In searching for a hotel for another trip to the French Quarter, I almost fainted when I read the story from the girls trip entitled Our Hotel Stay Off Toulouse In New Orleans y Erte4879, because it confirmed what I felt while there with my gal friends.
Being that I have friends in New Orleans, a great deal of my time was visiting with them and not the usual tourist trips with my travel buddies. Therefore, I was alone in our two-story suite a lot of our five days there. The entire stay I felt uneasy. Immediately I told the others I would be sleeping on the downstairs sofa, because the upstairs just did not feel right. I saw nothing, but felt the presence of others all through the suite and knew something did not want me there. It is difficult to explain, as I heard no actual voices, yet I clearly "heard"/"felt" the "Don't come in here"s, "You shouldn't be here"s, "Go away"s, "We don't want you here"s, and things of this nature.
One night I returned to the empty suite and as I started to walk up the stairs to the bathroom, I could feel them warning me that I really should not go up there. I was so frightened as I approached mid-way I could hardly move, as I turned and ran down the stairs. I knew I was so unwanted and I was so frightened that I ran outside, used the lobby restroom and sat outside until my friends returned. The remainder of the stay the feelings continued and I made sure I never went upstairs alone. On the last day after taking my shower and began to exit the bathroom, all the warnings were repeated. Thank God there was a balcony off the bath and I actually had to yell to the court yard and ask a friend to come help me down.
On that last day I shared my 'experiences' with the other four only to learn that two others had similar feelings. Again, only those who have experienced this type of thing can understand - how although nothing was spoken, so much was said. Needless to say I have since always chosen other hotels on other streets.
I know this sounds unbelievable, but today when I first was reading the above article, my screen went black, then blue with the 'your computer message that due to a fatal error in my systen my computer was shutting down'. I swear on my family's graves this is so true.
