I am combining a lot of different experiences to save writing, I guess. When I talk to people about these things, people look at me like I am a nut.
To set up part of the story, my grandmother passed away last year and so did my husband's. I was woken up about 3 in the morning with a severe burning in my nose. It was the very strong smell of laundry detergent. At first, I couldn't figure out what the smell was but the next day, I happened to be doing laundry and smelled the detergent and that was it. I didn't do clothes the past few days, so I know it wasn't just lingering in the house. I also looked on the floor beside my bed and there were green flashing lights.
I have a had a lot of experiences with noises. One night, there were three knocks on the wall coming from the other room (no one stays in there), moving down the wall (as if someone was walking and knocking one knock), then the floor popped inside my room. I hear knocks on the door sometimes and I open the door, it isn't my kids because they are sound asleep. I asked if someone was there and to show me a sign and a plastic model in my room fell over. Do you think it is my grandmother trying to contact me? Someone said my name and help me one time, a female voice. My husband thinks I am crazy but everything seems to happen when he is asleep and I get woken up by something.
My husband's dog passed away before I moved in and we got married, and I hear a dog collar tinkling and something "sniffing" at me, sometimes, too. He doesn't believe in these things but I know I am not imagining it.
I also had a friend pass away when I was a teenager, and the night she passed away I was lying on the couch and I heard a noise, like someone shuffling their feet across the floor. Years later, I heard the noise again when my then husband was being abusive to me.
And when I was a kid, after my grandfather died, someone sat on the end of my bed. I felt my feet move down, as if someone was making an indention. That was scary.
Am I crazy? What do you think these things are?
