I think I am just going nuts to even tell anyone this, but
I have to tell someone. I was born in Pensacola, Florida in 1960. One of the first
memories I have is being terrified to look out of a
window at night. I think maybe I was three. I have 2
older brothers who have said that they were petrified to
go to bed at night.
The brother who is ten years older
than me said he felt "something breathing down his
neck" on numerous occasions while he was in his top
bunk, and they both say that they felt like something was
"going to get them." Well, they think it was
ghosts but I don't. I remember lights. What kind of
lights I don't know, just LIGHTS.
My mother told me that
she could never understand why I would have such fits
when the Blue Angels held practice shows and flew over
our house. She said I would cower and scream...and I did,
I remember. It wasn't the noise the planes made. I wasn't
scared of loud noises. It was the idea that something
flying might be coming to get me.
When I was 5 we moved to Columbus,
Ohio...and this is where my memories start getting really
weird. I HATED my room and the big picture window in it.
Mom put my bed right under the window and I begged her
not to put it under the window. She told me to stop being
silly, nothing was going to get me. I would sneak down to
the basement and crawl into bed with my brother Don. I
felt safe in his basement bedroom.
Sometimes he would
make me go back to my own room, and one night after he
ran me off, I had what I thought was a dream...but was it
a dream? In this dream I woke up and something HORRIBLE
was standing by my bed. My mind turned whatever it was
into Mickey Mouse, but even though it was Mickey Mouse it
was still horrid. That vivid image of Mickey Mouse is
still with me to this day and I am 38 years old!
When I was 12 we moved to Snowshoe,
West Virginia. I became utterly fascinated with watching
the sky at night. I would sit outside, even in the snow,
to watch the sky. There were strange lights sometimes,
and even though it scared me I was still compelled to
I married and moved to Norfolk, Virginia, and it is here that the "buzzing"
noise started. It hasn't happened when I am awake, or at
least not that I have been aware of, but when I am asleep
I get this awful "buzzing" in my head and it is
numbing. It makes me mad that I can't find the words to
describe this thing, all I can relate it to is it sounds
like an electrical current and it vibrates my whole body.
It feels like I am paralyzed (this just sounds nuts, even
to me). Sometimes I can make it "go away",
sometimes I can't.
It seems like I am awakened when it
happens, but I can't be sure. I do know that I am
conscience of it because the last time it happened was a
couple of weeks ago and although I didn't tell my husband
(he doesn't know about any of this) he asked me if I had
a nightmare because I screamed "NO"! in my
sleep and woke him up.
I am trying to be rational about all
this, I know that when you are asleep (REM stage) your
body produces a chemical that causes your muscles to
relax so that you don't "act out" your dreams,
and it causes a sensation of paralysis should you happen
to be awakened. But what in the world would cause an
electricial humming sensation? I am at the point where I
am considering going to my doctor and telling him all
this so he can check to see if I maybe have a brain tumor
or something, but in my heart I know I don't. I know I am
not crazy or given to flights of fancy either.
So, has anyone else complained of this
problem or am I just trying to put too much stock in some
vague memories and make something where there isn't
anything? I would appreciate any input.
you described has also been described by abductees. That
does not mean you are automatically an abductee, but your
experiences are parallel. The bedtime visitors, your
brother's comments about the breathing on his neck, your
fear of the window, the lights, sneaking off to the
basement bedroom, etc., are all common indicators.
Watching the sky at night is another indicator.
Many others have reported the buzzing sound
which is often the forerunner or start of the impending
paralysis at the start of many abductions. You are also
experiencing the fear aspect which comes as you begin to
grasp what may be happening in your life. In the next few
years, you may find yourself remembering other things as
