30 October 2019 | Doppelgangers, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I work as a nurse at Guys hospital in London.  A few years ago I was working on night shift. I saw one of my colleagues enter the charge nurse office in the morning around 7am. She did not say hello or wave to me.

She did not come to the handover in the morning and I assumed she was on a management day. I thought no more about it.

That night, I was on night shift again and this nurse phoned the ward asking for her duty rota.I asked why she had not got it that day as I had seen her going into the office in the morning. This nurse swore to me she had not been at work that day. That office was only used by senior nurses and she was the only white senior nurse who used the office. All the other senior nurses were black
I do not hallucinate and know of one other episode of someone seeing a doppelgänger on the ward opposite to mine. It still scares me to this day.

    One thought on “Doppelganger?

    1. Nice setting and interesting apparition! I have never seen a normal person with his/her doppelgänger except for a shaman-like elderly reverend acquainted to me. Naturally, “his” didn’t scare me.
