Here's a little background -I moved into my apartment in Hoboken, NJ about 5 years ago. It's a one bedroom on the first floor of brownstone, it's a pre-war building. About a year after moving in I noticed something strange at night. First time it happened, I was asleep in my bed but woke up because it felt like somebody had sat on my bed - the bed literally moved. I live alone.
I would wake up and look at the alarm clock - 330am. I looked around the room - nobody. I checked the living room, bathroom, and kitchen - nothing. This happened on and off for a couple months then stopped for a year. Then it started happening again about a year after that, only when it happened again it felt as though somebody was pushing on my legs. Again, I'd wake up, it would be 330am and do the routine check - nothing. This continued to happen until last year when things took a turn for the worse. Whatever it is that's doing this is apparently not happy because it started shaking me in my bed. I felt like I was having some sort of seizure as I would wake up while my body convulsed up and down. It was terrifying. It happened four times then stopped until last night.
I was soundly asleep when I felt the bed move. I thought to myself "oh no not again" but this time not only did the bed move but it became very cold and my ears starting ringing. I began to pray to God for it to stop but it did not stop. My blanket started to move. I screamed "STOP" and it did but then a minute went by and it started again and again I screamed "STOP" and began to make the sign of the Cross. I prayed the Lord's Prayer until whatever it is went away.
Now I know that this may sound insane but believe me when I tell you with a 100% certainty that this happened. I work in finance and there is no way that anyone at my office would believe me. I told my mom and she told me to go around my bed with salt. I told a friend of mine and said that with all the fires that happened in Hoboken in the early 1900s that she's not surprised I have a ghost.
I don't know what this ghost wants but I will tell you that I do not believe it's friendly; it's trying to scare me. I don't know what to do about it; I'm certainly not going to move as I like my apartment and its location. I just hope that whatever it is goes away. I didn't think that ghosts can harm you but now I'm not so sure.
