Some 'thing' is awakening me at night and scaring me. It has been going on for about two months. Not every night but just sometimes. It starts with a really loud whistle or bell that awakens me and right as I come around and start to sit up I'm forced back by a strong wind that is coming in from the hallway and then there is this thing on top of me holding me down. All I can hear is very loud screaming all around me. I don't know if the screaming is coming from the thing on top of me or if it's coming from something else. Then as fast as it came it is gone - like the attack doesn't seem to last very long at all. While it is happening I try getting up and I try to scream but I can't. Sunday night it happened two times in a row. The first time I was really trying to fight it off and I felt like the second time it came back it was to teach me a lesson about trying to fight it off like that.
Over the course of the last two years I have, on a rare occasion, awoke to a demon sort of thing in my room but it never touched me. I would just put my head under the covers and give it a few minutes and it would be gone. I don't know if this is something different or if it's just getting more aggressive.
Ever since I was a little girl I have had strange unexplainable scary things happen to me or around me but this is by far the most disturbing. Usually it's just hearing sounds or seeing shadows in the basement - stuff like that.
I don't know what to think anymore. Then again maybe I am losing my mind. Maybe it's not really happening and it's all my imagination or a dream? I seriously don't know what is going on, or what I should do.
The one thing I want to mention is that after the attack takes place I usually fall back asleep and when I awake on my own and am able to get out of bed I am not usually scared. That I don't understand. Wouldn't most people in that situation be terrified?
Any advice or input would be greatly appreciated!
