Sleeping Alone In Silence
I've always felt vulnerable at night when everyone's gone to bed... I don't like the total darkness, I don't like the eerie, heavy silence... it's those that bother me more than sleeping alone. I like some kind of sound to be going on at night; that way I can sleep. Thus, I like it when it rains, storms, when someone gets up- crazily enough, I even felt calmer when my roommates last year were up making noise! (after I learned to sleep through it, that is). I do feel less anxious now that I'm married and can sleep next to my husband, because he will protect me from anything and just having him next to me is like having a strong, safe place where no one can get in.
