I don't think you're a nut job unless I am too.
I have been "frozen" in bed before when it was just me and the dobie who alarmed me by staring at something behind my back when I was laying there. I could see him because of the glow of the digital clock. What is strange, he usually gets up to go see what something is. He jerked his head up and was staring directly over me (behind me) which was in the direction of our master bathroom/dressing room suite. It doesn't open up from the outside. The look he had was perked up ears and head raised tall. Had to be there, but I did not want to look behind me.
Another time we left the kids home with a friend of theirs and we went to eat a quick bite with the friend's parents. Got a call saying someone else was in the house. They locked themselves in our bedroom with one of my guns and stayed on the phone with me on the way home. We got there, searched the house and found nothing. The friend visiting swore up and down when they were in our living room, he saw a man standing in the breakfast nook. Not sure about that one.
I'm kinda a believer in ghosts, but a little on the fence. I have heard one more story that was really weird.
My wife is a home health nurse and so is her friend. Strangely enough, it's the mother of the kid that said he saw someone. She was visiting an old widow in an old wood frame house about 6 miles out of town. I've seen the house. Anyways, she said while she is asking the patient question in the living room, the door that goes to the kitchen slams shut. She asked the patient if someone is home and the patient non-chalantly said "no that's just the ghost that lives here. She said she went and opened the door back up and paid attention to see if windows were open somewhere causing it. she saw none. She said it happened again just mere feet away from her. She was telling us about it and her eyes got big and she said I decided then...just leave the door shut. LOL!
I dunno really, but keep us posted. Hopefully if it is...it is friendly. Ha! I have had some sudden wakes from sleep that I think I dreamed disturbances though. But if you were awake on some of it...not telling!
