I have never believed in ghosts or spirits or anything of that nature, but lately my mind has been changing. Since my roommates moved in around the end of August, I have periodically been seeing a shadow person. I have lived in the basement of this house for over 5 years and this shadow person only showed up this fall.
Anyway, I live in the basement, and my roommates live upstairs. They have said they have felt a presence in the house as well, but have never seen too much of anything. I, however, have seen the distinct shadow of a tall, skinny man several times in my area of the house and every time I see him, I first feel complete fear and panic.
The first time I saw him he was standing by the water heater watching me as I walked towards my bathroom. When I looked over at him for a second he was gone... A couple days later I was in bed and had my lamp on. I looked over to the far corner of my room because I felt scared that someone was in my room or watching me, and sure enough, he was standing still watching me from the corner. Then I didn't see him for a while. But a couple months later I saw him standing on the stairs which go down to the basement again just watching me, I didn't see him again for a couple more months.
Most recently I looked up from bed and I saw him standing by the foot of my bed just watching me. And then he disappeared. I'm not sure who he is or why he is watching me or why I am the only one who sees him in the house. I thought that he might be my grandfather, because I know my grandfather was tall and skinny. So today, I was walking down to the basement to go to the freezer and I could sense something again so I said, "If this is Grandad, I say hello!" and as I turned on the light, it flashed brightly, flickered and then went out, Which was strange because I had changed that light bulb recently.
I was wondering if this could be a sign that it is, in fact, my grandfather, or if that was just a coincidence? I was also wondering why this shadow person only showed up when my roommates moved in and why he only comes around me?
Oh also, I found it interesting that my cats seem to react to the shadow person. But they are not afraid or angry. They seem to rub against him or try and play with him, Which I can only see as a good sign.
I really just wanted to share my story and see if anyone has any advice on what to do!
