If anyone is able to help me figure things out, that would be wonderful. (sorry this is long but please read it. I need some advice.) I am 15, and for 5 years (this started when I was 10) I started seeing shadows and figures out of the corner of my eyes, and I see and or hear something every day. I hear noises sometimes. Anything from faint whispers, to footsteps, and mumbling. Now I know you may be thinking "oh she is probably just schizophrenic," but that isn't the case. I have a friend who suffers from it, and I can assure you that's not it. (you can probably just skip to the last 2 paragraphs to get the gist of things.)
The first time I really noticed it was when I was laying in my room all alone, and I had this feeling that I can only describe as terror. It was directed at the center of my back, as if I was being watched. Ever since that one night, I have been terrified of windows and mirrors for some reason. That night I also heard a low sort of whisper, but I couldn't make out the words. Even before this had started I had experienced quite a few paranormal things, and being a young child I had no understanding of what was happening. When I was about 9, I shared a room with my brother and sister. One night I was trying to go to sleep (I slept on the top bunk of bunk-beds) and my closet started to slowly open. It took about a minute for it to open halfway. That's when a figure of a man came out of my closet, and started walking towards the end of my bed. He was very tall, about 5 inches shorter than the ceiling, had raggedy and torn clothes on, very thin dark grey hair sticking straight up, and he had no eyes. Just holes where they would have been. He stood at the edge of my bed for about five minutes, then went back into my closet. That was the last time I slept with my door closed for 4 years.
Another encounter was when I had my own room at about age 12 and I saw a young boy with suspenders on, going through my diary, which had previously been locked. I woke up the next morning to see my diary open, and on the last entry. That same month, I saw three men standing at my bedroom door looking right at me. They had tall top hats on and formal suits.
Since then, I have had that constant feeling of people watching me, and to tell you the truth, it has not gone away even for a second since it started. As I type this, I feel it.
The past 2 weeks have been some of the worst for me. Since this all has started, it seemed to be very bad for about 4-5 months then die down little. However, this hasn't happened yet. It's been constant for a year now. Just last week I had my first real sighting since those first years. (my family moved to a new city 2 years and 1 month ago). I was going up the stairs and I saw a woman with a white fur coat and a light blue face and body "float" from my front door into the hall closet. Then, I was showering and I heard a "whoooosh" noise, immediately followed by my shower curtain flying up. I ruled out the fact that my new house was haunted because it is a fairly new house, only about 30 years old, compared to my last one which was 80.
So last night I was talking with my mom about seeing a psychiatrist because I might be hallucinating, and she mentioned the thought that maybe I was psychic. I come from a traditional catholic family, and I was completely surprised by her saying this. Then she said that she gets those feelings a lot, and so do two of her sisters, and also her mom. I never even considered this a possibility. I started connecting the pieces, and it started to make sense. I also failed to mention that I have dreams that last only about 30 seconds, but then I wake up the next day and they happen. Word for word, same outfits, hair, room, time, lighting. Everything is the same. As an example, one of my dreams was that my dad asked me for acne cream in his room, and the next day he actually did it. I also have dreams of my past memories, like things that have happened when I was 3 or 4 and my grandma thought it was really weird. She actually thought at one point that I was seeing the future.
Thank you to anyone who takes the time to read this. Your advice would really mean a lot to a girl with no idea what's happening. THANK YOU!
