Last night I had a really bad one. I sleep with my bedside lamp on because I'm still afraid of the dark (gee, I wonder why?) so my room was completely light when it happened. I could hear people talking and I had this feeling of slaves being kept by a group of people or machines and there was something about not enough oxygen. Suddenly I had this overwhelming feeling of a knife coming out and slicing off the top of everyone's head. I saw a giant blade of light swing through my room and cut through the top of the pictures on my mirror and I bolted.
The next thing I know I'm in the living room, the kitchen light is on and my dad is telling me to turn it off and go back to bed. He tells me I'm having a panic attack or something and I'm fine, not realizing that I'm not fully awake. "No, it's real," I say involuntarily and slowly my body comes back to me and I regain control of my limbs and my speech. My hands are tingling and my throat feels tight and even though I'm awake now I can't shake the feeling that there's something in the room with me.
More and more I seem to be having night terrors about knives and beams of light. I had a really scary shadow person one about a year ago, but so far it's mostly been stabbity stab. I think the scariest part for me is not remembering how I made it from my room to the living room. All the other times I remember exactly what I did.
