I said that woman with the cow. I looked back and she was no longer there, and my parents did not see her at all. I have always wondered if anyone has seen her. I have never heard any stories about what I saw that day . This is why I'm writing the story to see if anyone has experienced this.

My family used to live at the Bagdad Apartments behind Stars on Ohio Street. Let me just start off by saying that I have never experienced anything quite like what I experienced while I was living there. Something is wrong with that place. I remember hearing my name being called clear as day. Once I swear it sounded like my mother was calling me. I even got up all annoyed and asked her what she wanted, but she said it wasn't her.
The apartment was very small with only one bedroom. Which meant my sister and I slept on the couches in the living room. One night, my sister and I were already lying down, and my dad was watching TV sitting on a folding chair. I was falling asleep when I felt something punch me on the side of my stomach. Right away I got up, thinking it was my sister who had hit me, to find her asleep on the other couch. My dad was still in the room and saw me react.
Another time I was in the bedroom with my mother watching TV. Now I can't explain exactly what happened to me. I have never heard of it happening to anyone. It scared me so much. One time I was sitting down watching TV when all of a sudden I felt myself get hit on the side of the head, like where my right temple is at. As soon as this happened my vision and hearing changed. All I saw and heard was what I could best describe as TV static. I can still remember being scared and saying ''Mom, I can't see. I can't see mom. '' It lasted maybe several seconds, but I can't forget that experience. Obviously it was very strange.
I suffered insomnia while living at that place. I could not sleep. I would not sleep. If I did, it was only for a few hours. I was afraid. The night light did not ease my fears. There was one night when I managed to fall asleep. I woke up at one point during the night. Against the wall where the night light was at I saw a small shadow. It was against the wall, really like a shadow, and it appeared to be tip toeing. You would not believe how shocked I was to see that. I didn't know what to think. I remember covering my face with my blanket and repeating the Lord's Prayer. At the time that was one of the only prayers I had memorized. My Mother had told me to pray whenever I felt scared, so that was what I did. As I got older, I memorized Psalm 23, which is a prayer people use to ward off evil.
