Fear of Ghosts and the Dark, Can Lead to Insomnia

24 Jan 2020

One in four Americans Develop Insomnia each year

Years ago, when I was nervously preparing to leave for basic training, my father advised me to sleep every chance I got. I was a young man, and sleep was usually something I did on Monday evening after my brain and body finally forced me to crash. None-the-less, I took his advice, and now believe, the extra rest I received was the primary reason I was able to stay focused, calm, and collected during all of the stress my drill instructors placed on me. Recent findings suggest that sleep plays a housekeeping role that removes toxins in your brain that build up while awake. [i] Now around the age my father was when he passed down his wisdom, I know more than ever, the importance sleep plays to be able to function properly during the day, to stay healthy, and safe.

His infamy as the poster boy of American serial killers has led to the production of several movies documenting the twisted life of the man who would, later on, be described by his own defense attorney as ‘the very definition of heartless evil’ in her own book, Defending the Devil.

But Ted did not look any bit of evil.

He was described by some of his victims as a handsome, charming, and charismatic young man. He was the kind of person that can win your trust in a matter of minutes. But under this cover of the average person lies the concealed identities of a burglar, a kidnapper, a rapist, a necrophile, and a serial killer who is probably “the most cold-hearted son of a bitch you’ll ever meet”.

Ohio Serial Killer Massacres

Ohio is the apotheosis of Americanism. The middle west begins with Indiana, the east with Pennsylvania, the south with Kentucky, and, surrounded by these sits Ohio, one of the richest spots on earth. Its contribution to music, art, literature and the theatre is far greater than any two states in the nation Louis Bromfield, Pulitzer Prize winner

The thought of entering the premises of an abandoned house during childhood would have given goosebumps to everyone. Haunted or not, one would spot a nearly-invisible silhouette or hear dogs howling in the dead of the night, near the house. Tales of the supernatural or a gruesome murder would slowly embrace the house, making it more and more enigmatic.

Haunted houses or murder houses have always held a special place in fiction. From literary stories like Edgar Allen Poe’s ‘The Fall of the House of Usher’ to movies such as James Wan’s ‘Insidious’ and ‘The Conjuring’ series, the house holds an important place in all of them.
