I have a situation that I would like to explain, and hopefully get some form of an answer.
When I say, hear a noise outside or in the other room, I get extremely nervous. I convince myself that there is someone outside my home, that someone may have been in the next room, etc.
This leads to me generally going into that same room and studying the room very closely from anywhere from 2 minutes to sometimes even an hour. I notice every little thing, whether the door seems to be cracked open an inch or two more than it was an hour ago, if it looks like a pillow was moved from it's previous position, if a shoe seems to have moved or if the deadbolt on my door is turned a little more than I thought it was, etc. I can only leave the room when I have convinced myself that I have noticed everything. And I always unlock and re-lock every door leading into my house several times a night.
This has caused extreme sleep loss, and is taking it's toll on me. I just want to know what could possibly be wrong. A form of anxiety?
