I've read countless stories on this site, you all seem to be wonderful at giving advice so here I am pleading that perhaps you can help my son. I am only asking since his pride refuses to allow him to ask for the help he needs.
I believe someone or something has attached itself to my son. My son has always been very out going, kind and the type of person that people are just drawn to. But recently he's become cruel, manipulative and just down right rotten. At first I believed it was a phase, a last burst of pent up teenage aggression but it has been six months now and he's getting worst. I'll try to explain some of my main points of worry.
I hadn't thought much of this strange nasty streak, until one of my oldest friends, who has always had a knack of sorts for sensing spirits refused to enter my home, saying and I quote 'something evil is in this house'.
She convinced me to allow her to cleanse the house after two weeks of consistent begging and pleading, I never linked the two things together until the day of the cleansing. My friend has known my son since he was a tiny baby and they've always gotten along but on this day he stood at the front door saying that she wasn't going to ruin our house. I've never seen my son so angry, he refused to let me near him and my friend was unable to preform the cleansing.
A few days after this awful and heartbreaking incident my friend called me telling me to get my son out of the house. This was easier said than done, he refused to leave until I piratically dragged him down to our summer house for two weeks. The first few days where uneasy, he screamed that he hated me and told me countless times that he wished I was dead. I've never cried so much, it was affecting our whole family. On about the fifth day though, he began to return to his normal self and apologized to me profusely. I wish I would have never taken him back.
Three days after our return my friend returned, she explained to me that my son had talked to her about seeing spirits before. I hadn't known a thing about this, I was relieved until she said that the spirit that was feeding off him was one of the worst she had ever felt. She didn't feel safe within the house we had spent so long together in anymore. As she left my son handed her, her coat saying simply 'We don't want you here again. Don't come back.' Since then my friend has not had the courage to return.
About a month ago, I was in the kitchen cleaning some pots before I went to bed, when my son walked in. He looked almost ill. For the first time since he was a little boy he ran to me hugging me tightly and began crying into my shoulder. Upon asking what was wrong he whispered into my ear words I doubt any mother could forget 'I've had enough, please just make it all go away'. My dear bubbly son was begging for help, even though the next morning he would return to these strange new ways. I asked him what had made him so upset and he replied 'He was trapped in the attic, at first he made me feel safe I really liked being near him but now I'm scared.'
The next day I booked a exorcist to cleanse and bless the house. If you've ever seen a cobra hissing, then you have an idea about how angry my son was about this man being inside our house. I was horrified when he began throwing plates saying how unfair it was, how he was his best friend and how much he hated us all. The exorcist said he would return another day but I've not had the courage to phone him back.
I'm pleading with you, for the sake of my son is there anything I can do? Our whole family is being affected by this thing and I'm at the end of my line, I would do anything for any of my three children so if there is any way please help. My eldest son has become a whole new person since we opened the attic. Please help me and my son.
