My Dad Became Ill


I have shared my experience My Parents House with you all previously, and now I want to share my dad's experience in that place (as you all know that house was built by my great grandfather at Mumbai in 1936.) Please note that my dad is a staunch non believer in ghosts, spirits or anything called supernatural.

On 15th May 2002, we all were sleeping in our respective rooms i.e my parents in their bedroom and me and my brother shared the same room until that time. Our beloved dog 'Sholie' would sleep anywhere he wanted. On that particular day, he was sleeping in the living room. Suddenly our whole household woke up hearing our dog barking for no reason. We all rushed out thinking it to be some kind of robbery, but it was not so. He was barking looking at one corner of the house and even had convulsions. We all rushed to his help and knew he needed a doctor whereas my dad thought it was just because of a calendar put up in that particular corner and the movements it was making because of the fan above. Eventually he removed it.

On the next morning my dad couldn't get up from his bed and was running high temperature. Finally he was admitted to the hospital, and from there onwards he could stand on his feet only after one year. He became so ill that my mom was even told that he might live for a few hours. Doctors could not diagnose what exactly had happened. But whatever that was, wasn't funny at all. Maybe negative energy or something, what do you think?

OMG! Your dog's untimely barking was a clear indication that something is not right. No wonder your father fell prey to the negativity that too for one whole year.

Hope he is in great spirits like you today.

I think there might have been some ghost kind of something... Because the pets usually can see the ghost and other things which are invisible to us...

I think it could be a sign that in the future your dad was going to get ill soon. What ever that thing was it was warning you in away. 😐

Dear anu,

I am sorry that your dog and later your dad were greatly affected by this great paranormal experience. I am also very sorry that your poor, sweet dad became gravely ill and the doctors did not know why. I hope he has since recovered and regained his good health and will live to a ripe old age and to see all his great-grandchildren. I pray that all will better for you and yours, and that this will not happen again. May you and yours be protected, at peace and be well, always. Thank you for sharing your ghost story with me, --Abby

well I really don't know what to say about your situation except I am very sorry about your father. Maybe your dad is just sick and there is no explanation for it or maybe your thoughts are right? Who can really say for sure. I do hope that things start to look up for you and your family though. Best of wishes. 😊
