Does/Has anyone lived in a haunted house?

Does/Has anyone lived in a "haunted" house.

I have had a few "happenings" that I can't brush off. I also remember from a young age, being able to sense the gravity of certain things/places.

Share your experiences, or thoughts on the paranormal.



P.S. Please don't thinnk I'm crazy or something...to many people already do.

Hard to say really. Lots of places are spooky. I remember the old 'Unsolved Mysteries' tv show though, and all the recreations lol

In the mid 70's I lived in an apartment on Newbury Street in Boston that was inhabited by the ghost of a cat named Madison.

He was a very friendly guy. you would feel him brush up against your legs, and if I put a bowl of water out for him, it would empty in a day or two. never put out food, tho. many folks thought I had a cat, but no, just Madison.

Those views were from ghosts. They can not post though.

We live with a ghost named George. He likes to turn the oven timer on at 3am.

I grew up in a graveyard...truely, dad was clergy and the house was in the middle of the graveyard. I learned to read by fingering the letters on the tombstones and monuments. Seems I get along with the spirits as I've never been bothered by those who have passed from this life, but I have been aware of their presence.

I won't say haunted....because I've been told the spirits I've seen are my own, supposedly with me all the time. So if I move, so do they..

I've been aware of them for some time, but I don't see them very often, actually haven't for a while.

When I travel, especially to someplace for the first time, I am keenly aware of those who have passed the streets well before me. I actually find it comforting and wish I could actually get a clearer view of the past.
