I woke up just like I normally do... Turning over and going back to sleep. This time I was lying on my back looking at the ceiling when all of the sudden... I couldn't breathe. I saw something hovering above me. It was as if I was wearing a pair of glasses that had a smudge on them. That's the best way to describe it.
My wife was sleeping within touching distance and I have two dogs (both of which, were also on the bed) neither were awake. I tried to talk but couldn't speak. I attempted to wake my wife using my right hand but couldn't move it. I am a fairly strong person but still I could not move my hand even few inches.
I focused back on the "smudge" and continued my struggle. It then seemed as if my eyes were shutting on their own. I felt like it was a battle I was losing... I felt like I was dying. Before my eyes
Completely closed I screamed,"F*** You! (in my head). I fought to move extremely hard to move and finally I touched my wife's shoulder. Then, all of the sudden, everything was ok (12:30am).
I told her to turn on the light (which took her forever) and then I explained what I thought just happened. She didn't believe me, thought I was dreaming. So I got out of bed and started writing this-not sleepy.
