For years, when my husband went away on business, I counted the hours until his return. This practice was not as romantic as it might sound. I just wanted to know exactly how long I would have to remain suspended in a state of DEFCON 3: ears perking at any noise; stomach roiling; mind cycling through dreadful what-if scenarios, like a tape stuck on a loop. The reason for all this drama? Until recently I was afraid of being alone in a house at night.I knew this worry was irrational—borderline absurd, even. For one thing, I am an adult. Adults fret about taxes and the Middle East, not the bogeyman. Also, as the mother of two young children, I am almost never actually alone; for me alone roughly translates to “without other grown-ups present.” What’s more, I live in a leafy community filled with graceful 100-year-old colonials, where the big event of the year is a rubber-duck race in the town park. It’s not Utopia, of course, but neither is it teeming with tabloid-worthy crime.And yet from the time that Christopher’s car pulled out of our drive way to the moment he arrived back on our doorstep, I would be on high alert. I spent my daylight hours dreading nightfall. Once the sun set, my imagination kicked into overdrive. While I cheerfully made dinner for my kids, shepherded them down dark hallways, and shooed away monsters under the bed, I was haunted. A rogue’s gallery of evildoers flashed through my mind, each of them taking turns huddling in the shrubs on the front lawn or crouching behind the trash cans out back.Those nights lasted an eternity. I turned on every lamp on the first floor. I kept a small emergency kit—cell and landline phones, plus a flashlight—right by the sofa, where I perched, half-frozen, like a sentry. I couldn’t watch anything with the merest hint of violence: no C.S.I., thank you very much. Instead I stayed glued to reruns of old shows like Family Ties. (Never have I found laugh tracks more appealing.) In the morning, I would be wiped out. Still, I would perform this ritual the next evening, too, in the somewhat superstitious belief that these small measures kept the demons at bay.I can pinpoint the moment when I started thinking of a house as a cage rather than a safe haven: It was when I turned the last page of Richard Peck’s teen novel Are You in the House Alone? A fifth grader, I was forbidden to read it; my mother, correctly, thought I was too young. But she had also told me I wasn’t allowed to read Forever…, by Judy Blume, and that hadn’t scarred me (much, anyway), so I took her warnings with a grain of salt. Mistake! In the book, an adolescent girl is menaced by obscene notes and phone calls before being assaulted—horrors I had never dreamed of. But since I had gone against my mother’s wishes and read the book, I felt I couldn’t tell anyone about the fears that had taken up permanent residence in my brain.

years, when my husband went away on business, I counted the hours until his return. I was so busy in high school that I was hardly ever home, periodalone or not. And then I moved to New York City. I set some rules: The phones had to stay on their chargers. I had to sleep in my bed, not on the sofa. The phone rang in the middle of the night.

How I Overcame My Fear Of Being Home Alone (As An Adult)

Well maybe I should try your tactic and go to bed early because right now I stay up as late as possible. Thanks

Honestly, I’d probably take some Unisom or TylenolPM or something as soon as I put the kids to bed. I know your sleeplessness is due to anxiety, but to me, that’s still a legitimate excuse for a sleep aid.

I am of no help. I have the same problem. My husband is gone several nights a week, and once it’s dark out, I became a huge baby. I leave hall lights on, for no other reason than it makes me feel a little better.

I let my dog sleep in our bed with me as protection when DH (dear husband) is gone (she’s a chocolate lab). I’m not much help 🙂

The eyes can mislead, a smile can lie, but shoes always tell the truth.

I’ve got this problem too. My husband works grave shifts every other week and it’s really messed with me.

This video is about Staying Home Alone Tips.


Let’s be honest: a lot of us sit inside.. . allday. Whether it’s for work or to binge on
the newest TV series, we simply aren’t outsidevery often.
But, what would happen if you
stopped going outside all together?149,600,000 km away sunlight is being ejected
from the sun, shooting across the solar system,through our atmosphere, and if the timing
is right, landing directly on your skin.Feelsgood, doesn’t it? And it’s this sunlight that
begins an amazing chain reaction, which helpsto sustain your life: The ‘Sunshine Vitamin’
Vitamin D that is. Interestingly, some of the cholesterol you
consume is altered and stored in your skin. And when that well travelled Ultra Violet
B sunlight hits your skin, it modifies thischolesterol. The new molecule travels through
the bloodstream to the liver, where it isaltered again, and then to the kidney, where
it is biologically ‘activated’.
This activated Vitamin D works to absorb calcium
from your food, ultimately leading to bonegrowth and strength.In a way, your skin eats
the sun and the sun grows your bones! Perhapswe aren’t so different from plants. Without Vitamin D, your body would not onlysuffer decreased mineralization of your bones,
leading to diseases like osteoporosis, butalso see a decrease in immune function. Furthermore,
there is evidence to suggest that Vitamin. D helps prevent cancer, heart disease and
depression.
Which may explain why those incolder climates with less daylight often experience
the “Winter Blues”.But it’s not just sunlight and Vitamin D that
makes the difference. Many studies have shownthat being in nature can have a mental and
physical effect on the body. While using sophisticatedbrain imaging techniques, brains in nature
showed more activity in the regions associatedwith stability, empathy and love. On the other
hand, viewing man made environments producedactivity in the regions associated with fear
and stress.
On top of it all, if you are often inside,
chances are you’re sitting down.Admit it,you’ve been lounging, watching for
hours. Which may seem harmless, but studieshave shown major health effects linked to
sitting time, such as an increase in type2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Furthermore,
a study of more than 200,000 people founda strong correlation between mortality and
increased sitting time in other words,the longer you sit, the more likely you are
to die prematurely. The scariest part is thatthis is regardless of your physical activity.
So stand up, get outside, and live a little.. . longerthan you would have. After subscribing to our channel and watchingall the videos, that is.
