Scared To Sleep


When I was about 5 years old when I first seen her we lived in a house from I believe the 40's. My mom grew up in this house and she never experienced anything. When it first happened I was in the basement with my dad he was looking at baseball cards and I was colouring on the floor right next to him. Where I was sitting was a wicker bench, in the corner of my eye I seen a little girl in a white night gown. She was about the same age and had long brown hair. I didn't do anything I just kept colouring but I could still see her.

The next time I seen her was a few months later I woke up in the middle of the night and she was sitting at the end of my bed just starting at me. She never talked she would just look at me I didn't know what to do so I just went back to bed. I never saw her again.

My other experience was when I was in elementary school; I could never sleep at night so I would be the only one awake. One night I finally fell asleep and I woke up out of the blue to what I thought was my dad watching TV. So I tried to fall back asleep but the TV was so loud I decided to go down stairs to tell my dad to turn it down. When I went down the stairs to find that my dad wasn't down there and the TV wasn't on. I got so scared I ran up the stairs and hid under my covers until morning. I never knew what it was.

My last experience in this house was that every night I could hear people walking in the kitchen it was in the same place every time. My mom always told me that it was just the house but it always sounded like someone walking around.

I was scared to sleep... People said I had sleep paralysis.

But I didn't believe it... I used to wake up with shadows around my bed! I couldn't move scream or sometimes close or open eyes! I aways heard this weird noise... Then all of the sudden I could move... It felt like I was being restrained and like something was keepimg me from speaking... I learned it was low level spirits either killed themselves or just died evil that tried to possess me... Its real don't doubt it... Its real... If you think its all made up... Then if it ever happens to you then don't be supprised and blow it off its real. The devil has so many tricks that even can closely relate to disorders

Don't try to comunicate with the ghost 😢 Because that's like letting the ghost think its okay to haunt you. SO just leave em alone untill/unless they do somthing bad 😁

[at] Vanessa: Explain 'fugdeouliscouisly'? 😐

[at] hillary81112, I can see how you would feel scared. Girls in white nightgowns and long black/brown hair seem to be a constant vision people see, I'm not sure what it's about. But it is eerie.

About the TV being on, that creeped me out a bit as it has happened to me a couple of times, maybe it's just ringing in the ears.

People walking in the kitchen... You wouldn't have a pet dog/cat by any chance have you?

As far as the walking around part I know how you feel I used too hear walking around at night in my house when I was little. I heard this walking around noise up on until I turned 8 that when I started praying I was christian then and I bet I could say the our father prayer faster than any kid I knew at the time and every night after my prayers I would quickly add and don't let me have any bad dreams or nightmares. The thing is they could not have been bad dreams or nightmares like my parents called them because I was awake for them. My parents put me to bed early but, I always stayed up reading or just playing in my room I was a night owl then and I'm a night owl now lol. I liked your story reminds me of myself when I was little but I never saw who was walking late at night while everyone was asleep it always ended with me screaming and running into my parents room and jumping into their bed. Thank you for you story.
