    Active Imagination, Maybe?

    I constantly tiptoe downstairs because I think I hear something down there when I'm home by myself. Theres never anything there, of course. So I feel silly. I guess a bit or paranoia mixed in with a somewhat overactive imagintaion is the cause. It freaks me out nonetheless.

    I Hate My Husbands Night Shifts

    I am naturally an anxious person and the reason I am on here this morning is because I suddenly woke up and then thought I'd heard a noise. I often lay awake into the early hours imagining I heard noises. There is a toasting fork under our bed although if we were burgled in the...

    Right now it's just me,

    my little brother, and my dog in the house. We hear footsteps coming from the basement. I tell my brother it's just people running on the sidewalk, because he's too young. I always feel like someone is watching me. Just watching me, not doing anything else. I'm terrified to...

    The 3/4 Dog

    I have this little plastic 3/4 dog, you know the kind, it's designed to look as if it's head is buried in the dirt and the rest of his body is sticking out. Mine is motion sensitive, when someone walks by, it passes gas, and whines, then it barks. It's kind of cute. My Grandson...

    It Bugs the Hell Outta Me.

    I don't know how it got so bad, but it can get to the point where I actually hide in a closet & hold my breath so that I don't give away my location. It's awful.... I can go into full blown panic mode. I have even woke up from a dream with that feeling. I can't seem to stop...
