There has been so much going in this apartment. We have lived here for 5 years and lately so many things have been happening. It seems that there are many more incidents and that it has escalated. My daughter and I used to sit in my bed to watch TV. Several times we would feel something knock against the bed as if it was under the bed. The cat was asleep so it wasn't the cat. I have heard footsteps when no one was about and they seem to stop before I can see who it might be. About a year ago, I felt something put its arms around my waist while I was sleeping. I could feel their warmth. That wasn't so scary but it was weird and very unsettling.
In the past year or two, sometimes my bedroom fan will work fine and other times it makes noises and drags and won't speed up. Our stove started ticking about 2 weeks ago like the timer might have been stuck. In the next few days, it accelerated and got fast and noisy. No investigation turned up a cause. Now it has stopped on its own and seems to be back to normal.
The other night, I was sleeping and felt someone grab my legs between my feet and knees and shake them as if trying to wake me up. I was terrified and could hear myself crying out but more whimpering and I had the hardest time waking up. It was like I felt what was going on but couldn't wake up. But I did and had no problems moving after waking.
Last night, while on the computer around 2am, I heard footsteps in the living room next to me. I seriously thought someone was coming around the corner and freaked. I stood up and thought "what the hell am I going to do --how am I going to protect myself!" they stopped short of coming around the corner of the room where I might see them and I got up and, of course, nothing was there.
So, last night, after going to bed... And I must admit, I was pretty upset by the goings on... I went to sleep and felt someone pulling my hair... Grabbing different sections of my hair and pulling fast and hard. I remember trying to grab my hair and crying out. My daughter was sleeping in my bed and I was whispering her name --like I was afraid to call out-- and I just scooted over close to her and went to sleep --or maybe I just never woke up. I'm not sure. It was so real but I don't remember if I woke or never did wake.
What do you think about all this? I am really freaked out and feel as if someone is in this apartment... A male... And not really evil but scary. Anyone's comments would be welcome.
It happened again last night when I was sleeping I felt it all over my bed, I screamed for it to leave me alone (in my dream) and then I thought to tell it to move to the light. Woke up. Then I thought it might be someone I knew and I told it not to be afraid and that I forgave them. I said again to move to the light. Got a little freaked so sat up in bed, turned on the light, turned up the TV. After a couple of minutes, I heard the wastebasket in my bathroom move across the floor. I wanted to be sure so I went and looked and wasn't positive, so I moved it back to where it had been. Got in bed. Had to be sure it had moved. Put it back to where I had found it after the noise and realized that yes, it had been moved. There is not a doubt in my mind that I heard it move --it's glass on a ceramic tile floor-- distinct sound. I'm beginning to think that by sleeping with the light and TV on, it's being foiled and not able to approach me. For the past couple of nights have slept with no light on but with the TV on... Last night it didn't seem to matter if the TV was on or not. When the waste basket in the bathroom moved I thought maybe this thing was mad because he couldn't get to me. Worried.
