About two years ago I moved from Michigan to Tennessee. After being here for about three days I started having what I thought was bad dreams. I would be sleeping and wake up to a man standing next to my bed. I would scream and my boyfriend would wake up and it would be gone. Like I said at first I thought it was just a bad dream but it started happening more and more. It is happening about three times a week now and it is terrifying me. I just wake up out of a dead sleep and don't know what wakes me up. When I look over there is a man there. It's always the same man but not always in the same area.
The first couple times it happened I thought it was a dream or just shadows so I would sit up in bed and watch it and it moves then disappears. I still don't know if I'm seeing things or if I'm paranoid but it's terrifying me.
Last night was the worst so far. I woke up feeling like something was pulling on me and I was kneeling on the floor next to the bed and the man was standing over me I screamed so loud it woke up everyone in the house. I don't know what to do anymore. Could anyone explain this? It has never happened to me before until I moved into this house. Is this a ghost, Can it hurt me? It hasn't happened to anyone else in the house.
