I have been a stay at home mother for over a year now. We bought and moved into our first home, a (nearly new, only one previous owner who owned it for a couple years) mobile home in a very nice community. I've never, ever heard of a mobile home being haunted! Of course, I do know that land can be haunted.
I have done a little bit of research and found that the 25 years this community has been here, the lot that we currently occupy, has been vacant until our home was put on it in 2002. Which is strange because it's a corner lot and could have easily accommodated a home.
We bought this place in March 2006, I had an uneasy feeling from the first night, like someone was watching me from the hallway. Exactly 1 week after moving in, I gave birth to our (first & only) daughter, who is now 15 months old. About a month later was the first time I heard it, which is when my Husband started working overnights.
I was going to sleep, and at 2:30 AM (going back to bed after my daughter's 1am feeding which is when I started trying to get her to sleep in her own room), I heard LOUD evenly-spaced footsteps of what sounded like boots or heavy type shoes going up and down the hallway to my room. I laid there in my room for about ten minutes listening to it, petrified that someone was in my house. My eyes were glued to the doorway, expecting the person to walk right into my room, then it would go back down the hall then come back. A few minutes after the footsteps dissipated (which I chalked up to tree branches hitting the roof) I was startled again when I heard TWO distinct male voices having a conversation in my living room! It was SOOO clear, like if I had been closer I could hear exactly what they were saying. It sounded like and older male (50s+) and a younger male (20s-30s). As soon as I stepped in the hallway the voices stopped as fast as they appeared.
I looked out all the windows to see if maybe someone was taking a late night stroll around the park. There was absolutely NO ONE around. I also have discovered living here now for a year, that when all of the windows and doors are closed, it's impossible to hear someone speaking outside, unless they are right at the window YELLING, and then, you can only hear them within maybe a 10 foot radius. So, I have been able to dismiss that someone(s) were taking a walk.
After that night, I brought my daughter back into my bedroom, and she stayed there until she outgrew the bassinet at two and a half months old, and went back to sleeping in her own bedroom. A couple weeks later, I heard the footsteps again. Then the next night, the male voices were there AGAIN!
In November, I started getting my hair pulled whenever I was in the kitchen. It was like a playful tug, but it was firm enough for me to whip my head around to see who was doing it. There was NEVER anyone behind me, or even close to me, except once. My husband and I were doing dishes together, and I was washing and he was rinsing (our usual pattern) and there was a hard tug on my ponytail, but it wasn't my husband because he had both hands in the sink! And even IF it had been him, my hair would have been wet because his hands were wet, and it wasn't!
I seriously thought that I was going insane, so I went to a doctor who had now put me on severe anti-anxiety meds (I also have PTSD from childhood sexual abuse that has contributed to a history of anxiety). While the meds have helped deal with my PTSD and anxiety attacks, the voices and footsteps disappeared for a little while. That is when I noticed weird orbs and wisps in about a third of the pictures of my daughter. The best one that I had was lost when my computer crashed two weeks ago (I am so mad!) BUT then got worse!
Around February, I was reading in bed one night, when all of a sudden there was a LOUD "HEY!" right in my ear, I even felt the heat of the breath on my ear and neck! I was home alone (except for my baby who was sleeping in her crib) I was really freaked out, but somehow I managed to finish the book I was reading and went to bed. At 2:30 AM I woke up to loud footsteps STOMPING up and down the hall, that went on for about 2-3 minutes. I eventually was able to fall asleep.
I have heard the loud "Hey" several times since, every time it is followed briefly by the heavy footsteps in the hallway. I haven't had my hair tugged since December though. I have only heard the male voices in the living room a few times since, BUT that is because I am so paranoid that they will wake me up, I have been staying up until 3am to avoid the 2:30AM wake up "HEY" & following disturbances.
I know, that IF it is something, it seems to be mostly residual, so I have nothing to be afraid of. I just don't like getting woken up hearing voices in my living room at 2:30 in the morning, it freaks me out and makes me think someone is in the house.
Any suggestions how I can deal with this (without taking a sleeping pill)? I really, really would appreciate any suggestions, or any comments anyone has.
Thank you all for your time.
