I can't really say when this started it's been happening for as long as I can remember. I've never actually seen a ghost or anything and there's only been one occasion where I thought I heard something, at the time I was certain I heard something but I suppose we naturally say we're just imagining it right?
I've been afraid of the dark for as long as I can remember, I'd be lucky to get a full nights sleep without waking up, usually I wake up with a strong feeling that someone is watching me even though no ones there? I can't sleep in pitch black and silence there has to be light and noise but I suppose that's a fear more then anything.
Sometimes I see things out of the corner of my eye but then I look and nothing is there. I always feel like I'm being watched and I'm always looking over my shoulder and getting shivers. Even in my own house I don't feel alone and get these inexplainable rushes of pure terror for no reason.
I went to a haunted castle before and as soon as I stepped into the gardens I felt like I was being watched but no one else got it, the second time I was there I got the feeling again and I swore I heard the noise of a girl in an old barn, I couldn't see because it was pitch black in the barn so if there was someone there I don't know but the place was closed and my friends and me were the only people there. I drove past it the other day and started getting shivers up and down my neck and spine and even when I look at the place I get this weird feeling.
My boyfriend thinks I can sense ghosts but I think I'm being silly? I'm only 16 so I really don't know what to believe? I do believe in the paranormal and I'm really interested in it. Any help at all would be great. Thank you.
