White lights and a man appears

Hi, the last 3 nights have been really scary for me. The first night i was awaken by white lights(like lightning), when i opened my eyes i say a man standing at the foot of my bed. He resembled someone I know. I turned on the light and no one was there. The second night the white lights woke me up again, and that same man was standing in the exact same spot at the foot of my bed. THis time he seems mad. He is breathing heavily. I am so scared I was afraid to move. I was afraid to turn on the light for I would actually see someone in my house. I started to cry. He is always wearing the same things, jeans, a tshirt, and a hat. I can never make out his face. When I finally turned on the light he wasnt there. I checked my room and ended up sleeping with lights on. Last night my boyfriend stayed over. I told him that day what was happening. Well I kept seeing white lights(like stobe lights), and I could feel the presence of that man but he wouldnt make himself seen last night. I know he was there. Its like he didnt want to come because my boyfriend was there. Please, someone please tell me whats going on. I am scared out of my mind. I'm worried that this "thing/ghost" may become more angry. My mom says I should try talking to it. I dont know what to do. I'm freaking out. I'm 38 and I have 2 sons at home.

The first thing to do is to buy a glucose meter. These halucinations are common with either very high or low blood sugar. The halucinations are very real and tactile. They are produced in religious exercises by fasting, and are common with extreme diets.

I do not argue with the advice above, but to explore other details
1) you say you saw the lights, but you boyfriend did not?
2) you felt the presence of the man/figure, do you fell a presence at any other time, at any past time in your life?  I don't even know what that means, would feel like.  

I am a bit "spooky" and over respond to unusual sounds and shadows and take measure to calm my imagination (which is all it has been so far, thank God) such as motion sensing lights around my house, and loaded guns.  I am at/past the age where eyes start producing "floaters" and I have reacted to those at times with a chill down my back and the feeling something passed by the doorway to the next room.  Maybe that's feeling the presence of another "being" in the area.  These always past fast for me.  One thing I have going for me is I am a large male myself over 6' 5" and in pretty good shape at 225 pounds (albeit old and slow).  

Just trying to relate, hope I am not off the subject.

Do you know you were awake when you saw the lights and figure?  Or was it a dream and you later woke up and turned on the light.

Did leaving the lights on prevent any further occurrence - did you sleep with the lights on?  If so, then you mind feels some security with the light being on, perhaps you mind, like mine, would gain some security if you had one or two motion detector alarms in you home...but these could be tripped by someone who is moving about with your permission - you said you have two boys, very young or old enough to be of some help?

By all means, check out what caregiver222 has offered, and beyond that think about some of the above as the basis of a strategy to help you mind take control.
