I am new to this website and found it because I was looking up hauntings and I would like some advice on whether I have a ghost in my home or not...
My boyfriend and I live in an old house in the historical centre of an old town in Sardinia. Everything was fine when we first moved in (I should point out that we rent our house), but over the last few months strange things have started happening. The strange things normally happen when I'm home alone.
First it started with the lights in our house flickering, again I would be in the house by myself. (My boyfriend and I work in aviation so we work shifts which is why I'm home alone a bit.) I put down to old wiring as our house is over 100-years-old. Then after a few months of this, I would be getting up earlier (0400) and I would find all the taps downstairs on, there is no reason for this.
This has been going on randomly for a while, normally when I'm home alone. One morning I woke up and I had two scratches on the upper part of my right leg. I have no idea to this day how I got them. I ignored this, although I will admit I was freaked out. (I have a picture of the scratches but don't know how to upload) so I carried on as per normal.
But tonight (I'm home alone again) I went to the upstairs to go to bed and I could hear what I can only describe as groaning coming from the bathroom, which scared me as I had no rational explanation for it and I was too scared to go in and see what it might be.
I have spoken to my boyfriend about what is happening, but he is very much a seeing or experiencing is believing sort of person and nothing seems to happen when he is around, but he cannot be around all the time.
I know my story isn't thrilling, but I would like some information as to what could be happening and how to deal with it. Is my house haunted?
