The following report was sent into our website by Kelsey on February 20, 2014:
“When I was thirteen I used to get this reoccurring nightmare. It starts out with me waking up in my bed and I would look over at my clock and it would always say 3:00am.
The first few nights it repeated the same way: me waking up and checking my clock. After this repeated itself several times I started to see a figure reflected in the face of the clock. Each night the figure started to move closer and closer until one night I was waking up from my dream, but I couldn’t move! My eyes started to flutter with the strain of trying to open. I tried to scream for my mom but nothing but gurgles came out of my mouth. I thought she couldn’t have possibly have heard me but she shortly ran into my room and shook me till I noticed that I could move.
I was so scared I started bawling my eyes when my mom asked who was in my room. I had no idea what she meant since I was pretty sure I just had a nightmare. But she swore that when she was in the hallway she saw a figure sitting on my chest. And that when she got into the room the figure had disappeared. When I really thought about it, it had felt as if someone was sitting on my chest.
From that night on I started sleeping with my mom, and I didn’t start sleeping on my own again until we moved from that house. The nightmares have stopped but I still freak out anytime I’m awake at 3.”
