I had an epiphany last night as I was going to bed. I had my stuffed animal (yes, I’m 25 but I need something to hold while I go to sleep) close to my face and was thinking about my old apartment in Brooklyn. I lived there for a year from 2015-2016 with 2 roommates in a 3 bedroom. Every week or 2, and oddly only when my boyfriend would be sleeping next to me, I would wake up suddenly, choking and gasping for air for about 30-45 seconds. I thought I had developed some sort of sleep apnea, or perhaps I was sleeping with with my stuffed animal too close to my face. One of the rooms in the apartment always had a strange vibe to it, like a darkness, but we never thought much of it and the roommate that lived in that room was almost never home. One day my boyfriend and I came home and found a few cops in the hallway taking a statement from our neighbors. As we approached the door to my apt, one of the cops says to me, oh, so you live in the famous apartment? I was confused and asked what he was talking about. He told me a few years prior, a woman was strangled to death in the apartment by her boyfriend who had just gotten out of jail (for trying to set her on fire, also in that apartment). I pointed in the direction of the “dark” bedroom and asked, in that room? He looked at me perplexed and said yes in the large room on the side. I told him you could feel it, and proceeded to go in. Last night as I looked back on this moment, I was thinking that ever since my boyfriend and I moved from that apartment, I’ve never had the “sleep apnea” I experienced while living in Brooklyn. I also thought of how I never had sleep apnea before living there either. I may be crazy, but I’m thinking the ghost of the woman who was strangled to death in my apartment was choking me/communicating with me. Not sure if she was jealous of my happy relationship, since it only ever happened when my boyfriend stayed the night, or if she was trying to make her presence known. I can’t believe it’s taken me this long to realize it. Has anyone else experienced something similar? Am I crazy for thinking the spirit is what caused me to wake up gasping for air? She was DEFINITELY in the apartment. We could feel it from the day we went to view the apartment, but desperately needed a place to live.
