I'm not very good at telling stories by writing them, but I will try my best to describe what happened without rambling on too much.
My husband and our two children moved into our newly purchased home approximately three years ago. We were so excited and absolutely loved it. I had been very sick since 1991 but essentially was sort of in remission (from MS). I still had a lot of bad days, but I was functioning. (I had been walking with Canadian Crutches; from foot drop, etc.)
When we moved into our home, everything was fine for about maybe a month. My health took a severe turn for the worst and I eventually ended up in bed about 95 percent of the time. During this time we started seeing a dark small in stature shadow (child sized). I guess I had seen it mostly in the beginning out of the corner of my eye kind of thing... Then I began seeing it all the time in my bedroom instead of in the living room downstairs and between the kitchen and dining room area. I thought at first that I was the only person to see it and didn't mention it for a long time. Then my husband and 15year old at the time daughter mentioned it and also feeling a difference in the temperature in rooms where they saw it.
My husband began to get concerned because we started seeing it more and more and during this time I actually was starting to look like the life was being drained out of me literally! My cheeks were beginning to sink in and eyes. I was already a size 2 and was loosing more and more weight, especially in my face. But, my health wasn't according to the doctor's any worse... What I mean is that I wasn't dying... Like I actually looked.
This went on for two years and we didn't think much about the shadow for a while, but then around September of 2007 I wasn't able to get out of bed at all! And I started having dreams (what I thought were dreams) and this child like shadow would be SCREAMING into my face and its face was horrible! All I saw was all this black surrounding the body part and surrounding the face, and the face was this awful disfigured elongated face with a mouth that opened up so big... It looked like when this thing was screaming at me that the mouth could swallow me up. It scared me so much that I was shaking violently. I tried to scream but nothing would come out of my mouth.
My husband woke up because he said that he thought I was choking. He heard me gasping. It finally got to the point that my husband didn't want to take any chances if something was really draining the life out of me (because it seemed like the sicker I was getting... The entity or whatever it was... Was getting stronger... Being seen more and more and it were visiting me more and more at night).
My husband without telling me at first started looking for a place for us to move. In August of 2008, he found a house in another town over an hour away near his Sister and moved us all out of the house. We are in the process of loosing the home we owned, but still legally own it until the foreclosure paperwork starts. We have yet to receive anything from the Mortgage Company on when that may be.
When my husband had decided to move us to another home; we were financially drained from my doctor bills, medications, utilities, etc. And didn't have the money to pay for a mover, etc. My husband and my daughter were the only ones to help pack up the things in the house and tried to move everything out by themselves. About a month or so later when my husband put me into the car to take me back over to our old house so that I could tell him what else to bring to the new house I started to shake when we got near the house. Now you need to know that during the previous two weeks before he took me over to the old house; we had already been living in the new home and I was immediately feeling better. When I walked into the old house I got so weak and got the all over sick feeling like I had been feeling during the last two years.
I have not been back to that house.
Now it has been approximately 6 months that we've been living in our new place. I still have my normal bad days here and there but I've been doing a lot better. We have not felt anything in this home and you could even say that when you walk into this home there is no heaviness felt like in the other home.
(I don't know if this is related to it or this is something completely new or heck maybe I'm now going CRAZY!)
Then...Last week we noticed that the attic storage door in our bedroom walk in closet was pushed up and moved over. My husband is 5'10" and could barely reach it to close it when he got our Dining Room chair to stand on. Now our Dining Room chairs are not your normal height. They have longer legs like barstool height. We even had our soon to be Son-In-Law come over and get on the roof of the house to see if possibly someone had tried to get into the house from a vent on the top of the house into the storage part... But no one could have. Plus, we have 3 dogs and 4 little cats. We still have no idea how this door got opened up. It was closed since we moved into the home.
January 12th - After my husband and I went to bed we were laying there in the dark talking and laughing about something our little daughter had done earlier that evening, and my husband and I both heard a sound that made us both stop talking at the same time. It sounded like a female humming. It was coming from the far left corner of our bedroom. (Outer wall of the house)
I said to him "Did you hear that"? He said yeah and then said to me "Shhhh" to listen again and then again we both heard it. We sat there listening for another 5 to 10 minutes and then nothing. Now the only other person in the house was our little 6 year old daughter and her bedroom is on the other side of the house and she was asleep. One of our dogs and 2 of our cats were in my daughter's room with the door closed. Our other little dog and the other 2 cats were on our bed. My big dog was lying on the floor next to me on the floor sound asleep. No one could have been in our yard near the window because we have an 8 ft. Privacy Gate that you can't get into unless you cut the chain to get in. I guess we will never know what it was...
Then Last night on January 13th - I went to bed around 9:30 P.M. Along with my husband. During my sleep I felt the weight of someone sitting down beside me up near my shoulder/head area. Then I felt these large hands grab my left hand and the only hands I've ever felt this large we my father's...thinking I must be dreaming of my father I thought to myself I must being dreaming of my father.
Then either in my dream or in reality (At this point I don't know which); I open my eyes and see this very large man sitting where I felt the weight of someone sitting down and saw that he was grasping my hand. I tried to scream and scream, but absolutely nothing would come out. I was so afraid and this man was laughing at me because I couldn't scream! It was not a nice laugh either... It was more like a menacing laugh. Anyway, I then tried to speak and the words were crackling... But I managed to say "who are you"? He leaned over and whispered into my hear "LEON SCHNEIDER".
I wasn't sure I had heard the name right and again said "WHO"? He leaned over again and said the name in deeper whisper "LEON SCHNEIDER". I have no idea who this person would be, I have never heard that name before, and I have never seen this person in my life! I felt so much fear and started to shake. I tried to reach over to nudge my husband to wake him up because for some reason I wasn't able to scream. Finally, I was able to move enough to use one finger to poke my husband in the side. But, he didn't wake up.
I tried repeatedly to say my husband's name; nothing came out again. After what seemed like forever, I finally in a very strained voice got my husband's name out about 3 times and eventually he woke up. I was all of a sudden free to move and talk and then began to SCREAM! I could not stop shaking! I sat up and told my husband everything that had happened. My whole body was cold as ice. I couldn't stop shaking and at this point I didn't want to close my eyes again! I have had dreams and even nightmares before and never have been as scared as this had made me before. Even when that entity of whatever it was kept coming to me. My husband said I should do a search on this name. But I have no idea why I would have a name whispered into my ear and then to remember in detail what this person looked like and remember his voice, remember the size of his hands, and to remember the name he said?
If anyone has had anything like this happen to them or if anyone knows if this means anything... Please let me know. Even now when I think about what happened it scares me. This really isn't normal for me; I don't usually remember anything in detail from my dreams. I may wake up and think oh that was a nice dream and remember some of it... But then a few minutes later the whole thing is a blank to me.
