It started when I was 8.
It was the middle of the summer, and I was lying in bed, it was about 2:00 or 3:00 in the morning and I couldn't sleep. It felt like I was awake for hours, when I started to get the feeling someone was watching me, so I looked over at my sister and she was asleep. And there was no-one else in the room as it was a box room. I heard whispering and giggling.
I sat up in my bed and looked and looked but couldn't find anything or anyone. Suddenly my blanket went flying off me. I sat in shock for what felt like minutes but it was of course only a second, and I started hammering on the wall screaming for my mother but there was no sound coming out of my mouth. She came running in and grabbed me; she said it was a nightmare, so I told her I was awake most of the night. I thought she wouldn't believe me, but it turned out that stuff was happening to one of my brothers too.
Some years later I was pregnant with my first child and I ended up staying in the same room this night. I woke to the sound of the door opening and closing. I felt someone rub my hair as if to comfort me; it didn't scare me at all. What scared me was the girl standing at the door in a lovely lace nightgown, at first I thought it was my little sister so I told her to get back into bed, but she was asleep next to me.
Several other things had happened in that house with several of my family members and friends over the years. I will talk about them another time if you like.
I now live at my own place with my husband and kids, and the fear is back, and someone is watching me again and this time it's starting to affect one of my sons. He tells me there's a man in his room at night that sings to him. He is 7 years old so I no he can't be making it up.
Whatever it is, it's attached to me and my family members, does anyone think it's dangerous or could get nasty and violent? I would love to read your comments or help if you have any. All is welcome. Thanks.
