Ghost Stories from RedWolf

They Knew I Was Sick on 2017-09-20

Labor day weekend I was not feeling well at all. I had a feeling of dread the week before. I am not like that so I knew it was a feeling coming from someone/thing projecting this feeling on me. When I really started to feel unwell my dogs and puppies at first just started checking on me. Then they w...

Two Incredible Saves on 2017-08-04

Most of you know I have a bad back but not to what extent. I have three screws that are loosening and you can actually see them if I have a tight shirt or if I lift my shirt. One is actually broken, these screws are about 1/4 inch thick. I have bad scoliosis, one of my ribs is touching one of the ve...

The Letter V on 2017-03-14

I have to start by using filler. So here goes, my father in-law had 2 sisters Esther and Virginia, whom family and friends called V.He also had a brother named George who died when my oldest child was a toddler. His siblings were all born in Italy near Naples. He was the only one born here in the St...

Mixed Signals on 2017-02-07

On January 23rd my mother in law was in a pretty bad accident. A 91 year old woman in a Lexus SUV had a stop sign and was almost in the middle of my mother in-laws lane. She backed up and my mother in-law assumed she would stay there and continued on. Personally I would have my foot on the brake in ...

Something Wacky This Way Comes on 2016-11-23

Around the end of September beginning of October new people moved into the house behind me. They cut down all but one sickly looking tree in the middle of their back yard. So about 4-7 healthy trees were cut down. There is a tree service that offers us wood for our wood stove all the time because th...

My Friend Billy Part 2 on 2016-08-03

Thank you all who read my first story. As I said I had tried more than a dozen times to write that story. It didn't matter whether I used my tablets or my P.C. The story would disappear. I even felt like something was attached to my shoulder one night and my son even confirmed he felt a electrical t...

My Friend Billy on 2016-07-04

Now before I get to the story about Billy I have to give you a little backstory. I tried to write this story more than a dozen times a few months ago. It didn't matter which tablet I used or if I used the P.C. At some point I would lose the story. I thought it was my father-in-law was messing with m...

Grey Sock on 2016-04-25

You've all read about all the antics my father in-law has pulled at my house. This is a prank he pulled on my mother in-law at her house. By the way he's been making comments I'm trying to type disappear today. I have her permission to write this story. My mother in-law was doing her laundry one ...

Here We Go Again Family Visitors on 2016-03-30

In the later part of mid February my mother in-law called me a little after 9 AM. She told me that our doctor called her to get to the hospital and that she needed a blood transfusion. I had about 2 1/2 hours sleep that night because pain and hadn't gone to bed until 6 AM and didn't have nearly enou...

Forewarnings Of Family Members Deaths on 2016-03-02

Starting in my early twenties, once in awhile a live blood relative would come to me in a dream. They would insist that I take them to either the train, cruise ship, or airport. They would insist that I stay with them until they departed. Within a week to ten days later that person died. One nigh...

Upsetting Experience Before Yacht Party on 2015-12-09

As most of you know I live on Long Island. One of the contractors that my husband used invited us to attend a party on his yacht about 9 or 10 months after the 9/11/01. The problem for me was we had to walk right by where the Twin Towers once stood. I was disgusted by all the gawkers looking through...

My Engagement Ring on 2015-11-09

I had to have a hysterectomy at the age of 36 in 1997 so I had to take my rings off before the surgery. When I got home I didn't bother putting the rings back on because my fingers were swollen. At the time I didn't have a good jewelry box so I had my husband put my wedding and engagement rings ...

My Mother In-law Her First Paranormal Experience on 2015-09-09

As stated in the title my mother in-law had her first paranormal experience the night before last. Before I tell you about it I have to tell you that before she met me she didn't believe in anything paranormal or supernatural. She was a skeptic even after I've made predictions that came true. ...

