Am I Just Being A Scaredy Cat?
Ever since I was little I was never able to sleep in a room by myself. I remember being so terrified and crying myself to sleep if I was forced to, for me, when I was a child, that was by far the worst punishment.
I am now 19 years old and although I don’t scream when I have to sleep by myself, I still get scared and usually end up sleeping in my siblings room even though I’m the oldest (which is even more embarrassing). I had my window open the other night and I heard and seen a black figure just appear and shoot out of the window. So I quickly shut my window. I get a lot of random thoughts that I know aren’t my own, sometimes they are very bad thoughts. Sometimes they come into my dreams and the dreams are so surreal that I forget I’m dreaming (I’m usually aware in my dreams, that’s its all just a dream) and they scare me so much, that I start praying to archangel Michael.
Some nights I can sleep by myself but most I cant. I get too scared and intimidated. I get high pitch ringing in my ear and sometimes a very intense thumping, vibrating sound that just sends my insane. I never get headaches, EVER! But sometimes for no particular reason I get intense, short lasting headaches.
I’m a homeless kid at the moment, so I move around a lot and the place I’m staying at at the moment makes me forget my dreams. I usually always remember them but now I only remember the bad dreams. I’ve never been pinned down in my sleep before, but I have been twice since I’ve been here. I wake up in fear and I can’t sit up, I try to scream for my sister but nothing comes out.
