My boyfriend and I moved into a duplex together just over a year ago. I don't ever recall feeling uneasy or having any strange occurrences occur while we had roommates, all of whom moved out in December 2009 after we got engaged. We kind of wanted the place to ourselves after that.
At first, I thought I was just having nightmares or something that were making me feel uneasy as I would wake up very suddenly around 3:00 a.m. Every time I would wake up, however, I felt (and still feel) very watched from the corner of our bedroom by the door. I never feel uneasy during the day or while my fiancé is awake at night. My fiancé has to either not be home or asleep and sure enough, the feeling of something watching me overwhelms me in our room at night.
A couple nights into feeling watched and not sleeping well something happened that actually scared my fiancé. He said I was just dead asleep and couldn't be woken up, but he had heard one of our two giant great danes growling (granted, they do tend to growl if someone walks past on the sidewalk, but they are always looking out the window at the person). She was growling at the wall just outside our bedroom door. He said she was just sitting there staring straight at the wall, growling! He left a little light on and went back to bed, telling me about this incident in the morning.
Just a few nights ago, on January 24th I believe, I was suddenly awoken again and was trying to convince myself that I did not have to go to the bathroom as bad as I thought I did. I had this horrible feeling of just utter terror and feeling of being watched again. As I laid there trying to fall back asleep I kept hearing a knocking noise that kept me awake for nearly an hour. It was a soft, rhythmic knocking. It would knock a couple of times, then go away, then happen again. Although I live in a duplex, this was definitely not something coming from my adjoined neighbors; the knocking seemed to occur on/in different walls of the house.
Last night, January 26, was the night that I became truly convinced something else lives here with us. I had gone to bed early and left the door open because I don't like to go to bed alone since all of this has been happening. I put in earplugs before I went to sleep because my fiancé was in the next room watching TV. Then, suddenly around midnight I think, the stereo in our living room turned on by itself! It started blaring a Stevie Nicks song that was so loud that it seemed overwhelming even with my earplugs in! The reason I'm so freaked out by this is because this particular stereo always resets itself to the low volume level and to CD mode when you turn it on from being off.
It seems as if the events in our house are progressing to more and more noticeable things. I'm concerned that this could get out of hand. I don't mind sharing our space with a friendly spirit, but I don't consider waking me up in the middle of the night with extremely loud Stevie Nicks' songs to be friendly!
