Waking up with weird cuts, bruises and marks my whole life./u/Kiznish

I just want to preface this by saying that despite enjoying this sub and reading all of your posts, I wouldn’t call myself a staunch believer in the paranormal etc so to speak. So by sharing this ’interesting’ little story that doesn’t mean I’m reaching any particular explanation, such as claiming to have been abducted by aliens or attacked by ghosts or anything like that to get people hyped up. Ill let you all decide that. I just wanted to share as it seems to fit here and others may be able to chime in with their own experiences and opinions.

Anyway, I’ll try (and fail) to keep this short(ish)

For as long as I can remember, with frequent regularity, I have awakened from my sleep with strange marks on my body. Cuts, scratches, what appears to be temporary “birth marks” and the like. I’ve noticed either sharing a bed, or sleeping alone makes no difference to whether these occurrences happen or not so this only introduces more variables. It’s also worth noting that partners I’ve shared a bed with have commented on how still I sleep. I am not a “mover” whilst I sleep and dream so self injury seems slightly less likely if you take their word on it.

One such “birth mark” is/was a star shaped mark on my left bicep. This, the only (that I know of) permanent mark appeared out of nowhere years ago and looked like a literal five pointed star. Perfectly shaped, like a tattoo. I used to show people as it was a strange little quirk. Unfortunately, due to gaining healthy muscle mass over the last couple of years it’s now distorted in shape and doesn’t really look like anything in particular. I regret not taking more care to take photos and document this but quite honestly, being the “skeptic” I am I never paid much attention and shrugged it off as most would.

Well fast forward to today, I woke up with what can only be described as a blood sampling needle mark on my right arm, in the exact area I have blood taken on my inside elbow. I’ve had many blood tests in my life for medical reasons and so I’m acutely aware of the particular “tiny slit” like injury those types of needles cause, as opposed to the far less intrusive ones used to GIVE medication through. This “injury” is even scarring in the same way as a blood test mark. It matches one I have on the left arm from a few weeks ago. I’m probably not explaining well but I cannot think of anything else that would cause this very particular cut in that very specific place. Weird.

So yeah that’s pretty much it, I just woke up today, saw this and thought it would be fun to write a post and share and discuss these likely harmless but interesting things that happen to me, and apparently others as well. Lots of other little bits have happened but nothing worth extending this post even more for haha.

Thanks for reading.
