SLEEP PARALYSIS HELP TIME *******.

Sleep paralysis is ******* terrifying. The whole 'Demon on your chest' thing, completely ******* legit. Most of the time my sleep paralysis includes family members being ripped apart on my bed by demons and I have no ******* clue why. Huge feeling of helplessness and a massive weight on your chest, usually accompanied by demons and big bug eyed monsters lying on my chest. I know they aren't real but when those ******* are breathing on your neck you don't have any idea otherwise.

I have no ******* clue why I get sleep paralysis at all. I've been to psychologists about it and they can't quite put their finger on it either. Trust me when I say this, sleep paralysis is very ******* real and very ******* scary.

I've been struggling with it on and off for about 5 years now, nothing seems to do the trick with regards to getting rid of it permanently

In saying that, I have a few little tips to snap yourself out of it if it unfortunately happens to you.

1. Calm the **** down.
- Seriously, it's ******* terrifying but I've found panicking just makes it worse and last longer, try to just take a few deep breaths if you can and relax yourself, you should snap out of it.
2. Wiggle the everloving **** out of your toes and fingers.
- No idea why, but this helps me snap out of it. May not work for you but it reminds me that I can actually move my own body and helps the rest of my body wake up.
3. Imagine running water.
- Again, no idea why, but imagining a tap running or a shower of even pouring a glass of water helps me snap out of it. I get the feeling that it may just be occupying your mind with something else, but I stick with the water thing because it just helps. Also, I'm scared to try anything else in fear of making it worse.

I hope none of you ******* ever deal with it ever, but if you do, I hope those at least help because I'm telling you. It's just so ******* frightening.

Hope it helps.

Every time I go into sleep paralysis I see the shadow watching me. And i've seen the demons too. But I feel like the shadow figure we see is actually us. Like say we astroprojected and left our bodies. Well mybe we start to wake up while doing so and were seeing ourselves trying to get back into our body. And it just seems like a scary experience. But in all actuality its just us.

Do you sleep on your back? Most times that can be the problem, try sleeping on your side.

Sleeping on your back can cause it too so maybe try sleeping on your stomach or your side? :/ I've had it a few times so I know it can be scary.

God I hate sleep paralysis so much, I have them differently. Anyone else after a dream have another small dream of you in your room staring at lets say a cloaked figure or a demon while screaming in your head? And then waking up able to turn your head and look at the figure until it disappears?

I get sleep paralysis alot but I rarely get hallucinations, its wicked scary and I couldn't imagine how much worse it would be with a demon on my chest, sometimes I'm able to talk but even thats hard, all I can really do is control my breathing and one I was able to say "no no no" over and over again

Okay, I see you're a guy that has a lot of experience, so I'd like to have a word or two with you. I have kind of the same problem, but the thing is, which you didn't specify, it happens to me when I lie down and try to fall asleep. I can't quite precisely describe it, but I just somehow transition into the paralysis and I have real trouble getting out of it.

I don't have hallucinations, thank god, I did have a sight of a bee flying in front of my eyes once, but I knew it was just a hallucination, I guess I'm used to all that ****. Nevertheless, my main issue is that I'll fall into it, get out, gall in, get out and do that fore like 4-5 times until I actually succeed in falling asleep. As for the ways I get out of it, I usually pres my tongue on my teeth, it hurts a bit, but it helps, and i somehow snap out of it, have no idea how, but it's kind of pretty painful, even though I am used to it.

I'm 18(nearly) and this has been an repeated issue for me over the last year or maybe two.

Anyway, I'll be doing some serious research on the theme, so, if you want me to, I can inform you with my work and possibly some help, if I find any.

Call me crazy, but I ******* love sleep paralysis. I don't really feel scared anymore, and it's really the only way I can now. It's also kind of interesting to see where it goes. Unless it's ******* gory, of course. Like, if I have one where someone is walking back and forth in my room, I just try to stay like that for as long as I can. But If there's screaming and ****, I'm ******* noping the **** out of it.

I've only experienced sleep paralysis once, I was ill and had taken some heavy medication (quite probably taken too much). I woke up in the middle of the night on my back (I don't sleep on my back, but for whatever reason I'd woken up this way).

I couldn't move, but I could feel my limbs moving. It's hard to explain, but I was trying to move my arms and legs, it felt like I was moving my arms and legs but they weren't moving. So I kept trying to lift the duvet off me and get out of bed. Repeating the thought process over and over, each time it felt like I had lifted if off of me and was getting up. But I was watching my body trapped and not moving.

