Take your meds, sir.

I would advise you to seek professional help.

Listen to Justin and aaa...

If there's a bad spirit around me every hair on my body stands on end. There's also a "whoosh" feeling that starts in the pit of my stomach and moves straight up my body. It feels like the "going down" feeling on a roller coaster. This started happening more frequently and it got more intense to the point where it took my breath away.
What you're describing sounds exactly like a panic attack, or possibly the beginnings of a faint. Seek psychiatric help, and get your heart and blood pressure checked out while you're at it.

It really doesn't help that you're apparently superstitious and highly suggestible in the first place. What you're dealing with is a mental issue, not a spiritual one, but you may very well be making it worse by ascribing it to demons and their ilk.

name goes here
I sometimes feel bad that we make fun of the crazies.

Stop watching "The Exorcist" !
Reality doesn't work that way.
6/9/2008 3:27:40 PM
You know, I've played with ouija boards, listened to all kinds of music, watched every horror/supernatural movie that came out, I have a ton of books on witchcraft, paganism, the occult, mythology, candles...HOW COME NONE OF THIS COOL SHIT EVER HAPPENED TO ME???

"And Mexican food must be Of The Devil, because I'd get that 'whoosh' feeling every time I had a burrito just before bedtime. That's why I spent so much time going to the bathroom at night. And my wife could sense the evil, too – she complained about smelling the spirit-cloud that followed me down the hall."

Allegory for Jesus
So, Michael, you think that auditory hallucinations, unexplained shadows, and a falling lamp were caused by TEH DEVIL, who was only allowed to do so because you didn't have THE POWERR OF JEEZUS on your side? Quite the leap.

Take your meds.

I actually know what the presence of evil "feels" like. If there's a bad spirit around me every hair on my body stands on end. There's also a "whoosh" feeling that starts in the pit of my stomach and moves straight up my body. It feels like the "going down" feeling on a roller coaster. This started happening more frequently and it got more intense to the point where it took my breath away. This was the turning point in my situation. Up to this point it had been going on for about a year and a half.
I know what a panic attack feels like... and you've just fucking described one perfectly.
6/9/2008 4:01:38 PM
Doctors are your friends, Michael. Talk to them, they would like to help you.
6/9/2008 4:05:01 PM
Are you sure this "presence of evil" simply isn't diarrhea?
6/9/2008 4:06:20 PM
Yeah, yeah, yeah. No more pepperoni pizza dinners for Mikey.
6/9/2008 4:06:36 PM
Why doesn't this stuff ever happen to me?
6/9/2008 4:25:14 PM
My bed not only shook, it rocked and rolled and moved all over my room. And, I can say it was all thanks to the spirits.
The kind of spirits I drank too much of, but spirits nonetheless.

Sometimes FSTDT is like the old times when people would pay a penny to laugh at the lunatics in bedlam.
6/9/2008 4:26:48 PM
I'm reminded of an old shaggy-dog story about a guy who consistently has bad stuff happen to him. In the end, he dies a horrible death, so he goes up to God and says "why did all that bad stuff happen to me?" God replies "because your face just pisses me off." I don't suppose that idea will ever occur to self-righteous, holier-than-thou fundies like Michael, though ...
6/9/2008 4:28:09 PM
Why do these things only happen to fundies?
6/9/2008 5:17:52 PM
Who're you gonna call?
Or you just might want to visit your local psychiatrist for help.
6/9/2008 5:22:22 PM
"I would lie in bed and feel the entire bed shake as if it were pushed."
Yeah, we had an earthquake a while ago that came through Illinois.
Freaked me out a little because we almost never get earthquakes in Illinois.
The rest of this is lame.
6/9/2008 5:32:14 PM
I wanted crazy supernatural shit to happen to me my whole life and I've been disappointed. Don't the demons want me? I feel so inadequate....

That sounds almost exactly like a quote from the Sixth Sense.

It's all right to be afraid of the dark even after you're all grown up (weenie, but all right). Install nightlights - problem solved.
