This Is So Embarrassing

But I am deathly afraid of the dark...I know that your supposed to outgrow this but i'm 19yrs old and terrified of the dark. It probably is pathetic but i still sleep with a night light and my closet door HAS to be closed and my bedroom door cracked a bit...i can't stand scary things like movies or even haunted houses...if i see stuff like that i can't sleep for days (even if it's just the trailer for a movie on tv)..and so help me someone says the B word (B****Man) Ugh i can't even spell it without gettin the creeps...I know it's stupid to be like this but i can't help it...If anyone has any ideas on how to get a little better about this i would greatly appreciate it...Thanks :]

I feel for you because I'm the same. I can't even go for a cigarette at night because I am scared someone is in my garden.

Thanks lol but i thought of that and have taken a few classes but nothin seems to help....I just have this irrational fear of being in the dark and can't seem to get over it...I'm almost fine if there is someone physically in the bed with me, then i don't really need the night light on, but i don't often have someone in my bed so it's not much help lol :]
