In the past couple of weeks, there has been some suspected Poltergeist activity. I'll start off with what happened first.
BANGING - There has been a lot of banging in the house, mainly on doors, but sometimes from the ceiling and the floor. It is usually loud and continuous banging, and sounds like a fist thumping something.
FOOTSTEPS - This could be a ghost, but I have been hearing footsteps on the landing above the stairs. The strange thing is the footsteps sound like they are stepping on a stone or concrete floor, but my landing is covered in carpet.
THE SHOWER INCIDENT - I was having a shower on Sunday, and I set the temperature to the highest it could go (just over the 9 dial) and all of a sudden, the water went freezing, as it did, I turned around to see the dial pointing to under 1. I turned the temperature back up, and it was fine after that.
GOING DOWN THE STAIRS - since the banging has been happening, when I go down the stairs, I feel as if someone is pushing me down. (Once I have fell over and cut my leg pretty badly on the radiator at the bottom of the stairs.) The pushing has been getting harder and harder as each week goes by, and now it is getting to the point where it is a punch then push. I have also been hit in the back of the neck, also going down the stairs. The pushing, punching and hitting is leaving me with quite sore bruises, which leads me to the poking...
POKING - on my bruises, I have been poked quite hard by an invisible force. It makes them worse, and they don't heal for a while. They feel cold, and the fingers are quite rough.
I have read that poltergeist usually appear to girls who are 10 - 18. I don't want to post my actual age, but I am in between those ages. Also poltergeists only stay for 8 - 10 weeks, but this has stayed for just over 11.
