Years ago: my father and I were travelling through Chatham. Just before we got to that stoplight there. I said dad look! There was a guy almost could see through him walking near the middle of the road.|
He had on black leather pants and a black jacket and slicked back black hair. And wore boots. He did turn and look at us but I could tell by the way he was dressed he lived well before my time. Almost favored young James Dean.
But to this day
I've never forgotten that ghostly stranger walking through Chatham VA.|

This isn't really a ghost sitting per SE. It's more of a ''haunting. '' it's a long story having been something that I endured for about 6 months. I'll try to shorten it still trying to maintain the most important parts. I was about 24 years old and for the past 6 months I'd experienced severe depression sleeplessness frustration and irritability. I prayed and did everything I could to discover the source. I could not for the life of me determine what my problem was. I became a Recluse and very unpleasant to be around. I would cry myself to sleep every night. I'd awaken a few hours later crying. I awake crying. I was unhappy to put it mildly.. Moreso I was making my family miserable.
I prayed and prayed to no avail. I ended up quitting a job and college. I sincerely thought I was losing my mind. I just knew that I was. I'd sit in my room and be full of tears. I'd drive around going no where. I even turned my car toward a huge tree headed 29 n between Gretna and sycamore VA. One night after another crying binge a voice (that I now know was the holy spirit) told me to go to the computer and enter a name. Out of the blue the name of a former boyfriend popped into my mind. I'd not thought of or had contact with him for many years. As soon as I entered his name it popped up on the obituary page. Immediately I screamed for my mother to come and read his obituary. At that very moment I actually felt a calmness and all of the past 6 months worth of dread lifted. It was the most beautiful feeling.
As I sat there reading obit over and over my mother said she had had him on her mind for about a week. I called other family to tell them what had just happened. They too had had him on their minds. I discussed everything w / my mother. All we could conclude was that he wanted me to know he'd died. His spirit did not care what effect it was having on me in trying to let me know he had passed..He just wanted me to know that he had passed. You see exactly 6 months prior he was in a car accident in De his obit read--yes 6 months! The exact time that my ''haunting'' began. I do not know if he loved me so much that he just had to let me know or if it was something sinister. All I do know is that it was taking me away from here. I thank none but god from bringing me through. I never want to experience anything like that again.
