Is it weird that I'm still scared of the dark?
I'm 16 and still have this fear that when I'm lying in bed, somebody is watching me and is going to walk over and stare at me. it sounds crazy but I've been having this fear for a little over 2 years. usually when I sense the imaginary "monster" I have to shiver (sometimes uncontrollably) to shake the fear off. I try to just lay and face the fear but I feel so helpless. is this normal to feel this way? does anyone else get this too? thank you everybody for your help.
