Anxiety only at night right before bed

by Christi

I have this fear that someone will break in and take or harm my child. My child is 5 years old. I still sleep with the baby monitor on. I have locks on the gates on each side of the house, I have a pole in her window jam. I have double locks on the doors to the house from the outside including the garage. I leave the light on all night in the room next to hers so it looks like someone is awake. I leave a light on in the dining room so it looks like someone is awake. If the baby monitor even makes a sound, I cant go back to sleep. Thoughts consume me. I know I am being irrational but what if I let that noise go and something really did happen. I would never be able to forgive myself. I just don't know what to do at this point.
