It's been a really long time since I posted but last night I had something happen that I can't explain. I have been shooken up all day about it.
Last night I went to bed about 9:30. A few hours later I awoke to a man standing near my bed. I couldn't believe what I was seeing. He had long brown matted hair and a beard. He was dressed in a shabby coat and I would have to guess that he stood about 5'8" or so. He looked like a homeless person. I blinked a few times and then the reality that there was someone there hit me like a ton of bricks. At first I thought someone had broken in and was there to harm me.
I started screaming. I don't recall ever being so scared in my entire life. My heart was beating so fast that I thought I would have a heart attack. My dog was asleep at the end of the bed. Once I started screaming she woke up and moved closer to me. She seem completely unaware of the presence. The man just stood and stared expressionless. As I screamed and my eyes became more focused on him, he started to disappear. Then all of the sudden it was like he was sucked backwards out of the room, as if in a flash.
I tried to convince myself that this was a dream, that he wasn't really there. But if I was asleep, how was I able to scream? He appeared as real and solid as any live person. I laid in bed listening and waiting for my heart to slow to a normal rate. Nothing else happened and I was able to fall back to sleep eventually. This morning I checked the alarm to make sure I had turned it on before going to bed. I had. Nothing else in the house was disturbed to suggest an intruder.
At work this morning I relayed what happened to a trusted friend. She said she didn't think whatever was there was out to harm me and that maybe it was a soul looking for help. I honestly don't know but if anyone has any input to this, I would greatly appreciate it.
