So I ended up getting little sleep and ended up freaking myself out last night…
I went to bed at 10 with my cat, and I decided to sleep with my little lamp on (you twist a side thing to turn it on). It took me about an hour to fall asleep, but it was fine. I woke up at exactly 3am dazed and confused, having sat up straight in my bed and found myself grabbing my cat for no reason. I decided to let her out and got back in bed. As I settled in, I suddenly realized my lamp was -off-. Aaand my dad was the only other person in the house and was snoring (in the morning he said he never went in my room).
At first I thought the bulb blew out…but it turned back on easily. Um, when I fell asleep it was -on-. Weird. I prayed for awhile but I couldn’t get back to sleep so I called my fiance` and he talked to me awhile. I have never been spooked before. I usually have no problem walking through the house (including the basement) in the dark or anything, I don’t even bother turning on the lights.
Around 5am my dad got up for work so I left my door open (I was still feeling nervous). I started to drift off asleep, when it suddenly felt like my chest was super heavy, and I felt like I couldn’t move at all. I tried to yell for my dad, but I couldn’t speak, my lips wouldn’t move and my ears were ringing. After what felt like forever I finally was able to yell for my dad. He came in asking what was up and it all stopped, I think I had fallen half asleep and had like a waking nightmare or something.
It was bizarre. I couldn’t sleep at all after that. I feel better now but am still a bit anxious.
I really need some sleep, please pray I don’t have any nightmares tonight, I have to drive back up to school tomorrow which is a long drive and I need to be rested. I just needed to vent about this. Anyway, maybe reading more scripture before bed would help?