Update On My Story Spirits Around Me on 2015-08-04

I know that I've written a lot of stories lately. But I wanted to update you on the little girl and boy spirits that were murdered by their father along with their mother. We have never seen or felt the mother. She might have crossed over quickly, perhaps she was the first one killed I don't know. M...

Father-in-law Is Still Around on 2015-07-30

If you read my last story "Visiting Relatives", you will know that my father-in-law was 1 of 2 spirits annoyed at me for not ending Jethro's suffering. The other was my grandfather as he loves dogs and has my dogs that have passed and brought Jethro up to Heaven. But my father-in-law was here fo...

Visiting Relatives on 2015-07-13

The past couple of weeks I felt one spirit, which I quickly identified as my father in-law. One day my mother in-law came over in a tizzy because she got one of her renewed credit card with a rather self-explanatory letter about a "chip" being in it. I tried to explain to her the chip is for places ...

My Ouija Board Experiences Two Hurt Friends on 2015-07-01

I am always telling people not to use the O.B. Now I will tell you why. My mother bought one when I was around 17 years old. We were cautioned to ask for a white light of protection before using one. My friends would come over to ''play'' with it. I could always feel others push/pull the planchette ...

Outter Heaven on 2015-06-16

As I told yo in my last story I have had quite a few neck and back surgeries. This event happened after my last back surgery in 2011 shortly after I came home from the hospital. Sometimes I have dreams so real I actually feel awake, like an out of body experience. When it is time for me to get out o...

What The Heck Was That? on 2015-06-15

Before I tell you what happened to me I have to give a bit of a back story (pun intended). I have had 3 back surgeries. The first in Nov. 2004 was just to clip 2 disks. They had to refer to them as L-4/5 L-5/S1 because I have an extra vertebrae also called a transitional vertebrae. Then in June of ...

I Met My Husband Because Of A Bet. Or Did I? on 2014-03-03

This is not your ordinary ghost story. Nor is it a ordinary love story. It's a bit of both. In the fall of '82 I was working in a machine shop at minimum wage making drill bits. My brothers' friend had been laid off so he made a bet with me. I had to type up and mail out 25 resumes by a certain ...

My Parents' House Was Haunted on 2014-01-28

One night I was taking a hot shower and had the bathroom window which was above the tub open a little to get some steam out. There was fresh fallen snow and as I turned off the water, I heard crunching in the snow. I looked out of the window and there was a teenage boy running through our backyard w...

Grampa Is Still There on 2013-09-10

A few months ago my nephew's father in-law Dan died in his sleep. Out of respect for the family I will be changing names. After my nephew Tim was discharged from the military he could not find a job. So he, his wife Carrie and 2 young daughters, not quite 2 year old Grace and newborn Sara, moved ...

Grandpa Sending Me Messages From Heaven on 2013-06-03

As I stated in another story my maternal grandfather died in 1990. A few months after we moved into our current home I was reading the pet adoption ads. I saw an ad for a Husky rescue, they had a dog named Niko for adoption. I called the number but after speaking to the woman I didn't think the dog ...

My Neighbor Artie on 2013-02-18

Early one morning in December of '02 or '03 everyone in the house was awakened by my dogs barking hysterically. I had large tubular wind chimes that were making a racket and our motion sensor lights were turning on and off like a strobe light. After a few minutes things settled down. My husband g...

Family Spirits 2 on 2013-02-05

My mother died Mothers' Day 2008, just a few minutes before midnight. She had been in the hospital for weeks because of lung cancer and emphysema. My mom did not want to die anywhere around May 5th because that is my oldest sons' birthday and my father died 3 years before on May 3rd. I know this bec...

Family Spirits on 2012-11-22

My grandfather was a wonderful man, a tile setter by trade. He taught me how to set tile and paint. He also taught me how to drive and other life lessons as well. He had a heart attack and needed a pace maker when my daughter was a toddler. When my oldest son was just over 10 months old he had anoth...

