Suffered Extreme Fear... Just A Product Of My Imagination?

If it doesn't happen again, it could have been "just one of those things." We all get the heebie-jeebies sometimes. Your mind plays tricks on you or you just get tired and the barriers between you and your fears get a bit worn down, and suddenly there you are, in the midst of this fear that has no rational basis, when really it's just those same fears and concerns you always had but usually deal with. I notice this was posted at 4:41am. Were you really tired when it happened? That could have a lot to do with it.



How did this all turn out? I assume the feeling went away, so how did it go away, and how are you now?


Yes, I was pretty tired at the time. I had been up for quite a while, and I was planning on going to bed within an hour.

At the time, the feeling was very overwhelming, so I left the room and sat in a chair. I did this so that my back would be up against something. However, even then, the feeling was still there to an extent. The fear subsided around a minute after I had sat down.

Seems strange to me that it would happen out of the blue.. but the human body is a strange thing.


Well, one of the things that I was reading up on was waking up while your body is still paralyzed from REM sleep. This caused me to recall a specific instance where this happened to me. Most people experience it at least once in their lifetime. You can't move, you have some difficulty breathing, and you hear extremely loud noises around you.

This was the last thing that went through my mind before the episode of fear set in. I don't scare easily, so it's hard for me to believe that this could have triggered it.

When all of a sudden, I felt an instant feel of panic come over me, my chest felt tight, and my breathing got really frantic. I threw off my seatbelt, not knowing what to do, when the feeling quickly subsided. I was panicking when I was feeling this, because I had no idea, what the Hell was going on. When I told a few people about it, they told me it was more than likely just an anxiety attack. Scared the crap out of me, that's all I know. Never happened again. Yet


This was what I thought about immediately after the fear subsided.

I had read about panic and anxiety attacks before, and it sounded similar to one. However, I'm not sure if it was this, since putting my back up against the wall seemed to ease the fear to a degree.

Perhaps, as Knapp said, the fact that I was tired had something to do with it. At the time of the event, I had been up for a long time.

Sounds alot like anxiety attack too. My cousin get them. His got so bad at one point that he was afraid to leave the house. He did not go out his house for about 6 months. His therapist had to make house calls. He got better but still has a few attacks every year.
You could think of government workers like teenagers. You pay them an allowance, but do you get any work out them? They eat the food, put their feet on the furniture and complain loudly whenever they are unhappy.

Maybe it was a ghost? How long have you lived at that residence? Any other unusual or possibly paranormal occurences there?

I've never had any medical problems whatsoever, completely healthy. Hopefully I will remain this way, and this will turn out to not be a precursor to a bigger problem. Your cousin's case was obviously very severe. I can't imagine not wanting to leave the house for six month.

Thought about it, but didn't give it a whole lot of consideration. Although, this does bring up an interesting fact that I should share with you. Now I'm not insinuating that ghosts are real nor am I saying that they aren't.

However, there are events that have occurred that I haven't been able to explain. Things such as scissors being thrown at you when nobody else is in the house, seeing clear cut shadows of people walking by when in all actuality, nobody is there. There was also an interesting incident with a vase that was found buried in the yard, we brought it in and it would constantly shake and fall off of the table. We eventually threw it away, but it kept showing back up on the table, no matter how many times we tried to get rid of it. The vase incident could have been someone playing a joke, though, so I don't completely believe in it.

Interestingly enough, the site where my house is now used to be a graveyard. In the 1890's, the headstones and church were removed, but they didn't bother with any excavation. So, basically, they just built our house on top of a graveyard, just like in the movie Poltergeist.

It is extremely weird, as you can actually see graveyard style mist rising from the ground in the early hours of the morning.

Yep, me too. Hopefully Casper is one of them. No seriously, I didn't know all of that, when you first posted. But having scissors being thrown at you, when no one is there. Holy Crap, I would call Ghostbusters immediately.

Schizophrenia (from the Greek word σχιζοφρένεια, or schizophreneia, meaning "split mind") is a psychiatric diagnosis that describes a mental disorder characterized by impairments in the perception or expression of reality, most commonly manifest as auditory hallucinations and paranoid or bizarre delusions
