Phantom Noises

I thought I had posted about this already...but I can't find it.  Alas, it's today's post! :)

I've been hearing phantom noises lately.  At first, I would hear my cell phone ring as if it were coming from another know, distant, faint, but noticeable.  Except, my phone would be sitting at my elbow and obviously not ringing.  I shrugged it off as being a neighbor's phone...but weird (because that would be a REALLY loud ring for me to be able to hear it and because almost no one uses the same ring I do.)

Then a couple of weeks ago, I sat straight up in bed about 1:30 in the morning having heard the door bell.  I hesitantly checked the door.  No one was there.  No one was outside.  No one was anywhere near my house...nor did I hear giggling from some prank child around the corner.

I heard the doorbell again last night about 3:45am.  I did NOT go to the door this time.  I think I'm imagining things...but how the heck does it wake me up from (what had been) a SOUND SLEEP?

I'm still hearing the phantom phone rings, too.  It happens 3 or 4 times a week.  And the doorbell thing has now happened 3 times in the last couple of weeks.

Ugh...I need therapy!

  1. So I don't know about the doorbell ringing, but about 2/3 of people do suffer from hearing phantom cell phone rings or phantomly feeling their cell phone vibrate. It's been coined "ringxiety".
