I know that my young age may make you focus more on how young I am, rather than the problem I am trying to get fixed. So please for the few minutes it takes to read the short passage below, forget about my age and please help me with this.
I am a 13 year old girl that lives in a small town in Ohio. I have a 4.0 GPA and my mother and I both are signing up for classes that will show us how to "feel" if there are spirits in a given area or not. Some of my hobbies are playing softball and riding horses. My mother has had paranormal experiences her whole life and yet she still does not believe in ghosts. So when I tell her any of what is stated below, she just simply states, "Ghosts are not real. It's just your imagination." And it drives me up a wall because this scares me and she won't believe me.
We live in a house that is only 3 years old as of today, Monday, august 02, 2010. So when the paranormal activity started I just thought there was no way with our house being so young. But then I realized another factor. My father's house is outstandingly old. It was built in the early 1900's. But it used to be an old grocery store back then, and if you were to look up the address (and for obvious reasons I will not state) it would clearly state that a boy with the name of Casey (something or another... I can't remember his last name) died there as a young man. It is said he was cooking food of some sort and as he was doing so his shirt ignited, resulting in his death at the age of 15.
I can remember days at my Father's house when I would lie awake at night and all of a sudden my little brother's toy tank would start driving across the room. It was one of those where you click the arrow and it will move. I can also remember times when I would be sitting in my sister's room and all of a sudden her closet door would slam shut. But all of that hasn't happened in a long time. Not at my father's house that is. A few weeks ago I started waking up in the middle of the night feeling like there was someone in the room. And sometimes when I feel that presence, my bunny (which is in my room) will start bouncing around her cage like a maniac. But the most recent happened a few days ago. All of a sudden I felt a hand on my arm. I jumped and it went away. I also couldn't find whatever touched me. But just last night I swore something was rubbing my leg and I couldn't move. I don't know whether I was just so scared that I refused to move or what it was that made it so I couldn't move. But then my sister walked in the room and it vanished. So I made her sleep in my room with me because I was freaking out.
I don't know anything about this. I haven't done much research on it. And when I tell my mom she says I'm either crazy or it's just my imagination.
Please help me... And don't tell me it's my imagination like my mother. Because all that does is make me feel even more hopeless.
