It's been a while quite a few years I think... It happens when it wants to, there were some nights where it'd happen more than once, days at a time continuously, others where it'd happen say once a week or every few weeks.
I'm in bed. It happens either when I'm already awake and can't sleep, or when I wake up. It has happened once or twice before in other places e.g. In my parents' bed, in my brother's room, in the living room on the floor and/or sofa, matresses at other places, but mainly in my room.
My body starts to vibrate, it feels as though it's happening internally... The vibrations eventually dissolve, it feels as though I'm almost dissolving into my bed, or into whatever I'm on.
I'm not in my body anymore. I'm floating. Most of the time it's scary, and beyond my control. Sometimes it's as though I'm being controlled by something, or someone. Sometimes I'm floating and soaring at frighteningly fast speeds, and I just want to stop, but I can't.
When it's over, it's almost like I crash into my body again, and I get a shock. It's not any sort of a dream or a nightmare, it's real. I don't know what it is...
I've tried to research but I haven't yet come across many similar stories to this: (All that keeps coming up is the terminology Out of body experiences but because nothing has really been similar to my experiences, I'm starting to wonder if maybe it's something else? I don't know.
When I talk to my family about it, they merely suggest that I am possessed. They also say that if I speak to a professional person about it, I'll be put straight into a mental institute.
I don't know what to do, these experiences aren't pleasant to me, and they scare me. I suppose, in a way, I wanted to talk to someone with a similar experience to mine, and see what they think/ feel about it, and maybe how they deal with it (if they do)
