Last night, I woke up to a loud hissing noise that came from the foot of my bed. I don't own any cats and it didn't really sound catlike. I was terrified so I turned on the light but nothing was there. A few seconds later I heard my name being whispered and heard something brush against the wall beside me. I admit that I have trouble sleeping. I am so terrified of the paranormal that I can't stand being alone in the dark so I sleep with the TV on mute.
I've had an experience in the past with a ghost and I really don't want to face another one. I'm afraid that this isn't the first time a noise like this has woken me up. I've heard loud bangs that interrupt my sleep, but no one is there when I turn the light on. Sometimes I feel a presence and other times I cannot. I really think I may be losing my mind. I also wake up around 3 or 4 every single night. Even if I take 2-3 Advil/Tylenol PMs, I still wake up around that time. I think this may be due to the fact that I ever since I saw the movie "Emily Rose", I have been terrified to wake up at 3. So naturally, my mind wakes me up at 3. Are these noises just a product of my paranoia? Someone please tell me I'm not being haunted. Lack of sleep has left me exhausted throughout the day and only adds to the stress that I face in my day to day life.
