My next story happened to my mom, brother and myself. I know of sleep paralysis and one might think that what I experienced was that. The only difference is could three people suffer the same thing within the course of a day? The decision is yours...
It was a good day nothing out of the ordinary. I woke, got dressed, and went to school. The day was pretty normal until I went to bed. I always awoke at about 3am every day. I guess it was my internal clock telling me to wake up. This time was a little different; I awoke to a pressure on my chest. I opened my eyes and went to get up but I couldn't move. I tried to use my arms but found I couldn't. The only things I could move were my legs. I started kicking and lifting myself up with my legs, but the top half of me wouldn't budge. After what seemed like hours, was only a minute or so, I was able to move. I sat up in bed and looked around the darkness. There was nothing there that I could see.
This alone could have been sleep paralysis but the next day when I told my mother she looked at me a bit weird. Then she told me what she went through earlier that day while we were at school.
My mom said she awoke to a pressure on her chest; she went through basically the same sensations I went through. Only she said she could see herself sitting at the bottom of the bed. She said she closed her eyes and put her hands together and started praying. When the "experience" finally passed she looked at her hands and found them to be bleeding. She had pretty long nails so when she had clasped her hands they were so tight that she had made herself bleed.
Years later my brother told us of his experience. He wasn't nearly as frightened as my mother and I were.
It was early in the morning before we were to wake up for school. My brother said he felt really uncomfortable and he woke up. When he opened his eyes he saw a dark shadow above him just hovering. He looked for a bit then closed his eyes and went back to sleep. I don't know how he did that but he was always saying that it was his friend.
So there is my latest story, hope you all enjoyed it.
