I recently received the following reader submission:
Back before I got married, which was about seven or eight years ago, my dog and I lived by ourselves in a small one bedroom apartment on the second floor of an apartment complex. I stayed up late most nights as I was attending college at that time and had lot of homework to do every night.
I did almost everything on my desktop computer, that sat right beside the inside of my bedroom door. The apartment was extremely tiny and when I looked out the door, I was basically facing another door, the one that led into my linen closet. There was just barely enough walking space between there for me to move around and go to the bathroom.
Well this one evening it was between 2:30 and 3:00 a.m. and I was sitting in my usual position typing up an essay paper. For some reason my dog Jace was not in there with me that night and he ALWAYS stayed with me. I figured he was just tired due to the late hour and had went to sleep in the dark living room.
I suddenly began to feel very uneasy and got a cold chill. I had never felt this way before and for whatever reason I glanced up from my typing over to outside my bedroom door. The bedroom light fell from behind me and what I saw made me stop and stare in terror.
On the linen door closet was the figure of a very huge man, totally dark, as if it was his shadow. He was just standing there completely still. What was most unnerving of all was that I noticed he had no head. It was like it had been chopped off or something. His body was totally complete up to the top of his neck, yet I was completely sure he was staring right at me even without a head to be looking at me with.
I was so terrified I could not even call out for Jace, and the dog failed to come to me either. I stood up slowly and moved backward in my room as if I was trying to get away from it. But by this time, it was slowly beginning to fade from view off the door. I was able to find my voice and both fright and anger came out of me. I told it to get out and never come back. I kept saying it over and over and finally Jace came running to my side.
That was when I finally burst into sobbing hysterics and wrapped my arms around my dog and cuddled him for the rest of the night. I have no explanation for it and I have never had any other experience with a shadow person, for which I am grateful!
I do have lasting effects from it, however. Now I experience panic attacks and firmly believe I had my first one that very night when I broke down after the shadow person disappeared. I never had them before, but I firmly believe that thing brought them on me.
Thank you for letting me tell my story. KR