There was no shadow or demon but I could hear people talking in a foreign language:
I don't know if everybody has had this experience, but since I moved to France, often when I was in school and there were a lot of people speaking French around me I'd hear what sounded like people speaking English. Like my brain was trying to intemperate what they were saying (this was before I could speak and understand french).
But it was like that, people whispering and speaking around me but I couldn't work out what they were saying. Sometimes I could make out what sounded like people saying my name or saying random phrases. It didn't really bother me though, I knew I was in a safe place.

I didn't actually regain control over my body until I woke up in the morning.

Almost exactly the same experience for me.
I remember I tried really hard to move my arms and just couldn't which freaked me out since it was the first and only time it happened, however I heard a foreign language to like hundreds of people whispering into my ears. They would get louder over time and then eventually it was like hundreds of people screaming these phrases at me that I couldn't understand. I didn't wake up until morning and it never happened again but I never forgot that experience and have always wondered what those people were saying.

I thought for number 3 you said to imagine running on water.

I remember one time I had this night terror that my (ex)girlfriend, that I was sleeping next to was being murdered by someone who looked like me, when he got done he said "now that she is gone, I'm gonna have so much fun watching your life implode all around you." She touched my hand to wake me up and said that I was speaking in another language and it bugged her out. Since then I lost my grandmother, my girlfriend broke up with me and is now keeping my son away from me and it makes me look even worse cause I'm a black guy. I've lost 2 close friends due to cancer and suicide, and I keep having reoccurring night terrors about something choking me and trying to kill me in my sleep. Could that dream be accurate? I feel like I hit rock bottom and fell through.

I get sleep paralysis a lot too.
But nothing that terrifying, I have the feelings something is holding down my chest and there is ALWAYS this creepy guy either standing at the end of my bed never moving either that or he is somewhere in my room just standing annd I have to just imaging where he is because i cant move all to much but i just know he's there.


Also this is on the topic of lucid dreaming.
I used to lucid dream purposely all the time but things got really ******* weird, like as soon as I would begin controlling my dream my brain would turn everything into hell mode and I had no control over it. I would be in the dream, realize it was a dream and start to control it but then everything would go wrong and my worst fears would all start happening. Like one time I had a dream I was at my uncles house and I started to control it but right when i did all the lights in the house went out and it was almost pitch black and then creepy ******* clowns started popping out around every corner, I couldn't fly like normal couldnt get out of the house and i ended up forcing myself to wake up because I was so ******* terrified.

I have heard you might have it if your lucid dream practice goes to **** and you wake up before you are actually awake. When first lucid dream posts came up few years ago, many ppl warned that it might actually cause sleep paralysis.

+ Google is always your friend, but I ain't gonna check links for you since I am just about to go to sleep and I sure as hell don't wana see ******* in my dreams.

Having experienced Sleep Paralysis once in my life, I can safely say that its one of the worst experiences I've ever had. People who have to experience this multiple times in their lives are in my opinion the strongest, from an emotional standpoint. I couldn't fall asleep properly for a week after experiencing it due to fear of it happening again.

The one thing that always helps me is trying to scream, as soon as you realize you can't scream in a seemingly dire situation, you realize it's not real. It helps me snap out of it within a minute or so and as for your description of it, congrats, no one really seems to understand how horrible it is.

I once had a hallucination after I just woke up from a dream. I have Arachnophobia, fear of spiders. And I was dreaming that I was rideing this boat under a very low bridge. In fact it was so low that I had to lay down in the boat so I wouldn't hit my head. After getting a bit I looked up and saw the whole underside of the bridge was covered in web, with all kinds of spiders in it. I froze in place as each spider passed my face.

Then a spider dropped and landed on my neck. I woke up with a shock as I tried to shake the spider off. And I felt it. I felt it crawling down my back. Finaly I succeeded and I saw the spider land in my bed and crawl under my pillow. So I grabbed the pillow and started pounding at the place where it just was. After calming down I checked under it, only to found nothing. The whole experience felt so real and it took me a while to understand that it wasn't.

