I've always been interested in the paranormal, I've heard stories of other peoples experiences, but I'd never really had my own experience. That is until a few weeks ago. I work construction, it's a family business, usually doing service work on new modular homes for a hand full of manufacturers. Occasionally we'll get a side job that we'll work on on weekends for a little extra spending money. So that's what this was, a side job, putting in replacement windows for a rental home. The whole time I was there I felt as if something just wasn't right. I wasn't alone, of course, my dad was there but... I didn't feel that we were alone. The whole morning I could hear people walking around in the house but of course, when I look for whoever was walking around, to my surprise, there was no one there. Hearing this all day, I had put it in the back of my mind, I ignored it, I didn't really think anything of it. Then as I set a window in it's hole and my dad held it, I put in 2 screws to hold it and as I go to put in the next screw, I hear it. A woman screaming to the top of her lungs, as I run to see what's wrong with whoever it is in the house... I realize, there's no one there. My dad comes into the house, looks at me and says, "what's wrong? What happened?" "Did you not hear that?" I said, but he didn't hear it, he had no idea what I was talking about. Fast forward maybe 2 weeks later, in the same house, we're back to overlay some 80's era wooden paneling with drywall. (I feel that this should be here, that you should know that this has happened as I'm sitting here writing this, before I even finished that last sentence. Sitting here in a hotel room looking down at my computer something catches my eye, and in the corner of my eye at the end of my bed I watch a little girl, maybe 5 or 6, in a white dress and black shoes "Shirley Temple" golden hair, walk from the end of my bed to the door. What was that?)
Back to the story, we're putting up drywall, and again I'm hearing people walking all around the house. I walk to the door of the room and look across to the bathroom and there she is, a woman maybe in her mid to late 30's looking at me. It's weird, I know it happened in a matter of 2 or 3 seconds, but standing there looking at her looking at me it felt like time stopped, there was no such thing as time. She was wearing a black t-shirt and grey sweats. And she saw me, she knew I was looking at her, I saw her face, I swear I saw her face, her eyes looking at me but I have no idea what she looked like. I know I saw her, but maybe I just felt her look at me, I don't know how to explain it.
Ever since this has happened to me, I see things everywhere, people, that aren't actually there. I've found that if you look straight at them they disappear, but if you observe from the corner of your eye, they stay around a bit. I know I sound crazy at this point. I feel like the girl in the black T-shirt follows me, I haven't seen her since that day but I feel her. I know it sounds phony, like I'm a crazy person, but I feel her around me. Even at home, I've felt fingers running through the back of my hair, a hand on my arm. Something just rubbed my ear. I think she just wants to be around me, I don't know if I remind her of someone or if maybe she knows I've seen her so she wants to stick around with me. So I see people around me everywhere that aren't actually there and I feel that I have one woman that's not really there but shes there, following me around. She doesn't bother me, I mean shes not throwing things around or anything like that, I feel like maybe being around me just provides to her some form of comfort, as crazy as that sounds.
So the last thing that's been happening to me is the dreaming. I rarely remember my dreams and when I do, they're crazy, for example I remember dreaming years ago that my mother bought a large amount of axe body spray and stored it for me in the freezer. These are the kinds of dreams I usually have, but lately, not so much. Lately I wake up usually every morning knowing that I'd dreamed but not remembering, and I'd say probably 80% or so of the time, at some point throughout the day I'll live out something that happened in my dream and the dream is so clear to me. For example, this afternoon, at a customers home, we were leaving for the day and walk into the garage to let him know. As soon as we walk in, I remember, I was in this garage and he asked us to do something to his wall for his T.V. We're standing there talking to him and he asks us to cut in a box so that he can run a cable line for his T.V.
I don't know, I just feel like I need to share this with someone before I go crazy. And maybe someone can offer some insight on what may be happening to me. Did an experience such as seeing this woman in the black t-shirt maybe bring to light something that I've just never noticed before? I don't Know, but any insight or advice is graciously accepted.
Thank you for reading. I know there's a lot here.
