“I was working really late when I decided to take a break to take my dog out. I let them off the leash and popped a squat on the stairs. As she does with her weird little poop ritual, she stopped dead in her tracks about 20 feet in front of a tree. I was about another 30 or so feet behind her, but I could see that her hackles had come out and her body was completely rigid. I softly called her name, but it didn’t break her trance. As I started getting closer to her, I noticed a change in the ever-present ringing in my ear.”

“It’s important to know that I suffer from Meniere’s Disease, so I have constant tinnitus, ear fullness, hearing loss, and debilitating vertigo attacks. Well, I used to have vertigo. I haven’t had an attack in over a decade. Remember this.

Anyway, the ringing in my ear changed in pitch and become a lot louder. Another few steps, and I start to feel a weird sensation behind my left eyeball. I took another few steps and a piercing pain shot through the left side of my head. This was the telltale sign that within the next 90 seconds, I was going to start my first vertigo attack in nearly 11 years.

I used a more stern tone, but my dog would not break her focus. She let out a deep, guttural growl I’d never heard her make before. Like clockwork, the pain behind my left eye and left side of my head abruptly ended, and I was hit with a wave of heavy vertigo. I hooked on my dog’s leash and stood up. When I did, the vertigo gave off the sensation that my brain had detached from the base of my spine and was doing freeform back flips in my skull. I had to fight to stay upright, and keep my eyes from rolling back so I had enough perceived balance to make it back upstairs. To do this, I focused on the tree that my dog had been so upset about…and that’s when the thing decided to step out from behind it and into our view. It was tall — taller than me, and I’m at 6’7″. It was unimaginably skinny, so much so that I couldn’t believe organs could fit inside its torso. Along with its odd stature, the thing’s ‘skin’ was this deep pitch black. Due to the color, and the weird way it played with the poor lighting, it was impossible to make out any discernible facial or body features. From that impression alone, the only description I can muster up is that it looked like a poorly drawn 2D stickman that busted off the page.

My dog and I  just stared at this thing as it ‘looked’ back at us from maybe 6 feet away. Then, the thing turned around and took off down the street, running at an astounding speed. It moved oddly though, like it was gliding. Almost what a cross-country skier might look like, but even smoother and completely silent. It covered half a block in a matter of seconds before jumping over a 6-foot fence in a single leap and vanishing into the night. A second after it vanished, my vertigo stopped, the tinnitus went down, and I was mostly fine again. I don’t know if my sudden vertigo attack was related to what I saw that night, but it certainly feels that way. Vertigo attacks that are associated with Meniere’s tend to last an hour at their shortest and 24 hours at their longest. My attacks always averaged in the 12–16 hour range. This attack lasted less than two minutes.”
