This seems a little far-fetched, and certainly not very rational, but I want to know if my story resonates with anyone. Perhaps others have
experienced similar things, or there is some mythology or folklore associated with this.
I have always had an interest in the paranormal, though I am a skeptic by nature and not inclined to believe in anything supernatural. However, I've
recently been involved in ghost investigations with an established paranormal group, just as a bit of a weekend hobby.
At most of the investigations, I haven't really seen much to convince me to change my way of thinking, but there was one recently that came really
close. There were certainly a few things that occured that were more than a little spooky - readings on the electronic equipment, unexplained aromas
and shadows, seeming manipulation of objects, temperature changes, and even direct communication through various devices (though not while I was
operating any of it, so I took this with a grain of salt). According to the communication, there were multiple entities present, and one of these
intimidated the others and perhaps could have been interpreted as demonic.
Now I've heard that these entities are known to follow people home from time to time, and that they can even haunt, torment, possess, etc. I never
really thought much of this prospect, especially since I don't necessarily believe such entities even exist, and so I've never really put much into
the "protection" rituals or prayers that are used after ghost hunts.
OK, so that's the background. Now here's the stretch....
Over the last couple weeks or so, I've noticed an increasing amount of BUGS in my life. I've caught half a dozen spiders in my bedroom (including two
rather large ones on my bed!). There are beetles crawling around near my front porch. A big wasp hovered over my head at the office yesterday. A few
days go, I was outside having a nighttime cigarette and a big moth aggressively tried to fly into my ear, then buzzed into the hood of my coat, which
really freaked me out. Just a few minutes ago - what prompted me to write this post, in fact - I felt something crawling up my leg and instincively
smashed down on it. When I pulled my jeans down, I was horrified to see a great big yellow jacket, which had been mere inches from my groin when I
Probably as the result of all of these tangible experiences, but perhaps not, I am continually sensing creepy crawlies on the edge of my vision,
flying or scampering toward me, or even on my body itself. But most of the time, I'm just swatting at air. If this keeps up, I'm going to go
I think I'm just like most people when it comes to these creatures - I hate them! It's only just occured to me that there could be a link between the
ghost investigation and incest infestation. For one, it doesn't seem to be the right time of year for all this stuff. Additionally, nothing like this
has happened to me in the past.
I live in a major city, in a house. I am about 30 years old, male, and have no history of mental illness. Finally, just so you don't have to ask, I do
not use drugs of any kind, take prescription medication, or drink alcohol, and have not in several months. So these are not narcotics-induced
