THANKS a lot because now I finally have answers to my questions. I suffered domestic violence as a kid and mental abuse now I always used to wonder why I can’t sleep with lights on, having nightmares, turning around frequently to check my surroundings, feeling being watched; that’s why I hate windows and curtains at night, I am awake over intervals at night and being thirsty and sweating. I frequently turn on my back to see if someone is there.. I can’t tolerate silence at night as I start to hallucinate movements and sounds thus play songs.. nothing helps and except for this site nobody knows but I wanted to tell that it’s not abnormal as I used to think as a child and those suffering are not freaks.. I once had a panic attack when I was thrown out of my home when I was in 2nd grade and believe me it was the most terrible experience till now and the thing that hurts more is that the reason for this is my parents.. I am seeing this dream in which someone is chasing me and I am running but when I give myself instructions to wake I can hear my own screams in my dream and I know I am dreaming but when I try to move I can’t move my limbs or even open my eyes and after several attempts when I am awake I am breathing hard, sweating and my head is throbbing.. please tell me what this means and how I can get rid of this. If anyone knows a therapist please tell me. Also, this phobia is not our fault.. CHEERS!
