    Not really, I find darkness rather relaxing
    Same! Although tbh there's nothing more relaxing than a dim warm light while it's dark

    Anyone else get scared after switching room light off and getting into bed? I'm one big baby
    You merely adopted the dark. I was born in it, moulded by it. I didn't see the light until I was already a man, by then it was nothing to me but blinding! The shadows betray you, because they belong to me.

    I was scared of the dark when I was a kid and forced myself to walk slowly after turning the lights off. Eventually overcame my fear and now I can't sleep unless its pitch black.

    Just think logically and slowly expose yourself to your fears. Being afraid of the dark isn't really a big deal. I just did it because it was a waste of electricity to keep the lights on while I slept...

    I'm 69. Iwas brought up in care and we used or sleep in these big dormitories and one of the nuns used to come round in the middle of the night and if you didn't have your arms folded across your chest, she suspected us of doing something to yourself so you'd be dragged out of bed by the hair and taken down to the crypt undrt the chapel and left in there in the dark with the dead nuns. Never got over it. I have PTSD because of it.

    The first part is hilarious.

    The second part is serious child abuse. Was this in the UK? Hard to imagine anything like that in this country, though I guess the 1950s were a different era

    Yes, in this country, and in Ireland - all over the world in fact. Christian Brothers and several orders of nuns. From about the 1930s onwards but my research on my book is showing up even earlier than the 1930s. Church and State combined.

    I don't get that scared of the dark.
    In fact, I'm in my element: black like my soul.

    I'm more scared having to walk 15 minutes to a bus stop past 4am to get to work than sleeping in darkness

    a few weeks ago I was trying to sleep and I could hear these weird noises. I turned on the light twice just to reassure myself and went back to bed. I hear the constant noises again and I know somethings not right (I thought it was a ghost at this time). A few minutes later I hear something coming up the side of my bed and I jumped the **** out of my bed and turned the light on. I stare at the corner behind my bed and guess what? a ****ing mouse comes out, looks me in the eye and runs back under my bed.
