Bad Sleep

I am a professional man and I have a true scary story to tell.  I have trouble sleeping, so I decided to try out these youtube videos that are supposed to help you get a good nights sleep.  They are mostly twirling circles of light and calming sounds.  Some have an additional benefit built in like happiness, or making money or losing weight.  All sorts of things are promised.  The science or more truthfully the pseudoscience of these claims explains that these sounds are supposed to target a point in your subconscious mind or something like that.  I didn’t buy the idea but did think the calming sounds might help me sleep through the night.  First time I tried it, the video seemingly worked well.  I slept through the night and awoke fresh and ready for my day.  The next time I decided to try one of the suggestive videos.  It promised more confidence.  Right from the beginning I thought something was off about this video, but decided to give it a try anyway.  As I slept, I began to have very vivid dreams.  I was dreaming that someone entered my condo through the patio door.  Later I was able to determine the intruder was an old woman.  She was doing very random things.  She would eat chips from the pantry and drank a glass of orange juice.  she used the bathroom and then walked into my bedroom while I was still asleep.  She stood there at my bed and watched me sleep for minutes before walking out of the house.  All of this happened in my dream while I was still sleeping in my bed.  I was sort of up in the corner of my bedroom watching this woman watching me sleep.  I remember thinking I hope she doesn’t pull out a knife or something crazy like that.  I knew I was dreaming but still was relieved when she finally left.  Here is the crazy part.  When I woke up the following morning, I found the bag of chips on my kitchen counter and a used glass of orange juice by the sink.  I knew for a fact I did not do this.  My heart sank, but it gets creepier.  I went to the glass patio door that the old lady entered through in my dream.  I expected to see it open or at least unlocked.  It was still locked, and from the inside.  Nobody could have left the condo and locked the doors unless they were still inside.  Needless to say I checked the entire place and found no one, but someone had been in my condo.  When I went back and looked for the video I had watched on youtube it was gone, or at least I could not find it again.  Now I never leave youtube on while I sleep.  In case you are wondering I now have even more difficulty sleeping.
