I am a 50 year old female. This is my first story.
For 6 years from 1989 to 1995 I lived in a housing commission unit in Liverpool Sydney, with my daughter aged 2 - 8, single mother. During these 6 years many "ghosty" things happened. I will try to be brief with each of them.
I had many occurrences of things "disappearing", only to find them somewhere strange, the following day usually. I started thinking there is a ghost in this unit, so one day when searching for my cigarette lighter, which was not where it should be, I said out aloud "come on this isn't funny, I need this now please". I turned around and it was on the kitchen bench, right behind me, in plain view, it had not been there before.
Months later, I was at my neighbor's place, their unit front door was directly opposite mine, and we were top floor, so you only came up the steps to there if you were coming to my place or theirs. We both had our front doors open, and I was in their lounge room having coffee with them. Then they had to leave, so one of them and me went to the front door, the other went to get her bag from the bedroom. The lady at the front door, standing next to me, had her front door key in her hand, and she dropped it. She could not see it anywhere, and we were both on hands and knees looking for it, the 2nd neighbor came out and helped to look for it too. It was nowhere to be seen. I suddenly had a flash of a thought through my head, "it is on my kitchen bench". So I said to my neighbor's, "come with me", and they followed me into my unit, to the kitchen bench, and there was a single key on the bench. I asked them if this is their key, and it was.
Later they told me that several times when they had been sitting on the lounge watching tv at night, the photo frame on the same table would fly off the table and land mid floor. It scared them a lot. I told them I have never been scared of this ghost, and you shouldn't be either. They told me that the lady who lived on the ground floor had been seriously slapped on the back while home alone one day. I figured he/she just didn't like her!
One evening, home alone, I was sick with severe stomach cramps, and laying on my side on the lounge in front of the tv. I felt two hands grab me very hard, on my hips (through the lounge) and squeeze. I jumped straight up as it scared me big time. Then I realized all my pains were gone, and I said out aloud "thank you".
One Saturday night I left my daughter at my parents and went to a night club with a girl friend, who then came and stayed the night at my place. We were sitting in the lounge room with the radio on. The radio was at the other end of the (large) lounge room. After a while, it seemed too loud, and just as a joke to scare my girlfriend I said out aloud "could you please turn that down for me", and the radio immediately turned down (a lot). My girlfriend freaked out, so to show her it was ok, I said please turn it up again, and it did. She never stayed over again.
I have more stories from living here, this is only some, and I have had many (maybe 20) experiences like this in my life. I will try to tell more in another post. Thank you for reading.
