I have spent a great deal of time talking to a woman named Diane who has an extraordinary life of odd lost time experiences. Starting in her early childhood this woman has had lost time events in which she believes she has been taken by nonhuman beings who would experiment, or examine her for reasons none of us understand. She feels that sharing her lifelong encounters and extreme experiences will help bring others like her to the forefront in hopes of finding answers and closure to these events.
Diane’s life is not glamorous or filled with elaborate adventures of aliens who leave her with meaningful messages that will benefit mankind. This woman’s story is simple and startling. It is a straightforward account of how her life has been interfered with. She does not seek glory or fame and does not want or need attention. She has a full life and love in spite of these intrusions.
I have known Diane for many years. It took her a very long time to come to the conclusion she wanted to tell her story. I agreed to write about her story as she tells it to me without any long colorful added fluff. With that said let’s start at the beginning
Diane knew her life was a bit different from a very early age. She explains that she does not have a smooth linked recall of her childhood. She does know it was not like other children’s. The earliest event she recalls were when she was age three or four. It was a memory of being placed back. Diane explained to me what she could recall:
“That is the best way I can explain it. I was very young under age 5 when I recall being placed back on the ground. I had been playing in my yard.. All I can remember is the sensation of being placed down. I can remember looking up at a funnel or tunnel but do not know what I was looking at I recall the pounding if my heart and being very frightened.”
Diane continued to tell me about her childhood
“The memories of my life that I am fully aware of began when I was about five or six years old. My family lived in a big old house located in Huntington, New York on Long Island. I was on a street of big old houses filled with lots of children. I was a happy little kid. I played all day, went to kindergarten and lived the typical life of a little kid until nighttime.
Bedtime during this time in my life was hell. My parents talked about it being night terrors, and were determined to simply wait it out until I out grew it. I knew it was a far bigger problem, but at age five, all you have is your family to depend on. If they think nothing is wrong, there is little a small child can do, but wait it out!
It would start once the house was silent and my family asleep. I would wake up to bright neon ticket tape symbols crossing the border of my room where the ceiling and wall meet. This display would play bright colored letters, numbers and images of toys and childlike interests, bikes, games etc. After a few minutes the symbols would start. Odd shaped lines and writing which looked very ancient. I did not know what they were or why I was seeing them. This would go on, around all four walls of my room, until it changed over to events. I would then see war like scenes, pictures of the earth, frightening things. At this point I would jump out of my bed and go screaming in terror in to my parent’s room.
I would chalk all of this up to child hood nightmares or night terrors except for one thing. It went on every single night, until I was seven. This went on for years with the same exact events the same images, in the same exact way night after night.
My parents took me to a doctor. He told them I was fine and just a bright child with an active imagination. I was becoming exhausted from lack of sleep and confused at this bizarre nightly routine. My parents decided I would sooner or later outgrow it.
By the time I was in second grade I was able to express myself a great deal better. A change in my nightly horror was developing as well. Now, when I went to sleep at night I would only see a few recurring images on my walls however I now had weekly recurring dreams of many people I loved dying along with a display of world events that later during my life would come to pass. It was better than before but still very disturbing as my nights continued to be a time of turmoil, exhaustion and screaming for my family during the long terrifying hours of my bedtime. In time as I aged the dreams did decrease.
The next few years must have been uneventful, as I do not remember much about them. The only thing I can recall is this is the time period when I started to understand if a person was good or evil by one glance. I would tell my mother daily who the good and bad people were around us. My mother found this odd on one hand but later I found out she also paid close attention to the warnings of her strange little girl.
I was 10 when things picked up for me paranormal wise. I was older and allowed more freedom. The kids in my neighborhood would go out and play every chance they could. Sometimes they would play for hours only returning when their mothers called them for dinner. Often my friends and I would pack a lunch on a summer’s day and leave in the morning on our bikes and not return till dinnertime. We rowed our small rowboats in the nearby bay, fished, swam, played ball in the fields, or explored the woods. It was a great life. I was just a regular kid having a wonderful time except for the lost time issues and pain problems.
At age ten I started to realize that I would get home at days end much later than I thought. I kept arriving home at dinnertime at 6P.M. when I thought it was only about 3P.M. in the afternoon. I would be off by hours to what time of day I thought it was. I had a watch, which really confused me as often, not always, but a few times a month; I would head home in early afternoon but arrive home at 6pm. I kept telling my mother that I would head towards home earlier but she would only accuse me of being irresponsible, playing too long and yell at me. I knew I left for home, a 5-minute bike ride, much earlier yet not get there till dinnertime. I had no explanation other than the fact I was 10 years old!
