Based in Brooklyn, NY, I write about all things creepy and strange. My book based on the real haunting of Doris Bither (The Entity 1982 movie) will be released soon. Got a question? Drop me a line.

How different would it be if you would have taken that out-of-state job offer that one time? What about those few seconds that delayed you that morning of that horrible accident? An accident you narrowly avoided being part of.

In our world there are infinite possibilities in our every day decision making, however we get to only live out in one set of possibilities. True or false. Yes or no. Take the job, or don’t. But if we dropped down into the minute world of Quantum mechanics, then the possibilities exponentially increase.

Quantum superposition is the principle in quantum mechanics that states that any two or more quantum states can be added together, resulting in another valid quantum state. In other words, an atom can be excited or not at the same time. Or it could be in two position, also at the same time.


On July 16th, 2008 a woman by the name of Lerina Garcia Gordo posted a comment in an online forum asking for help. The 41 year-old Spanish woman claimed to have woken up in a parallel universe. A world not-unlike the one she had left before going to sleep. However small inconsistencies in various aspects of her life began to convince her that she was in fact, living in an alternate reality.

This is the story of Lerina Garcia Gordo, the woman who claims to be from a parallel universe.


BED-SHEETSOn the morning of July 16th, Lerina awoke to find that her bedsheets were of a different color. She was confused and disturbed at the fact that they were of a  completely different set. It wasn’t just the colors that were different. Not being able to come up with a rational explanation, Lerina decided to get ready and head to her office job. A job that she had been employed for the past 20 or so years.

Her car was in the same spot she had left it the night prior. She got in and drove off, commuting down the same path she had grown accustomed to since moving into her apartment seven years ago. Besides the bed sheets, everything else seemed normal for Lerina. That is until she arrived at her office. Inside the office building there were a few strange people she had not met before but that didn’t raise any flags. Lerina walked towards her own office only to discover that there was a different name tag on her office door. It wasn’t her name.

She then thought that maybe she had gotten off on the wrong floor of the building however a quick look revealed that she was on the right one. She had gone to the right office, it was just that her name had been replaced.

Lerina was confused. Had she gotten fired and no one told her? After 20 years of faithful work, this is how they let her know?

She took out her laptop and connected to the company’s wireless network. There she found that she was still on the company’s roster however it showed that she was under a different manager, in a totally different department. Her head was in a tailspin.

She immediately checked her credit cards, driver’s license, and work ID. They all reflected the right information as far as she knew. Same name, same picture, same numbers, and same home address. Not knowing what to think, she called her job and told her she was taking a sick day. The inconsistencies that morning made her think that something was wrong medically with her.

She took the rest of the day off and headed straight to the doctor’s office. There they ran test on her, checking for signs of any illicit drugs in her system. The tests came back negative. She had no alcohol or drugs in her system.

Lerina went back home and began going through her personal files. Bank statements, personal checks, bills….she double checked them all. They all showed the right information. So a thought popped into her head.  ‘What if this is amnesia? What if something happened to me and I can’t remember parts of my life?’

Immediately she logged online and began scouring the internet. She saw that the news and top stories were the same as the previous night, so there were no missing days. As far as Lerina knew, she had woken up living a slightly different life.

It had been six months since Lerina had left her boyfriend of seven  years. She had recently started dating a man (Agustin) that lived down the street from her. They had been dating for only four months, however she knew him quite well. When she called her new boyfriend’s number, someone else picked up. They told Lerina that there was no one with the name Agustin, or that matched her description  living in that house.

The news shocked her as she had spent the last four months getting to know the guy. She had even met his son and had started to Spain-Sevilladevelop a relationship with him as well. But now, there were no signs of her boyfriend and his son at all. As the day passed, she found more and more inconsistencies. She had no choice but to go into work the next day and pretend that she belonged.

Still, Lerina called and called but no one had heard of Agustin or his son. It was as if they never existed. That’s when she learned that she had never left her ex boyfriend. That they had been together since seven years ago and there was no sign of them having ever separated.

Lerina didn’t know what to think. What had happened to the life she knew? What had happened to her career? Had she hallucinated it all?

The one thing she thought was that maybe she had a nervous breakdown at one point. Severe enough to implant false memories into her head, or at least that’s what she thought when she visited a psychiatric clinic. However tests concluded that she was of healthy body and healthy mind. The doctors told her that maybe she was under a lot of stress and could have hallucinated it all. An explanation she had thought about but knew wasn’t true.  She set out to look for her boyfriend Agustin, but came back empty handed. A hired investigator concluded that there were no signs of Agustin or his son in that city.

Her own family thought that Lerina was going insane when she asked about her younger sister’s shoulder operation. They looked at her with confusion as Lerina insisted that her sister had recently had surgery on her shoulder. A claim that no one in her family could back up. As far as her family knew, there had been no surgeries done to any member of the family.

