Whenever I am at home, during the day, and I decide to take a quick nap, I always sense something in that between stage of being half awake/half asleep. It could just be me, but it feels really strange. Like I’m always trying to force myself to wake up because I feel a presence touch me.
For example, just now I was trying to fall asleep, and I almost was, but then I felt something flick my hair. I couldn’t move, then I felt something press against my back and look over at me. I kept forcing myself to wake up but it felt like it took a long time. I live in a little house that was built in the ’40s, and found out recently that a friend of mine used to also live in this house (rent) and her crazy ex husband killed their dog here. Which is crazy because one day, same circumstance: during the day, trying to nap while my son is at school, I felt something jump up on the bed and move around.
Now, I already have a little dog, but she was curled up under the covers at the time, but I felt her growling. Then the movement stopped, and I felt something curl up behind my back, like a dog would. I couldn’t move, then had to force myself up. This is totally freaking me out. I’ve had some other weird instances happen where lights were turned on when I swear I had turned them off, or things have been moved. But it’s always subtle and I always just think my mind is playing tricks on me when I’m alone.
So.. am I just being crazy?
