Suzanne F's ADCs

Experience description:  

Was playing a version of Scrabble on the computer with 7 tiles at the bottom.  Was stuck trying to come up with a word and kept staring at the letter "P".  Finally figured if I got up and got a cup of coffee, it would distract me and a word would pop into my head.  In the 15 - 20 seconds it took to look away from the screen and pour a cup, the letter "P" completely disappeared from the screen.  There were only 6 tiles at the bottom. 

I also have another anomaly with the computer.  When I'm on Facebook sending a private message, there's a tab at the top that has my name.  I've actually witnessed at least 5 x in the last 4 weeks where my husband's name will simply appear in a tab right next to mine.  I started taking pictures of the screen.

Could you sense the emotions or mood of the deceased?           Uncertain

Almost every ADC I've had since my husband died (I've filled three pages) have been primarily humorous pranks or something meaningful.  Nothing really scary.

How do you currently view the reality of your experience?           Experience was definitely real

            Please explain why you view the reality of your experience as real or not real:           Because it was right in front of me.  And I posted previously about how my broccoli and Brussels sprouts get 'spiked' with hot chili flakes?  It went on continuously for months, then stopped for months, and has just resurfaced in the last week.  Along with the scent of sautéing onions and garlic at 2am (this time it woke me up and I went down to the kitchen - nothing - when I went back to my bedroom, it was as if someone was standing over a hot stove.  The scent was like an Italian restaurant.  Lasted about 5 - 7 minutes.

            Was the experience dream like in any way?   No 

Describe in detail your feelings/emotions during the experience:           Laughed and said "How are you DOING this stuff??"

Was there any emotional healing in any way following the experience?           Yes   Gave me that wonderful feeling that he was 'hanging' around again after a conspicuous absence of months.

What was the best and worst part of your experience?      Knowing he's still around.  There was no 'worst' part.

Has your life changed specifically as a result of your experience?         Yes                 Describe:            Much more stable - very hard to cry and grieve when he's playing pranks on an almost daily basis. 

Did you have any changes of attitudes or beliefs following the experience?
   Yes     just a reinforcement that his ability to "do" things is still intact...

What emotions did you feel during the experience?            Tickled.

Well, only in the sense that i was able to smell something cooking that wasn't and that something disappeared off my computer screen without my touching it.
