Where to start... Ok, so here it goes.
When I was little I used to see this ghost dog around my house between the age of 3 and 8. I told my parents but they said "just ignore it" or "it will go away" but it didn't. So a few nights of the years when I was small there would be this black shaggy dog barking and jumping up at my bed I screamed when ever I saw it. My mum would come in and sit on my bed and I'd try and get to sleep.
About a year ago (when I was 15) I asked my mum about it and she said that she saw the ghost dog as well when I screamed. So that's why she didn't turn the lights on.
Recently (on my 17 birthday last Friday) I have been feeling really edgy. I can't stay in the house on my own anymore. Where ever I walk around my house I feel as though someone's watching me. I see thing out of the corner of my eye, but I know they are not really there. I need to sleep with the TV and light on all night because there is a scratching sound coming from under the door and a panting sound in front of my face.
I don't know how to make it go away.
Another time was when I was at my grans sleeping over me and my gran where watching TV in the morning and it sounded like there was someone banging around and opening and closing cupboards in the kitchen. I went to look and there was nothing there. I heard it and my gran heard it and she doesn't believe in ghosts but she thinks the house is haunted.