Days, weeks, and months passed as Lerina began to discover small but unnerving differences in her life. Clothing in her drawers and closets that she didn’t remember buying, blog posts she had made weeks, even days before, were gone. Emails and chats were no longer archived in her computer. However browsing through news sites and blogs, the world appeared to be the same. Just like she had remembered before going to bed that July night.

As the months passed and no answers could be found, Lerina became convinced that she had simply just gone to bed one night and awoke in a parallel universe. A world in which her life had been altered by small decisions of her past.

Having sought medical attention Lerina knew that no one would believe her ordeal. So she did what anyone in her position would do: Make a post in an online forum about her ordeal and ask for help.

Translated from Spanish:

Please, if anyone has gone through something similar, please contact me. I want to know what happened to me, as no pathology can tell me what has happened to me. I’ve spent the last five months reading theories that I find online and I’m convinced that I have jumped into an alternate reality. Something, some action I must have taken has changed my reality.

If I did jump into a parallel universe, then why am I living in the same year? I’m the same person, just minor differences in life.

To explain myself better, this is like having lost the last 5 months of my life. It’s like they were all just a dream, however everyone else has the memories of those 5 months except for me. And I’ve done things during that time that I have no memory of doing so.

Please, abstain from making jokes or telling me that you have “the truth”. This is very serious to me.

What happened to Lerina Garcia Gordo? Did she suffer from a medical condition that made her believe she lived in an alternate world? Did she actually wake up in a different universe?

    I think your brain and all the thoughts got exchangen by you from the parallel universe. And might your twin from the parallel universe had also got problems like you!!

    I’ve seen buildings change shape three times in two seconds I don’t know where I am .

  • Brian Giffen

    I keep a map of buildings and signs that change , for me physical objects change , my personal life is the same. I’m thinking of teaming with someone to photo these buildings most of the phenomena happens in Spokane wa

    just like the mandela effect, someone time traveled changed something and it changed her reality.just like all of us who dont think the mandela effect is nonsense there are all kinds of small changes to our reality that a lot of us are aware of

    for instance there was never anything called the black tom terroist attack in our history before,stan lee has died twice,nichol nichols,”lt uhuru “died and now she is alive to this day,the crew of the space shuttle challenger is somehow alive now despite bogus stories out to try to debunk this fact ….many other small changes

  • Rebeka Weingaertner

    Can you actually un-prove it? If not, you are just being stubborn to things you can’t compreehend. Also, please note the multiverse theories started a very long time ago, by scientists far more eloquent then you and your “theories” to prove your point.

    I regularly experience a dream state of being in a parallel universe. Essentially it appears to be dreams but the main difference is I visit places I know…but they are not places I know. There are people I know but our relationships are different. In the dreams I know it is the town I grew up in but the layout is different…even being in the city I am now it is the same but different. Some may say you are just dreaming but these are repeated dreams that are different situations but the contents refer to the same house or same location in detail. In some of these dreams I can see for example the view out the window and at the same time experience the panic of the other person seeing something they do not recognise – even experienced the people around me knowing I am not the person they think I am. It is hard to explain but it is like being in someone elses body but not being them. It isn’t remote viewing because the people around me are people I know well….but they are different. My husband in this life for example exists but has nothing to do with me. Family members are physically recognizable but totally different personailities. I should also mention for my entire life (right back to first memories as a toddler) when I have questions around these experiences my right hand tingles with a numbing sensation….can’t quite explain it. I have discussed these ‘dreams’ with friends and family through my life but no-one else seems to have experience this. Has anyone else gone through this or experienced anything similar?


    Could it be a Walk In? Or would a person even realize if that happened to them?


    YES🤗, I go through the very same thing as you. I know you wrote this post 3yrs ago & you may not ever see my post to you… but, I hope I’m wrong because I would really love to talk to you about this. Everything you said is exactly the same thing with my dreams too & always has been. You got me thinking that it could be that during our dreams(which you explained them perfectly to Tee & are just like mine) we are living in a Parallel Universe? That makes sense now that I read your post. But i’m curious if you have any other ideas and/or theories
    what else this could be, because it feels so real?

    I’m so in shock that you are describing your dreams just like I experience mine too. It has sorta blown my mind!🤤
    But I’m so excited & happy to have found you, I fear 3 years too late.😦🙁☹

    I can’t wait til you hopefully reply back. I want to tell you about my dreams, which are exactly like you explained yours are.
    I have questions & I wanna share some interesting things. I want to see what you think.👍🏼

    ☺Hope to hear a reply from you.🤞🏼

    You idiot, .if you dont understand the multiverse theory, shut up. There are many theories, and all of them say universes are absolutely distinct from ours. Only one say it could have similarities and maybe alien form doppelgangers , but that one was disproved.

  • Renan Oliveira

    Yes, it’s called ‘people change’ and time passes.
