I have always believed stories about people seeing their own apparitions, apparitions of their dearly departed and other stories of that category. One thing I wasn’t sure about was doppelgangers. According to stories, a doppelganger is a creature that resembles you or someone you love down to every minute detail. It’s almost like the German equivalent of the Wendigo. I started to believe after a scary encounter with my own in 2009.
I had just gotten home from school and got a call from my girlfriend. She asked why I was walking towards a library on the other side of town. I told her I wasn’t, but she insisted that she saw me. He had the same red hair, pale skin, and slight limp in his right leg (I had pulled a tendon the previous week). I swore that whoever it was, it sure as heck wasn’t me. I figured she was joking or just plain lying. However, I remembered that jokes and lying weren’t exactly priorities for her. I figured she made a mistake and forgot about it.
A couple weeks later, I had just arrived for work and one of my co-workers asked “Weren’t you just here getting a soda half an hour ago?” I confirmed that I had been home half an hour ago. He insisted that someone who looked exactly like me had gotten a soda. I was starting to get freaked out because he barely knew me, so seeing me would stick out in his mind, since he had never seen someone like me before I started working there. I continued to tell him that he must’ve made a mistake, but he was adamant that he didn’t. I told him that i was an only child, so it couldn’t be a twin and it sure as heck wasn’t my cousins, because they all look different and only 2 of them live in the state, but many, many miles away. I tried to focus on work, but his claims put me so off-track, the manager sent me home early, and I made the excuse that I hadn’t slept well the previous night. She told me to take care of myself. When I got back, my girlfriend called me and asked if it was me she saw on a city bus this time. I told her it was. For some reason, she immediately hung up after I said that.

Okay so might not be scary per-say but I thought it was bizarre and kind of creepy. It was probably just a very odd coincidence, but let me tell you it was one hell of a coincidence. So I should probably start with a little background.
I didn’t start going to concerts until in college which is really weird because I’ve always been obsessed with music.
I love all genres and really don’t have any bands that I outright hate. But then again back in high school I was very bad around crowds.

I’m a 34-year-old female, living in East Tennessee. I have always had no choice but to believe in the paranormal. I grew up very quickly, due to having a disabled sister and my parents being very busy. I grew up Christian, and I have my own opinions on it that differ from others. Now, to the story- last summer, my mother was put in ICU. It was very traumatic for me, as she is my best friend. When the ER physician offered to pray for my mother, I was terrified. The prayers didn’t seem to help. I went up to the icu floor, saw how serious the situation really was, and retired to the icu restroom and hit my knees begging ANYONE out there to help my mother. I made a deal- that whoever would help, I will sacrifice myself to save my mother.
An overwhelming feeling of knowing that she would recover came over me (Keep in mind, it did NOT look good. I study medicine and knew how bleak this situation really was). I walked into the icu and told my mother, “You will recover, momma. Trust me.” She did trust me (this is because I am a pretty accurate empath and have never been wrong with my instincts). She was discharged in five days. It was a miracle.
A few weeks later, a dark entity started visiting me in my room. I never felt afraid of him. He was a comfort to me. He told me he was my “guardian.” He never said guardian angel, just guardian. My mother and nephew both saw him going through the house and ran to my room, as they always do when they are afraid, as I am the protector of the house. I told them it was just a shadow and not to be afraid. Also, he told me not to refer to him as a “shadow person,” so I never did. He was a dark outline of a man- no distinguishable features, no glowing eyes, as I’ve heard others say, and no long, scary fingers, either; he was just a dark figure. He also appeared in daylight, often. In full view, no corner of my eye thing.

I was not in contact with my biological father’s extended family when I was a kid due to my parents’ divorce and living kind of far away. It was long before email or social media existed, too.
I reconnected with them when I was a young adult, around the age of 21.
Unfortunately, my grandfather, great aunt and her husband were all very elderly and on the decline with their health. My grandfather was in a horrid care facility and one by one, they passed away at nearly 90 years of age. My great aunt’s husband passed first and I went to his (fortunately closed casket) funeral. It was the first funeral I had ever attended, as well.
