for years and years 15 years i believe it is. i have been deathly scared of the dark. i sleep with my closet light on i will not leave my door open and my dog has to be in there until i was 17 my mother slept with me because if she didnt he would have panic attacks to the point they would have to take me to the hospital.
i wont go outside at night for fear i will be attacked or killed.
when i am in the dark and i do try to close my eyes all i see is images of someone coming into my room killing me, or a horror movie it puts me in a state of shock.
i am diagnosed bi polar, and manic depressive and i have insomnia
ive been to thearapy, been on meds, been in mental hospitals nothing seems to work my parents even locked me in my room with the lights off that obviously made it worse. i have a son now and i cant even sleep in the same room with him because i get to scared in the dark please tell me what more i can do :(
