I know this sounds funny, but it really was not funny at all when all of this was going on.
I was literally scared of my own shadow.
I was grown and had 3 small children.
They slept with me on the 2 sofas in the den until my husband would get home from work at night.
My husband went to school from 9:00 am until 12:00 noon, then he would come home to eat and leave at 2:00 PM to go to work. He would work from 3:00 PM until 11:00 PM and it would take him close to 40 minutes to get home. As you can see he was hardly home at all, and to make matters worse we lived way out in the country with no street lights or people close enough to hear you if you needed help.
One night as we were lying in the bed sleeping, I started having this seizure like thing that I had had before. I would have this growling in my throat, and it felt as if my body would be swaying back and forth, my legs going back towards the back of my head and then back down straight, then back up again, over and over. It was very frightening. There would also be a tingling in my head and I would feel as though my body was also shaking like someone having an epileptic seizure. After these seizure like things would happen, my body would just lie there and I would try to talk, but could not, nor could I move for what seemed like forever. When I could finally move and talk, this one night in particular, I tried to get my husbands' attention but he would not move or answer me. These seizures would happen over and over some nights and I was scared to go back to sleep.
This one particular night I finally got my husband's attention and told him to turn on the lamp. I had a really hard time trying to wake him to do this. At this time in my life, I did a lot of cursing and I used some of these words as well as some yelling to get his attention to turn on the light. I also begged him to hold me but he wouldn't, so I just snuggled up to him the rest of the night.
I remember when I was trying to wake him that night thinking, the devil is here to get me and my husband is in co-hoots with him and he is just going to let him get me. I thought this was the night I was surely going to die.
Finally, the next morning came and my husband asked, "Who turned on the light," as the lamp was still on. I told him that he had turned it on, and he just refused to believe that he had done this.
That day I talked, with my mother, who not only talked the talk about God but walked the walk. After telling her of my experience again, as I had told her of the others also, she said, "Well maybe you are possessed!"
"What?" I questioned, "Mama you have scared me to death." After hanging up, I cried and prayed to God that if I was demon possessed that He would deliver me from these demons.
After a while, probably a few days, I began to have this horrible taste and smell come out of me when I would burp. It was like something had died in me.
I found out that I had gallstones and I had to have my gall bladder taken out.
There is no other way to say this so here goes, after having my gall bladder removed, it seemed that everything began to go away. No more of these horrible seizures, if that is what they were, and no more horrible taste or smell coming up in my mouth.
Now, do I believe that the demon or demons had died in me and were harbored in my gall bladder until it was taken out? This is a question that pondered around in my brain for a while, but, I now believe this is possibly how God answered my prayer.
