The Asylum’s ghostly residents and the unforgettable experience/u/AppleMom1984

My husband works at the Oregon State Hospital, a facility infamous for its past treatment of mental illness, and where the classic film "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" was shot. Despite its dark past, the facility had become a place of healing for many individuals suffering from mental illness. However, as with many older buildings, a portion of the asylum was scheduled to be demolished.

As part of his cleaning duties, my husband ventured into the abandoned portion of the building, which had been devoid of any human activity for a considerable length of time. As he worked, he couldn't shake the feeling that he was being watched. During his lunch break, he decided to call me to check in. I answered the phone I could hear what sounded like people talking in the distance. However, the voices were muffled and indistinct. He sounded distracted and didn't seem to be listening to anything I was saying. Irritated, I snapped at him and asked if he was calling to talk to me or them.

My husband was confused and quickly replied that he was alone in the building. My heart sank as I realized that something wasn't right. There was a panic in his voice that I had never heard before in our 19 years of marriage.

After that experience, my husband was understandably shaken, but he continued to work at the asylum. He never had another experience like that again, but the memory of that day still creeps us out.
