wide, still in total shock and disbelief, and it had gone. As it literally gazed into my eyes and and was standing by my side, I got a very close look at its appearence. Malish, infinite darkness, eyes included with yellow bright contours, young, I would say in its 30-40 and all darker than obscurity besides its eyes contours. I don't recall more of its head and torso (remember it was standing next to me in my bed). It felt very agressive, and inspired intensive fear and hate.
I then switched up the light, shaking and barely slept (with lights on). It happened a week ago. For four days, I slept with the light on, and still with the being of feeling watched. This is something I can still not forget.
Yesterday, a friend was staying at my place and snapped a picture of himself in the same room before taking a nap. I had gone to the grocery store so I was not myself present when he did take the picture. I had told him the story. There is a black shadow standing behind the table. I can post it here if there is an option? Or in the forum? Besides the original picture I have, I looked with different filters with my iphone to see if this was the flash or something. With every filter, it is standing.
About my background, I myself had one lucid dream encounter with a deceased one, but never ever seen a ghost. English too is not my main labguage so I am sorry for the mistakes, if any.
I might add that I also moved into the apartment a month ago, and nothing happened previously. This is also a place where despite the heating, I get sick (cough etc.) very easily since arriving. I don't know if this is related, but as we are talking energies, why not. Let me know what you think. Thank you.
