my step mom died a pretty tragic death years ago. I keep having the same reoccurring dream that I’m home and for some reason she’s there. But she’s not really, like when you come home and you’re not sure if you’re alone or not. Her presence is what’s there. But as I’m sitting in the living room I hear moving upstairs (she died in her room and was found under her bed). I hear shuffling and I see movement coming down the stairs. I’m scared at first but I play it off. This dream feels so real that I’m trying to rationalize what it could be while I’m dreaming. Suddenly she’s there. Crawling down the stairs. I know she’s dead but part of me thinks she’s still alive here. Like it was never real and she never really passed away. She just sits there on the stairs. Motionless. Staring at nothing. I want to cry and ask her what happened, but it’s like if I speak, talk, or look at her she’ll see me and coming running at me. I’m paralyzed with fear.
