In October of this year, my parents and I moved from our family home into a tiny little rancher that I am currently living in now. The house was quite a lot smaller than what I was used to, and with this being my first time moving, I was naturally a little nervous and couldn't shake the overwhelming eerie feeling I would get while in my new room, especially from my closet. The house itself wasn't creepy at all, it had a huge open living room, 2 small bedrooms, a pink bathroom and a kitchen and laundry room that looked like it jumped right out of the 70's. It didn't take long for me to settle right in, despite the uncomfortableness in my room.
Not long after, my boyfriend had moved in with us and we had just finished setting up the last of our things. This is when I first started to notice the presence. At first I could only really feel it when I was alone in my room, but eventually it would progress to me feeling like I was being watched in the living room, kitchen, or even while I was outside having a smoke. Almost every night I would wake up out of a deep sleep for no reason and just stare blankly at the space behind my door or at my closet door. These were still fairly new surroundings to me, so I took it as a sign of me being paranoid and didn't pay much attention to it after that.
I am not sure if ignoring the fact that something was there angered it, but not long after that I began to feel extremely threatened for no reason. I would be walking through the house at night and the sudden urge to run would come over me, almost as if I was being followed or even chased to my room. The worst was when I was having a shower and I could feel a presence standing in the tub with me. The fear got so bad I was reluctant to even have a shower, and was tempted to ask my boyfriend to sit in the bathroom with me every time. There was one night when my boyfriend and I had just fallen asleep, when I was woken up fairly abruptly. I had my face buried into his back, which meant my back was facing my closet door. This paralyzing fear washed over my entire body suddenly and I kept repeating in my head "Don't look at it. DO NOT look at it." The room began to feel very heavy and the next thing I knew I was bawling my eyes out, completely terrified. I couldn't get rid of the feeling that something bad was going to happen, and that scared me all the more. I don't know how, but I knew that once I turned a light on "it" would go away. But in order for me to do that I needed to turn around and face my closet, but my head kept repeating "DO NOT LOOK AT IT." Luckily the lamp by my bed has an extended switch that I have wrapped around the headboard, so in one quick motion I was able to roll over and flip the switch on all without opening my eyes. As soon as the light hit the room, the heaviness was gone although I was still shaken with fear, I laid there for the rest of the night just crying.
Since that night things haven't been as bad, but they haven't gone away either. Now I'm starting to catch shadows in my room and living room with nothing there to possibly cast it. I'm still woken up on a regular basis during the night by absolutely nothing. When I am feeling negative or having a bad day I do notice the presence a lot more. I have not physically seen anything, nor have I heard things (whispers, footsteps, etc.) and as far as I know, I am the only one in the house who has been experiencing anything. I have had my fair share of experiences with spirits in life, but nothing that has ever scared me or made me feel threatened, up until I moved into my new house. I am worried that I may have attracted the attention of someone or "something" I do not want around me. I will not lie, but this experience has left me slightly unnerved and I don't really have anybody I can talk to about situations like this which is why I thought about this site. If anybody is experiencing something similar or can offer any help or insight it would be greatly appreciated.
