Real Or Paranoia?


It all started when I was a child, and has increased over time.

When I was about 5, we lived in a trailer park in Texarkana; it was where I spent most of my childhood. One day an elderly man passed away, he was not very fond of kids at all. Thinking nothing of it, I just went on with my day playing with my friends. A few weeks later I wake up around one in the morning to look down the hallway and see what looked like a white figure in the kitchen. Thinking it was just my imagination, I went back to sleep. Around 3AM I woke up again to see it in the front room; scared I ran to my older sisters room to wake her up. She told me to go back to bed, but I was too frightened to go by myself so she walked me back and turned the light on for me. My brothers dad came in yelling and turned off the light telling everyone to go to bed, so I just stayed laying there looking up at the ceiling then eventually falling back asleep. I eventually woke up again around 5 in the morning to see in the hallway, staring right at me. I quickly covered my head and went back to sleep. Could it have been the old man?

Ever since then, I have this horrid feeling that someone is watching me. Everywhere I go, no matter where I live... I feel like something is there. It started happening more after I had a seizure when I was about 7. I have no explanation for what is happening, and it happens out of nowhere. I really need help. Am I just paranoid or can I sense spirits?

Please, I am looking for positive feedback, I am at my wits end with this. I have a 4 month old son that I need to be focusing on. I have been going through my whole life just wanting answers. If it is me being sensitive to spirits, is it hereditary at all? Thank you all for your time, thank you for reading my story. I really do appreciate your feedback.

Whatever you do do not put up a mental block you would come to regret it. One thing I do know it is not paranoia if you wish to talk to me about this further email me and put in a reminder of your situation

If your dog responds then it probably isn't paranoia, maybe you should try talking to it and see what it wants? Don't listen to your husband, you aren't crazy, though I doubt the spirits mean you any harm but I do understand exactly how you feel!

P.s Sorry about the epilepsy thing and I don't believe you are crazy!

I wish it was as easy as saying epilepsy is causing it, but I am not epileptic. That was the only seizure I have had my entire life.

Here lately, I have a feeling there is something here. It feels like a woman with dark brown hair. I have heard footsteps when everyone else is asleep, the dog gets up and starts pacing out of nowhere, and one morning... I heard a womans voice. I was the only female in the house at the time. But what has creeped me out since I have lived in this house, is one morning after I brought my son home from the hospital... I heard what sounded like loud animal noises. I walked out of the room to find that my son and I were alone.

I am wondering if this is part of the "paranoia", if that is what this is. I am the only one hearing things and sensing things. I tried talking to my husband about it, but he thinks I am crazy. It is nice to come to people with my story and not be called crazy for once. This makes me cry at night sometimes just thinking of what people have called me over the years.

You said it was happening more after you had a seizure? Out of curiosity, do you have epilepsy? We (I have it too) can hallucinate by seeing, sensing, smelling and hearing things that aren't there. I'm not doubting you at all though, I have my own problem with an entity but I convinced myself it was hallucinations until it affected my other family members, but if you do have epilepsy or something then it could be that? You could've had it underlying before your first seizure without knowing, I did.

You could try and see if taking epilepsy medication works though you may be unable to tell as I'm on two at the same time at the moment that aren't working and have also been through 5 other failed medications so although it's not guaranteed to work, if you do have epilepsy I'd suggest at least trying a medication and if it even cuts down your experience slightly it may be a case of increasing your dosage?

I'm not a doctor, sorry I can't be more helpful but I thought I'd just pick up on that! Please don't be offended! If your family are seeing things too like mine were then you know it isn't you, that's the only way I knew.

Thank you so much, you are right. I need to get to the bottom of this. I want to live a wonderful life with my son and not one always in fear that someone is watching us in the shadows. I am open to any suggestions, they are greatly appreciated.

We can't say for sure if it was the old man or another spirit but it's not uncommon for a young child to see through the veil. Also, we (at any age) see through the veil more easily during what I call the three "B's" of bed, bath and bus. While we're coming in or out of sleep or doing relaxing things like sitting in a bath or riding a bus, the filter over our consciousness opens up. So in that respect I don't think you were imagining anything.

But moving onward now to your adulthood. Per your statement "ever since then I have this horrid sense someone is watching me." Living like that is not good for your mental well being and like you said, you need to focus on your son. Regardless if you are really sensing this or not, you need to get to the bottom of why sensing an entity is horrible. You may need to come up with a new life story as to how that feels. Living with constant dream will make you paranoid so you may want to consider shutting this aspect of you off by ignoring it shored up with positive affirmation, meditation and light work. And if you've lead a life of dread you're going to attract the very thing you're dreading.

You're in the red when it comes to energy. To get out of that is going to take some work but with a son at home, now is the time.

Let us know if we can help.
