Lynne, I am very comfortable with these entities. They don't bother me; sometimes they are helpful. I always mark a big "x" on the calendar at the end of the day with a big sharpie marker. One night I did not bother with it; after I turned off the bedroom light, I heard a "thunk" on the floor. When I turned on the light, guess what was on the floor? You guessed it...the Sharpie marker. Something in the room was with me. This morning I heard a woman cry. The last person that I heard any cries was my mom after she died.
