Brian C's Experience

Experience description:   

Back in 1990's I desperately wanted my friend (Edward) to go with my family to our home town in Leyte.  The night before our travel, I had a dream that I walked to my friend's side of the house and inside his room (cannot recall if I opened the door).  I then saw him sleeping and vigorously shook his legs and told him to wake up since we are about to leave (I though he was going with us).  Then he woke up and said "Didn't I tell you I wasn't going".  Then I looked at him and realized that he did.  Then I woke up.  I felt very drained and tired that I can hardly get up.  I was so weak that I had a difficult time taking a shower.  Then my family and I went to Leyte for 2 months of vacation.  When I came back, my brother told me that my friend (Edward) had a scary experience with me as a ghost.  I confirmed the story with my Edward, even confirming that I was shaking his leg and everything that happened.  He said that after he told me that he wasn't coming,  I just disappeared and I scared the hell out of him.   

It was the only episode that I had and hope I don't have another one cause the feeling of being drained was not good.
