I couldn't tell if this was a dream or not because I somehow had woken up in the early morning on my bed in my bedroom.
What had happened after a bad nightmare I woke up and I couldn't open my eyes properly. They were open half way but were really blurry, I tried forcing them open but they stayed the same. I then tried to move my body, but I couldn't move. It was like my whole body was paralyzed. I felt as if I were on anesthetics. I then saw a dark shadow right on the side of my bed; it looked like as if it was sitting there. Since my eyes were blurry I couldn't make out of what it was. I panicked and screamed as loud as I could, which wasn't so loud. It then disappeared and then I slowly began moving my fingers. My eyes were still pretty blurry so I forced myself to move my arm, I rubbed my eyes. They were still the same, blurry. I then looked at my watch, after 20 seconds of trying to figure out what time it was. It said it was 8:45 in the morning. I then went back to sleep and had another nightmare.
After I had woken up after four hours, I went around to ask my sisters if they had heard me scream in the morning. They said they didn't hear anything. It seemed so real but I think it was just a dream, a scary nightmare.
Is it just me being paranoid or is it actually real.
