One evening, I felt abnormally exhausted and went to sleep earlier than usual. I was so tired that I remember thinking to myself "I'll be asleep in no time at all." I turned over, and right in the second between being awake and falling asleep, I heard a voice in my ear whisper my own name. It was long and drawn out, and the voice was so close I could feel the hot breath on my ear. It jolted me wide awake and I was unable to move my body. I started screaming for my boyfriend in the other room... It felt like I was yelling at the top of my lungs, but he never came into the room. I waited a minute in panic, and shortly my movement and hearing came back, and I could hear my boyfriend typing and the tv on low in the room over. I realized that even though I felt like I was screaming, I wasn't making a sound at all, because he certainly would have heard me. I confirmed with him in the morning; he hadn't heard a sound. The strangest part about the experience was that I could SWEAR the voice that whispered to me was my boyfriend's. I know he wasn't in the room and I can't understand why I would hear his voice.
Exactly a week later, I was feeling unusually tired again, and went to bed early. I fell asleep quickly and was awoken by a very tall man in a suit jacket (he had his back to me) standing in front of my bedroom door. For some reason I called out my boyfriend's name, and the man started to turn towards me. As he turned, he morphed into my boyfriend. I said his name again. He turned away from me and disappeared as he placed his hand on the doorknob. I sat in the dark for a while, contemplating what I'd just seen. I wasn't afraid and fell back asleep easily.
These two incidences occurred about a month ago. Just last night, I was overly tired again, and went to sleep early. I was in the middle of a dream where I was speaking to my boyfriend who was sitting on the dresser across from me, when I was awoken by my frantic boyfriend asking me "what's wrong? Are you okay?" from the bedroom doorway. When my real boyfriend woke me up, I was very disoriented, and told him I was fine. I asked him why he had burst into the room like that. He told me that while he was sitting in the living room, he heard a terrifying voice in a low growl coming from the bedroom. The voice was low toned but very loud. It frightened him so much that he ran to the room (he said the voice kept saying inaudible things until he opened the door) and saw me, sitting upright in bed, talking to the dresser. When he asked me what was wrong, I layed back down, then I actually woke up, which was the part I remembered. I have no memory of the voice and only remember the dream I was having of my boyfriend talking to me.
I have never had experiences like this before. I am starting to be very frightened of what happens to me when I sleep. I have lived in this apartment for 2 years and it was a new construction. If anyone has any insight into these happenings, please share with me.
