A mum has revealed she sometimes feels too terrified to leave her house for fear of getting abducted by aliens, following a bizarre encounter when she was on holiday.
Sacha Christie, 51, said she first saw what she believes was a UFO when she was just seven years old, and has since had nine major sightings.
Sacha, from Liverpool, Merseyside, recalled how scared she felt after seeing a spacecraft in the sky while on a trip with her family in 1997, saying a strange figure alien ran past her.
She said: “Myself, my ex-partner Steve, my son Louie and two of three of Steve’s family members went on a short break to a small remote cottage.
She said: “At one point Steve was pointing at these fluorescent lights in the sky that seemed to be getting bigger the closer they moved towards us.
“As the clouds were so low, the shadows and shape of UFO made it look like bright rippling jellyfish in the sky.
“Everyone had come out to look at this point, the kids were feeling a bit nervous and the sheep in the field next to us had all eerily laid down.
Sacha added: “Louie had told me that something had touched his foot and I believed him, but I wanted to look at the lights more, to understand what was going on.
“I stood there for another minute or so, when I suddenly heard something running barefoot in the mud behind me.
“All of a sudden, it bumped into me as it ran past and my chest exploded.
“Before I even realised it was happening, I was running back to the house in a panic, in complete hysterical blindness, I couldn’t see where I was going.
“I just knew I needed to run.”
The UFO sightings have left Sacha feeling hugely shaken, as she sometimes feels too terrified to leave her house and now suffers with post-traumatic stress disorder.
She explained: “I used to feel safe before but seeing the UFOs so close up has removed the bubble I used to live in.
“I feel like there’s nothing in between the top of my head and space.
“My head feels like I am in space.
“The idea of us being contained in something has now completely gone.
“This leaves me with anxiety and I get worked up every time I need to leave the house. I am OK once I leave the house but it is getting out of the house that is a problem.
“I think the anxiety stems from the holiday in Wales in 1997. I now hate February, it’s a bad month for me.
“I try to stay in as much as I can during that month because I suffer with severe anxiety.”
Sacha said she can’t be sure ‘where most UFOs frequent’, but that it often feels like they’re ‘always somewhere near’ her.
“I would be a millionaire if I knew why only certain people see UFOs but I think it has happened to me as I look in the sky a lot,” she said.
“I wish they would stop.”
The mum attends annual UFO conventions, which she claims have helped her come to terms with her experiences.
“It’s very hard to explain my encounters, as it’s hard for me to believe what I’ve seen,” she continued.
“I’ve spent my whole life trying to think of other scenarios, of things that it could be, but the only conclusion is that it’s other life forms and UFOS.
“Looking at the sky, it scares me, as I don’t know what I’m going to see next. But I can’t help but check the sky when I go out as it is just a habit now.
“It’s like I have to make sure nothing is going to fall on my head.”
