A Strange Invisible Friend.
You know the reason you get chills when you hear something? When you feel certain emotions, a part of your brain sends a message through your nerves to your muscles in your skin to cause them to get tense. When the skin on your body gets tight, your hairs stand up and you get the feeling of chills. Has this ever happened to you before? Reddit user RedHeadedBug tells her story about her experience with her daughter one night that leaves an eerie feeling inside.
“One night I’m sitting in bed and I start hearing my daughter babbling. I look at the monitor and see her standing up in her crib. BTW, we have been teaching her ASL since she was about 3 months old. I can see her signing things like “nice” and “silly” and “fun” and oddly enough “no”, “don’t like” and “bear”. When I get to her room I ask who is she talking to and she signs “friend” and “bear.” I tell her that no, Bear (her stuffed toy) is in bed behind her but she just giggles at me and signs “silly” and “mommy”. I ask her who Friend Bear is and her response literally gave me chills because she doesn’t speak well yet but she managed to say, very clearly and with the most serious face a 20 month old can pull off, ‘No name, no name, shhhhh.'”
A Tragic Discovery.
We only know what happens out in public, or do we? Reddit user truevwlove tells about a time where her daughter’s baby monitor picked up someone else’s interactions and lets just say the commotion was horrifying…
“I was in my daughter’s bedroom cleaning while she was playing in her crib. I had her monitor turned down, but when I noticed the red lights moving, signaling noise, I turned it up. I heard, plain as day, a child screaming something along the lines of ‘I’m sorry, no!! Please no!!!’ The worst part is that I could actually hear him being hit. Not slapped, but seriously beat. I ran outside hoping to hear the child scream from a house so I could call the police, but I couldn’t zero in on it. Such a horrible feeling, not being able to stop this poor child from being beat. I never looked at any of my neighbors the same.”
A Horrifying Twist.
Should Reddit user GRZMNKY be creeped out or not? Do you think something eerie was going on, the wires were crossed with another electrical force, or was it just the baby monitor acting up? In any case, I think I would be creeped out!
“I was at a friend’s house and her baby monitor had a camera built in and was installed at the foot of the crib. We are watching a movie when the receiver’s sound sensor spikes and the screen goes white. She picks it up, and all you can make out on the screen is an eerie face. We go running into the room and her kid is sound asleep. About 10 minutes later the same thing happens. I get up quietly and sneak into his room, while she stays on the couch. I catch the kid standing up in his crib, with his face right up against the monitor. He looks over at me and quickly lays down and acts like he is asleep. A few nights later she tells me the same thing happened to the monitor, but her boy was sitting on the couch next to her.”
An Unexplained Jingle.
Well this one makes me feel a little uneasy! Reddit user winglamo shares her story about when she was an in home care nurse for a lady with dementia and unexplained things began happening.
“We had a baby monitor in her room so we could hear when she was waking up. We also had bells pinned to her sheets so that when she was trying to get up on her own (fall risk) we would hear the bells jingle. It was common to hear her down in her room talking to “that man.” Asking “who are you?” and “what is it?” to an empty room. One evening her and I were in the living room together and I heard the bells start jingling on their own over the baby monitor. There was no ceiling fan, the AC/heat wasn’t running, no windows were open.”
Do you think something was in the room other than the older woman? Was the woman really talking to someone?