Spirits Around Me on 2012-07-03

A week before Christmas in 1998, we moved into the house my family and I now live in. At first things were peaceful but then things got a bit strange. Two of my children told me about hearing footsteps on the stairs from my daughters' room to the basement. Some were not human but animal. At first I ...

My First Encounters With Ghosts on 2012-01-09

I have known since I was young that I had psychic abilities and been able to sense ghosts. The first time I was touched by a ghost I was about 12. I wanted to go to a local store and being 12 I was running. I was about to cross a road when all of a sudden I felt someone grab my shoulder. I turned ar...

I'm with RC about the bidding war. A ghost that will cook AND clean? This is a spirit that I doubt you have to worry about. If however you find a correlation between your headaches and ghostly activity you may have to tell your "guest" that it has to leave. Be nice about it because it sounds like a benign spirit, and explain that it's energy gives you a headache.

Was there a change in your mothers' demeanor or habits after this attachment? If not then I doubt that "thing" stayed around her for long.

Evidently whatever is in her house doesn't bother her. Her faith is probably why she has not talked about this.

I agree with lady-glow and Rook. Demons do not have names like Mitchell and rarely tell you their real names.

I am going to tell you what I tell everyone that uses the O.B. Is NOT a toy and should not be used for any reason especially a teenager.

Talk to your parents and ask them for help. You can not let this entity stick around any longer.

I loved your poem, it was awesome.

I haven't been on a horse in years. Because of my back needing fusion repair I may never be able to ride again.

I do have a very funny story about my mother when she went riding with my youngest sister on a beach. I had advised her to make sure to keep the horse's head up because they love to roll in sand. Well when they got home my mother said to me you b!tch the horse did exactly what you said it would do. My sister starts laughing as she says you should have been there when mom jumped off of the horse. At that point my mother starts laughing and said that someone should have had a camera to take a picture of her trail guides face. She was asked how she knew to jump if the horse got it's head down and my mother just said another daughter told her.

Your story made me smile. 😊 I love when in-laws or grandparents send messages that they are okay. It's a good thing my father in-law loved me because he's still hanging around.

I too would like to know how you knew the name and age of this "trickster"? Did he walk into your house and sing-song my name is Alex I am 15 and I'm a trickster to play tricks on you?

It doesn't work that way. He probably lied to you about his name/age.

Also all you had to do is tell him he is NOT welcome, he has to get out of your house and he would have to leave.

Ah well,lady-glow,Melda I'm with you 2

My deceased grandfather used to take things and move them on me. But my deceased father in-law has done it way more. I just say okay dad put it back and I go and relax and it shows back up a little while later not too far from where I know I put it.

The lake very well be haunted. After all IS something that holds memories of things that have gone on in history. The apparitions you saw possibly felt that you could get out on your own thus threw you in. I am happy you are okay, but would suggest you get hepatitis c test just in case.

There is a lake on Long Island not too far from where I live that for many years took the life of a man, by means of drowning. Without hi-jacking your story, for about 20 years there were no drownings. But in the past few years the drownings are coming back. I hope that is just a fluke.

I don't know how old your children are but it sounds to me that you have post-partum psychosis.
A lot of people don't believe in this but it is very real. They also think that it shows up right away but symptoms can start 6 months to a year after a baby is born.
Please go to see a psychiatrist or another medical professional to get some medication. Tell him/her everything you have told us. Better yet if you have a printer, print both stories and let them read it. Your life may be at stake, please stop saying you want to kill yourself your children and husband need you. A HEALTHY YOU.

