Am I Crazy?

I was a little girl around the age of five (I am now 32) I would tell my mother when I woke up that I saw a man in a flannel shirt that looked similar to my father standing in my doorway at night. My mother would laugh and say it was my imagination.  I never told any else.

My mother told me about a year ago that my son was playing at her house (the same one that I grew up in) and he had started to run down the hallway and stopped dead in his tracks.  My mother then asked him why he stopped so suddenly and he asked her who that man was that went into his uncles bedroom (which happened to be my bedroom when I was little) my mother looked in the bedroom although there was nobody there. She told him it was just his imagination.

About a week later she asked me if I had told my children about my story when I was little, and I told her that I hadn’t and she then told me about my son’s story who just happened to also be five at the time. I moved back into my parents house in October and have felt strange at times but have never seen anything again, and my son hasn’t told anyone of seeing anything again.

My mom told me after we moved in, that when they remodeled the house in 1991 she found my shot records between the walls and had no idea of how it got there.  The walls were solid with no holes or cracks. My parents have owned this house since it was built. Am I crazy or do you think there is something here?

    Sarah I think that it’s true, there probably is something there in your mothers house. When I was a little girl [I’m 17 now] I would see strange stuff in my house. But I learned to conquer my fears and then never saw anything again. Your story had made me realize that I’m not crazy and other people have experienced what I have. Thank You

    ooommmmgggggggggggg!!!!!!!! I am experiencing the exact same thing you went through with my five year old son named Roger. He tells me he sees a fat old man named Papaloe and the way he describes it is the exact way my father looked and my father’s name is Pebloe

    I truly believe everything you have said. Growing up I have heard things and seen things that to this day I cannot explain.

    When I lived in my house at south park, I always had the constant feeling that somebody was watching me. So in that house I never used to sleep and would sleep with my dad. One night I went to sleep with my dad and woke up in the middle of the night and the hall light was on. So I went to get a drink and turn it off. When I got up I saw a shadow in the living room window of a little boy clear as day from the waist up and he was like a little black and white photograph image. I looked back to see if my dad was awake and then looked back at the window in the living room and saw nothing. I ran back in bed and cried myself to sleep.

    Uhhh… you saw your own shadow?

    Nahh.. ghosts are real and they like jump scares just as much as the next guy.

    It sounds like it was your father watching over you and his grandson. He never meant any harm due to never hurting you guys. As for your shot records in the wall, that is unexplainable. I don’t think you are crazy…these things do happen..

    I still have the feeling that somebody is watching me. I have 10 ghosts in my house and I see a black shadow always following me. They think I’m crazy but I’m not. I really see it……. 🙁

Got something to say?
