Experience description:     

That night just before I laid down, I had prayed for forgiveness and thanked God. I hadn't prayed in a long time. earlier that evening I had been crying, and told someone I wished I was dead.

I had just gone to sleep and felt pain in chest, couldn't move or call out. I thought I had got out of bed and down steps to wake a friend and get help.  I was scared.  The room looked ordinary.  Then I realized that I was floating not walking. I floated into my friend's room, tried to wake him and ask for help, but couldn't speak. I was very frightened.  Then I was back in the bedroom.  I felt I had to force my body out of the bed, it felt difficult.

After this happened I walked down to my friends room and tried to tell him what happened. I was scared. I was scared to go back to bed but eventually I went back to sleep.
