Scary videos

I’m easy to scare. To deal with my overwhelming anxiety and depression I’ve been watching scary clips on YouTube. Anything that I can find from ghosts caught on tape, strange disappearances, weird coincidences, creepy pasta… Anything. It helps. I get scared. It’s become addictive to feel scared of the paranormal instead of just having this agonizing anxiety. I actually welcome a ghost. Anything to shake up my life, anything for a moment not to think about my constant pain.

The thing is, I don’t really know if I believe in any of it. I still get creeped out. But being creeped out feels so much better than my anxiety.

I understand why people cut – to relieve the emotional pain by feeling physical pain. I think this is my way to cut… Just scare the hell out of myself.

anyone got a scary real life story?

Lots of poeple enjoy being scared as entertainment – scary movies, haunted houses, thrill rides – so this can be a good way to deal with anxiety. I love scary stories, spooky folklore, etc. even though I don’t frighten easily.

I do have a story, although I would prefer to only post an abbreviated version of it. I was visiting my boyfriend several years ago and got up in the middle of the night while he was still sleeping. This thing, entity, whatever, attacked me. It made physical contact with me. The commotion awakened my boyfriend and his presence must have scared it because it let go of me. More happened, with the whole incident lasting at least 10 mins, but I will stop here.

Before that incident, I enjoyed spooky stories but had no solid opinion on whether such things truly existed. I was open-minded and not interested in proving or debunking. I still have no clue what that thing was.

Btw, if you enjoy certain types of stories I can make recommendations.

That sounds really creepy. Wow!!

I tend to watch a lot of mysterious disappearance stories. It scares me yet fascinates me.

Self inducing fear can be a fun coping mechanism. The adrenalin released when the body is in a fight or flight moment can be addicting. The irony is that the fight or flight response is meant to keep us alive.

I can tell a few ghost stories but they are just part of my creative imagination. I think “scary real life stories” are subjective, what scares one person might not scare another. I actually find it difficult now to become scared by stories, places, the dark and it’s something I miss. People can still scare me, they are often unpredictable.

“I actually find it difficult now to become scared by stories, places, the dark and it’s something I miss.”

Agree completely.