As I said in the begining this have only happened to me once and I have no idea what triggers it.

srly **** spiders, I got so creaped out by just searching for a relevant pic to add
Also I apologise for poor grammar

Every time I have sleep paralysis it has started out as lucid dream.I am dreaming something awesome, just going with the flow. Feel really happy and postive, and all it takes is a single dark thought. My dream goes from rainbows and sunshine to being paralyized. Some of things I've seen:
Like you I also have a phobia of spiders, and have experienced them crawling on me. I wasn't able to move until I woke up though.
My best friend cutting the skin off her face with a jagged rusty piece of metal, and then finally slitting her own throat.
A pack of children tearing apart and eating a middle aged woman, until there was only bones.
I've seen a demon, but I only remember the hand choking me.
The most terrifying one by far was 6 false wake ups in a row, all different, but with sleep paralysis.

Sleep paralysis started for me, when I learnt how to start luicd dreams. I've since then probably had about 15-20 experiences, and they don't get any less terrifying.

I've had a few experiences none too terrifying but nonetheless scary. I realized it would happen when i'm trying to fall asleep while daydreaming, like, thinking about **** with your eyes closed. sometimes i would slip into it as soon as i stopped thinking but there was one warning that I found. I started to hear the sound of hands clapping. I studied it one restless night, I found it to be very bizarre. I consider it to be a warning

I dreamed I died once. I couldn't feel anything. It felt like I was floating but the sound was muffled like if I was underwater. I had no body. All I saw was black around me but I didn't know what it was and by that I mean I didn't know what I was looking at I couldn't think I couldn't move. I just was.

I know for myself what makes sleep paralysis more likely to occur for me:
sleeping during the day and mucking up my sleep cycle.

I used to get them a LOT, sometimes several times a night. But now I've learnt how to deal with them by fighting through it.

try sleeping with a cold wash cloth on your forehead, I sleep on my back so it works for me and if I focus on the coldness of the wash cloth it helps me snap out of sleep paralysis

I've gone through sleep paralysis too, though it wasn't this bad. There have been three times I can remember, and they involve the shadow people mentioned in the OP. The last time was the worst, as it was when I actually couldn't move. I saw the shadow person, and turned on my stomach. I then got a tingling feeling in between my shoulder blades and couldn't move, so I started panicking. I thought that the shadow person was a demonic being there to kill me.

The second time I experienced it was kind of funny as the shadow person looked like a really fat guy doing squats.

I have sleep paralysis a lot too, although It's usually very entertaining for me. The last time it happened I played Uno with the entire wrestling team, while they were wearing unitards. I like sleep paralysis, and it usually helps me lucid dream too.

Sleep paralysis does not happen to me when I sleep face down.
When it happens I try to go back to sleep and then I can wake up normally.
Simple but I hope it helps.

change your breathing speed. breath quicker. your body knows that fast breathing = time to wake up. it takes about 5 seconds of this, but it always works (for me, anyways).

I experienced sleep paralysis once. It was about a year ago. I had waken up early in the morning, and fallen back to sleep. About a half hour later I woke up completely paralized. At first, I didn't realize it - I was in my semi-awake state that I usually am in just after waking up. Then, I heard a noise. It was similar to something you would hear in a cartoon - a bounce sound effect. It was a "boing" type of noise. I didn't think anything of it, maybe just the TV in the other room. Then, I tried moving, and I realized what was happening. At that moment, I tried my hardest not to think of anything remotely scary. I remembered reading on the internet that in order to get out of sleep paralysis, you must start by moving your smaller muscles (i.e. fingers and toes) and work your way up. I eventually got out without seeing anything scary, and the only thing I heard was a "boing" noise. I still find that odd to this day.

I've had the shadow that the post was talking about. sleep paralysis hit me one night when i was sleeping with my girlfriend at the time. I tried to speak to her but it was as if my jaw was clenched out of my control. That's when things started getting wierd. Everytime I closed my eyes I was standing in my yard, pitch black outside except for the light from the backdoor. It scared me at first so I opened my eyes and felt like someone was in the room. That scared me too so I closed my eyes again and i was in my backyard. The longer i kept my eyes closed the more I would start being lifted into the air by this... darkness, and since that was terrifying the man in the room didn't seem so bad. luckily I didn't get dragged away too far before I regained control

I was hit with sleep paralysis just this weekend and it was the most terrifying one yet. Well i was half a sleep but i was pretty aware of my dream and it was my older brother who doesn't live with me anymore come visit and he walked into my room with my mom to say i hi but i was sleeping but i pretended to fake sleep in my dream. so he came from behind my bed and started to mess with me as a joke and my mom was telling him to stop, but he was like im just gunna blow this lil ball that squirts air into his ear, but half way as he was doing that i woke up but still felt air being sprayed into my ear, but i couldnt move and i was scared out of my mind because i felt it continue for another 20 seconds and still couldnt move, i stayed up the rest of the night.....

