Alright, so ever since me and my family moved into our current house I have witnessed some paranormal things. The first thing that happened was I was laying on the floor in front of the living room TV when I was around 7 or 8 and I saw a yellow orb float past and then disappeared. I didn't really think anything of it until I had watched a video saying that ghosts or spirits can appear as orbs.
The second thing that has happened is I was laying in my bed and my bedroom door was open and you can see into the hallway from my bed. I was looking straight forward, but from the corner of my eye I saw a shadow figure that was the height of maybe a 5 year old. I was around 11 when this happened so I got scared and ran into my parents room and told them, but they convinced me that it was just my eyes playing tricks, but as I got older I have started to think otherwise.
Another thing that happened when I was around that age was when I had a friend over and my grandmother was watching us and she was in the kitchen and I was talking to her and my friend was standing next to me, when all of the sudden the timer flew off of the counter top. I have asked my grandmother if she remembered it and she said no, but my friend said that she remembered it happening.
When I was around 13 I was awake really late (around 1 or 2am) and I kept hearing my little sisters toothbrush, which had a suction cup on the end, being stuck to the sink and then being picked up again so it was making the suction noise. I started walking to the bathroom and as I got closer the noise stopped so I opened the door to find her toothbrush on the floor in front of the sink, which is weird because my sister usually leaves her toothbrush right next to the toothbrush holder. I got scared and ran back into my room.
When I was 15 I had my first panic attack because I was home alone and I was in my room when I had the feeling that someone had come into the room. Then the feeling of uneasiness and fear over powered me and I ended up having a bad panic attack (shaking, crying, etc.). Recently, I have been hearing footsteps running in the hallway outside of my bedroom door while I'm home alone.
I have started to think that it is a child ghost because of the shadow, running, toothbrush incident, and the timer flying off the shelf because to me it seems playful, but I don't think a child spirit would be able to make me have a panic attack and scare me that badly. What do you think? Anyway, sorry for the long story and thank you to whoever read it all and took the time to comment.
