Hi all, I have written in the past regarding my Father's death and his presence in my life. Well, this time, I do not think he has anything to do with it.
My wife and I have been living in our first apartment for 5 months now. It's a nice place. It is on the first floor, has it's own entrance, and we have a nice little patio. The apartment is just not big enough for us and our dog, soon to be DOGS, so we will be moving when out lease is up in February.
Since we have moved in, my wife has had terrible night terrors and has been awakened by something more times than I can count. She will wake up and scream claiming she saw something standing by the bed or she will jump up and run for the door. (She ran for the door back in April and ran back to bed, all while asleep mind you, and slammed her leg into out bed's foot board. She STILL has a huge welt!)
I certainly believe in ghosts/spirits but I just never saw or heard anything out of the ordinary, so I just assumed it was the stress of the marriage and having our first place. Then, I started seeing things. I would like to say I had willed myself into seeing things but that is not the case. What tends to happen is I will see things moving out of the corner of my eye. Or, I will be in the bathroom in front of the mirror and I swear, I see thing reflected behind me.
There have been a number of occasions that I have been home alone during the day, I have been suffering from some health issues and have been out on leave, and things just don't seem right. Movements and sounds all over... Just odd. I would love to believe it is my illness playing tricks on me or just sounds from the other tenants but I am alert and the walls, floors and ceilings in our complex are solid concrete.
Another thing, our dog Murphy, a Jack/Boston, has been acting very odd. He will bark at invisible things, he gets VERY snippy with us when we try to pick him up... Which he never did before, and he has developed this tremendous fear of heat and smoke. Every time I am cooking or have the oven on, he hides in the computer room and sometimes will relieve himself on the floor. This is all new. And for some reason he will just not relax unless I am in the living room with him. If I am on the computer he will not stay in there with me. But when I go in the living room, he will just sit there.
Yesterday, as an example, I was in the computer room for a good amount of time. He would just walk back and forth until I was done in there. When I finally sat down on the couch, he was so exhausted from walking back and forth he fell asleep... Just odd.
I am looking forward to hearing your comments :)