I've had sleep paralysis like a few times on and off in my life. My experiences are a bit different than yours though.

The first time confused and scared the **** out of me, I just had my eyes open all of a sudden and couldn't move or make sounds. After like 30 seconds or some amount of time, I was able to move again but I was freaked the **** out and ducked under my covers sweating for about 30 minutes. Didn't really talk about it much afterwards.

Second time it happened is kinda funny looking back on it. Same as first, but whatever was happening in my dream just started happening in front of my eyes. It didn't really help that it was a nightmare (although it was like a cheesy 40s film in black and white, like it was just a bloody head spinning). ****** terrifying really, but looking back it sounds like a really bad joke.

I know I've had it a few times after that, but the only memorable ones are the times where I kind of just went "yeah don't freak out, you got this" then almost instantly start visualizing ghosts/whatever happens to scare the **** out of me.

tl;dr scary as **** because you can't move or **** and you aren't used to it, but funny/embarassing looking back at it. also never had that "demon on chest" thing

on a side note, something has been happening to me before I sleep for the past few months. I get a jolt or shock in my head when I'm lying down trying to sleep, but it starts off small and grows into a painful shock if I don't reposition my head or turn it. Also, one time I just started to visualize ghosts/demons in my head (I was falling asleep) and every time I did, I got a pretty strong jolt. kinda related, kinda not

I have sleep paralysis often, probably about 5 or 6 times a month. Now it's gotten to the point where it's not even scary, just annoying. Oooo except the other night. I was having a nightmare and as soon as I realized I was dreaming, I woke up. Except I didn't fully wake up and I fell into sleep paralysis. I was freaked out from the dream and it freaked me out even more because the room was dark as hell and I couldn't move. **** was awful.

when I had it, I literally opened my eyes and tried to scream as loud as I could, but I couldn't activate the muscles to do so. then I peeked to my right and I saw this big shadow with two red eyes literally inches away from my face. all I could hear was several voices whispering, not just from the shadow, but from the entire bedroom. it's some creepy ****.

I have it all the time and I rarely open my eyes, and I've had a hallucination only once (a ******* big bee like 5cm from my eyes), so I'd say keeping your eyes closed does help, but it's still a ******* bad experience, even though it happens to me all the time, I still have the pain and the really bad feeling when it happens, no matter how used to it I am.

well it does sound pretty bad. I've never had it personaly but I heard that trying to fall back asleep is probably the best thing you can do since you know that none of this is real.
I can only imagine how a person that experiences it must feel without actually knowing about it to begin with.

It's a pretty crappy experience. I've only had it happen once. And it was on accident. Something made me open my eyes, just as I fell asleep, and somehow it triggered it. I didn't hallucinate, but I was facing my wall, with very little light in the room. And it made me feel like something was staring at me from behind.

After I opened my eyes, I couldn't move anything. Couldn't close my eyes. Couldn't even move them. And the feeling of something watching me caused me to panic. Couldn't feel anything, other than being cold. I knew my heart was racing, but couldn't feel it pumping, like I normally could.

All I wanted to do, was to turn around and see if anything was there. And I struggled and struggled to twist my body, but it didn't budge. Eventually, I started to roll a bit. and the more I rolled, the more I could start to move. By the time I was back onto my back, I was able to move everything, but the panic was set in pretty fine.

The whole time, I knew what was going on. I knew what it was. But even then, it was that feeling of being watched. That "what if someone, or something is standing right behind me", feeling. It kinda sucked.

You get used to it.

I suppose I'm lucky and unlucky at the same time. I sleep face down, and half the time I wake up and find myself suffocating and unable to move. Never seen these shadows or anything though, at first I was too worried about dying I guess, now if barely happens anymore, and I got used to it anyway.

Now that I know that demon **** is real I'll just keep sleeping face down thank you very much.

Yes close your ******* eyes! That's all you have to do! I experienced this a couple times and when you open your eyes the scary hallucinations start. Voices and images appear! Once you close your eyes the voices quiet down and you continue having a normal dream but you are aware of it

You can experience them as from within a dream or in real life. The last one I had was in a dream, a dog was sniffing in my ear, and it woke me up. In turn I had to go through with what arronventura explained above. I also had one from within a dream a year back where I was pinned to a table by a shadow but it was in a different room in my house. Both had the same sensation so I know they were sleep paralysis.

