I’m an adult female, and I’m terrified of nighttime. I hate the feeling of being awake at 3 AM and feeling utterly alone. I hate the vulnerability of sleep. I simply cannot force myself to close my eyes and let go of my surroundings because I’m always on edge. It’s a vicious cycle because the later I stay up the more fear I build up and the worse I feel about “wasting another day” by sleeping in really late. I’m concerned about my blood pressure and stress levels. Sleep should help mend my stress and help me control stress, not be the biggest contributing factor to my stress. Advice?
