    For the past week, I've felt scared whenever I was in my room, had a lot of bad dreams and recently this happened:

    I smelt aftershave when I was revising on my bed. I couldn't follow the scent because when i moved away from the scent it didn't get stronger or weaker. It was just in one place. I wasn't that scared at first so I carried on working. Later my friend told me some scary possibilities then I got more scared.

    Despite all this I thought it was silly to be scared so I tried to spend a night there. That evening I was physically exhausted and really tired so I thought I'd fall asleep straight away but I managed three hours of light sleep. When I tried to wake up, it was a struggle and that scared me. Although this was probably cause of stress I'm still scared of my room.

    I know it's a bit silly but the fact is I am frightened to be in my own room and study and at a time when I really need to be there!

    I'm not looking for logical explanations for the oddities, although that would help. I'm looking for some advice so I can be comfortable in my own room again.

    This is my room at halls. I live off campus.

    I live off campus. All my friends are busy studying, and it's a big ask for them to stay at mine.

    I have a friend staying at the same place as me, I'll ask her to spend one night with me. I really hope I shake it off after that :/

    It's also bad timing cause if it wasn't exam time I could have friends over to hang out and stay over which could help me feel more at ease to be alone in my room

    Revision should be a good excuse to get your friends over to study together

    My room's really small and halls has a common room so it will make more sense to study there.

    I'll invite two and see if they're up for it tho.

    Trust me you are sleep deprived, crazy possibilities come up in your head when your sleep deprived, especially paranoia. The struggle to get up is completely sleep deprivation and stress on your muscles. You are scaring yourself even more, honestly if I wanted to think deeply into everything, I would also be scared to be in my room. Just don't think it to it, it's nothing but sleep deprivation, I know I have been there. You have to understand although we are young and think we are indestructible, sleep dep causes a lot of stress on body and mind and we have some odd side effects. Also don't panic if you have some violent dreams, that is also another side effect.
