I used to work in a nursing home, and I sometimes felt “creepy” in certain rooms, as many people had died in them over the years. I asked the R.N. on my shift if he ever felt the same, half-expecting him to laugh at me, being the pretty normal and down to earth guy that he is. However, I was pretty interested to find out that he did, and had some experiences to relay.
For example, not where we worked, but at a hospital where he had worked earlier in his career, there was one about the “possessed lady.”
Here goes: One night he was working at some hospital along with some other nurses, and this old woman came wildly screaming out of her room. After the staff tried to calm her, she basically cursed them, spat, screamed, etc. and had to be carried physically back to her room. Here is the weird thing, she weighed like 90 lbs., and not just one person could handle her. Three of the staff (men) weighing over 200 lbs. each had to carry her back to her room. My nurse friend said that when this woman jerked her body, all four of them would sway and stumble several feet! When they took her back to her room, all the while spewing out stuff in other languages, she had to be tied down in her bed. (These were the “old days.”) After my nurse friend left the room with the others to ponder what in the world just happened, he said that he heard a snap, and the woman had broken off her restraints. She had this amazing strength, and began screaming in this deep man’s voice. He said that he was totally freaked out, at this point, and thought that he had seen her levitate.
After giving this lady some kind of shot, she went to sleep. He then asked the others who were working that night if they thaught that she was possessed. They just laughed, and after that, used to tease him about her being his girlfriend.
