Woman Installs Security Camera, Realizes Why She's Always Tired

Her body started to shake as she watched the security camera footage from the night before. How was this even possible? This had been going on for months, and she had no idea.

Melanie immediately called her husband and begged him to come home ASAP. 

Melanie Darnell

Melanie was a mother of three and an Instagram fitness influencer. Every day, she updated her 100,000 followers on her fitness journey and family life. 

But no one knew that Melanie was actually going through a difficult period in her life.

Strange Sounds

For over ten months, Melanie would hear creepy noises in her house at night. At first, she thought it was the wind or pipes that were waking her up.

The worst of all, she would wake up feeling tired and weak, as if she didn't sleep at all. Something wasn't right, and Melanie wanted to get to the bottom of it. 

She Couldn't Take It Anymore

The noises were getting louder and louder, and Melanie couldn't take it anymore. So she decided to stay awake all night to see what was really going on. 

And what she discovered sent shivers down her spine...

She Decided To Stay Awake

The next day, Melanie put her children to sleep and went to her room. She decided to stay awake all night to find out where the sound was coming from. 

But her plan had failed, and she passed out after 1 hour. Melanie was wondering if the strange noise was bothering her husband and children too. After all, they all lived in the same house. 

Her Husband Was Also Bothered By The Sounds

To her surprise, her husband had been wondering the same thing. Like her, he was bothered by the loud sounds and could barely sleep at night. 

He told her to “set up a night-vision camera and see what’s going on, or wait for him to come home." Her husband was away on a business trip, but Melanie couldn't wait any longer. So, the next day, she went to the store and purchased a night-vision camera. 

She Set Up A Camera

Melanie felt her anxiety creeping in as she set up the camera on her bedroom ceiling. She wasn't sure if she was ready to find out the truth. 

What if her house was haunted? What if someone had been watching her at night? She wasn't prepared for what she was about to see on the footage. 

Looking At The Footage

The next morning, Melanie made herself a strong cup of coffee and got the video camera ready. She was about to find out what was happening at night and why she was always so tired. 

 She watched herself entering the room and lying in bed. At first, everything seemed normal. 

Everything Seemed Normal At First

Melanie pressed the fast-forward button and watched herself sleep. She was relieved to know that she didn't have a sleepwalking problem and no ghosts had appeared in the room. 

Suddenly, she saw a strange figure entering her bedroom door. It was unlike anything she had ever seen before. 

Strange Shadows 

A small figure opened Melanie's bedroom door while she was sleeping and crawled up on her bed. 

Then, two more shadows entered the bedroom and peered over her. The footage showed her asleep as her bedroom filled with white shadows.

It Wasn't A Ghost

Melanie sighed in relief as she watched her three children sleep next to her in bed. After putting them to bed around 9 PM, they woke up and came into her room 5 hours later. 

But then, she saw someone else entering her bedroom. 

Her Dog Entered The Room

Melanie's dog entered the room a few minutes later and jumped on her bed, where her children were already asleep. The animal began licking and sniffing their faces.

Although Melanie seemed to be asleep and couldn't remember anything, her eyes were actually wide open the entire time.

She Was Awake

Melanie watched herself cuddling with her children and petting her dog. She wasn't asleep after all. 

She was so shocked by the footage that she shared it online. “Parenting doesn’t end when the sun goes down,” she wrote on her social media. 

She Wrote A Post

She continued, “During these moments, let’s think of all of the other parents that are up with their babies at the very same middle-of-the-night moment and take comfort in the thought of each of us cradling our babies in the dark of our homes, together in a shared experience.” 

Melanie's post almost instantly went viral, with hundreds of people liking and resharing her video. 

Being A Mother Of Three Isn't Easy

Melanie wants others to know that motherhood never stops, and it's not easy being a mother of three, especially when your husband is often away on business trips. 

She is relieved to know that her house isn't haunted and hopes that her video will make her followers smile.
