I am writing this for my daughter who is 14 and now being frightened out of her wits. She just came in from school in tears and we need help!
Over the last few weeks my daughter has had this presence when she was going to bed to start with. At the beginning, during night she would be awakened by the sound of footsteps across landing and into her room, and then would question me the next morning if I was up during night, which I was not. She was not to bothered about this at this stage.
Then, it became that the 'thing' would either sit on her feet, legs or chest, this is when she started to become worried, as when it was on her chest she could hardly breathe.
The next bit was that she could hear like a wheezy breathing in her room and all pieces were coming together: the footsteps, the breathing and the sitting on her.
She then was starting to get the feeling during the day of someone following her to school, but the strange thing was that they would have their hand on her right shoulder. She had said to friends who she walks to school with, as they kept asking her why she kept turning and looking behind. She doesn't think they believe her and this is making her more worried that they think she is nuts!
Only last week, she was awakened out of her sleep as she felt something on her feet. When she looked down the bed, she could see a tiger cub lying asleep on the bottom of her bed. When she told me this she was not that bothered but thought it kind of cute in a way. I believe her on this as my friend does have a wolf beside her at all times of trouble, so I put that down to the same thing, as she was completing exams that week.
Only today, it is worse! I just opened the door to her when she came home from school and was in tears - inconsolable! I asked what had happened, thinking something to do with school, but I am now disturbed to think that she is feeling really scared now.
My daughter has explained that this 'thing' has followed her all day today, behind her with hand on shoulder when walking up to school this morning, following her around classes all day. Has even felt it breathing on her all day and felt it sitting on her desk watching her.
I just don't know where to turn, if it is good, evil or whatever! We need help!
We have over the past few years had a few deaths in family, my grandmother died in 2002, my grandfather died in 2010 also did my great uncle, and then recently my boyfriend's father passed away in November.
My daughter has said that she has tried to think of it as being her great grandmother or great uncle to make it seem good, but she just does not get the good feeling about it all of the time, she says that sometimes she feels it is going to hurt her. I have tried to make it positive by telling her it could be someone watching over her keeping her safe, like her guardian angel, but after today, I'm not too sure.
Can anyone help?
