I don't really know if this is a "ghost story" or not. I had a very terrible experience last night and it scared me out of my wits.
My boyfriend and I had a late night last night. It was approximately 3:00am when we decided to go to sleep. His daughter had gone to sleep already after watching a movie with us (nothing scary or disturbing). I slept in my room and he retired to his. She sleeps in the bedroom between ours. I seemed to have some trouble falling asleep and was in and out until I got up around 4:30am to use the bathroom. I went back to bed and I believe I fell back asleep. Now, I don't really remember anything up until I woke up. What I believe I remember is being unable to make any sound... I tried to speak or cry... and really having to force it out. Before I woke up I thought I heard voices and maybe someone being in my room. I also thought that my boyfriend's daughter had stepped into my room asking me if I was ok. It wasn't her though. It was a woman dressed in a white gown and had a luminous glow around her that seemed to be coming from the door of my room. (the door was open) She had her arms outstreched to me and I think she was asking me to go with her. This is when I saw my boyfriend at the door of my room. He told me afterwards he was awoken by what he thought was a child crying/wailing and thought it was his daughter. He checked on her but she was fast asleep. I sat up in bed and had to catch my breath because my heart was racing and I had a great fear about me. My whole body was tense and I felt nauseous because of the nerves in my stomach. I was afraid to go back to bed. My boyfriend sat up with me for a while but my guilt got the best of me and I went back to bed so he could sleep too. I had to take half a mild sedative (which I never do) so I could fall asleep again. No more occurrences happened after that.
Now, I do have to mention some strange things that occurred in and around the same time. Before I went to sleep the first time I thought I had seen about 2 or 3 times some shadows appear out of the corner of my eyes. Nothing was there of course and I just figured it was because I was growing tired. Also, around the time I got up to go to the bathroom, my boyfriend said he heard me and said he saw a shadow look into his room after I turned the light off. He assumed it was me but I didn't go by his room at all. When I went to bed the first time I thought I heard voices and saw dim lights about my door (other than the nightlight out in the hallway). I assumed it was my boyfriend, being unable to sleep, going back to watch television. He said he did not get up again at all... he had fallen asleep right away. And also, when my boyfriend had gotten up to check on his daughter, while he was at her bedroom door he said he had heard someone say in a gravelly low voice "over here Frank". He thought it was me but it wasn't. I thought I heard him speak to me asking me if I was ok but he also said he hadn't spoken. He also told me that he had 3 bad dreams involving the "hag lady" right after I finally went to sleep again. He had this dream before a few years back but it hadn't happened in quite a while.
I don't know what all this means. I don't normally have bad dreams and I don't really remember much of any of my dreams. I haven't experienced any supernatural events that I can recall either. All I know is that everything felt so real... like I wasn't really sleeping.
Am I overreacting because I'm kind of freaked out and I think I've unintentionally freaked my boyfriend and his daughter out too. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
