Weird things have been happening while I sleep.
Ever since I was young I’ve been having small encounters with the paranormal, I have a massive love for all things horrifying and creepy so you’d think I’d enjoy something like this, but I’m really not.
The first time I noticed something happening was when I was about 13-14, I fell asleep one night like all the nights before, but when I woke up I had a pair of my boots on my bed facing the wall with my arm wrapped around them, the week after that I had a string of nightmares that lasted three nights, it got to the point where I didn’t want to sleep anymore (I saw a childhood friend die in a fire who would want to sleep after that?)
But I slept and they stopped for a while, I’ve had occasional bad dreams that wouldn’t qualify as nightmares, just things that left me shook for a bit.
Things died down until a few months ago when I heard a clicking noise moving from corner to corner of my room right beside my gaming setup, it was in threes and it lasted for a few days. Whenever I went to bed and tried to sleep it would just go ‘taptaptap’ wait a few seconds to a minute ‘taptaptap’ I ignored it.
Whenever I’m in the kitchen with my earbuds in I can feel someone run at me, like I can feel the ground shaking as if someone’s running towards me at full force, but like always nothing’s there.
I’ve also had feelings of someone’s presence, I’ve felt it on my back one night while on the phone with a friend of mine, I see small dark figures out of the corner of my eye at random times of the day, I’ve been hearing weird noises while I’m playing apex. It’s not voices or anyone saying my name, it’s just weird incoherent things that I hear once and they go away.
But things have escalated lately, I recently got my nose pierced for my birthday, just a simple nostril piercing, about two weeks ago I felt someone pulling it out. No, it wasn’t me, there was a hand on my face and someone was pulling out my stud. Few days after that I fell asleep while otp with a friend of mine and they heard me talking and laughing to someone while asleep. Sometime after that I woke up one morning on top of the blankets I fell asleep under facing the ceiling with my arms and legs straight, like when you go to the dentist and you lay on the table.
And now the weirdest and most frequent thing that’s happened: I live with my grandparents, my grandmother has these nights where she can’t sleep because she hurts, like physically. One night at around 4 am she got up and came downstairs to the kitchen, she thought she heard me in my room making noise…but it wasn’t me, I fell asleep around 12-1230 that night. The night after that I woke myself up because I was literally digging my fingernail into my cheek, it was bleeding when I woke up.
I have no idea what’s going on when I sleep, things have been acting up and I don’t know what it is.
I’ll update if anything else happens.
