When I was much younger I lived in an older house across town, I would often sit and look outside the window that was next to my front door. In broad daylight I would clearly hear three knocks on the door. Course there was no one there, or even anyone who could play a prank since I was watching the porch the whole time. Even at night I would have trouble sleeping because I felt someone was there besides my sister.
We moved into these newly built homes and for a while nothing weird had happened. Years later I again had trouble sleeping but this time I would hear creeks and loud cracks that would consistently keep me awake. As I got older I just dismissed it as the foundation and adopted this new mentality that what is real is what I can touch.
One night my sister was downstairs and I was just about the drift to sleep when I heard a loud laughter in my ear. By the way it sounded was almost evil. I ran downstairs to my sister, asked her if she had heard anything in the back yard and she looked at me confused. I know what I heard, even if it was in the backyard it had to be outside my window on the second floor. I heard it as if it was in the back of my head.
This happened when I was around 15. I'm 19 now nearly 20 and the past few days I have been woken up around 4am. A couple nights ago I was sleeping and around 4:20 I felt as if someone choked me awake. I remember just jerking around trying to pry whatever was around me. Nothing much happened after that but I couldn't sleep I just felt threatened. Even though I was tired I couldn't find the courage to sleep. So I called my boyfriend and just heard him snore away to calm me.
Last night around the same time I kept getting woken up around the same time but it was like it was in my dreams this time. Like seconds before I would wake up a woman's face would appear in my dream. But most of the time was her voice like she was getting my attention but I couldn't make out what she was saying. I could just tell the alertness in her tone when she would wake me.
This time I didn't feel threaten just annoyed she wasn't letting me sleep. Every time I would drift off she would again use my dreams to wake me.
I tried looking at some of the stories others had posted but most didn't apply to my experiences. The choking wasn't much of a sleep paralysis I'm just not sure what to do. I told what ever is in my room to please let me sleep. Most of the time I ask it to leave I just don't know what to do. I'm not sure why it's doing this now.
