My Story: A few years ago, I was at home in bed and suddenly awoke to the feeling that someone was in my room. I looked around the room while lying down noticing it was quite early. 3 am. As I turned my head back to the other side of the room I saw a dark shadow like figure between my bed and the wall. I followed it with my eyes as the figure moved up the wall and across the ceiling from left to right where it then disappeared. A couple of seconds later I felt something sit down on my bed next to my legs. It heavy enough to bow the mattress like it was a very big person sitting there. I tried to get up but my entire body was frozen to the bed like I was being pushed down into the mattress, every muscle unable to move. Shortly after realizing I was completely paralyzed, I began to be choked furiously by the thing/person on my bed. The thing that terrified me most was my inability to fight back, my arms, legs, torso, everything pinned. I have never been a religious person but when I could not fight off my assailant, suddenly the Lords Prayer came to my mind. I began to pray ; Our Father who art in heaven… trying to vocalize the words through my constricted wind pipe. About 3/4 the way through the prayer, the hold on my throat was released and that thing was gone. The heaviness I felt on my bed had disappeared and after several minutes my muscles slowly returned to normal function. I had never been so afraid in my entire life as I was that night. Until three nights later when it happened again. Once more I feel that the lords Prayer saved me from whatever it was in my room those nights.
Fortunately I’ve not had any other repeat experiences since, however after those occurrences I have suffered through bouts of deep depression and nearly daily thoughts of suicide. I am slowly getting better but I have wondered for some time now if there is anyone else who has ever experienced what I went through. Comments would be greatly appreciated and please forgive me for not using my real name. I am embarrassed by this situation and do not want someone to find my story by googling my name. Thank you.
