My husband and I used to live in an apartment building that was over 100 years old. It had been different things threw out the years. We moved in August of 2007. We had a lady that lived across the hall that claimed she had seen things and heard things in the hall way and in her apartment but we just thought she was crazy.
My husband worked third shift at the time so I was home alone of the night. After a few weeks of being there I was hearing things at night but thought it was just the cat or the house settling. But one night I was lying in bed and heard my bedroom door open. I sat up and yelled out my husbands name thinking maybe he got off work early. No answer so I just shut the door and didn't think anything of it. I few nights later it happened again but this time the door flung open as if someone was angry. I got up and looked and no one was there again so I just left the door opened figured oh well it's just the house. As I was laying down to go back to sleep I heard someone say my name sounded like my mom as if she were right in my ear I looked and nothing, So I just went back to sleep.
This went on for a few months hearing peoples voice that I knew in my ear saying my name when I went to bed. I tried to ignore it but it was almost impossible. It would happen EVERY night and the voice sounded either like my mom, my sister or my husband. I had told my husband about it but he just blew it off like I was going crazy. It was getting to the point that I stayed up all night because I so was scared to be there alone at night.
About a year after we moved in my husband was on vacation. I was out with some girlfriends and so my husband decided to go on to bed, because we were leaving in the morning to go on vacation. He had locked the front door turned off the living room light and shut the bedroom door. He said about 30 minute later the bedroom door flung open and the living room light turned on. He thought it was me coming home but I wasn't home yet. He got out of bed and looked around to see it I was playing a joke on him when he didn't see me he turned the lights back off and went back to bed. He sates about 10 minute later he heard me yelling to him to help me that I was in trouble. He jumped out of bed to find me and again I wasn't home yet.
He then tells me that he would hear things while he was trying to sleep during the day, but didn't want to tell me because he knows how scared I already was. So after all this I decided to find out some history on the building.
I had found out the in the early 1900's the building was converted into a doctors office and the doctor would do surgeries in what was now our apartment. So I then looked online and found that if a ghost or spirit is trying to contact you they will use the voice of someone you know. I don't know what they were trying to tell us but after almost 2 years of this going on we decided to move. And last I know the landlord can not keep that apartment rented.
