I have a secret to share with you…. I am terrified of ghosts. It all started when I was a kid and to this day I am still scared of them. I must not be alone though as according to wikiepedia this is called phasmophobia.
As a kid when my friends were playing with a Ouija bored I would be hiding in a corner trying to ignore whatever it is they were doing. As they all huddled in the bathroom mirror to whisper redrum in hopes that some ghost would appear I would be practically peeing myself hoping this was a hoax. Even to this day I can not bring myself to look in a mirror in a dark room.
Call me crazy but I believe in ghosts. I have had quite a few encounters that have caused me to believe in them. This of course does not help my fear of ghosts out one little bit.
When I was 20 I was dating this guy whose sister I lived with. On Halloween we all sat around watching the TV to see if a ghost would appear in our local museum that is supposedly haunted. I was so terrified that I made him escort me to the bathroom. Of course I made him wait in the hall with his back to the door though as I did my business. I remember turning around from washing my hands and he was gone. I screamed his name and cried my way all the way to the living room where I slapped him for ditching me. Yes that is how scared I am.
I have never been on a ghost walk though I think that would be cool. I can not watch horror movies and I hate Halloween. Does this make a baby? Maybe so, but it is a fear and it is real.
Are you scared of ghosts? Do you believe in ghosts? What are you scared of?
