Fear of open shades/curtains at night

Whenever it's night time, or at least about to be night time, I always HAVE to have my shade down or the curtains drawn. I don't know if there is a name for this, or if I'm just weird. But I always get that feeling that somebody... someTHING... is watching me. Since it's summer right now, I'll have my bedroom window cracked open to let cool air in. But even while it's cracked open, my shade/curtains/ HAVE to be covering the openness where I am in line of sight. Even if i'm not in the line of sight sometimes I still get really nervous and run to my window. If i come home one night and my shade is open, I will literally run to my window trying not to look out it for fear there will be someone looking back at me and I'll pull it down as quick as possible. I'm not afraid of the dark. And i'm not afraid of outside. During the day or night. I love taking night time strolls... as long as I know i'm safe. lol. I've always been afraid of someone coming into my house and watching me sleep... but I don't think that's the reason I fear being visible to the outside night time. Ahhh, just thinking about it makes me cringe. I also HAVE to have my bedroom closet door open at night. Is there are type of phobia for any of what I listed? It's really been bugging me lately.
