  1. Upon visiting Point Lookout I was unaware of the history/historical value of the location. All I knew was I didn’t feel good. Growing up in Colorado we don’t eat much seafood but my boyfriend was going to show me the way he grew up. After oysters, crab, cod and so much eating in that vacation style I just figured I had overdone it. The deeper we drove into the park the worse I felt. I had to get out of the car. When we stopped and read the plaques I was then made aware not only was it a mass-grave site, but a prison and a hospital I began to understand. When we got home my boyfriend had terrible nightmares and I oddly, didn’t have any dreams. We shrugged it off. Three days later we landed back home in Colorado. While we were sleeping that night, a noise I couldn’t place woke me up. Maybe a few seconds later the television and the surround sound, which have to be turned on separately from two different locations, came BLARING on at the same time. My boyfriend got up and turned them off and we both went back to sleep. Once again I did not dream and he had nightmares. In the early morning hours I was woken by the sound of crying and talking and screaming. I knew they were echoes. My bellyache flared up again and my face felt like it had been smashed in and I kept hearing a man ask for help. I tried to communicate with him but he couldn’t or didn’t want to hear me. He had given me his pain but couldn’t leave his death-state. After trying and trying to talk I couldn’t take the pain anymore and I just yelled that he couldn’t be helped that he had died a long time ago. I yelled for him to move on. Like a clap of thunder the pain intensified and just as suddenly was gone. The house lights flicked and the oppressive feeling lifted.
