I Sleep With My Bedroom Door Closed

    I keep my door closed

    because it feels right. If I keep it open, it feels like someone is watching.

    I always keep my door closed,

    because my dog keeps bringing in trash whenever I leave it open. Plus I am a private person in real life, so I keep it closed.

    Am I Weird ?

    Since I was a kid I have always slept with my bedroom door shut....likewise my bedroom window.... It's hard to say, even in hot weather - hey, we DO occasionally get hot weather in the UK! - I have to; I get disturbed easily with sounds so I like complete silence.... Having...

    I have security issues I guess.

    I can't sleep unless my bedroom door is closed, closed WELL. Then I can't sleep with my back facing the door, even if the door is closed, so I used to sleep on my back, because it was the best position I felt safe in. For a very long time I couldn't sleep but on my back, but...

    I used to not because I let my cats sleep with

    me, but my husband kiboshed that. I miss their warmth and purrs, but I can see why he didn't like it. There are upsides though, like having foil over the windows making it pitch black.

    I always close and lock my door

    before I sleep. My kids know my rules, and they too will lock the door as they enter. I have a few reasons behind it.(1) The first is the fact that I am a home nudisst, my kids often sleep in the same room as me. I don't want my mom and dad or relatives suddenly come over to my...

    I always have my bedroom door closed.

    People find it really annoying, but I want some privacy. I just don't feel comfortable with my door open.

    Most of the time I do.

    When it is a normal night I mostly close my door before I go to sleep. The only time I keep my door open is I just woke up out of sleep paralysis or a nightmare. Then I keep my door open. I feel a lot safer if my dog has access into my room. If he sleeps in my room with me...

    I Can'T Stand It To Be Open...

    Maybe it's because I like my privacy, or I subconsciously feel safer with my door closed, but I can't stand it to be open, especially if I'm trying to sleep. I honestly don't remember the last time I tried to sleep with it open. Even if it's stuffy, I won't open it, unless I'm...

    If I don't have the door closed my cats come

    into the bedroom, jump on the bed, walk on me & wrestle on top of me. You try sleeping like that!

    the dogs are my alarm system.

    those ankle bitters bark at any out of the ordinary noises or activity. Then my bedroom door is my secondary alarm system. it let's me know if the intruder is in the back of the house. if they open that door my Mossberg maverick 88 with my surefire attached will greet them 8...

    Am I the only one who feels way to exposed with

    the door open? No? Excellent. I get paranoid with my door open. I watch way too much paranormal shows or my own good. Sometimes I would feel as if some is standing their watching me *shivers*. Not cool at all. With my door closed I feel safe and content.

    I always close my door.

    Its uncomfortable leaving it open. Like it physically bothers me to leave it open if I'm going to sleep.

    I always freak out when I go to bed.

    I shut my door, prepare my wall of pillows (which gives me security) and my blanket. I turn on my butterfly, (bed lamp) and put on my headphones. I hate it when I hear a cracking noise or when something reflects on my walls. SCARY!! I dont even look at my door!!! The thought...
