Tuesday morning I wake up around 10 AM after only a few hours of sleep. I feel rested but this happens so often I know better and since I have to work 3rd shift that night, I know I need to get some more sleep. I turn on the TV and start watching ‘House’ (on all day on Tuesdays) while lying in bed trying to go back to sleep. After about an hour or so I can feel like I’m getting tired and close my eyes while lying facing my room. I could still hear the TV and knew that I was not asleep, only had my eyes closed. With my eyes open the room was dark with the only light being that of the TV and the light from the open window curtains in the living room and dining room coming in through the open door. It was dark, but not so dark that I couldn’t make out the silhouettes of everything in my room and know where they were. However, with my eyes closed, in my mind I could still see my room and everything only darker. Silhouettes were barely visible except for the door where most of the light was coming from. Suddenly, I see a giant figure crouch and enter through the doorway. I could see detail and kind of make out what it was, the best way I can describe it would be like a big troll from a movie. It was so tall that it had to crouch to get through the door way and even yet to be in the room. I followed him with my eyes for a moment before another creature just like it crouched through the door. He turned his head towards me and my eyes snapped open. Obviously looking around proved that there was not two giant trolls chillin’ in my room. I thought to myself, ‘what the hell?’ and watched some more TV.

A little while later I closed my eyes again and just like the last time, I could hear the TV and knew I wasn’t asleep and could see my room just as I did before. This time within thirty seconds I saw two hands grab the end of the door from behind it. The area behind the door was nearly pitch black and the fingers were long and thin. Suddenly, as if she was pulling herself from behind the door, the head of a girl appeared. She was dark, but I could make out the long hair and see small features that lead me to believe that it was female and about 12-14 years old. Anything else was hard to make out. Her head slowly appeared and she looked right at me as soon as she could. Even with my eyes closed I thought, ‘what the hell?’ and suddenly, kind of like a jerk of movement, her head came closer to me. My eyes snapped open again and now with the room lighter, I could see there was nothing there. My heart raced a little and I really thought, ‘what the fuck?’

I decided to turn around and face the wall. I closed my eyes and loosely listened to the TV while all I could see was black. I didn’t have my eyes closed for long before I saw a quick flash of light and at the same time heard the TV make a… ‘bleep’ or ‘blip’ or something like that kind of noise. Like if you’ve seen ‘Fight Club’ when Ed Norton is talking about ‘Tyler Durden’ cutting porn into family movies, when they show the ‘cigarette burn.’ I don’t know how else to describe it. I opened my eyes and looked at the TV. I grabbed the remote and rewound the show back to before I closed my eyes and watched thinking maybe there was a skip or lag in the program. Nothing. Maybe I just imagined it..?

Again I turned around and faced the room and after a while I closed my eyes to try and sleep. I started to think to myself, ‘what the hell is going on?’ and then noticed I was seeing the room the same as I had before. Just to the right of the door from where the wall meets the ceiling I saw an arm reach out into the air and grab and recede back into nothing. I though, ‘what?’ but kept my eyes closed and tried to sleep. Then, looking, in my mind with my eyes closed, towards my computer I see a dark rectangular figure kind of hovering in the air near my computer. At first I thought, that’s a usual figure there, there’s something there that would make that shape. Then the shape started to change slowly and made the shape of a body that began to bend backwards. I opened my eyes again and realized I was wrong and there was nothing there that could possibly make the original shape I saw.

Finally after about five hours, I started to watch an episode of ‘House’ and fell asleep within five minutes. I woke up when the episode was ¾ over and thought, ‘I spelt, and perhaps I can get some sleep now.’ I turned off the TV and was able to sleep for a few more hours before waking up for work…

After work Tuesday night/Wednesday morning I laid down and watched some of the episodes of ‘House’ I recorded while I was asleep/at work. I watched a few episodes before falling asleep. This time closing my eyes didn’t bring strange visions, they only happened after I was asleep.

At first I fell asleep and started to dream. From what I can recall, each time I went back to sleep and dreamt, there were two different dreams that happened each time. Both had to do with someone in a hospital room, which I presumed to stem from watching so many episodes of house that day and the day prior. The first dream was of a boy in a hospital bed. I don’t remember much about these beginnings of the dreams, but each one started with him, and then went to the other that got weird.

The second part of the dream the first time I fell asleep was an old lady lying in a hospital bed. She was unresponsive and there was no one there. I was looking at her as if I was directly in front of the bed but up high like where the wall and ceiling meet. I was looking straight down at her at an angel and then someone came into the room. The woman was passed out and the person passed her bed and became kind of out of sight. Suddenly, a dark shadowy figure came in. It was another woman dressed in a flowing dark dress. She was old, 80s or 90s and I knew for sure she was a ghost as soon as she entered. She walked up to the bed of the lady and her left hand went and hovered over her face. I watched in awe and suddenly the ghostly woman was gone. Suddenly, the face of the ghostly woman rose very quickly out of the face of the woman on the bed directly at me. I snapped awake and breathed heavily for a while.

I instantly thought, ‘not again’ and watched some more ‘House’ before closing my eyes again and trying to sleep.  Because the rest of what happened were dreams, I don’t remember exactly what happened or what I saw, but to the best of my recollection, I remember each time starting the dream with the young boy in a hospital room and then going to the old lady. Next what I remember was the old lady this time sitting in a chair in front of a mirror. She was brushing her hair and I was viewing her from her right side looking towards her and there was a mirror on the wall to her left. At first I could she her head, smiling as she brushed her hair and such. Then she would move forward and I couldn’t see the mirror on the wall to her left. Then she’d move back and I could see her and the mirror. Nothing unusual. She moved forward again and the mirror was obscured. Then she moved back again slightly and in the bottom corner of the mirror I saw the face of the ghostly lady that came at me earlier. I snapped awake and thought, ‘what is happening?’

It wasn’t long before I fell asleep again and was again looking at the lady doing her hair, after of course seeing the boy in his room. The mirror was empty the first few times I saw it. Then, suddenly, the face of the ghostly lady was visible again. This time the instant view of her did not snap me awake and I looked at her. The old woman blocked the ghostly lady from my view again and I kind of relaxed in my dream. Then, the old lady back up again and the ghostly lady in the mirror was not in the mirror anymore and was just behind the old lady’s head when she moved. I instantly snapped awake and could feel my heart racing. ‘Great!’ I thought. ‘It’s gonna be awhile before I get to sleep again.’

I ended up falling asleep again and not having another vision of either the old lady or the ghostly lady. However, I woke up probably every half hour to hour sweating despite hardly any covers and a fan blowing directly on me. Great sleep was not achieved either night. The only thing I can wonder is, what has attached itself to me?
