    I'm not one to be too easily scared

    but I'm more freaked out then scared right now. I'm at a family friend's house babysitting her dog, cat, and three horses for a few days, and there is a full bodied mirror in the main room. I'm in the spare bedroom right next to the main room and all I keep thinking about is a...

    I can't watch anything remotely scary

    or listen to scary stories, and I'm still kinda scared of the dark, I can climb down a well in the ground and abseil down a cliff, but I can't walk around without a torch what is wrong with me?! Anyone else like this?

    I can never watch horror movies alone .

    .. too risky! I get really into the movie and I can scream really loud whenever something weird and that girl with black hair and white dress shows up.

    I have always been kind of paranoid about people

    but recently I've developed a phobia of older men and of being raped. It's bad enough where I have become uncomfortable being touched by older guys, even family members. It's extremely uncomfortable.

    I'm currently home alone with my two dogs

    and there are a bunch of noises in the bathroom from the wind blowing things around but I'm still scared as hell. Every time I try to calm down something else just scared me again. I wish I weren't so jumpy •~•

    So, I'm in college, and today I was sitting in

    the hallway waiting for a class to leave the room because my next class was in there. Awkwardly on my phone like a loner I paid no attention to what was going on around me. Students walked up and down the hallways and I was in my own little world. Then, the door to my next class...

    I hate when people have those extremely loud

    I'm the girl in the back screaming at everything. I don't go to horror movies anymore in the theater just because I started to feel bad for everyone else.

    I don't exactly scare easily.

    Horror movies don't scare me. Sure I'll like twitch or wince when something scary happens but i don't really get scared from it. Neither do scary stories or books. But if someone walks unexpectedly behind me and touches my shoulder or starts to talk I'll jump about a foot in the...
