ATTN PD.COM: I'm losing it
« on: December 08, 2009, 10:13:59 am »
I've not slept in 24 hours. At least. I'm not really sure when I stopped sleeping and just starting staring with blank eyes at my slightly cracked door. And the dimly lit hallway, full of horrific things.

I don't even know what those things are, but I see them and hear them. And at first I thought it was just me, but then my family saw them. And then I thought living with me had drove them mad.

Then the sister's case manager saw them too.

There's several distinct ones. A faceless thing in a tuxedo that stands at the top of the stairs, half turned. A similar apparition in a dress that my sister has seen in her room. Something nameless that runs up and down the hallways, rattling the doorknobs only when everyone's doors are closed. A naked thing with nothing above the waist. A presence that exude pure, unadulterated panic downstairs. Black mists all through the halls but only when they're already sort of dark. And sounds all through the walls, all the time.

The one that gives off panic is in my room RIGHT NOW. My room is almost always safe. I can't sleep, I can't even lay down. I'm paralyzed with fear, back up against the wall, scared to turn my head too far to look at the computer screen in case I don't see SOMETHING IN FRONT OF THE DOOR that's only there for a split second. I can't even get up to open the window, even though I'm roasting in a poorly insulated house where the external temperature is approximately "frosty as Santa's balls". And the air here is so heavy I feel like I'm drinking it.

I can't stand this house. I have to sleep in the middle of the day, because when the lights are off and I can't beg someone to escort me around the house because they're all sleeping, I'm too scared to go down the stairs.

I'm frightened that my already tenuous grasp on sanity is slipping, and somehow I'm even hallucinating other people telling me this shit's happening. I don't want to believe in this sort of thing. I want to be coolly detached and say it's a track of the light or an overactive imagination or just the sleep deprivation getting to me. But I see it, and I hear it, and they tell me they see and hear it too. And right now, it's IN MY DAMN ROOM and there's another one rattling my doorknob like it wants in, and I hear yet another one moaning in the empty closet down the hall.

I don't know what to do. I don't even think I should be posting this here, but I'm panicking too much to not do it. I have to try and reach out and talk to living people, so I can imagine that this isn't real, or I really am going to lose my fucking mind.

I'd laugh, if only the light were on and maybe it were a bit closer to sunrise. And if the moaning and rattling would stop.

Thats creepy, ive had an experience like that, but not a shared one.

If it was just you id say its a case of perhaps temporary schizophrenia; but since its shared, maybe its collective hysteria.

Fire crackers are usually pretty good at driving away evil spirits, they don't like loud noises for some reason.

That and loud, jammin music.

Also, proton packs.
- So the New World Order does not actually exist?
- Oh it exists, and how!
Ask the slaves whose labour built the White House;
Ask the slaves of today tied down to sweatshops and brothels to escape hunger;
Ask most women, second class citizens, in a pervasive rape culture;
Ask the non-human creatures who inhabit the planet:
whales, bears, frogs, tuna, bees, slaughtered farm animals;
Ask the natives of the Americas and Australia on whose land
you live today, on whose graves your factories, farms and neighbourhoods stand;
ask any of them this, ask them if the New World Order is true;
they'll tell you plainly: the New World Order… is you!

Screw that.  Stock up on salt, fire and cold iron.  Learn how to draw the Seal of Solomon from memory. Acquire a cool car and play lots of 80s rock songs.

Cain,

Okay, let's assume for a moment that this phenomena is really happening.  Has anyone been hurt by it?  Apparently not.  What you might have there is a bunch of pissed off dead people, but so what?  They don't have a BODY, so they really can't do shit.  Unless you listen to them.  Under no circumstances should you ever trust them, should they ever get around to talking instead of cheap theatrics...after all, they're probably someone like me, who hates the future, and wants to punish it.  I know I would.  I'd be handing out all kinds of fucked up advice.  In fact, when I die, I WANT to be some horrible ghost, keeping everyone awake at night, and telling them to buy more guns.  So, yeah, just ignore it.

If you had a cat that was shitting all over the house wouldn't you scold it so that it wouldn't do it again?

Dude.  Are you nuts?  Have you ever heard Coast to Coast AM???

So I never believed in ghosts until we moved into this house. We had ghosts, in a big bad creepy way. I noticed they always do the same thing in the same places, like they're just a recording of someone who used to live here. I don't think they're really interactive, or that they can do anything to you.

Then we remodeled, and they mostly stopped. Go figure!

Maybe a renovation is in order?

I agree with you Nigel, I've seen two "ghosts" (one of them on a few different occasions) and I have come to the conclusion that they are a genuine phenomena, but that they are not the remainders of people who have died.

I think they are exactly what you stated, recordings.  Perhaps the materials around the phenomena have something to do with the 'playback' feature?

Well, that blows.  I wanted to hang around for a couple of centuries, fucking with my descendents.

But if they're playbacks, I wonder if there's a way to fuck with them, WOMP style?
