My Intro/new To This
Hey everyone. I am new here! My name is CJ, I am 18 years old, and I am a female. I have been experiencing night terror type symptoms since I can remember back on my sleep patterns; I have always had problems with sleeping, or rather my lack thereof. I was never formally diagnosed because of my mother's lack of support in taking me to a sleep lab, however my doctors have always been concerned because of my insomnia and my being scared to sleep. I have had several different horrifying dreams, but there are two that always come back, however they have become less frequent now. One terror that I had a few months back luckily was only one night only, which was quite enough of a scare. I looked over at my clock which said it was 3:05 AM. I sat there looking at my ceiling, recalling the events from my day. I then looked up because someone had entered my room without knocking. I said, "Mom what are you doing?" and there was dead silence. So I then sat up and blinked and the woman was all of a sudden at the side of my bed. I started to scream as she looked at me with a bloody eye ball and scratch under her left eye ands he reached down for my throat. I kicked and hid under the remaining covers on my bed shaking in fear and crying. I lifted the covers and my door was still open and my covers on the floor, but there was no woman. My dad rushed out of his room yelling and was wondering what just happened but I couldn't breathe enough to talk to him. I looked at my phone and the time was then 3:13. I deal with my dreams by not sleeping whenever I can and keeping at least one light on in every corner of my room, and I never sleep in the full darkness. I really do not know what I could to stop these evil things.
