The Hairy Hands



I am very reluctant to believe in ghosts or spirits, but so many unexplained things happen that it's hard not to. I am 29 years old and have been through so many unexplained episodes.

My family is very Catholic, therefore they expect every child to be baptised. My son is 7 years old and I haven't baptised him. I don't know if this has contributed to anything. Ever since he was crawling, he could see "things".

One day I was in the kitchen doing dishes when I heard this terrifying scream and crying. I ran as fast as I could to find my son hiding way back in closet, screaming to death with his hands on his face. I picked him up and he kept pointing to something that I didn't see.

As he got older, around 2 years old, another episode occurred. In the middle of the night we were awakened to another terrifying scream. My husband and I ran as fast as we could, both thinking the worst. As he had my son in his hands, I felt chills through my whole body. My son had his legs and arms wrapped around by hunsband, just screaming, terrified, and yelling that the hairy hand wanted to get him, and pointing to the bed.

He would not lie down in bed or even turn around. He had his head tucked into my husband's chest. Each time we tried for him to turn around, he would grab his dad as hard as he could, just shaking in fear that it scared the crap out of me. We had to stay up with lights on, and my husband had to hold him, sitting up, all night.

We have gone through these episodes about 5 times. He claims he sees things like spotted toads, hairy hands, and even a pretty blonde women once, that try to get him.
