Right to start off with I have yet to form an opinion on the paranormal... Is it real or not I can't say for sure... But lately I've noticed strange things happening around me.
My first unusual experience was when I was a teenager. It was a night like any other; I went to sleep as usual... But for some reason I woke up at about 3:15 in the morning. My room had an armchair facing the bed, and I could swear a man was sitting in it staring at me. I asked who it was with no reply and scooted along my wall to turn on the light, but when I did nobody was there. This unnerved me for a while until I just seemed to forget about it. Then about 3 years later I was speaking with my mother and sister about this incident and it seems they both have seen the same man, wearing the same vest in our bedrooms at different addresses and different times. None of us had ever spoken about this until then so this was very unusual. I haven't seen this man since.
Now I don't know if this is connected but lately (approx. 4 years later) I feel unsettled at night. I have been asked by the people living with me what the banging and scratching coming from my room at night is (nearly on a daily basis). Also when I walk into rooms around the house objects just seem to move or fall over for no reason at all. I am having a lot of trouble sleeping no matter how tired I am, but if I do get to sleep I always wake up between 3:00-4:00 and my bedroom is extremely cold. I also could swear I heard someone talking in my ear whilst I was lying down and their breath on my face. My friend in the room next to me has also heard footsteps coming from the kitchen, up the stairs and stop when they reach my bedroom door. He thought it was me but I am certain it isn't.
I don't know if all this can be explained away... All I know is at the moment I'm very worried if it is something paranormal. Can someone help shed some light on this for me? If it is paranormal, what could it be? Is it trying to scare me or tell me something?
I am very unnerved by these events; if it is paranormal what can I do to help stop it?