I used to often wake up in the middle of the night and I experienced sleep paralysis. Though, I never experienced demons or monsters, just paralysis, so I got of lucky I guess. A thing I do to help is that sometimes you can jerk some limbs slightly, (at least I was able to) try to get them off your bed. I don't know why but it helps me and in a couple seconds I'm always fine. But again, when I'm in sleep paralysis I do not see images and I have normal brain control.

I have really bad sleep paralysis too, but for some reason I've never had the hallucinations or anything. It's just me unable to move for a time, and the terror of not being able to move. I guess I should count myself fortunate.

I want to try this at least once in my life. I know it's terrifying and that nothing good comes out of it, but I want the experience. However, completely unrelated to sleep paralysis, I have experienced hallucinations in the past and have had some trouble with my sleep stability.

I'm going to try this, but I'm going to have a girl in the bed with me (when I find someone who I feel comfortable doing it with). You think this would help? If anything, when I snap out of it I have someone to comfort me, but I'm thinking of letting her know what I'm doing as well and that she can do something to comfort me later in the night while it's happening (like rub my back or something).

I'm just worried it might make it worse. Instead of the comfort of someone rubbing my back I might see demons ripping my skin off.

Seriously my good man, for a few weeks when I was younger I had those happen to me every now and then. Add to that that I'm claustrophobic and it all gets even better. First time it happened I was so goddamn scared I cried for like 10 minutes afterwards.

It's really not an experience you wanna have.

I've had it too, the first time about a year ago, I layed in my bed, woke up unable to move, and saw a black hand coming from behind the curtain. I was on the second story, making it worse somehow. It was slightly shining in the light, writhing around and convulsing and I ******* ****, man, I couldn't move or anything. Then I snapped out of it, got up, noticed weird things, and...woke up again. I've been ******* bamboozled, I woke up from dreaming about sleep paralysis, to actual sleep paralysis, with that same ******* hand. Needless to say, I didn't sleep well for a week. It happened again at some point, this time with a bright light and snake like thing on my the top of my window. After that, one with a hand across my chest. Then I learnt a trick myself, since I get it every few weeks now.   
   
I close my eyes. I can't see whatever horrors my mind conjures up if I keep my eyes shut, and from there I just struggle to move and wake up. I keep them shut, and resist whatever urge I might have to open them. I once did open them and remembered why I keep them shut. If you get sleep paralysis, close your god damn mother ******* eyes. By now I can keep pretty calm when I get it, I wake up and just think "Ah ******* cunt, I can't move, son of a bitch."    
   
And if you're thinking "Hey this might be neat, I should try and induce it" like someone I know seems to think, look at this gif, this is the sort of **** you'll see. **** is not ******* cool.

OH YEAH, and like another dude mentioned, sleeping on your back increases the chance, since during sleep paralysis, breathing becomes more difficult, and laying on your back makes breathing more difficult too, apparently. So it somehow affects it.

I miss sleeping on my back, I never do anymore because I don't want **** to keep happening.

I know the hallucinations aren't real, but it's kinda creepy how identical peoples experiences are when having sleep paralysis. it's almost always an evil figure laying on top of you, unabling you from moving, or it's some shadow somewhere in the room watching you. there's always noises like breathing or whispering.

if it's hallucinations, shouldn't our experiences be completely different? how come most people see the same stuff, even when they don't know about others experiences. if I didn't know better I'd think these stuff are real

Nerd moment;

Lots of false information in this post. The post is correct to say that everyone dreams every night, but usually not 4-6 times a night. Usually around 3, maybe only 1 or 2 depending on your individual sleep cycle. The reason for that is that, like the author said later, Stages 1-4 of sleep (non-REM sleep) last about 90 minutes, after which you enter REM sleep, where dreaming occurs. The first REM cycle lasts 10 minutes, the next 20, the next 30, and by then you've already slept for 7 or 8 hours and you've probably woken up. Most people don't sleep the 10+ hours necessary to hit the 4th REM cycle (i.e., the 4th dream). The reason we forget them isn't because they aren't "important," but because you only remember the ones you wake up during (i.e., when you wake up in the middle of a REM cycle, which is when you wake up feeling most alert and ready to go, and the cycle in which you have and can still remember dreams). That's why we usually can't even remember 1 dream a day; most of the time, Stages 1-4 being much longer than an individual REM cycle, we wake up during one of the Stages. Since you don't wake up during the 1st or 2nd REM cycle (or you wouldn't have hit the 3rd), it's virtually impossible to remember the 1st or 2nd dream.

