I friend of mine sent me this on Facebook and it inspired me. I guess I'm too dumb to figure out how to embed it.

while tucking in my son he casually told me he lived a life a long time ago where his name was Gerald and he had a brother Cole who was also his business partner and they died together in a car crash so plz join me in not sleeping at all tonight

Do you have a creepy story either real or imagined? I'll start with a simple sentence.

Monday night, I crashed hard at like 8:45 pm. I had ran 5 miles and then went to a hard yoga class after and totally exhausted myself. I woke up the next morning, went to take a shower and when I was walking back towards my bed from the bathroom, I noticed the bottle of bleach sitting on the floor next to my bed. I don't know how it got there or why. I was either sleep-walking or someone was in my home. Guess we'll never know.

Good thing I wasn't drinking the bleach I guess....glass half full.

I used to spend the night with my cousin when I was a kid. He would go through periods of sleep-walking. It seriously freaked me out. He had a couple of hunting knifes in his room and I would hide them after he went to sleep.

Three days after my mother passed, I was very close to joining her. I remember weeping and saying how much I missed her. Her urn fell over.
Since you gave me a serious story, I will share mine. My mother was seriously ill and I'd just brought her back from dialysis. It always wore her out so I helped her to bed. I went into another room in her house and got on the computer. After about a hour of surfing an intense thought came to my mind. "Your life is about to change forever". I went to her room dreading it. And she had passed away.

This seems like a perfect lead in and thread for one of my all time favorite reddit posts

Here we go!


It started with this post asking for legal advice
On the 15th of April I found a yellow post-it note in a handwriting that wasn't mine on my desk reminding me of some errands I had to do, but told literally nobody about. While odd, I chalked it up to something I did in my sleep, thinking maybe in my half-awake state I scrawled it so it didn't appear to be my handwriting. I threw it out and thought little of it.
On the 19th, I found another post it note on the back of my desk chair, in the same handwriting as the previous note, telling me to make sure I "saved my documents". I was freaked out, but there were no other signs of a break-in, so I set up a web-cam in my house aimed at my desk and used a security-cam app for it to record after detecting movement.
On the 28th, I woke up to find another post-it note, this one saying, "Our landlord isn't letting me talk to you, but it's important we do." I immediately checked the webcam's folder on my computer and found nothing from the night before, but my computer's recycling bin had been emptied, which I am certain I did not do recently, indicating someone had noticed the webcam and deleted the files. (They were just saved straight to a folder on my desktop called "Webcam".
Today, on the 1st of May, I found another post it note, this time on the outside of my door, with nothing written on it– and there also appeared to be post-its on many other doors in my apartment complex, all blank, in varying colors.
Do I have any legal recourse here? I have no proof except for the post-its, but those are written by my pen and on my post-it notes, so conceivably I could have faked them. Would contacting the police get me into any trouble, if they can't determine an outside source for this? I just want to make sure I'm not wasting anyone's time.
Should I consult my landlord? Those also living in the complex?
EDIT: I pulled up a letter I received from my landlord back when I moved in, and the handwriting is identical. Could this count as evidence?
Guy gets a few responses, then this guy replies

You seem sincere and this doesn't appear to be the plot of a Ray Bradbury short story.
It's possible that your landlord is leaving notes inside your apartment, but they don't make any sense in the context you're describing them.
It's likely that you are writing the notes yourself, but you are forgetting. Do you use post-it notes as reminders in any other parts of your life or job ?
Yes, this might be a mental health issue. You might be experiencing some sort of dissociative disorder.
Or it might be a physical problem. You mentioned that you have a very unusual narrow bedroom with no windows; is there a chance that you are not getting enough ventilation when you sleep, or that there is a carbon monoxide leak in the building ? A cheap CO detector (which you should have anyway) is a fast way to find out. You'll also have really bad headaches.
You know your own medical and mental history and your other experiences. If you think these incidents might be you, writing notes to yourself, there's no shame in getting somebody qualified to give you an opinion.
So the OP goes and gets a carbon monoxide detector and it most likely saved his life.


Thanks to everyone who sent suggestions and gave advice on how to proceeded– especially to those who recommended a CO detector... because when I plugged one in in the bedroom, it read at 100ppm.
TL;DR: I had CO poisoning and thought my landlord was stalking me.

What about the story of Blair Adams that appeared on Unsolved Mysteries more than a decade ago? Anyone familiar with it?

If interested, I’ll explain, but it’ll be later tonight.
