Something was following me on the street

Before you read this please note that I am a believer in god and I do believe in other beings. So if you don't believe in any of that and are just going to automatically call me nuts for believing, please leave.

Last night I was walking around my neighborhood and the streets surrounding it. I like walking at around 2-3 in the morning because there no people awake at that hour and there are very few cars to come speeding down the road to hit me. Last night though I went a bit farther than I normally go at nighttime and started walking around a completely new neighborhood. Everything was fine until I got to a dark section of a street where the street where a giant house sat and the light wasn't working, and trees made it hard to see beyond the dark section. I was freaked out but continued. As I walked I passed a house with a porch light on. I decided to sit on the porch for a few minutes so I wouldn't feel as freaked out. As I sat though I had an extremely uneasy feeling come over me. I was this feeling of fear like I was watched or stalked. We have cougars and bears in our area so I immediately thought it was that. I got up and made myself look big and walked back into the darkness. I kept looking behind me but saw nothing. It felt like something was running up right behind me, but each time I turned I saw nothing. I continued back down the street and passed the giant house again, but this time I felt a stronger wave of fear come over me. It was like someone was watching me from that house. I could sense something was there. I made myself look angry so whoever or whatever it was would leave me alone. But it didn't leave. Normally on my walks if I pass a sketchy area I just go passed it and the feeling stops. But this feeling didn't stop. I walked all the way back into my neighborhood and down my street and it was there. It felt like something was chasing me, but I saw nothing there. I shouted at it and told it to go away and I prayed to god. But it didn't stop. No matter how much I prayed and tried to be unafraid, it wouldn't stop. It could have just been hallucinations as I will admit my mother suspects I might have a disorder. But this has NEVER happened to me before. All the fake things ive seen or heard have normally occurred in my room or if I'm home alone, not when I'm returning home from walking. Walking is my safe place, the thing I can do to forget everything and just be another creature on this planet and let myself go. I don't think ive ever hallucinated on my walks, or outside in general. I actually prefer sleeping outside because I feel safer.

Anyways, sorry for the long paragraph. I just want an honest answer on what you other spiritual people think it might be. I'm open for any answer. If I really am hallucinating just tell me. If not please explain what you think it could be. Thanks.

Help us keep this site organized and clean. Thanks!

  • Weird. I lost power to my large house the other night and woke up early in the morning. I couldn't get back to sleep and I was staring out the window when this person walked past. I was bored so I decided to have a little fun and followed them. I'd run up close them then hide just to see what they would do.

    The funny thing was they tried to look all tough and shit but I could tell they were scared out of their minds, so I followed them home.

    I eventually got bored again and left but it was fun while it lasted.

  • That's nothing unusual. The body snatchers were smelling your warm blood. It happens to everybody.

  • Over active imagination.

  • You were afraid from the beginning, and you only reported subjective feelings, which could already be biased from your fear from the beginning as well. Fear is activated by the amygdala, and, once it's activated, it's common for it to keep active, specially if the stimulus was that large, and even more so if you actually believe in ghosts. People who don't believe, just from listening to ghost stories, can get panic reactions like these for hours or days. So no, I don't think there is any good reason to believe there were ghosts or worse there. Keep praying to give you strength, but I suggest you to avoid thinking about the house, since it's going to trigger your limbic system again. I think you should just focus on what makes you feel safe and protected. Read favorite, inspirational passages from the Bible (or your holy book) or your denomination's prayer books, interact with people who you feel safe with, and don't think too much about it. If the problem persists, getting treatment can help. Religious people are treated for panic attacks and other types of mental illness as well, me included.

  • I stayed in a haunted house but nothing happened.

    Next night the locals told me of the scary stories they knew and I didn’t sleep much that night.

    So there you go.

    Mind is powerful.

  • Who said that there were no people awake or out at 2 AM? Remember...
    "Darkness falls across the land
    The midnight hour is close at hand
    Creatures crawl in search of blood
    To terrorize y’all’s neighborhood"

  • I think your mind was just playing tricks on you. And no offense, but I remember you talking about your difficult relationship with family, and how you want to run away. There might indeed be a chance you're mentally ill. But my opinion might not be too relevant here, as I have never even felt being watched.

  • You have schizophrenia. See a therapist and get some meds for it and it will probably go away. Good luck.

  • Hey! We don't take kindly to folks who enjoy going on promenades at three in the morning around here...

  • Alone on a dark night it's easy to have your imagination run wild.

  • I think it would be funny to see you walking outside

  • I like going for walks late at night in bad neighborhoods with all my bling on, and 100 dollar bills hanging out of my pockets so I can practice my Ling Chee.

  • Oh sorry, must've forgotten to muzzle the pets again.
    And don't worry about the things in your room. They'll take your soul eventually.

      • Never mind, I was making a lame ass joke.

      • The soul taking comment was the weirder of the two things he said, not the pet muzzling thing. There are no demons lurking around
