Real Haunted Houses

Real Haunted House

Grandma Will Care For You

North Carolina, United States

In 1969, a woman lived with her daughter and her grandchildren. She was known to tell stories that could keep you on the edge of your seat, or shed tears for a sweet love story. She became sick with thyroid fever suffered until she finally stop breathing. Her family was devastated. Even the 4 year old little girl missed her grandmother.

A couple of months later, the little girl grew happier. Her mother wandered into the little girls room to find the little girl sitting on the bed, talking to the rocking chair that slowly rocked and she looked up smiling.

“Do you see her mama?” she questioned. The family left to move to Florida later because her mother feared what the house was doing to her daughter.

Thirty years later, the little girl became a mother, she came back to that old house and still felt the same comforting feeling. She decided to build a two story house next to it. In the great room of that old house, the wood around the fireplace feels warm to the touch, like it was burning wood recently. If you stand near the windows on the outside the blinds are bent slightly like someone is watching you. Then when you look away and suddenly look back, the blinds are straight. The grandmother’s spirit must still reside in that house to this day, watching over it.

Thyroid fever huh. If she would have had Univeral Healthcare she would have been able to go to the doctor and gotten some medicine for that thing. Come to think of it Univeral Healthcare makes so much sense that Obama/Clinton should use this story to make their case for UniHealth. Where was Grandpa Ghost? Is Thyroid fever contagious? I don’t want to go to this house and catch it. Then I would be a ghost and left to sit in a rocking chair and look out of the window for eternity ugggggg!

yea that’s a scary story. well i live in laurel hill north carolina and it reminded me of when my spanish teacher was telling the class about his haunted story…scary but true…he said that around the 1930’s his grandparents had a daughter named Elizabeth, she waa two and ended dying because of the whooping cough. well after Elizabeth’s death his grandmother just couldn’t bare living in the same house that Elizabeth died in so his grandfather had found another house for them to live in…well now its been years after Elizabeth’s death and my teachers grandparents have invited his grandfather’s father to live with him…(my teacher’s great grandfather)…well one day my teacher’s grandfather was sleeping and woke up in the middle of the night around 3a.m. and found Elizabeth sitting at the edge of the bed looking at him…his grandfather said, “Elizabeth, What are you doing?” Elizabeth answers back, “i’m here to get your daddy.” so my teachers grandfather stood up and got out of bed and Elizabeth took his hand like a two year old would and walked him to the room where his dad was sleeping….and sure enough his dad had passed….when he looked down at Elizabeth she was gone… spooky huh?…wait thats not it…this year is 2008…my teacher had grew up now of course and bought that house that his grandparents onced lived in…the house where Elizabeth died in…he bought it because it’s like a little family house…the house is also located in South Carolina somewhere…but anyways remember this year is 2008 and he told us that just two christmas’s ago when they were having their little family and friends get together at that house his neice came over along with her two in a half year old girl…the grown ups were just talking you know catching up on stuff and my teacher and his neice realizes her daughter talking and playing with someone when she’s really playing by herself….my teacher asks his neices daughter, “baby what are you doing?…and she says, “oh, i’m just playing with Elizabeth.” ….and yes this is based on a TRUE STORY…

Yes there is a Thyroid fever also known as Thyroid Storm I know that because I have been through it myself. My fever spiked at 105 i was very sick a few months later I had to have my Thyroid removed.

Christy says:

And yes you can die very quickly if the Thyroid Storm is not treated. And the diease is not spread from person to person, it’s a problem with the Tyroid only.

Anyone interested in the paranormal, I am co founder of a local group in Fayetteville, North Carolina. My partner and I are looking for some new members willing to go on investigations. We have already partially investigated the Vander Light haunting. We still have to go back to with our equipment, but we did catch pictures of several orbs and ectoplasm. Our contact info is on our web site.
Thanks and hope to hear from you soon!!
