Feeling a Bit Crazy

Posted on August 18, 2009

I stumbled across this site, and realized that maybe there’s someone here who can help me. I feel like I’m slowly losing my mind.

Ever since I was small, I can remember strange things happening to me or around me: lights breaking, strange shadows, furniture/items moving, and even more scary, experiencing strange blackouts. My mother always seemed to have an explanation for all of it or ignored it, and for a period of time (from age 10 until 14) nothing at all happened. I was tested for epilepsy and a broad range of mental illnesses, but nothing was ever found. When I confronted my mother about the incidents, she just looked scared and said I was imagining things.

The blackouts started when I was about 20 and living on my own. I’d be going about my day, and then suddenly blink and hours would have disappeared. My home would usually be completely trashed or everything would be moved around. I believe I may be doing it, but sometimes there are things too heavy for me to move that have been moved. (I found an old clawfoot tub from my bathroom uprooted and outside in the backyard. It weighed at least 200 – 300 pounds, and took me, my dad, and my brother to lift and put back.)

I keep finding strange and unusual marks, cuts, and scratches on my body, and usually in places that I cannot reach on my own. I’ve bought fresh fruit and vegetables, only to find that hours or sometimes even minutes later they’ve rotted. I’ve seen strange shadows behind me in mirrors or around corners. When I sleep, I’ve felt either freezing cold or burning hot fingers/hands touching me.

I have talked to priests, pastors, rabbis, you name it. Living in a small town, many of them treat me as though I should be institutionalized. Only a friend, a self-appointed Pagan priestess, has come and done a ritual cleansing, which seems to keep things calm for a few months.

I’ve come to the point where many of my friends and family have drifted away, labeling me as “crazy” or “disturbed.” I’m not. I don’t know what is happening to me, or even why. I don’t even know where to get help in getting rid of this. I sleep on average 2 – 3 hours per night, I am always tired/exhausted, and always scared. These incidents have begun to escalate.

On the outside, I appear to be a normal, stable 32 year old woman. I have an 8 year old son, who’s seen some of these strange activities. He’s talked about being scared of “the lady,” but won’t elaborate. I work at a decent job, have a college education. Underneath, I’m barely hanging on. I need help.

If anyone has experienced this type of phenomenon before, or knows of someone who can help, please please let me know.

    Sounds to me like your being pocessed by something or some one..Something that is very strong, and can take controll when it wants, As far as help, seems like one of the churchs would help . Keep trying.

  2. Kei says:

    Wow, that sounds really intense. That type of thing is hard to be certain about when it comes to explaining it. I wouldnt go as far as to officially decide that you’re losing your mind and all this is just in your head. As much as I wish it werent true, it might be an evil force or something along the lines of that— but don’t completely assume that either.
    I just wish you the best of luck and hope you over come this somehow.

  3. Eephant says:

    Dont worry you are NOT crazy and don’t let anyone tell you that you are. You might be posessed or It could be a poltergiest r something. I think there is a flower that you can sleep with that keeps things out of your room. Try keeping one in your pocket.

  4. DarStarr says:

    Oh, honey, you need to find help somewhere, please be careful. I believe you and will pray for you. I am saddened that your family has distanced themselves from you. That is exactely what this entity or whatever wants. You must keep your faith strong and pray. I wish you all the luck, and if you need to talk, we are here.
    God bless you.

  5. Jenae says:

    I do beleive that things like that do happen but then again i think i have seen a movie that the same thing happened but hey i’m not saying it’s not true because there are really weird thing like that that do happen

  6. Christina says:

    Although your family has distanced themselves from you, and to truly have an idea of where to seek help, you need to sit your mom down and ask/plead with her to tell you what she knows about your condition. I wouldn’t or couldn’t even put a lable on what is happening to you, but from what you’ve written it’s serious and she needs to come clean with you.

    In order to make a stand, YOU need to know WHERE you stand and your mother may be one of the keys. You’ve come this far, have a child and do lead a decent life, which shows you are STRONG. I would not categorize you as crazy; that’s just a word people use when they don’t want to get involved or deal with a real life situation. Hang tough and the answer will come one way or another, whether on this site or somewhere else.

    Do let us know how you are and God bless.

