ahhhhh! why cant i???

Sleep that is! Its 3:03 am and my big butt can't fall asleep. I have a big bear next to me snoring away and I'm so jealous. Generally I'm the one who is asleep in seconds.

Anyone else awake in HF-land??

It's 1:11am here and I can't seem to turn my brain off. Everyone else here is passed right out. I've been having a hard time falling asleep for the last 5 months..

Me I have insomnia too.
I fall asleep fine but cannot stay asleep...feels like I am the only person in the world.

Sleep is going to be crucial to me these next 4 days and I can't pass out. I don't even have to sleep I just need to knock myself out some how. I'm sitting on my smartphone in hf-land reading about chickens and thinking about how excited I am to get mine this weekend. **** snoring bear. :/

So whatcha'll doin?

I am awake, but hopefully not for much longer. I stayed up way too late last night, which has thrown my sleep patterns off. It isn't entirely my fault that I was awake till the wee hours of the morning yesterday. My manager, coworker and I had been talking about the haunting of our back room at work (dead serious on that) and after I drove around the building, I felt incredibly creeped out. I was terrified all night, last night...it wasn't the scary stories about happenings in our back room. I've heard them before. It was the feeling/sense of something very real that disliked me enough to want to do me harm that had somehow followed me home from work. I know it sounds completely crazy, but I wasn't the only one who felt that way last night...both my manager and my coworker texted me at around 1am and asked if I was still awake and said they couldn't sleep because they felt totally creeped, like we do in the back room at night.

Well bad spirits can "tag" or attach themselves to you and come home with you and "reattach" to your home. Make friends with it and talk to it. Most of the time it'll calm your uneasiness and you'll feel better. The apartment I used to live in was haunted and that's how I felt better about it. Just an idea really.

I am just sitting here, actually I finally made a pot of coffee.
I woke up at one and just laid there for an hour, but I can't stand that, so here I am.
I love ghost stories and the paranormal in general.

Same here Susan. There are tons of haunted places around where I live and my friends and I love to go ghost hunting. I infact have seen quite a few orbs in real life not in just photos.

Fyi though if I do pass out. My bad.

I think it was maybe more my own uneasiness after the feeling I got driving behind our building last night (something that I always do when I leave work...call it a funny habit). This spirit at work is decidedly unfriendly. Several people (myself included) have seen a face in a certain area of the back room when it is dark and all have described it relatively the same. Each person who has seen the face and/or felt the presence has had no prior knowledge of the other incidents.

The first time I saw the face, I had worked at the store maybe a month. I had been sent to the back room to unload a cart of clothes into a certain bin and had my back to the corner of the back room with the most activity. It was dark. I kept feeling like I was being watched, but tried to shrug it off. Finally, I couldn't take it anymore and turned to see what was bothering me so much. I will never forget the face that I saw at the far end of the room. I screamed and sprinted to the front of the store. As soon as I reached the front, my manager looked at me and said "You saw it, didn't you?" I demanded to know what she was talking about and she told me about the spirit. Our donation attendants (all big tough guys) refuse to go back into that corner of the back room if the lights are out and don't even like going over there with the lights on after dark. One of our old managers was alone in the store one morning and had the cameras pulled up on the upstairs camera so that she could keep an eye on things (make sure no one who wasn't supposed to be there entered the store). She caught a glimpse of motion out of the corner of her eye on the camera in that part of the back room. Objects were moving around on one of the work stations back there, but no one was there. Another of the managers was finishing the closing paperwork in the upstairs office by herself. Suddenly, the door handle on the door leading into the stairwell between the office and the break room rattled like someone wanted in (we will usually the rattle door handle instead of knocking...weird habit, I know). She hopped up, ran over and popped open the door without really looking, and then ran back to the computer to finish the paperwork. When no one came into the office, she got up to check if someone was in the break room or stairwell. There was no one in either place, and there hadn't been enough time for someone to run off or hide. One of our coworkers in particular has repeatedly reported sitting the the break room in a specific spot by herself and feeling like someone grabbed the back of her leg under her chair.

It's not surprising that we have spirits and things at my work. I work for a Goodwill thrift store and we quite often get donated items from estates and from people who have passed on.
