"As I was walking up the stair, I met a man that wasn't there. He wasn't there again today. I wish, I wish he'd go away." <- describes my current problem with nightmares. Seriously...I wish I'd stop dreaming about this person I've never met/seen...I keep waking up with scratches and bruises that I have no way of getting while I'm sleeping. >_<
I know your house is haunted, could it be that? or you could be doing it in your sleep...or possibly sleep walking. 0_o (just a thought).
the scratches on my back, however, I'm just clueless about. XP
I hope your ribs feel better soon. =)
