Noises, Waking Up With Scars And Feeling A Presence


I recently moved into a bedroom upstairs. It used to be an attic but we converted it into a bedroom. There is now two doors leading to an attic in my room, one right beside my bed and one above my bed. At night time I always hear noises coming from the attic doors, but mainly the one beside my bed. The noises are like there's something hitting off the door. I often hear/feel gush of wind near me or in my room at night. These signs only occur at night time.

One night I heard a girl like scream/laugh/chuckle from the attic door above my bed. I thought I was hearing things, until I heard it 5 or 6 times. I literally was shaking and bawling crying I couldn't move. I had to text my dad to come up to me and I slept downstairs in my old room.

I always feel a presence around me. Especially in this room and a lot of the time when I'm in the shower. I feel like there's someone or something else here with me. I feel all weird and kind of irritated I don't know how to explain it really. I've been feeling this for months and months, like they're watching me.

Last week I woke up with a scar on my wrist that wasn't there when I went to sleep. I don't cut and I don't have a cat that could of possibly done it to me so it really came out of nowhere. Did something do it to me? I have a bathroom also onto my room and sometimes at night the tap would start running randomly or the shower would start dripping

I've mentioned the Illuminati and stuff like that to my mam once or twice but she gave out to me for it saying I shouldn't be on about stuff like that because I don't know what's out there. Does she know something? I also have a holy cross in my room but I, not very religious if that suggests anything? Please inform me as soon as you can and put my mind at ease! I can never sleep anymore and I'm getting terrible sleep. I'm very scared I go to sleep with my heart going 90 and sometimes crying.

hy pinkie, first of all, I want to say that I agree with all of them that you should just move to your old room if you're still being uncomfortable.

But, if I were you, i'll ask my dad to accompany me to check on the attic, like valkricry... Maybe you just had those nocturnal things at your attic (to be truth, even I don't like to go to the attic because there's so dark and dirty and lots of mice etc etc)

I'm a little concern of your story saying "i'm not too religious", ever think about praying for those things to stop?

Well, that's all from me. Cheers!

Hi pinkie99, I go with Val and elnoraemily. They have given you some very good suggestions and options. Please do address them. But don't be afraid because it is not going to help you in anyway. If you are so scared, then it is better to change the bedroom. Try to eliminate the rational possibilities or reasoning. Then we can switch to paranormal. Be bold.

Kindly keep us posted of any further developments/information.

Regards and respects to you.

I read your story and I feel same as Deanwinchester's comment says... You can make your mind/ train your mind. Dont be afraid. If I was you, I would share it with the person I trust the most & vice-a-verse (for eg. My best-friend) And we both together will try to research and find out what's wrong... And then even try to correct it. Don't lose hope... Till the time your mind is clear about your room, try to avoid staying there for long time. Take some action ASAP and you will do it alright.
Good luck

I think you should do some research on you're house and see if anything happened in that specific room. If you are feeling watched in your room, or anywhere put a circle of salt around yourself or wherever you are. I keep salt in my room just as superstition. If you research you're house and something happened I think you should get a priest to come and bless the house. If anything serious happens, then maybe you should try to contact the spirit or spirits in you're house. Just don't use a ouji board.

Hey pinkie, read your story. Three questions. 1st. For how Long this attic of yours was unattended? 2nd. Did you investigate from were are the noises coming from before coming into a conclusion? 3rd. Did you renovate this attic or the leaking tap of yours is there from the very beginning? Answer these then I'll tell you what I think about it. Cheers.

"... I literally was shaking and bawling crying I couldn't move. I had to text my dad to come up to me and I slept downstairs in my old room." -If you couldn't move, how did you manage to text? 😕

Anyway, I agree with Valkricry and elnoraemily, better move back to your old room and -have a good night! 😉

The Illuminati was an old group of scientists hiding from the old Catholic Church a few hundred years ago. They have long since died out, but the conspiracy came around because of a fictional Dan Brown book. Not really relevant to what you are experiencing. Your mother is probably just saying that so you won't worry yourself over that.

The problem with attics is that they often have open vents to the outside where sound and wind can come through. Don't worry about the wind sounds because that is pretty normal, sweetie.
Do you have any neighbors or live near a busy street? That could potentially explain why you were hearing laughter.

As for your wrist, it's possible you scratched yourself in your sleep or even knocked against something the day before and did not notice it. I bruise easily and often wake up with bruises from kicking myself while moving during the night.

Also, attics can have a lot of wiring in them. You should test the electric field of that room. If the wiring is not properly sealed, it can give off so much of this energy that it makes people feel nervous and unsettled and can even cause hallucinations at high enough levels- especially if the person is sensitive to that sort of energy. An electrician can test for it and you can purchase a meter that will read the levels. The higher the number, the worse that anxious feeling will be.

If these things don't explain or the electronic field is not found to be high, I would switch back to your other room until a source for it can be found.

If you get scared, try to distract yourself. Put on some soothing music, listen to a funny comedian or put on a cheerful movie. Focusing on it will only make that unsettling feeling worse because you will be expecting something to happen. If you expect it to happen, you may misconstrue normal sounds and happenings.

pinkie, first, I'm sorry that you're afraid. I don't blame you, but there could be explanations for what is happening. You say these happenings occur only in the night, perhaps you have some nocturnal critters in the attic. They can make some rather odd sounds. I once nearly wet myself out of fear, because I could hear a dirty old man's laughter, at a time I knew I was alone. This went on for nearly a week, and I nearly quit my job over it. I'd investigate, but never found anyone. Long story short, my 'dirty old man' turned out to be nothing more than a poor pigeon. He could not fly, so had made himself down a home down in a window well. The walls of the wells, echoed his coo. Couple that with the weird silence a 'dead' building has... Yep, peeing myself over a pigeon... The point is, perhaps you should mention to your dad that you've been hearing odd sounds coming from the attic and wonder if you've gotten mice or something. Then dad will go investigate. If nothing else, it will rule out critters in the attic. Mention the tap to him too, it could be a loose valve or something.
The gush of wind you feel, possibly a draft? In older homes sometimes a draft can only be felt/heard when the wind blows from a certain direction.
The scar on your wrist - do you mean a scar or a scratch? Scars don't usually appear overnight, but scratches are another story. You might have scratched yourself in your sleep, or on something near/in your bed. If it is indeed a scar, it's possible (if it's small) that it's one you've had a long time and just never noticed. It happens.
If you are terribly uncomfortable in your bedroom, perhaps you should see if you can move back to your old room.
