This happened to me about 3 years ago. I suffer from insomnia. Even as a child I had a hard a time sleeping.
Nowadays I take trazadone. It helps. I can't take Ambien or drugs of that ilk. If I do I sleep walk like crazy.
I have actually woken up when I was sleep walking. I was very confused. So was my brother when I walked into his bedroom. LOL. He had seen sleep walk before so he knew the deal.
Ambien and drugs like that are strange. Google it.
One night, i just couldn't sleep. I took 3 trazadones Still couldn't sleep. I took 2 hydroxazines. Hydroxazine is like the baby aspirin of mental health.
Middle of the night; I decided to take a walk.
I got down the street and I came up on this bus stop. There is something in the darkness. I took out my phone and turned on the light.
AND THE POSSUM CAME AT ME!. It was like a cross between a cat and a possum. It was "trotting" up to me. I yelled. Wild animals are wild. I thought it must be sick.
I was like "whoa! whoa!". I was backing up. I thought I was about to get attacked by a wild animal.
Then it vanished. Right as it got up to me it just disappeared.
I am glad of that because well, who wants to get attacked by a possum?
Do you want to get attacked by a possum? Yes or no?
The correct answer is "no" for those who are possum impaired.
Bottom line is this: I expected to see an animal when I turned on my light and I did.
You know what was actually there? A bag of trash.
