Again Searching For The Scary Old Lady

So last night I had another dream of the freaky house in the woods. As usual the dream starts with me walking down this two track trail out in the middle of nowhere, and coming up on the old house. The house itself is three story's and looks to be built out some sort of paneling that has been weathered grey. kind of like an old barn with out paint. Again i go inside (although I don't really want to) and begin my search for the scary old lady (that I don't want to see). I walk thru the houses many rooms and notice that each room is exactly the way it was the last time I was here. It was the same old furniture, the same old pictures on the walls, and the same pealing wallpaper. I make my way to the staircase and begin to climb up. Now when you look at the house from the outside you can clearly see a third floor, but i have only been on the third floor once, and that was when i was a young kid. so I get to the second floor and look around for the old woman like I always do. This time tho things are different. I walk around the corner of an L shaped hallway, and find the stairs leading to the third floor. Usually when I have this dream I can't help myself but to actively seek out the scary old lady I found in this house when i was young, but not this time. When I looked up the stairs I could see a flickering light coming from somewhere at the top. I immediately freeze up. All I want to do is run away and get the hell out of this house, but i can't seem to make my legs work or take my eyes of the flickering light. The next thing I know I'm waking up to my wife shaking me. I am drenched in sweat. and crying like a little girl. my wife told me that she woke up to me whimpering and that I soon started screaming like a crazy person. I sat up and cried at the edge of the bed for almost twenty minuets before i was able to calm down. I was not able to go back to sleep.

the old lady in most eastern european beliefs is the physical form of death, and the house being in ruins signifies rot/decay. the passing etc.

Thats creepy i have never had a dream like that i hope not
