I love a good old fashioned spine-tingling ghost story. I would love to hear yours! Especially personal experiences, but a good yarn would be great, too!

I'm not much concerned that they be real, just real fun! :D

This photo and story got me thinking about it - Creepy!

About 6 years ago, my husband and I were living in a trailer park in Abilene, Texas. As far as I know, nothing strange happened while we lived there the first year.

My friend came to live with us and this was quite a great time for me because we're very much alike and could always find something to do. Never a dull moment with us two. :)

To explain a little about my friend - she's pretty special. She's psychic and as long as I've known her, always had stuff going on around her, be it spirits, ghosts and just plain weird unexplainable stuff. In fact, she is probably having something weird happening to her now. I get a call about something a few times a week, lol.

When she moved in, everything was quiet, but as time passed weird things started happening. Faucets would come on by themselves. Our power went out randomly one night and we were the only people who didn't have power around us. Footsteps, growls outside her window, our cats would act strange.

The strangest thing that happened though was mainly witnessed by her, though I was somewhat involved.

One night I was up late playing an online game, my husband was asleep next to me. My friend was probably in her room. Suddenly, I noticed an an odor of gas. I stopped what I was doing an got up went outside the room. Immediately stepping out of our bedroom is the bathroom direction to the right. This is where the cat box was and the door was closed. This is not a very good situation for anyone involved, so I opened up the door. I saw my friend in there and I said "Oh, sorry! I didn't know anyone was in here. I was just opening up the door for the cats." She said it was ok and laughed. I told her I was just getting up to go check the stove to see if the pilot light was out and the gas was leaking. I went and did all this, said goodnight and went back to the bedroom.

The next morning, she knocked on our door and asked if she could talk to me. I said, sure. She asked how many times I had gotten up last night. I said only the once when you saw me getting up to check on the gas. She said Uh huhhhh. She looked a bit freaked out and I asked her if something was wrong. So she told me what happened to her that same night.

That night, she told me that she had been in her room. She really needed to go to the bathroom but she did NOT want to leave her room. She said she had felt something was off and had a feeling she shouldn't open the door. But what can you do? If you have to go, you have to go. So she said she got up and went to the door and opened it and when she did she saw me almost passing by her door but I stopped. She said I had a big black T-Shirt on and I just stood there and turned only my head to look at her. I had this weird look on my face like a grin and I only said 3 words "I smell gas!" and then I continued into the dark living room, just disappearing. She said she could hear me talking to the cats in a strange, high pitched voice she had never heard before. She told me she had thought this pretty odd, but seeing as weird things happen to her a lot, she just shrugged it off and went to the bathroom. So, a few minutes later, I opened the door (again) and this is where the original story began.

To be honest, we are still pretty freaked out by this. She said that whatever she saw was impersonating me, but not very well. It even had the wrong shirt on (the one I had on that night was dark grey with yellow letters on it). She tells me she thinks it was something like a doppelganger, but we're not entirely sure.

She told me something in the trailer did NOT like her. I saw it shove her into a chair, though I just saw it as an orange orb about the size of a pea. She says it looked like a big dark shadow to her.

And as far as she is concerned, that trailer was one of the scariest places she has ever lived in, and this is saying a lot. I was pretty surprised when she told me this a couple of years ago since nothing ever bothered me before she came. I've always been a little envious that she could see so much more than I could. She says that I can but I put up huge mental blocks and barriers because deep down I really don't want to see. After being touched once on the leg, and got nosebleeds from nightmares involving entities chasing me through a house, I believe she is right.

That reminds me of the time I was taken to the cemetary as a little baby to bring flowers to my grandfather. Apparently I acted very strange and scared and wouldn't stop crying.
