I am not reporting an actual sighting, but more of an
abduction, I guess. I was at a friend's house till about
11:30pm on Saturday (Sep 4, 2010). Me and my family got
home about 11:30ish, put the kids to bed and my husband
went to bed too. I decided I wanted to stay up and watch
some TV in the living room. Well I must of fallen asleep,
I awoke suddenly to a paralyzed feeling on the couch. I
then saw red, green lights out of the corner of my eye and
felt as if someone was in my living room. Then all of a
sudden I felt I was being led down some kind of corridor,
with something holding my hand - it felt cold and clammy.
Also I could hear something telling me in my head not to
be afraid. I then remember asking why they were doing
this, and the response, in a weird sounding voice, was,
"we have to do this". I then remember laying on a flat
table and something telling me don't be afraid. I then
remember asking someone to hold my hand, and something
did. I then asked if it would hurt and they said just a
little but I would not remember it. Then I remember seeing
a big instrument of some kind coming down to my face then
I started freaking out but couldn't move. Then I awoke all
of a sudden on the couch feeling very weirded out, and it
was 5am in the morning. I never sleep that long if I'm on
the couch, it was almost like I was missing a few hours.
When I got up in the morning finally, I jokingly said to
my husband that aliens took me during the night. He just
laughed it off. I went to the bathroom and noticed my
lounge pants were on backwards. Well the next couple of
days after I felt like I'd been run over by a truck, and
my legs felt very sore, and extremely tired and fatigued.
I tried looking for any evidence of any cuts etc, but I
saw nothing. I can't stop thinking about it, I feel like
I'm going crazy even thinking it happened. I do suffer
from sleep paralysis once in a while, but this has never
happened. I am a believer of aliens living out there
somewhere, but did this really happen to me or was it just
a dream? I can't talk to my husband about it cause he
might think I'm going crazy lol. I do not recollect seeing
the faces of the beings, just the touch of the skin and
how it felt. What do you think about this? I think about
it all day long since it happened a week ago.
UFO*BC Response #1:
I don't know what you
Some of what you
describe could be attributable to sleep paralysis. Of
course, your account does seem to match the typical
narrative of an "alien abduction".
Note that the mind can
experience very vivid and realistic experiences as a
result of sleep paralysis and other sleep disorders
and dream phenomena such as lucid dreaming.
The parts which I see
as resembling a sleep paralysis episode are that you
feel asleep in a place where you normally don't sleep
(the sofa) which would interrupt your normal sleep
cycle. Note that people can have sleep paralysis if
they are having trouble falling asleep. Some people
experience visual and auditory hallucinations during
sleep paralysis (the lights as an example). Sleep
paralysis is almost always accompanied by a perception
of a presence in the room.
Is it possible that
your perception of the cold hands, the message in your
mind and the big instrument in your face was just a
dream? I don't know. I was not there.
The one detail which
seems most abnormal was that you noticed that your
lounge pants were on backwards - but is it possible
that you were tired and sleepy when you changed into
I suppose it is
possible that you were "abducted" but I can't conclude
that from what you are telling us. You indicate that
you have experienced sleep paralysis before so it is
at least possible that this is another episode which
is just a bit overloaded with other "abduction like"
narrative. Perhaps it is just your mind repeating
fragments from movies and TV you have seen or books
you have read.
Your description of the
instrument in front of your face reminds me of a scene
from "Fire in the sky". Have you watched that movie or
read Travis Walton's book?
I don't know if other
members of UFOBC have read your experience but I
thought you were looking for some feedback.
UFO*BC Response #2:
Gord has made some good
observations and suggestions. At this point I can't
say whether your experience was real or not. Could you
provide the exact date and approximate geographical
location of the incident? In case we get any UFO
reports from that area.
Please keep us posted
if anything else unusual occurs or if you recover any
