ever bad or scary. I never gave much thought to the things that went on while we lived there, but looking back there were many crazy things going on in that house! We lived there for eight years. It was a great home.

I used to live in Youngstown, Ohio from the age of 8 till I was 17. I was adopted, and we lived in a house on Idora Ave. I debated about telling this story because of the skeptical folk out there, but they said that the truth is the light. So, here it is.
My adopted mother and I moved into this lovely house when I was about 8 or so from Boardman. My mother loved the house as I did also because it was much more spacious than our small little apartment in Boardman. The first day we moved in I was rooting around in the attic, and I found these incredibly old books about witchcraft. I showed them to my mother who immediately threw them out. At first everything was pretty normal there, save for the madness I was enduring from my adopted mom, but that's another story.
Anyway, right around the time my mother made the attic my bed room things started to change. I would have strange dreams and wake up in other parts of the bedroom which was actually 3 rooms in one (the attic was huge. ) I was also waking up to feeling something scratching my legs and feet. I was terrified and almost too afraid to tell my mother due to the whipping I was sure to encounter. So I kept it to myself until my mother started showing signs of being affected by this presence. My mom was a drinker and what started to happen when she drank is this. She would seem to take on the characteristics of someone else. Her voice would change; she began walking with a limp and other things that I knew weren't quite right.
I confided in my grandma Kay at the time and really she didn't know what to tell me other than to pray, so I did. Well, one evening I went to bed early and was awakened to a voice telling me to go downstairs and pray for my mother. I was 12 by this time, so I just jumped up and went downstairs and prayed at her bedroom door. NOW (this is where it gets deep. ) As I was praying I heard a voice come out of my mother, and it said ''help me!'' but her lips didn't move! So I ran over to her and laid my hands on her and began to shout and pray as loudly as I could! Then another voice came out of her, and it sounded like an old man, the voice said ''LEAVE ME ALONE!'' That was NOT my Mother speaking, so I pleaded the blood of Jesus and screamed. I ran out of her room only for her to awaken moments later crying asking me what had happened. Now from that moment on the house was alive with paranormal activity.
I also recall one morning when my mother and I were arguing in the kitchen, in mid-sentence the kitchen table levitated and split right down the middle and broke in half right in front of us both! Also my Mother suffered with this ''spiritual attack'' for many years; however, I left home at 17 and never looked back. My Mother has since passed away. God rest her soul. And because of what I experienced there it prepared me for the supernatural life I was to have in my near future.