  7. DarStarr says:

    Please listen to Christina! She made so much sense. You need to take control of what-ever this is and beat it! You ARE strong! And I couldn’t agree more about sitting your mother down and making her come clean. This is your life you are talking about and you deserve happiness!
    Christina, kudo’s to you for being so sensitive and yet telling it like it is!!!

  8. Hayley C. says:

    Wow! I am so sorry that you have to go through all of these expeiriances. It is very unfortuanate. You are not crazy. Something or someone has taking over you and trying to torture you. But you are STRONG! This is not a pleasant/nice entity trying to communticate. If anything, Its evil/demonic trying to possess you. But like i said, YOU ARE STRONG. You really need to contact your mother and talk to her about all of the expeiriances you have been having throughout your life. What i am thinking is that she probably has had some expeiriances of her own.(thats why she doesnt like to talk about this subject) But remember, just because family and friends failed to help you, doesnt mean you can’t help yourself. Communicate and talk to a person who specializes in demonic/evil entities. (such as a medium or a psycic) You could talk to a priest/ pastor and maybe look into getting a blessing on you….. If things get more extreme with the entity inside of you, I hate to say it, but, you might want to talk to a priest about an exorcism. I really hope this helps hun! BA BYE!

    p.s. STAY STRONG!!

    Eve, you are having a typical haunting. You need to get help, but DO NOT PANIC. You are not crazy, believe me, these things nave happened to so many people.
    You need a therapy called aura healing. It’s very simple.

  10. gayle says:

    your aura is an electrical feild surrounding your whole body. this feild also protects you from negative vibes. Negative vibes can be emmitted from people who dont have a very good mindset and are negative in their thinking eg. a very irritating boss, an over bearing frnd etc. Negative vibes can also be emmitted from ghosts that are ‘bad’. Your aura can either be a strong or a weak one. If yours is weak, you literally ABSORB these bad energies from your environment. My suggestion is to buy a book on aura healing. For more info, or help, pls contact me on my e mail id.

  11. Lizzie says:

    This is a polterguist, When my dad was younger he had one and it used to throw things around have cuts and bruises when he woke up and it plays and messes with your head, the longer you leave it the stronger and more powerful the experiences get. The last straw for my dad was when he was on his motor bike and it locked the handle bars so he couldnt turn and was speeding up and he was heading straight for a wall. i cant remember how he got off but he said there a tunnel like an alley int he wall but it had disappeared and he couldnt see anythink everythink was black so he had to feel his way. My dad had to go to the church and get a priest to get rid of it. I suggest you go to your nearest church and say you think you have a polterguiest and its getting stronger and im sure they will help.

  12. brittney says:

    I would try to contact a paranormal research agency online if i were you. they might be able offer you help. and if you are possessed they could get ahold of a priest that will take this a little more serious to help you. that is my best advise. hang in there and keep your faith strong. God has helped almost all strong believers. but i dont think nothing will help you if you dont believe it will work.

  13. Miriah says:

    Wow this is so crazy im sorry this is happening to you. I can see why you would feel like your going crazy. Its like everyone else said though you need to get help. Have you tried sleeping with a bible in your room? I wonder if it might help. Of course if it,also try praying right before you sleep. I dont know if these things will help or not. But im hoping they will. I would also put a bible in your sons room.or even crosses. Someone said to look up a paranormal site and talk to them. That seems like a very good idea to me. You need a priest to help you. Good luck hun.

    The title of your story got my attention because I have found myself using those words to describe how my life has been going. I am impressed that you’ve had a college education, and you have an 8 year old son. I’m still trying to finish school and I’m in my fifties…, I’m starting to think “what’s the point?” My children are in their thirties now, and I live alone (I’m sure that is a factor.). I suffer with a lot of chronic pain, and other conditions I don’t feel free to discuss here.

    Some of the things you describe happening seem to be easily associated with “ghosts” of one sort or another. I suspect demon activity. You’re going to get a lot of that sort of “diagnosis” at this site. Years of this kind of pressure could easily make you ill, don’t be to quick to rule that out. The account of the bathtub is really unusual, it can’t be easily ignored.

    I think there are a lot of people visiting this site that wish you well. Like others may have mentioned, I’ll pray for you…, I’m Christian.

    One more thought. Have you considered setting up some sort of camera/video recorder where all this activity is occurring? This sort of evidence may be needed if you come to the conclusion that your house is haunted and the church (Catholic) needs to do an exorcisim. I understand they are not easily convinced.
