Abandoned, haunted places in or around LA?
Posted: 10/13 1:02 PM
Anyone know any good abandoned, creepy places in or around LA that may be haunted?
I'm talking about forgotten hospitals, convalescent homes, psychiatric wards, prisons, cemeteries, etc...
I don't mean a haunted house where you pay a couple bucks to go in and people with funny costumes on go boo in your face. Nope, I mean real deserted, neglected places that give you the creeps and willies--especially at night.

|Im just going to relay this story about Linda Vista Hospital.A security guard who has worked there for years (may still work there) told me when I asked if anything strange had ever happened to him there told me "no" but after some prodding he admited that on two different occasions over a period of years while making his rounds at night inside the hospital that he felt a hand grab his hand as if it where a child reaching up to grab your hand.Both times he said he just kept doing his rounds as if he didnt feel anything and nothing else occured.|
|Ghosts? I think it's more important we find the tooth fairy or the easter bunny first. Where are your priorities?|

|You have to open up your conscious to ghosts, its like a medium talking to the dead. If you're skeptical or doubt that stuff, you're likely to never perceive anything. Believe me its nothing you want to get into if you want peace of mind. I've heard of people being haunted wherever they went afterwards. I did ghost haunting and didn't believe at first, but I started believing experiences other people had and seeked it out. I heard babies crying/whimpering, hissing/growling noises. I had to say enoughs enough and never wanted to have anything else to do with it again. Took me 3 months before all fears left me. I recommend you don't open up to it, not even for fun. The stuff you hear or see is from another dimension, a spiritual realm that occasionally your 5 senses can detect.|
I wonder why.
