If I am posting this in the wrong place I am sorry, but I need direction on where to find help with this.
About 10 years ago when I was around 42, my husband and I divorced and I was living in an apartment alone. It was my day off and that afternoon I decided to stretch out on the couch and relax for a bit. I turned my TV on and got comfortable. I looked at the end of the couch, at my feet, and there stood a small man. Well, I'm thinking it was not a man. He was very short, wore no clothes and had no hair. His left hand rested on the end of the couch and his right hand was near his face, with a finger on his cheek like he was studying me. But his skin! The only way I can describe it was like old parchment paper - wrinkled maybe and old looking. Not sure really how to give a description. I can remember no details about his face, it seemed like eyes were the only thing I was aware of.
I said in a low, quiet voice, "What do you want?" and he said nothing. Then I hissed very loudly like a cat - I have no reason why I had that reaction! Then I said, "Go away!" and he was gone. I was afraid to move and just felt cold and numb all over, my adrenaline was pumping like crazy.
For over a week I could not sleep in my own bedroom - it was at the very back of the apartment and I felt afraid to sleep there. I slept on the couch so I would be near a door. I was confused and terrified I might see him again.
It is 10 years or more later and I still feel terror and total fear thinking about it. It had a huge effect on me. I thought maybe I had fallen asleep and dreamed it, but I do not believe that happened. It is as real today as it was then.
I would like to know if anyone has had a similar experience. If I need to be directed to another site please do so. I just want to know I'm not crazy!
