My Grandma 2013-01-18 18:38:08 Reply

Hey guys, I was wondering what you think about this. My Grandma lives right behind me in her own house. She's 86 years old. We've offered many times to let her stay at our house, but she's very independent, and refused. Anyway, she's been telling me that she hears somebody knocking at her door at 2:30 - 4:00 AM. She also has told me she sees flashlights shine in her window, and her phone rings once or twice at night. She's even told me that she's heard voices outside of her house. I visited her today, and she said she heard the knocking last night. I looked all around her house, and there's no footprints in the snow, besides mine of course. I have absolutely no idea why somebody would do this. We live down a dirt road, and I can hear if any cars come down. I was awake most of the night, no cars came down my road. She told me this has been going on for about a year. My parents are pretty much ignoring it, saying It's her imagination. I'm extremely worried about it, because my neighbor had his house robbed last year, and they never caught them. I told her to call my house when this happens, but she keeps saying "No, I don't want to bother you". If I lived alone and heard these things, I would shit bricks. My Grandma isn't afraid of anything.

Do you guys think It's her imagination? Is there anything I could possibly do about this?

I don't think this is the case, she's completely fine when It comes to anything else. She's 100% mentally stable.

Can you see her house from outside your window? Maybe you could put a camera by the window and see if anyone's creeping around there during the night.

However, it's a bit strange that this has been going on for a year - if they were robbers, wouldn't they have done something by now? Maybe your grandma has recurring night terrors?

hey I have no idea the answer to what's really going on but there is a good chance she's imagining it or hallucinating that isn't uncommon with elderly people to hear and see crazy stuff, I know my neighbor who is unrelated, but old has seen things fly by her house and shine light beams down and seen weird looking people walk through her yard and we've always just assumed she was a little cookoo

Yeah, I can see her house from my kitchen window. Sadly, the only working camera I have at the moment is on my Ipod :/. Since I don't sleep much, I might take a peak out there every now and then.

Also, I think the night terrors could be whats going on. Sometimes when I wake up in the middle of the night, I can still somewhat hear things from my dreams before I'm fully awake. Thanks for the reply man.

Give her a gun, INSIST that she calls you if anyone is out there, and if you're not satisfied by any of that, offer to stand night watch. Or at least install some sort of recorded surveillance to refer to when she claims they happen.

It may very well be her imagination. If the brain is positive things are real they can seem real. Like pain can occur when there is nothing but your mind to create it. I know of others who have held delusional fantasies and sadly it is very hard to tell how much of them are based on fact and how much are based on the mind. But to them, they are both fact.

Don't begin telling her she is saying incorrect things etc. unless you are incredibly good at breaking such news. If their mind is telling the person it is real then it can cause some major drawbacks from saying such things.

That's not a bad idea, I think I might do that.

My grandmother bless her soul was a very stubborn lady herself, I'd probably have to give her a logical reason for her to grasp so she could direct her stubborn nature towards catching the bastards who annoy her.
