I am writing this note after much anguish and deliberation. I am not one to believe in this sort of thing, but the night of June 19 changed my life forever. I was driving down a road in the county coming home from a late night at work, when I thought I saw some lights over the trees in the distance. I did not think too much about it, because I knew I was near the airport. So I drove on for about 2 more miles, listening to my scanner. Suddenly the channels started changing rapidly and the damn thing went nuts. Static, squeals, etc... I was about to reach down and turn the thing off when the engine on my van quit. The lights went out, and I rolled to a stop on the side of the road. I tried and tried but the van would not start. I sat there for a moment, I got out my wireless phone, but it would not work, no signal nothing. I was getting a bit pissed. That is when I felt like I was being watched. Every hair left on my head stood straight up. Like when a baloon is rubbed on your head. I heard a really loud noise, then nothing. The van started, the scanner started too. I had no idea what had happened, but I was tired and decided to go on home. When I got home, all the lights were out. I went in and asked my wife why she went to bed so early. She said 'Early? It's 12:30!'. Well I nearly fell over. I checked my watch and it said 10:45! I got really concerned that I had blacked out or something, but I have no history of this. Then I started thinking maybe I was abducted by aliens! Then I thought I must be nuts! I have struggled with this incident for a couple of weeks. I cannot sleep, I cannot eat, I have strange dreams. I feel like I am losing my mind, So at the sueggestion of a friend, I decided to write you guys instead of just putting a bullet in my head. I cannot figure out what happened to those two hours. They are just gone..... I am not nuts, or on medications, but I feel like I am getting worse everyday... Please help! You can call me at work toll free if you like. 1-800-((number deleted))
