Paranormal or simply paranoid?/u/JLRik

Hi all! I’ve had a lot of worsening anxiety and hormonal problems recently, so I’m not sure if I’m overthinking or if my home could have something paranormal going on. I’m new to this community, so if I’m doing something wrong please let me know.

The home we live in was my boyfriend’s grandmother’s home. She was the only person to ever live here. It was built for her by her son (my boyfriend’s father), and is on said son’s property (an estate with multiple buildings, all only occupied by immediate family), so it was quite the significant space for her. She willed the home to my boyfriend, who I already lived with, so we moved here last fall.

The only interesting thing that happened prior to us moving is my boyfriend’s father mentioning that outdoor lights had started turning on and off on their own. They worked on some sort of electrical thing, and it solved the issue. There is also a lamp in the house that does the same. We don’t have an explanation for the lamp.

I had never noticed anything out of the ordinary until about a month ago. The house has always been sort of noisy in general (the water heater is ultra clanky, acorns fall on the skylights, birds hit windows, squirrels tap at the glass doors, lots of wildlife around, noises in the hall are amplified into the bedroom/closet due to layout…lots of easily explained noises that would catch you off guard if you didn’t know what they were.)

A month ago, we brought home a puppy. While this would typically feel extremely unrelated, the puppy’s birthday is one day away from the one year anniversary of his grandmother’s passing. She started her journey out of the living world on December 13th, 2021, which was the last day my boyfriend was with her. He stayed until about 11:55pm. She passed away minutes after he left, just after midnight on December 14th, 2021. Puppy was born late at night on December 13th, 2022 and came home on February 15th. For what it’s worth, which may be a lot, she did pass away in the home.

The morning before we brought the puppy home, very early (around 4am. I am generally up around that time. I used to get up at 5 or 6, but it’s been 3 or 4am since we moved here) I was sitting in our sunroom admiring the fact that the very full moon was visible through our skylights. It isn’t generally aligned that way, and it was fascinating to look at the moon from inside my house. I have some photos I took on my phone, if anyone is interested.

I saw what I felt was a shadow figure out of the corner of my eye, snapped my head to the left, and it was gone. There is a tall grandfather clock right next to where I saw the figure, so I wrote it off as sleepiness and darkness making me see things.

Now, we (mainly I) have started hearing noises we can’t explain. We frequently say “huh?” To each other because we heard talking, only to be met with a confused “I didn’t say anything.” We hear noises that sound like things hitting walls, loud pops, heavy objects falling, pipes bursting….but we never find the culprit. It always sounds like it’s damage being done to the home or inside of it. We both hear it, and typically so does the puppy.

My boyfriend has been traveling for work more than usual, and the occurrences seem more frequent and intentional when he is gone or asleep. He is currently sleeping, and I am writing this after hearing what sounded like a suitcase crashing down in the hall closet. There’s nothing there. It woke the puppy from a deep sleep.

Last week, I smelled fire in the living room, but only in the exact space she passed. This week, in the same spot, it smells very electrical and metallic sometimes. The lamp has started turning on and off again. A mop fell over in the bathroom while I was taking a shower. I hear dog toys squeak from the area I saw the figure in, but nothing squeaked them and the puppy doesn’t notice. This is usually when I’m in the bathroom and out of sight of that room (puppy follows me. It isn’t her.)

Yesterday, the puppy brought me a past hospital bracelet of the grandmother’s. I don’t know where it came from. I know there was one in a drawer of keepsakes, but there is no way pup had access to that and it’s still there.

I’m sure i will think of more occurrences after I post this, but does this sound paranormal to anyone? Am I making connections that don’t exist because I’m anxious?
