Today’s story of a doppelganger encounter comes to us from a member of our community who wishes to be referred to as Jones. She said this occurred at her home in Mount Nebo, West Virginia in the fall of 2020.
Some time in fall of 2020, I almost ran face first into myself from about 5 minutes earlier. I was fully awake and had just showered then got dressed for work. I was on my way back to the bathroom to fix my hair and brush my teeth. As I stepped into the hallway, literally ME – stepped out of the bathroom. I ran almost directly into myself. It obviously scared the crap out of me. I jumped back then screamed. I jumped back hard enough that I physically hit the wall
The copy of myself was wrapped in a towel like I had been just a few minutes before
The copy of me disappeared as quickly as it appeared and the whole interaction lasted about a second or two
I’ve always had weird experiences following me. I first went ghost hunting in late middle school and early high school. I also grew up hearing stories about paranormal happenings in my family’s past. So, interest in it has always kinda been around. I had a number of paranormal events happen throughout my life – starting in middle school and still happening occasionally. I would be very interested to find others that have had the same “nearly run into doppelganger ” experience. I did some digging around online around the time it happened, but never really found anything close.
Thanks Jones for sending us this story!. For those unfamiliar with the phenomenon, doppelgangers appear in the paranormal folklore quite often. They are a person’s double and are usually a bad omen and it is thought that if a person sees their own doppelganger, they will most likely die shortly after.
