First of all, I would like to thank everyone for submitting stories. I enjoy reading everyone�s personal experiences because I have had quite a few beginning when I was a small child. But this is not about then. I had my most recent experience this evening. I apologize in advance for how long this story is.
I injured my back in January of 2010 in a car accident, and sometimes the only relief I can get is by taking a hot bath for hours at a time. Sometimes it can get a bit boring, so I take a kitchen chair and place my laptop next to the claw-foot tub, I usually read stories from TrueGhostTales.com.
I live with my boyfriend and another roommate. Tonight, my roommate left the house at 5:30 pm to bowl in a league with his father. I hung out with my boyfriend until 6:15 pm when he also had to leave to bowl in a different league than our roommate. I had walked him to the door and then locked it behind him then went into the kitchen and made myself a quick snack.
I proceeded to the bathroom for my usual bath routine with the laptop on the chair. I was reading in the bath and about 6:55 pm I heard 3 loud bangs coming from my kitchen. At first I thought it was my upstairs neighbors (they have hard-wood floors and even footsteps sound loud), but after I thought about it, I thought that something had fallen in my apartment. I stepped out in just a towel and stepped out the bathroom. I walked into the kitchen and my heart stopped. Six cupboard doors were wide open! I am very adamant about shutting cupboards because of my tall boyfriend and roommate because they will hit their head if they are left open.� I remember closing the only cupboard door that I had used when preparing my snack, and the others were already closed.� I quickly searched the entire apartment looking to see if someone was home or if someone had entered my home. I inspected each room thoroughly, checked the locked doors and even texted my boyfriend and roommate to see if they forgot something, and stopped home quick. Both said no.
Needless to say, I panicked and went back into the bathroom and locked the door without closing the cupboards. I quickly got dressed and called my best friend and explained my situation. I made her stay on the phone as I exited the bathroom, planning to have a cigarette outside. As I rounded the corner I looked up, and all of the cupboards in the kitchen were closed!
I hastily bundled up (I live in Minnesota and it�s about 4 degrees out) and went outside and called my sister who (is lucky and) lives in California with her Air Force husband. She believes that I may have poltergeist activity due to stress.
Here�s a bit of my background, I was kicked out of my house for smoking marijuana (once!) shortly after my 19th birthday (March). I moved into my boyfriend�s apartment until May 31st, when we all ( bf, myself and other roommate) moved into a shady neighborhood very close to downtown. I work for a small business for below minimum wage (I used to be a CNA but after the car accident I realized that I cannot transfer people without injuring myself more), and we are very short on money to the point of needing government assistance. My boyfriend (of 4 years) is very supportive except for the fact that he doesn�t �believe in that ghost crap�. My family on the other hand is very spiritual.
Could this really be poltergeist activity? I always believed that poltergeist activity stemmed from pre-pubescent females. As I mentioned, I am 19. I don�t want help from the church because I am not part of any church and I kind of have my own belief system.� I have lots of questions, such as �How do I tell if it�s poltergeist activity or spiritual or demonic?� and �How can I get rid of this?�

*Please note* I have dabbled with the Ouija board a few years ago and had a bad experience and I know for a fact that no Ouija board has been played nor even entered my home*
