This is my 2nd story posted. Since then I've learned quite a lot. But a regular visitor I used to have when I was a kid has come to my attention, that she may have been something other than my imagination.
When I was about 5, give or take a year or two, I would wake up for whatever reason in the middle of the night, usually from nightmares. Upon waking up I was ready to scream for my mom, but my nightmare would be wiped from my mind as I saw a woman standing in my doorway. She would always be dressed in a long white night gown. She was a tall woman, with long black hair, sort of curly. Anyway I was terrified of this woman, whether because I was little and automatically creeped out. I do not remember her posing any threat to me.
When I would see this woman I would scream for my mother. She would soon come (my parent's room is right next door and it literally takes three steps to get in there room from mine). It would always feel like it takes her forever to get to my room. I would never want to go running into her room for fear that the woman would hurt me. But my mom and dad would always tell me it was my imagination. I would insist it wasn't, but I soon gave up seeing as no one really believed me.
Now that I know ghosts are real, I've been thinking back for the last couple years. What if what I saw was a ghost? I saw her almost every night. I would forget all about her in the day, until I was awoken and there she was, watching me. She never moved any, just stayed in the same position, watching. I honestly don't know how I remember this so clearly but I do. It definitely was not a dream or a hallucination. The weird thing is, me and my mom were talking a couple months back about her past ghost experiences and I brought up the woman. I described her as best as I could remember, which is pretty good, seeing as I can remember her as if she still visited. Apparently she died long before mom came in the picture. She only saw her once in a picture. But of course we can't be sure that s who I was seeing, because I need the picture to clarify. But I will never get my hands on that picture because my nanny has it and well. That's just how she rolls. She's not very cooperative. Nicest thing I can say about her I think lol.
Anyway, I don't think I will find out ever if I was seeing a past relative or not, but if I was, it doesn't make sense because she was better than our family. And I don't say that meaning snobby. You kind of have to know my family to understand. Anyway, she was doing good for herself and only came out once and a while. She and dad never got along great or whatever so I'm not thinking she would want to be check in on me?
My Mom had a theory that it may have been something watching over me? So, realizing this story is pretty much longer than intended, sorry about that, ill close my story with a "any ideas of what I was seeing when I was little?" It definitely was no dream that's for sure.
Peace out and much thanks
