    I keep having a dream that I’m in an apartment and a ghost is in there with me. I try to escape-but it takes me a minute to get out of the apartment. Once I get-its always a different apartment complex. When I get out Im always screaming for my neighbors to help me and as soon as they do-I wake up. Sometimes the neighbors even know that there is a ghost and when they come over I wake up. Every time I have this dream it is a different apartment complex and the ghost is always doing something different. I can never see the ghost. The ghost is usually slamming cabinets or moving furniture or something. I stay in an apartment but its never my apartment in the dream. I just started having this dream a few months ago and ive had the dream about 4 or 5 times.
