A bit late in the year for scary stuff, but oh well!
So, this is a thing that happens with me sometimes and I wondered if anyone had that as well.
Basically, it's seeing or feeling weird/scary things that aren't actually there when you first open your eyes or randomly during the day. From what I've heard/seen it's worse when you're woken up suddenly because your brain is still mostly asleep and trying to catch up. Or, you know, hauntings. I'd like to just blame everything on my cat, but he's living with my sister now, so that's out.
One that has happened an irritating number of times: I sleep with my lights off. My room tends to be pretty dark, though I can see a little bit because a bit of moonlight through the blinds or hallway lights. So I open my eyes, staring up at the ceiling, at it looks like there is a ton of bugs/spiders moving about up there. I...nearly lost control of specific sphincter-required bodily functions the first two times.
Another was actually this morning. I woke up (lying on my side) with the feeling that there was a hand around the front of my neck. Not choking, just pressed there firmly, with the thumb patting/rubbing the side of my neck. I initially thought it was my sister (who is staying with us for the week) because it felt like her hand. I moved to try to get it off and it held on more tightly, so I went limp instead. Which worked, because it let go after a second. I rolled over and saw someone (too shrouded in darkness to make out features) standing there for a moment and then there was nothing.
Another one, and this ones is whited out for the squeamish: I woke from a weird dream where I was at a dangerous camp type place (not a concentration camp..just a summer camp. Which is odd because I've never been to one). I was pretending to be sleeping in the dream when someone injected something into my neck. So I woke up, but I could still feel like there was something there. At the time, I remember actually hearing a squishy sort of bubbling sound coming from my the back of my neck as if my spine was dissolving. I couldn't move for a few seconds and then I was fine, though my neck felt weird for a couple hours just from the memory of that and I was too afraid to crack my neck for like a week.
So, yeah... Anyone else have weird stories to share?
