Hello! So I've never posted here before, and mostly I don't talk about these things cuz I don't want to sound nuts...but I thought I'd put this out there and see what you all think.
My son recurrently complains about something scary in one particular corner of his room. We can go weeks with no complaints and then he'll complain several nights in a row. The room used to be my oldest daughters and we never had any issues with her in there. BTW, the house is only 5 years old, we built it.
I have had it happen to me several times when getting ready for work in the morning that I'll be in our closet and it will seem as though the light gets brighter for a moment or two, then goes back to normal. When this happens, I always seem to catch a face 'floating' out of the corner of my eye, but when I look directly it's not there (have always questioned if I'm just tired). It's intermittent with no pattern.
Then, a few nights ago I was laying in my youngest daughter's bed with her, I had fallen asleep in there (sleep training not going well). When I woke up, I had to use the bathroom, but I just layed there because she was restless and didn't want to wake her. I was looking out into the hall where there is an open to below foyer and the staircase. The stair lights were on so it was well lit. I thought I saw a bunch of black fluttering. I looked away and looked back again, and I still saw it. It looked like hundreds of little black moths that fluttered in a group and got closer and closer, eventually landing on the ceiling near the corner of my son's room (not near where he sees what ever it is he sees), and right outside the room I was in. I just laid there feeling totally nuts, but watched as a few seconds later, they started to release from the ceiling and flutter as a group down the hall towards oldest daughter's room, but instead of making it down the hall, they faded away.
I also have dreams, and they seem to come in groups (and have had dreams like this for many years), of a threatening 'something' that is more or less stalking me. It freaks me out so bad that sometimes I'm afraid to turn over in bed. Or like one time, I woke from a dream like that when I was just dating DH, got so freaked out I left my apartment and went to my mom's. I was so sure something was behind me I couldn't even turn around, and had a hard time backing out of my parking spot. In these dreams, whatever it is will follow me where ever I go, like if I go spend the night at a friends, it'll find me there...
What do you all think?? Am I nuts with an overactive imagination?? What the heck were those moths about?
