Since my childhood I have fear for darkness. Now I’m 24. If someone (atleast one person) is with me I dont get frightened. But if I am alone at night even in my own room and if its dark I feel panicked. I feel like some one is following me (ghost kind of thing). I am feeling bad to tell you people like this but please help me.
I’m suffering from a similar problem now. I never had this irrational fear before, but as I have now moved away from home (I am an expatriate now, in Sweden) I am finding it difficult to sleep at night in the dark……. I always keep a dim bedlamp on and it seems to be helping a bit…..
