Weird Fact About Me 9/11

You all will think this is very "weird", but I feel the need to share it anyways.

Ever since 9/11 happened I frequently catch the clock time as 9:11. I am talking this happens to me atleast once a week, if not more. It sort of freaks me out every time. I know this sounds crazy, but I think it may be some sort of sign and I am not sure what that sign is yet. I mean, why else would this be happening to me for the past 6 years?

Do any of you have reoccuring strange signs happen to you? Please tell me I am not alone, LOL.

EDIT- I have had a couple of new commenters on this post. Thanks for the encouragement and advice. I suppose it could be a small bit of PTSD. I was quite devastated at the time. We had just had my daughters first birthday party that Saturday before and all I could think was what kind of world was this going to be for her to grow up in? My precious grandmother lived in Connecticut so I was concerned for her, and my Step Mother in Law was teaching a class in New Orleans trying to get in touch with her daughter in law that worked in the World Trade Center in one of the basement shops, and trying to figure out a way to get home.

I have not thought that my story was any different than the other millions of people that this day has touched so I had not given it any additional thought really. We did not lose a family member that day, and we lived in California for goodness sake. My devastation was so much less than those that were personally affected.

Also, come to find out 2 weeks later, I was pregnant with my second child. I guess that my hormones could have been playing a part also?

I look at the clock quite often and see 1:11, 2:22, 3:33, 4:44, 5:55, but 11:11 is the freakiest.

After something awful happened to me in 2003 I spent nearly four years waking up at the exact time it happened 5:12 am a few times a week. My therapist says it is a symptom of PTSD. Perhaps you were more devastated by the events of 9:11 than you are consciously aware. Yoga helps, and no you are not weird. :)

Okay, let me rephrase this whole thing.

I think a lot of Americans have forgotten about 9/11. I don't think it's a bad thing to think about it, to remember what happened when that time of day comes up and you happen to notice it. Perhaps saying a prayer for them would help ease your mind? I vote and send an occasional e-mail to Deborah Pryce. That helps ease my mind.

I'm still very angry at the nutjobs that rammed our airplanes into the towers and even angrier at the people that defend them.
