My grandma died a few months ago, and my 5-year-old Emma has began telling strange, but true and detailed things about her death. She was able to tell us what she was doing before she died, what she was thinking, and so many more details. She even told us about her teeth that had been found on the counter (this had been a mystery to us, but when we called the coroner we realized that Emma knew what had happened) She was able to call my aunt by her nickname that my grandma had called her when she was little, that no one had known about. She said that she talked to Oma, my grandma in her dreams and Oma wanted everyone to stop fighting, which is what we were all doing.
The more I listen to her the more I realize that she has many imaginary friends that change on a daily basis. She used to talk about a man in the kitchen with a scar on his face. And I do remember a time when I felt someone whispering to me and I brushed it off.
Just last night, for the first time, Emma was scared in bed. She said the lady with a green tattoo on her face was in bed and scaring her. She has never been scared before so I am concerned that this is becoming an issue. She plays with her "friends" all of the time and I never paid much attention until now. She has strange conversations and when she tells me about them she uses strange, not 5-year-old words, like "unveiled, concerned, fading into darkness, seems to be floating in the air" I never have believed in these things before but the more I listen to her the more freaked out I get.
My friends say she is a slightly odd child with her crazy stories and wild imagination. I have always talked her up as being creative, but it seems more odd now than anything. I have started seeing a shrink with her hoping that these behaviors are just her imagination running wild. But now I am not quite so sure. I am hoping to find some answers from someone who is experiencing the same things.
