Me and my mom live in a upstairs apartment. From what i know the place was built ten years ago. We have lived in the apartments for four years. Weird stuff has started happening in my room (and only in my room), since my neighbor has moved out and new neighbors have moved in next door. One night, as i was lying in bed on my way to sleep, i heard music coming from next door. thinking that it was my neighbor, i thought about it until the next day when i told my mom. My mom looked confused and said the neighbor moved out a few days ago. I didn't know she moved out so i was shocked because i knew what i heard. My mother works graveyard so she is not home at night. The next couple of nights were normal. About a week later, we had new neighbors moving in next door to us. They were young male collage kids. Things started to get weird. I suddenly became afraid to sleep in my room. I would stay up later then usual, and i would dread getting tired. Every time i would start drifting off to sleep, i would be jerked back to reality by a sudden feeling of being watched. I keep my room pitch dark, and i keep my fan on at night. I thought i was just being paranoid, so i thought nothing about it until last night. I recently have been having nightmares, i don't remember any of them but i do know i will wake up with a strange feeling like someone else is with me. Since a couple nights ago, i haven't been feeling safe sleeping in my room especially at night. Every time i get in my bed, i try not to think scary thoughts, but i always do. I go to bed terrified and wake up that way. I've been noticing that every time i go in my room to get something, that it doesn't 'feel right', its hard to describe the feeling. Its like im not welcome in my own room. The suspicion of ghosts has not crossed my mind until now. I haven't told my mom anything, because knowing her she probably wont believe me. I tired sleeping out in the living room but the outside lights always keep me awake. I have general anxiety disorder if it helps. What should i do? please help im so scared!
