I'd like to start by saying that I have lived in my apartment for almost 14 years with my boyfriend. We live above a Harley Davidson Bike Shop that my landlord runs downstairs. There are two apartments upstairs and we rent one of them.
Soon after I moved in I started feeling the bed shaking. In the beginning I thought could that be my own heartbeat being felt. Through the years it has happened so often that I have analysed the "shaking"... It's not a shaking from side to side but rather an up and down motion while I'm lying in bed... No, I'm not sleeping... It's certainly not sleep paralysis... Since most of the time I'm wide awake! And the more my mind thought about what was happening, the more aggressive you could feel the shaking... Almost like whatever it is knows what I'm thinking inside my head. This happened off and on through the years... And by the way, my boyfriend has never felt any of this.
Well, after living here for at least 5 years or more, my landlord told my boyfriend that the prior owner of this building, that her grandson hung himself "downstairs"... (I think this happened roughly 28 years ago)
A little over a year ago, there was a young man renting the other apartment upstairs (next door to my apartment) I didn't really know my neighbour, just a friendly hello or goodbye while passing one another in the hall way... What I did know of him was that He was a United States Veteran and a local volunteer Fire Fighter... He lived as my next door neighbour for only 6 months before he took his own life by shooting himself in the head... I was in such shock over finding this out... How very sad
Now, with all that being said, shortly after the second suicide took place in the building, the poking in my back started. I would be lying in bed watching TV and could feel something poke me in the back... A few weeks later, the poking stopped but then I would feel something pressing down on my body as I lay on my side... I could feel this sensation from the top of my shoulder to my feet, like a cat was on top of me kneading, I could feel the motion cats make by rhythmically alternating their paws... Now it's advanced to causing me to get goose bumps and causes my muscles to twitch... I wake up every day feeling like "it" is stealing my energy.
I'm wondering if "it's" the 2 lost souls... What would they want from me? What can I do to make this all stop?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
