Sickness and the Paranormal
February 7, 2010
I was ill yesterday. Still in recovery from my 1/15 sinus surgery, I was running a fever and experiencing what is probably a sinus infection (I see the doctor soon). I’m out of the danger zone for sugery-related meningitis, but it was pretty rough. The severe sinus headache went all migraine and next thing I knew, I was praying to the porcelain god as though I’d been enjoying whiskey instead of Carnation Instant Breakfast just a few hours earlier.
I had trouble sleeping during the illness event, but when I did sleep, the dreams were vivid. Let’s look at what was affecting the dreams:
- Other goings-on in the room as my husband was awake and moving around quietly
I definitely had some dreams which may or may not have been paranormal, but it’s tough to say considering the other things were influencing me. I am in a location with confirmed activity, so the odds aren’t impossible. A lot of other people have been sick (and have passed away) in this home over the years. Sometimes I wonder if that’s a reason to sell the house–then I remember that these people were loving members of my husband’s family. Still, it’s weird to feel watched sometimes.
I was also reminded of a time when I was younger. I had a similar fever–also starting with that awful sinus headache and escalating into the migraine zone. I don’t know what was wrong with me, but I saw black ‘things’ swirling around above me. It was probably Benadryl-induced, but it was still scary as hell.
I’m not sure if there will ever be a way to verify whether dreams and visions are paranormal or not. I’ve had some experiences during sleep that are undeniably paranormal, and others that come and go mysteriously with the headaches and vomiting.
What do you think?
