Sleep Disorder or Ghosts?

Posted on July 31, 2010

Okay, it’s been a while since I posted anything and this is really more of a question than a story. I have had experiences with what would seem to be ghosts and have definitely had experiences with demons, but this is a whole different thing. Has anyone ever heard of a sleep disorder that makes you hallucinate?

For as long as I can remember I have had “people” “visit” me at night. I wake up and there will be someone standing by my bed, hovering above my bed, or watching me from a doorway. They usually don’t make any noise, but I do remember one particular time I awoke to a girl with long hair yelling “Wake up” while leaning over me.

Some of the funnier visitors I have had include a man in camouflage hovering near the ceiling in one corner of my room, several small hooded “little people” sitting on my bed, a green man running across my bed, and my personal favorite, what appeared to be a monk in a brown cowl/robe(?) showing me the food in his mouth while staring at me from my bathroom!

I have what I assume is RLS because I rub holes in my sheets from moving my feet so much in my sleep and I also talk in my sleep. I am always waking my husband up telling him there is a spider or snake in the bed, or that someone is in the house! I even woke up a few months ago beating my husband with my fists asking him “Why are you in my bed!”

But after these experiences, which are obviously dreams, I always come around quickly and realize I was dreaming. It really doesn’t seem like that, though, when I see my “visitors”.

So, what do YOU think?

    Wendy, I’ve had RLS since I was a child, some 40 years. I can’t sleep when it is acting up, If I’m asleep and it starts, I wake up, Sometimes in the middle of the night I get into a hot tub of water to releave it for a while.

    I guess what I’m trying to say is maybe RLS is not the reason for the holes in the sheets, Maybe you move a lot when having bad dreams like my husband does, and he gets really wild sometimes and I have to wake him up.

    Thats all I’ve got, but, wish you well, and good luck.

      Thanks Martha, I have a friend who says if she saw the things i did she would have holes in her sheets too… from running! LOL I dont sleep very sound because of all the excess movement’ of course my legs are in motion even when i am awake, I just cant keep still! :)

    • trolldoll says:

      martha i have it too. and getting into a tub of hot water does help. i take a medication to help me sleep but before it does it gives me the rls. then i fall asleep, no problem. creeping leg syndrome, is a strange disorder!

  4. Pat says:

    Maybe try going to a sleep center or doctor to see if they can prescribe medication to stop this behavior… sleep deprivation is serious… good luck!

    • wendy rathburn (mama22bratz) says:

      ok, im not on drugs so rehab is not gonna help lol and its not as if i sit and have conversations with these people, they are just there for a split-second and then gone. That’s why i wonder about some sort of sleep disorder. Thanks for making me feel nuts though,JK Lol … and to think…i assumed it would be Big Barney that would jump to the conclusion that i was high or crazy! :)

      Ok, you are not crazy at all. I have lived in this house for almost 6 years now. I have seen ghost, snakes and what looks like clouds floating around the house at night. I see shadows often. I have NEVER believed in ghost but I do now! Everything that happened before I actually saw the first one about a month ago, I made reasons for the happenings. My daughter yelled out one night around 1:ooam and said ther was someone standing in my door. I made my husband check the house, closets ect. Nothing there, I said you must have been dreaming. About a year later, I woke up and told my husband to get up someone was in our house. He was standing beside our bed. My husband got up and checked everything again I said I must have been dreaming. One night my husband was away and at 2;30 my bedroom light came on by itself. Passed that off to maybe not having the switch all the way down. I saw snakes in my closet and Yelled and screamed. It was daytime bUT my room is very dark. I had 3 men in my room looking for snakes and they never found one. I saw 3. I passed thta off as them getting into the attic because I screamed and scared them away. Well about 3 or 4 weeks later I was asleep and turned over in bed and just happen to open my eyes a saw 2 ghost standing in my door. Now this was most definatley a ghost. A lady with a old timey dress it was big and full. She looked to be from the 18th century. She floated right past my door. Then what looked like a man but all I could see was his skelton. I yelled mark look look at the door and by the time he sat up and said what???? It was gone. I see them floating down the hall at night now and I have seen what looks like snakes climbing the wall. I want to move so bad!!!!

    i have a question about my sleep disorder and i think there is a ghost in my house. My mom,dad and i ave had dreams about this girl wearing a long white dress but in my dream it was a teenage girl standing by my moms bed getting closer and closer to me and then i woke up when she touched me, in my dads dream it was a little girl and in my moms dream it was a grown woman. I keep waking up at 4:00 in the morning and this started when the movie “the fourth kind” came out and everytime i would wake up they would put the movie trailer on. At first i didnt pay attention to it but it stopped for a while and ive been waking up at 4:00 am this whole week now, its scaring me i talked to my parents about it and my mom is worried, im just 15 years old and my dad says its because i like watching scary movies, but i dont think its because of that. Can someone please tell me if this is normal im really worried i barely sleep now im only getting like 3 hours of sleep lately and everybody asks me why i look so tired. What can i do about my sleep disorder? were moving out of this house soon i seriously cannot live here anymore we keep hearing stuff and i see things at night and one day i was laying on my bed and my brothers bedroom door just slammed open and he wasnt there, i cant concentrate in school because i barely get any sleep my parents have to sleep with their door open because im so terrified and i know im old enough to sleep by myself but sometimes i have to sleep with my mom in order to get some sleep. Has this happened to anyone? is it just me?
