First and foremost let me just say I am a 23 year old mother and up until I got married and moved this past 2 weeks, I never felt scared of what I feel is "following" me. I have always had a sense for things, spirits whatever we want to call them. I always had an interest in the supernatural, I loved watching the haunting shows and finding haunted places.
I'm not exactly sure when all of this started. I would have to say first that I lost two very very close family members. My uncle, who was more like a father to me, when I was 5. And my aunt when I was 16. Both sudden deaths. I like to tell myself it's them with me but recently, I'm not sure.
I want to say this all started about 5 or 6 years ago. I started feeling like someone was always standing over me or watching me. I started sleeping with a pillow placed over my back and my head under my blankets. When I was 17 I moved out of my house with my parents and into a house with a friend and my older cousin. I don't remember too much happening in the house we lived in besides the same; someone is here with me, feeling.
After I moved back in with my parents, I lost my room to one of my sibling so I made my room in our basement. I started hearing little things like a shuffle here or there, my TV would go fuzzy sometimes after I had fallen asleep. I started sleeping with the lights on. When I got pregnant my boyfriend started staying with me, he failed to mention he had heard things too until almost a year later. I then moved into an apartment when my son was a little over a year and the people that lived downstairs from me told us that there was a fire in the house and that a little girl died in there, the landlord told us that was untrue but I always felt a little irk, never the less, we were never harmed, I never saw anything either. It was just a feeling.
We then moved out of that apartment and into another one, and still the irky feeling never went away. When I met my husband he was deployed in Iraq, he came home on leave for two weeks and a few days after he came home, his cousin passed away. The night of the funeral we heard something from the other room and he said the whole night he felt like someone was watching him. We chalked that up to just be his cousin messing around with him.
We were married at the end of January and moved into our house 2 weeks ago. The house is very old. I tried to look up the history of the house, even just when it was built but everything I see it just says built in the 1900s. The only reason I was interested at first was because the basement looks like one out of a scary movie, and while we were putting boxes down there we found an old prescription from 1963.
I have felt the irky feeling since we moved in. Of course all the creakiness is the old flooring and the doors are wobbly the slightest bit of wind makes them open and close. Last night my husband and I were sleeping and we were woken up by our dog, who was growling at something in our room. I'm not sure where he was growling or how long because my husband was the one that woke up to it, normally he is a sound sleeper it takes 2 different alarms to wake him up in the morning, so how the dog woke him up is beyond me. Well neither one of us were able to go back to sleep we heard creaking and footsteps. We turned the lights and the TV on, eventually I fell asleep but he left this morning at 515 for work.
Even as I'm sitting here writing this, I'm freezing and feel like someone is staring at me. I have heard banging like car doors slamming. I'm scared that things are going to escalate and most importantly I'm worried that my son is going to be scared or harmed.