The post also said that all faces we see in our dreams are from the real world. That's usually true, but not always. The human brain is a very powerful and complicated thing; of course it can "create" its own faces if it wants to, even in dreams.

The post also said that neurotransmitters shut down during the REM cycle. It's not only false, it doesn't actually make sense. Neurotransmitters are the chemicals that travel in synapses between neurons (specifically, between dendrites and axon terminals of individual neurons). They can't "shut down" because they don't actually function; they're the result of the function of an actual part of the nervous system.

The rest was true, though.

I've had dreams where I would be in one place and then instantly somewhere else. This makes sense now. I would always have dreams of people that would LOOK like people I would know but they were always different. Which would bother the **** out of me. I would also have coincidences of being somewhere I've never been then later on when I'm awake I'd go somewhere that would remind me of my dream and making me feel de ja vu.

Thank you for posting that, I was a little bummed that the facts weren't all straight in the comp. Although I can't see a reliable way way to come to the conclusion that the faces we dream about are "real" faces. I mean, we couldn't possibly do that experimentally. I have thought that is probably just an assumption based on that the face recognition/memory-system is so exceptional. I'd think it's likely that, when we dream, we at least create faces from components of faces we have seen, unless it's an actual face-memory. I know you weren't saying otherwise, I simply felt a need to elaborate.

It's not normal, no. What it probably means is that you've made a habit of being sleep-deprived, which forces your brain to go into REM sleep almost immediately after you fall asleep (and skips the first 4 stages altogether for the first cycle). In other words, it's normal if you're in school and work and never get enough sleep (which is probably why you needed to take a 1-hour power-nap in the first place).

What probably happened is that you were very tired but had to try to keep yourself awake a while longer, knocked out accidentally, went straight into REM sleep, caught yourself, woke up, fell asleep again, went straight into REM sleep, and so on.

I'm not a psychiatrist, but you should probably try to find a more regular sleeping pattern. Making a habit of sleep-deprivation can result in anything from weight gain and depressed mood (for most people) or even insanity (in extreme cases).

It used to happen to me a lot when I was a child, this old hag would float over me and keep me down, I couldn't even talk.

Wear a sleeping mask while sleeping, so that you don't hallucinate demons on your body.
Also, try imagining yourself climbing up a rope while in the paralyzis, you will eventually have an OBE

I once had a lucid dream. Literally the moment I realized it, boom.
I started sucking my own dick.

Once, back when i was in highschool, i remember waking up in the middle of the night. My room was completely silent except the hum from my dvd player. The only light was the menu of whatever dvd i had fallen asleep during. My eyes were able to open and move, but my body seems to be locked down to my bed. My eyes were able to move so i glanced down to the foot of my bed. Standing there, in front of my tv, was a shadow. Tall and alien-like in shape. I tried to shout for help, calling for anyone, only a shrill whisper would escape. As panic set in deeper the shadow's arms began to raise up and it's shoulders rise. With every bit of strength in my body I pushed up, trying to detach myself from my bed. The shadow grew larger, and it's arms raised higher and began to reach over my bed, towards me. Finally, with everything i had in me, my body was able to lift, i flew forward as if i was in a car crash, and my head came crashing down back to my bed. This exact incident has happened three times since then. Every time that it's happened I've looked at my clock. Each time was 3:30 a.m.

No.*******.Way. Pretty much the exact same **** has happened to me. Tell me, in your experience, as the shadow came closer did you start to see its true form?, for me i did...and the closest thing to resemblance of what i saw that night would be a Dementor from Harry Potter. I swear to Jesus and space buddah i was forcing my arms up so ******* hard that i nearly pissed myself. The thing was maybe 4 inches from my face when i was able to lift my arm in the hardest ******* punch i have ever thrown it was some Rocky Balboa **** up in my room and since it wasn't real my hand just slid right through it and my hand went straight through my goddamn wall. (i can provide proof). And i *******.****.you.not...i was able to get up and walk around (**** strained on my legs like 1000 tons though) with that ******* demon-demontor floating around me.

Honestly it was like a silhouette of the Mr. Burns alien from The Simpsons.
Sounds weird, I know.
<-This ****, but all black, no distinguishing features.

yeah, i got the silhouette part...but seeing as they look the same in color, that (to me) doesnt look as scary as what i saw. Even if it was like 6'6 just my opinion

it was less the way it looked but the way it moved toward me. as if it were growing taller, and its arms gaining reach over my bed, toward my face. And it was massive. Probably about 6'6".
