I'm new here, but I would say that I'm not new to the paranormal. Since I was quite young I have had a large number of strange unexplainable feelings and experiences that I cannot even begin to recount. But recently things have been happening to me personally (in the past it's been observations... Seeing things or hearing things, but it never felt as if whatever I was seeing was trying to communicate with me), and frankly it is beginning to worrying me.
So, these are the two stories I would like to share with you all today. Any advice or answers or comments will be greatly appreciated.
Recently I have been having a lot of trouble sleeping. Two nights ago, I was taking my dog outside to go to the bathroom at around 3am, and I was still fully awake at the time. Nothing was out of the ordinary at first, but then my dog stopped still and sat down, making a faint whining sound. This was not entirely unusual for him, so I didn't pay it much attention and walked forward, telling him to hurry up and do his business.
I noticed it was cold out, which is certainly odd for Florida at this time of year. But again, I wrote it off, since I knew there had been a storm that day and thought maybe it had just brought cold air. A couple minutes later, I noticed the form of a person standing near the man-made pond diagonally left from my house. I squinted my eyes to see better, thinking maybe it was one of my neighbors was outside. It seemed the person was staring at me, though I could see no eyes or specific facial features, I felt I was being watched. But as I walked forward to inspect further, it disappeared.
Now, I'm not positive it was something paranormal... But something just didn't feel right about the whole thing, so I just thought I'd share it here.
But on another topic, I could use some help. My problem as of late is that I sometimes wake up with scratches, cuts, and swollen bites (like insect bites). I have checked every possible explanation, and I can't find anything that could be causing it. Just to be sure I wasn't out of my mind, I invited my friend over to my house about a month ago to spend the night. She and I slept in the same room, and I woke up with small swollen bites and scratches on my arms and back, but she was not scratched or bitten. I don't understand. What is happening to me? I mean, I've felt things weren't always right in this house before, but this is the first time anything like this has happened. I should say in the interest of full disclosure, that I have heard strange things and seen figures in my house before, but as I said at the beginning of this message, I never felt before that they were trying to harm me or communicate with me.
Strange occurrences like this have become common themes lately for me, and I'm not scared, but I am confused and a little worried. What is going on? And will it get worse?