Having raised children of my own, I now know the next memory I have of this time in my life is extremely odd. I would notice during the days I got home late, that I would also end up laying on the living room floor, after dinner, crying about the severe pain in my back and legs. I can recall the pain like it was yesterday. It was just awful. I would beg my mother to do something. She would give me a aspirin and fix me a hot tub to soak in. I would go through this until I was about 12. My parents told me it was growing pains. I remember asking my best pal George one day how he tolerated those growing pains? He looked at me blankly and said, “What are growing pains?” When I reported this response to my parents they responded by giving me more milk and cheese and making me go to bed earlier. The leg and back pain continued along with my coming home late and confused about the missing time lasted until I was 11.
I wonder about those years and wish I understood more of what was happening around and to me. I know my 12th year was calm and rather pain free. I was becoming a young woman and things would soon change on many levels as I entered into a new phase of life. This also was a turning point for me not only from child to young woman but also an increase with my lifetime involvement with odd lost time events.”
Diane told me that now as an adult woman who raised a family of her own she realizes that whenever a child tells you something is happening it is imperative to listen to and investigate what the child is telling you and to never simply disregard it .If a child complains of pain or has strange marks or bruises do not dismiss or ignore them. Mostly and foremost if anyone you love, especially a child, loses time do not dismiss it. Do all you can to find out what is happening to them during those lost hours? It may be the most important thing you could ever do for that person.
Diane’s life continued as any other normal teen with the exception of four or five episodes of lost time experiences followed by illness and physical signs of harm to her body occurring during the events. She told me she would know when a lost time event was going to take place as she would see either a ray of light or become surrounded in bright blinding light. Diane’s lost time events always took place when she was alone and outdoors. She was never taken from her house or a building or interior structure. She would become extremely dizzy and blackout shortly after the light or ray of light hit her.
Diane married in her 20’s and had three children all in a row. After her last child was born she had an increase in the number of lost time events that continued throughout her life until she was about 40 years old. Each time she would be taken while out in the world by first seeing the strange light or ray followed by blacking out and then becoming conscious hours later usually in an unfamiliar place.
Diane’s physical damaged was increasing now after each lost time event as well. She was becoming ill for weeks not days with flu like attacks that included rashes and high fevers. She was developing severe allergies to foods she had always eaten before. Diane was no longer able to spend but a few minutes, without being covered, in the sun or she would end up with blistering sunburn. For a woman who loved the beach and being outdoors with her family this was a devastating change. Diane developed problems with her sight that included not being able to see during the daytime when outdoors without very dark sunglasses. Driving at night become impossible for her as she could not see at all when the head lights of other vehicles hit her eyes. The strangest thing about Diane’s physical changes over the years was the way after each lost time event her body mass or structure started to completely change.
After Diane had her three children she stood about 5 foot 5 and weighed about 140 pounds. She was as curvy dark haired beauty with dark blue eyes. Diane’s body changes started after the lost time event that took place after her children had been born. She began to lose not only body fat but body mass. Her once firm legs and arms started to lose muscle and tone leaving her with long thin arms and legs. Diane also noticed her fingers becoming long and bony which they were never like before and she was far too young for them to change in this manner by age. The changes slowly increased after each lost time experience until the age of 45. At this point in time Diane found she was a stick thin woman who not only could not tolerate the sun who now had reddish hair and very light blue eyes. These changes took place slowly after each event but did eventually end up completely changing her appearance. The strangest of strange things about Diane that now at age 45 she stood 5 foot 7 inches tall which was 2 inches taller than she was in her 20s and 30s.
Diane’s doctors could not explain the drastic changes in Diane’s body and found her to otherwise be a healthy adult. She had a full life raising her family and spent time working with her husband in a family business they owned. Diane, who is now entering the stage of life known as ‘the change of life’, has not had a lost time event in about four years. She hopes they may now be over and she can enter a time when she is not frightened of being out in the world alone or if she does go out no longer need a chaperone to protect her from being taken.
I have not included Diane as one of my real time abductee cases as her life has been different from that of the other abductees. Although Diane does share very similar childhood experiences with the real time abductees I found the overall sum of their experiences very different to Diane's The harm done physically to Diane is different from that of the real time abductees as is her physical appearance. Diane has never seen a craft of any type nor can remember anything at all to what happens to her once she is hit by the light or ray that begins her lost time events. She does not have any recall or flash backs of what happens while she is gone nor does she recall any beings, creatures or people of any kind. Diane seems to be in a class all of her own.
I have no idea at all what or who has been intruding in this woman’s life or what or why they have been doing this to her over the years. I do know these events happened as she has had witnesses to her abductions by people who have seen the light or ray hit her that would simply remove her from where she stood right in front of their eyes. The question of who it is that is doing this and what they want will remain unfortunately for now another mysterious unknown. I am glad that the events seem to be over for this woman and thank her for sharing them with us. She does not want her life interrupted nor does she seek fame or attention she simply hopes the information she has shared will somehow someday help another who may be dealing with similar events.
