Am I Crazy?


Have you ever had the feeling of being watched? That extreme paranoia that makes you jump at every noise and flip your head round whenever a shadow passes the corner of your eye.

Well I never used to have it, especially not in my childhood home. Unfortunately, I'm plagued with it now. If you've read my other stories or my home history (it's in my profile) then you'll know these experiences here seemed to have popped out of nowhere.

It was after I had come home from work at around 5.30pm Friday evening. The sun was hidden behind dense storm clouds and it felt like the atmosphere was electric from the sudden bursts of heavy rain we had been having during the day. I was alone and had begun to get ready for my boyfriend to come home and pick me up to go out for the evening. The light was faded but it wasn't quite fully dark yet, I couldn't feel anything odd or out of the ordinary whilst I was rushing round getting dressed until a strong breezed quite literally whipped across my face while in my bedroom.

I suddenly found myself feeling restless and agitated, believe me I have nearly had enough of all this. I swear the room grew darker around me; I would have brushed this off as a stronger cloud moving across the sky if my bedroom light hadn't been on and if I hadn't seen what I did next.

In the corner by the window was a very faint black shadow, I was frozen. I blinked, it stayed. I believe it was pulsating slightly, I stared then looked toward the door and when I looked back it had faded. All except for what looked like two faint eyes, not looking at me, more behind me. I literally rubbed my eyes in disbelief but they were still there, it was about 5 seconds before they disappeared completely.

At random occasions I have had your regular "corner of the eye" shadow, light spots, cold breezes, doors slamming, dog going nuts and on more than one occasion I have seen what I thought was my boyfriend moving about when it turns out he's been asleep or in the shower or not home at all.

I've always been one for staying skeptical yet open-minded but it's not just me that has experienced these things. I'll stress again, I NEVER used to be sensitive to the paranormal and I'm not remotely psychic but my boyfriend is, but for some reason he hasn't experienced whatever this is as much as me. Would it be right to think he/his energy has drawn something to me?

I'll go get my eyes tested before I really start crying Ghost.

I've continued research but nothing too interesting has come up (again my profile has my house/area history). We're also moving soon so it might be the end to these stories.

As always, thanks for reading and my apologies for this not being too exciting or scary, or well written for that matter (laughs)

I know how you feel, I get the feeling that someone is watching me all the time. I also feel like there is someone following me, and I've heard someone shout my name, even though the streets where empty.

Ive heard cats before that have made me jump -the fact is we don't have any cats and we live on a main road, I heard this at like 12 lunch time. At that time of day the road is pretty busy and my room is upstairs at the front of the's not easy to hear a cat meow from my bed to the floor outside.
And another thing I have only heard the cat meow four times so far... The first time I heard it meow three times then once and both times after I have visted this site.

When you try to communicate with this spirit do you use a tape/digital recorder? I would try that. Or even leave it running when you leave the house. You might catch something. Good luck and keep us posted! ❤

That is interesting, I am sure we had this conversation before in which I said it would not be a bad idea to actually burn some and see what happens. Did you tell me what you were smelling. I would be very interested to know. Jasmin, Lavender, what does the smell remind you of. I am sure I advised you burn some sandlewood. Try it please, let us know what happens. I still find it very strange how your boyfriend hates incense. Try some Tibetan ritual incense, which has sandalwood as one of it's ingredients if getting pure red sandalwood is difficult to get.

Really interesting theory, I suppose that really makes sense.

HobbyHolly, I've got exactly the same filthy habit 😉

Avenged90, I have tried but it doesn't seem like anything has happened. I don't think its intelligent because what's happened so far it hasnt interacted with me at all

MusicXisXmyXlife22, thanks for commenting

Arithod, I'm not sure I like the sound of seeing dead people! 😉

Thanks for all your comments guys,
Incense is one thing that we frequently smell around the house that neither of us burn because my boyfiend doesn't like it.

surya is right incense do help but be sure you use the right kind. Sandle wood is good. Also get your hands on some white sage and burn that (carefully). Avenged's sugestion was good as well comunication is a good idea but understand that its a chance you may not get a good responce or at least not a nice one. Also remeber that not everyone was sensitive from the get go it maybe that your gift is just begining to bloom

You're not one bit crazy at all. What I would do is wait for the right time. Wait until your boyfriend is not in your house at all, and if and when you see "him", stop everything you are doing and try to communicate with this presence. Ask simple questions like "May I help you?" or "What do you want?". If they want attention that will surely grab it for them. I know it's going to be scary doing this, but it's something that might need done. Hope this helps =]

Trust me, you are not crazy. If you're crazy, then I must belong in an insane asylum. If anything, you're probably seeing someone... I don't know why

Not crazy hazzard.

I have the same thing. Some rooms just don't "feel" right. I normally trust my gut and don't go in that room. I'll put on a few more lights... Turn on the tv. Smoke an extra cigarette (I know nasty habit) ha. If you plan on moving hopefully this will stop

One thing I have noticed, is that people who are not sensitive but are with sensitive people ie. My theory is bodily fluids, I firmly believe you carry a bit of your soul in bodily fluids, there are a lot of ancient beliefs that believed once a man slept with a woman she could control him because she had captured his soul anyways my point is, one enlightened one not, they sleep together and over a period of time the partner starts to perceive things they never thought they ever would. Hope this makes sense and once again not a fact but a theory.

No you are not crazy, definitely not crazy. I know exactly what you mean. I for one would definitely like to know if anything happens when you move. In the meantime maybe burning some incense, to clear the space.
