This is the 1st time I'm sharing my story here. Someone helped me find this site and after some contemplation, I have decided to type this story here. The 2 incidents that I'm going to share took place some time ago now. I also have to let you know that I'm not the biggest believer of paranormal stuffs. As I've grown older, I've also grown skeptic about these things. So, I don't immediately jump to the conclusion that anything is paranormal related. I try to find other reasons. For these two incidents however, I haven't been able to find any rational or proper explanation.
So on to the experiences. Both of these incidents took place in my current apartment, where I have been living for 2 years with my family. For a month everything was fine. Then one day, I had some kind of thought or for lack of better words, something clicked and then, things started. Most things were easy to ignore, rationalize or forget. But these 2 incidents worry me a little.
The first one happened in June, on a Sunday night. I will have to explain the lighting situation in my room. I have 2 types of lights in my room. 1 is the main light, the other is my night light. I don't enjoy sleeping in the dark, so the night light helps with the issue. It stays on during the night, while I sleep, the main light stays off. I also have the habit of waking up at around midnight hours or say anytime from 12-2 am, to drink water and use restroom.
On this Sunday night, I went to bed at around 11 pm, as usual and as usual I woke up at around 1 am to use the restroom and also get myself a glass of water. I got up, switched my main lights on and did my business, returned, drank some water, made myself comfortable, locked my door, switched off the main light and went back to sleep. The only light that remained on was the night light. I remember cause it took me a few minutes to fall back asleep. Now, in the morning when I woke up, I felt something was off. Then I realized that the main light that I had switched off, was on. It confused me. I remember switching it off but it was on. I tried to rationalize that perhaps I forgot but I remember, locking my door and then switching the main light off. I tried to rationalize that maybe I sleepwalked. The problem with that is that I have never sleepwalked, not even as a child. I'm an adult now. I don't have any medical issues. As puzzled as I was, I decided to let it go. No point in wasting my time on it.
Then something else happened on Wednesday, a few days after the 1st incident. For context, this house is not old. It's still relatively new. It's not falling apart. We would not move in if that were the case.
On Wednesday, I was home alone. I was preparing for my classes after having made myself food and cleaning the dish. I cleaned the dish. Turned the faucet off and went to wait for my classes to begin. After sometime, I heard water running. I was a bit confused and decided to ignore it but just couldn't. So, I went to check. There in the kitchen, the tap was running, faucets on both sides fully on, the water was gushing and the floor was completely wet. The tap albeit a bit old, isn't a mess of rust and falling apart. It's perfectly fine. The plumbing is fine too. That tap had never done that and has not done so since.
What is more confusing is that the floor was wet enough that I thought that the water over filled and spilled from the sink. The sink however was not full. There was very little water pooling at the bottom of the sink. The cabinets below were not wet either. They were in fact dry. The floor however looked like a bucket of water had been spilled. The sink is big enough that it catches the water, the water doesn't go to the floor, even if it did, I'm sure the cabinets would be at list a little wet, but as I said, they were completely dry. I again rationalized that maybe it was a faulty tap or that I forgot to turn it off. Cleaned the mess up and just tried to forget about it.
I'm coming to terms with it as time has passed but, I just want to stop it before it escalates any further. This is maybe the 1st physical activity. After moving to this apartment I have also been having nightmares and sleep paralysis episodes almost on a daily basis, after the 1st month. The only time that I had one was when I was in my early teens because I decided to watch a horror movie I wasn't ready for. And nightmares were also only from horror movies or if I was sick. Just child stuff, nothing disturbing.
The nightmares I have now are disturbing most of the time. Anyone who shares the room with me, will have a sleep paralysis episode at least once during the stay. I don't think these are stress related as they began before my stressful student life ever began. Even then, my life is regular, the only stress I have is when we have projects and assignments. Even then it's not a big deal.
Can someone help me with perhaps finding it's origin and putting an end to it? Thank you.
