    sleeper) and looked into the mirror. As I looked into the mirror I saw something extremely weird, like the Japanese ghost from lady from the movie "grudge". And then I was just like, "oh yeah that's just My reflection."

    when I first lay down to sleep. It feels just like a cat jumping on the bed and moving around. When I look it stops and there's nothing there. I stop looking and it resumes. It even kneads the bed like a cat. Any similar experiences?
