Recently I have been having reoccurring dreams where I "wake up" and I can't move or talk or sometimes open my eyes. I always have this feeling that something or someone Is there watching me.
I remember specifically on one night when I was about 8. I had just fallen asleep and I thought I had been awake. I remember getting up but when I looked back at my bed I saw my own body just lying there not even breathing. I started panicking and I turned around and this cloaked figure in front of me. I fell back and tried to scream but nothing came out. It just stood there. Emotionless, just staring at me. Next thing I knew I woke up shaking and sobbing, while my mother hugged me. This dream would reoccur for about 3 years and every single night I would wake up at 3:00 AM every night looking at my door. The night it stopped was when I had the same dream but I reached out and tried to touch it's face but as soon as I grasped it, it disappeared. I started to scream and this time I could actually make noise.
I am now 15 and I just began having the dreams again. I moved about 3 months ago across the US. During the whole trip I just felt uneasy and I even thought I had seen the cloaked figure. I just shrugged it off but still got that terrifying feeling like I did when I was eight. I'm unsure about what this dream means bit I've read a bit on this hooded figure and realized that many others seem to have this strange figure in their dreams.
If any one really understands why I'm having these terrifying dreams please help me. I can't stand it anymore. I barely get sleep because I'm so afraid of it appearing again.
