Well, it's not that I don't want to tell, it's just that some of these things are SOOO weird, I don't think anyone will believe me....and no one wants to sound like a raving lunatic....so, I've learned to keep things to myself.
This smell thing is one of the milder things ..... there are others. A few years ago, I was physically attacked by...something....and I have the scars to prove it. That same night we, my family and I, were growled at by something in the woods....the growl came, not from the ground, but at ear level and was extremely close. Whatever it was, it was big. A bear, some have asked? Not really possible, as it was November here and the leaves had fallen....no sound was ever heard of rustling leaves. And believe me, we have freaked out many times in the fall, hearing leaves rustling, thinking something HUGE was approaching from all that noise, and it turned out to be a squirrel. That night, the night of the growl and the attack.....there was no rustling leaves, at any point.
But that night is another story.
As I said, i don't want to be made fun of, and I am not a fanciful person that imagines that this or that is paranormal. In fact, because of childhood issues, I've been much happier denying any belief in the paranormal because that would mean that all that stuff that happened to me as a child could be REAL and not just bad dreams or the result of watching too many scarey movies. THAT is how I've kept myself sane over the passing years. By NOT believing in the paranormal. Now, living here in Gettysburg, well......that seems a bit more difficult. THINGS keep happening to us......
For the record, once, years ago on another paranormal forum, I told some of my story of the physical attack by...something, most people probably thought I was crazy, but one man contacted me and told me that what we were experiencing was indeed paranormal, and that we were being harassed by things called "trackers". That they follow us, track us. I tried to ask him questions , like WHAT are Trackers, and WHY are they tracking us....he dodged the question. He just told me NOT to challenge them, to stay away from them. Needless to say, I am a stubborn woman. I refused to stay off the battlefield, despite the fact that I was attacked. He seemed to be the only one who believed me.
