Mother's Shadow Man

My mother married my father when she was 17, mostly to get out of a difficult family situation…My father was in the army and was stationed in Maryland, so mother took a train, by herself to Maryland to marry dad and set up housekeeping… They wound up renting a room in an older womans home for a while….

Not long after they got settled, mother began to be visited by …something….. she said that she would wake up and there would be a figure standing at the foot of her bed…she could see the outline, a shadow of a man. She could not move, she could not scream….He would stand there for several minutes…she would squeeze her eyes shut…open them again…most of the time he would be gone….sometimes not…she would then jump out of bed and search…nothing…and was terribly afraid.
I never really thought too much about this story over the years until I was researching hauntings much later in life…

I came upon a story about Shadow People…no one seems to agree on what they may be….but the stories are surprisingly similar…including the paralysis that goes along with it….some speculate that it is meerly a dream state…. Could be…..but…look through the internet and read about Shadow People…very interesting.
