Since I was four, I’ve had trouble sleeping. I feel as if someone’s going to get me at night or break in. When completely alone, I barricade myself into a single room, set the alarm, keep my dog with me, but still have trouble sleeping. Every night it’s the same thing: Check windows and doors- Make sure everything is locked- Hear if there is any disturbances or noise- Don’t look around the room; my mind makes me see human figures.
I’ve had a panic attack because I thought someone was chasing me, and I usually get goosebumps when I’m alone because I can imagine someone coming around the corner.
Stay away from horror movies : one of my number one rules. I also have terrible, gory nightmares.
