Well, I will start off by saying that growing up I have always been perceptive to ghosts or spirits, or whatever you wish to call them. I am now 19 years old and am more terrified than I have ever been by a ghost in my life.
I have been living in my grandparents house for about four months now. Growing up I used to spend a lot of time here and there was always one room that I tried to avoid because it made me feel very uneasy and panicky. That room is now the one I sleep in. For the first several months I didn’t feel anything more than the usual uneasiness and occasionally the feeling of being watched. However, the feeling made me so uneasy that I sleep with a night light, which is not typical of a 19 year old.
A few weeks ago I was talking on the phone with my boyfriend and my grandparents were asleep so I had shut my door so that I would not wake them. (I usually sleep with my door open, again because I was uncomfortable). I noticed that I was starting to fall asleep after the phone call and thought to myself that I needed to get up and open my door, but I felt so tired that I decided to leave it closed.
After falling asleep I started having horrible nightmares about my family dying, and all sorts of terrifying other things. I knew that I was sleeping and they were just nightmares so I tried to wake myself up, but I couldn’t. I felt like something didn’t want me to wake up and was forcing me to stay asleep in these nightmares. I finally was able to wake myself up enough to jump up and open my door. I was so shook up that I grabbed my bible and said a prayer. It took me a couple of hours to fall asleep, but when I did I no longer had the nightmares.
After that I noticed anytime I left my room and the hall way was dark I immediately became very paranoid that I was being watched. I felt like someone was standing behind me, watching over my shoulder. I would find myself running to the living room where there was light because I felt sure that something was reaching out to attack me. I also have several very over-protective dogs. The oldest of the dogs never barks unless the mailman comes or there is someone at the door, and even less often growls. I started to notice that when I am home alone she would stand outside the door in the hallway and back bedrooms and growl for several seconds, and then walk away.
After this I would have nightmares more and more often. The same type of nightmares and the same feeling that something didn’t want me to wake up. I am not one to be scared easily but all of this had really started to get to me. My grandparents go out of town often and I am left home alone. Due to recent events I have become afraid of sleeping alone at night so when I was left home alone this weekend I had a friend stay over with me on Friday night, and Saturday I stayed with a friend.
Last night my grandfather came home and I thought that I would be able to sleep well. But now I find myself nervous, and anxious. I feel like I am being watched all the time and feel very paranoid. Last night I started having horrible thoughts, just scary images in my head of death and decay, horrible things inside my head. Last night I was so on edge that I didn’t sleep. I haven’t slept in over 34 hours, and I am not tired at all. I have no appetite either, which is very odd because I am always eating.
I Guess this isn’t really a story to tell, I am just more interested in if anyone has any idea on what I should do. I do not think my grandparents would believe me if I told them and I do not know how to make this all stop and go away. Can I make it go away and if so how do I? If any one could help me I would really appreciate it.