Animals grieve just as humans do. I'm an animal lover and have had many dogs.
When I had Jethro put down because of cancer I noticed D and the other dogs looking for him for awhile. When I had to have D down the next spring because he was old and arthritic I said Zim isn't going to last 6 months now. I wish I never uttered those words. He loved D and I noticed that he started to lose weight a couple of weeks later but he had been over weight prior so I figured he was in a funk like I was. In July and Zim couldn't get up, it took him 3 hours to get from my room to the living room. I tearfully made an appointment to euthanize him. I called my husband and I told him what was transpiring. Of course he's the great procrastinator for doing this and we got into the usual argument, he always wants me to wait, I told him no. Zim was in a lot of pain. Later after the vet had euthanized Zim I realized that it was 1 day after the 1st anniversary of Jethro's death.

I'm glad your brother was brave enough to tell the ghost to get out. I tell people who have asked how to get rid of a spirit to just tell it to get out, it is not welcome and I get amazed phone calls saying they did this and they no longer have problems.

Just remember no welcome mats either.


It is very easy to get creepy feelings from old houses. Was there a temperature change like you all of a sudden got cold? Did the other couple and the real estate agent come rushing out with scared looks on their faces? Spirits are equal opportunity spookers, even a non-believer can get scared by a ghostly prank IF there was a ghost.


Such a beautiful story. Cancer took both of my parents and a few other family members, heart disease and strokes too.
When my grandfather died my in-laws were watching my then 4 year old and 10 month old. My daughter wanted to say good bye to my grandfather so I brought her to the casket and she had me hold her so she could kiss him goodbye. I started crying and she took her hands to dry my tears and told me not to cry grandpa wanted me to smile. I asked her how she knew and she said that when she kissed him he told her to say stop crying doll to me. Doll was a term of endearment my grandfather used on all of us girls.


It's too bad that nobody told you that you can make a spirit leave just by telling it that it must because you do not want it there and it is not welcome. You may have to do this several times but if you are firm and show no fear it should leave. I've done this myself and it does work.
My daughter has gone to a place that I need to write about and has brought home a spirit or two that I had to get rid of,


I like your attitude towards the spirits in your house. Telling the spirit to stop changing channels on your T.V. Because you knew it was there was perfect. 😊

I know how hard it is to keep toys around with dogs. We have 6 now. The mother,father,3 HUGE 8 month old puppies and an older dog. Try putting the toys on a table where the dogs can't disturb them and see if they have been moved.

Lady-glow was being sarcastic when she said that there was a 3 eyed monster with a mouth full of sharp pointy teeth. That should have been evident when she said it was waiting to play jump rope with you.

Now as for your saying you had a strong gut feeling that someone/something was staring at you with an angry look. We can't go by gut feelings and say that these feelings are of a supernatural nature. 🙄


Please do submit more stories, I enjoyed this one very much.

I like the idea that your lot (s) were used as a makeshift hospital. Many times when there has been a great tragedy the spirits stick around for a long time, or never leave.

Leaving toys out for them is a really good idea, so is trying to talk them and letting them know the rules in your house.

I'm looking forward to reading more of your experiences.

People have been on the fence about imaginary friends. There are people that say that very young children speak and interact (play) with spirits. At around 6 or 7 sometimes older they stop. Some people will say it's because the parents hammer into kids heads that there are no such things as ghosts and they are too old for imaginary friends. Other times kids just stop believing on their own and close their third eye.
I hope that helps.

If you had taken the phone to the store you bought it from they should have been able to retrieve your data including your pictures. Sorry but without the pictures maybe you should have waited to post the story.
I don't know. The age doesn't seem to fit as Rook pointed out. My question is (and maybe it's because I'm from Long Island and people insist I have a Brooklyn accent) but who in the U.S. Calls their mother mum unless they immigrated from Europe. In my section of the world mothers are called ma,mother,mom,mommy,or the moniker I got stuck with,mama. My dogs, 5 Malamutes (3 8 month old pups) and you know how they vocalize, call me mama.

Again as Rook pointed out. Why did the lady wait for 7 years to show up. Didn't you give her directions to your new house?

I'm sorry if I sound blunt,it's all really in jest but I really don't get the age you are. Welcome to Y.G.S. 😁
