Hello my name is Mel, and what I'm about to tell you has been happening for over half a year. I live in a small town. And a few years ago my parents recently moved to this small town. I sleep in a VERY small room. It actually was a home-office. I've been sleeping in there for around 4 years. I used to be able to sleep soundly with my night-light off.
Some time after my 13th birthday I started getting this feeling that something was watching me. I have always believed in ghosts. But now it feels odd. Like something is watching me... 1 foot away from my bed. Just starring down. This only happens in my room. Usually at night. When I'm getting ready to sleep. I can no longer sleep with out some type of light. So now I sleep with my TV on.
I also feel as if something is watching me when I'm home alone. Again, only in my room. Sometimes it's so bad that I cant even enter my room when I'm home alone. I often feel this way in my room, almost anytime whenever I enter my room. Which scares me.
Another thing that scares me is that sometimes my dog will play with me, then seconds later, run out the house barking like a crazy maniac dog-thing. And for no reason, hell just turn and bark and run out our doggy door. Also, sometimes at night it sounds as if something might be in our attic. But I'm not sure, it might just be rats. Also, if its night time, I cant leave my room once I'm inside it. Because once I open my door I see the window that shows outside (sadly we don't have blinds for it). Every time I open my door at night (rarely), I keep picturing some guy with a shotgun staring at me. It scares me so much, even though I know its just in my mind. No matter how hard I try, I only picture that guy. That also scares me, because around this town there's often people shooting guns.
To this very day, I still get the feeling something is watching me. Sometimes it feels like its going to hurt me. Or its telling me to get out. And sometimes it feels as if its just watching, smiling (which still creeps me out), and waiting in the corner of my room. I feel as if one day I may see the ghost. As if I'll just turn around and it'll be there. Starring at me. And of course, I would scream and run out. The only way I'm getting through this feeling is because I have 2 dogs to protect me.
Any idea if I'm just paranoid? Or maybe I really am being watched... But by what? Could it possibly be a demon? Or just a family member that died long ago? Or just some ghost? A person did just recently die in this town. Could it be him?
Please help me. I am very scared at this point. I can hardly look into a mirror because I'm afraid I might see a ghost of some sort. I haven't done anything that could make a ghost want to haunt me. No ouija boards. No ghost books. I never tried talking to the dead. Is it just me being paranoid?
