I was still a Medicine Resident-in-training when I received a hug that I would not want to experience again.
It was a morning before a duty day. Our call time was at 7 am, but I always arrive before 6 am so that I can still sleep for an hour in our resident's quarters. I was alone at that time. I always set my alarm at 6:40 am and use the snooze button every 5 minutes so I can slowly wake myself up prior to reporting at our office downstairs. Those last 20 minutes before 7 am was a period where I consider myself still half asleep and half awake. Because I sometimes have dreams during my 1-hour sleep, I sometimes have difficulties in determining whether stuff happening around me are still part of the dream or not.
That time, I had a vivid dream of a girl hugging me. I was sure the dream was not sexual in nature, it was just a girl hugging me. I can't remember what she looked like, or what was she wearing. Then, my alarm sounded at 6:40 am. I pushed the snooze alarm for another 5 minutes, and closed my eyes for I was still drowsy. After I closed my eyes, I slowly felt something actually hugging me. I thought that this was still a continuation of the dream and I kept my eyes closed. The second alarm sounded, and I turned it off still keeping my eyes closed. I felt the hug getting stronger. Also, I felt that someone sat at the foot of my bed.
All of a sudden, I vividly heard very faint, low-pitched female moan. It sounded more like a voice of an old lady. I was so terrified. A half-unconscious state quickly shifted to a very much awake and startled state. I jumped out of my bed and quickly ran down to our office.
I am really sure that the hug and the voice were real. I told the story to my other colleagues. They said they have not experienced any similar event like this during their stay in our quarters.
