Odd? Honey, I believe you probably have just tapped the surface. I don't think you are really scared of what anyone here might think, but to write it, is to face it, on your own. You came here, perhaps, to be in good company while you relived it.........
You will find support here, and castigation, as well. Pay no attention, is my advice,: take what you need to help, and disregard the rest. For it cannot live within you untold forever, common sense suspended, replaced, or present at all.
At least for my part, I am not here to judge, but to seek knowledge, and affirm and reaffirm, for this is the scret to living in this hell, where otherwise we would be lost and/or overcome by it..... Some are here to judge. Some are here to share. Some are here to create and foment judgement. And some are just here, cause they were given no choice to be anywhere else, and struggle to retain something of their true selves, even through the vast manipulative seaa of apparent "opinion" and individual judgement......
Take care, and I mean this in no codespeak. Please, take care of yourself. Share what you will, and be healthier for it, I hope..
Welcom, for my part.

I am hoping someone can make everything become clearer and help me to make more sense. I guess I am a bit selfish with my story because it's personal to me and I am guilty of rolling my eyes every once in a while and scoffing at tales of mysterious origin. I know I shouldn't do that and it is something I am working on.
Again, thank you for giving me great advice. I have only scratched the surface and, to be honest, there's a lot I still can't talk about. I know I have to be careful but I felt strongly about writing today.

as a fellow lurker, i wanted to encourage you that after reading many,many posts about peoples "accounts/stories" on this wonderful site, I really appreciate the way you write.
In my observation, you are extremely concise with your recollections without a lot of unnecessary descriptions and rabbit trails, and certainly not drawing conclusions about what things might mean, or how incidents fit together.
You just lay out the scene for what you remember and that let's the readers analyze it more objectively.Thank you for that.

Hi Malraux,I read your thread's first page,or most of it,last night-just wanted to ask-before you joined the military,do you have any strange memories from childhood,surreal things,inexplicable? Strange dreams,ever,especially with concurring marks on your body when waking,you know like a procedure being done on your arm in a dream with weird futuristic-looking medical/tech devices-and then awaken with a mark or physical pain in that part of your anatomy that was worked on in the dream? Stuff like that,especially also paranormal-seeming events surrounding you and/or members of your family or your home.
If you can honestly recall no events or situations out of the ordinary,no high strangeness,no inexplicable irregularities,etc I would look at the possibility that this is related to your service in the military.
My apologies if you already touched on the questions I asked,I will come back to this thread later+start reading where I left off.
And s+f for you.For talking about this even if its uncomfortable for you.You did nothing wrong-and you have every right to discuss these matters,its Your life here,this site caters for topics like these,so at your own pace that's comfy for You,and no one else,bring here what puzzles you.

Tetra50 I thought that was a wonderful reply
@MALRAUX-i came back to start reading where I left off-and I see you did indeed have inexplicable+strange childhood experiences,well lemme read on-this is a most interesting thread
Tetra50: you are really awesome! I don't care if anyone reads this thread, all that matters is that it was written. I don't know how to pm....or whatever it is called...but if I did! Lol
I am loving following this thread and Im not surprised it is starting to ring some bells for others. I had mentioned earlier that I thought it might.
I find the headaches interesting as well. It seems every time something is about to happen you seem to get them.
I am curious as to just what the tag was that kept turning up. I mean the actual name of it. Might or might not be a clue, never know.
Did the lady ever actually get into your house before you got her out? I find it odd she would try with a dog that clearly didnt want her in.
I also wonder how much weight can be given to your mom fighting her own demons... Perhaps her way of saying something....???
Have you ever asked your kids if they have had any unusual moments they may not of mentioned to you???
Sorry for all the questions, I am just intrigued.

I noticed you had mention that your bells were starting to ring. Are you going to share anything that has come to mind because of this thread? Be interesting to see what connection there may be. At least I hope you decide to share. I dont think the OP would mind and she might also find it a bit more supportive as well.
The good news is the trolls havent shown up yet.
