Hello. I don't know how to go about this so please bare with me. I don't even know if I'm at the right place.
I think I'm being haunted.
Now, I've always been a sceptic, but I've always been open to my peers beliefs. I've always thought of the logical explanations of things, but this time I don't know how to explain it, so my friend suggested I turn to this.

Just for clarification here, I sleep with my windows and door shut. My bedside table is on my right side, therefore I can check the time and turn my lamp on without much movement.
Every night, at 2:30am, I get woken up. It's not a gradual waking up. It's a snap-wide-awake waking up. There is always an icy cold band around my left wrist. Like so cold it burns. When I turn my lamp on, using my right hand as I can't move my left wrist a lot when this happens, there looks to be an indent on the side of my bed next to my wrist, like someone had sat there. It's not left over from earlier in the night as I am an extremely fidgety sleeper. This is followed by the hair raising feeling that I am being intently watched. I'm always terrified. This lasts around 3 minutes, then it all disappears abruptly, like it never happened.
As a child, my mother's best friend was one of those individuals who could see and converse with ghosts. I was told I was like a lightbulb and that spirits were attracted to me like moths. But as I have a father who is an overpowering sceptic, I grew up thinking it was nonsense. Everything I saw as a child, like figures walking through walls and animals who used to disappear in a blink of an eye and the feeling of been watched in a room by myself or the sudden temperature change or things going missing within 5 minutes of me setting them down were brushed off as 'you were tired' or 'it's just stress'.

I'm faced with this feeling of worry when it's time for me to go to sleep. I keep thinking I'm over-reacting. The strongly sceptic side of me is trying to think of it logically, but the small part of me that grew up around my mother's best friend and a witch is telling me to be alert, and that this is something else.

Am I over-thinking this?

Hello and welcome to the boards.

I think it is a question you need to answer for yourself.  

It is easy to be influenced by your parents when  young but at some stage, you need to tap into what you believe to be true or not. Once you are there I feel you won't need to ask, are you being paranoid!

It is always positive to logically work through your experiences and if they don't fall into the realm of normal it is ok to look at these experiences differently.  

It sounds like you are under a lot of anxiety when you go to bed and this could be a normal reaction once awake to feel terrified.
I feel you need to write your feelings down each night before sleep and after being rudely awaken you might see patterns and get some answers.

Maybe you could tell us if you have tried anything to alleviate your anxiety whether it be spiritual, Wicca or even positive affirmations. Have you mentioned your symptoms to your medical practitioner, you might find you are resting on nerves in your arm. Compressed nerves can often give off burning and cold sensation. It might be something to rule out!
