I was a new nurse, only out of nursing school for a short time. I was living in a house that had spirits of its own and was going through a somewhat troubling time in my personal life. Writing this story brought back not only memories of the events that happened, but of memories of that troubling time in my life, so I knew I had to walk some dark hallways to be able to put this story on paper. While the story was not hard to remember in detail, it was rather disturbing and hard for me to keep it toned down to make it appropriate for younger readers. There were many events that I did not include because of the graphic nature of them. But the events that I did include in the story are all based on actual events that I experienced.
I spent many years after the events of this story, researching medical diseases of the mind, looking for answers to my many questions, but always feeling deeply in my soul that there was more to the answer than a medical diagnosis. I had witnessed things with my own eyes that could not be explained by traditional medicine, doctors or psychiatrists.
It made me wonder how many others had suffered with these same experiences and been told that they were ill, crazy or insane.
I believe from my own personal experiences through this event and many others that I have witnessed and have yet to tell about, that there are unseen forces in this world that make themselves known to us when it suits them, we only see them, when we open our eyes.
