My Experience: It was the summer of 2015 and I was heading into college, something that I was excited about, I wasn’t nervous at all. I had fallen asleep on the family room couch at around 10:00 am and woke up at around 10:30 am. When I woke up I realized that I could not move. I did not panic at first because I just thought it was sleep paralysis. I have had it before and it was never a scary experience, I just waited for it to pass. But this felt different. Usually when I have sleep paralysis I feel a pressure all over my body not in one spot. On this morning I felt a pressure building on top and around my chest like someone was sitting or kneeling there. I still was not scared but the pressure continued to build until it was hard to take a breath in. Then it felt like two hands had wrapped around my neck and started squeezing. This is when I began to panic, and this is also when I realized I could move my arms and legs. They felt heavy but I could move them. I tried to get off the couch as hard as I could but what ever was on top of me had my torso pinned. I even got on my stomach at one point and tried to claw my way over the side of the couch. I tried to scream for help but every time I tried the thing squeezed harder and cut the scream off. I ended back on my back and I refused to look up at my chest. I was afraid of what I was going to see, I could feel an energy there that caused me to feel fear like I had never felt before. I am not an easily scared person. Paranormal experiences have been happening to me my whole life, they were never as violent as this and they had never scared me like this. I thought that I was going to die. My vision was going black and I started seeing spots. I used my hand to make the sign of the cross on my leg and I started to pray. I asked God, Jesus and any saint or angel that could hear me to help. I few moments after I started to pray it all ended. I shot up and the presence that was there only a moment ago was gone. The pillows that had been on the couch were thrown on the ground. I tried to write it off as just the worst case of sleep paralysis I had ever had but a week later I saw something that convinced me otherwise. The hallway from my kitchen goes straight to our family room, so when leaving the kitchen you get a clear view of our back door and the couch that I had been sleeping on. About a week after my attack I was walking out of my kitchen at around 7:45 pm. My dad was watching TV and sitting on the couch that I had been sleeping on. Behind him was a tall shadow man, his head almost touched the ceiling. He wore a hat and and you could not see through him. He had not facial features either. He was staring down at my dad. I stared at that figure for a second before walking past the opening of the hallway and back again. By the time i stepped back the figure was gone. Since this has happened paranormal activity has continued to happen at my house ranging from things being thrown, scratches, and noises of people and things moving around in the middle of night when everyone else is asleep.
