Have you ever had a dream? Of course, you have. But have you ever had a dream that you thought was unreachable? I have. That was me in the end of 2017. I was lost, working a dead-end retail job with nowhere to go but up. That's when the dream of becoming a CNA came to life. I quickly signed up for an accelerated course and the rest is history (kinda). After completing my 2-week crash course and passing my state boards I was a fresh-faced CNA in Colorado ready to help people anyway I could...
"Here goes nothing" I thought as I received my somewhat dream job working the graveyard shift in a long-term care facility just outside of Denver. My shift was 5p-5a, and I honestly loved it. I especially loved the night time differential (ya know what I'm sayin' $)? I wasn't there long till the other CNA's started telling me their ghost stories. Like this one time I was walking with a co-worker down another unit. She looked at me and said "do you know why their door is closed? (the only door closed on the unit) I replied "nope" and she told me it was "because the children play to loud in the middle of the night". To which I sarcastically respond, "oooooookkayyyy".
A few nights later I was taking my break, alone, as I usually do being, I'm on night shit. Since I was in the break room alone, I started watching a YouTube video out loud. About 5 minutes in I realized I heard kids playing super loud in the background...My initial reaction was to pause the video, play it back and listen to the kids playing the background of the video. As you can expect THERE WERE NO KIDS PLAYING IN THE BACKGROUND OF THIS VIDEO. You will be shocked to hear that this did not scare me at all. I was more shocked that these kids and their spirits are real and that these people hearing them weren't losing it as much as you would think!
My next few shifts were as normal as they usually were until... I was putting two female patients to bed. I was working with one patient and her roommate out of nowhere starts yelling at us to be quiet. I politely went over there and told her that I needed to use my normal voice so she could hear me and that I would be done soon. As soon I was done telling her this, she looks at me, laughs and says that she was sorry, and she thought she heard kids playing loudly over where I was. That was my second verification that what I was told is 100% real.
I wasn't sure how I felt about ghosts or afterlife or any of that stuff. But what I will say is, after these experiences my feelings have changed. Now, I believe in ghosts, do you?
