i do this too
by: Anonymous

i HAVE to cover my ears, if i don't then i can not fall asleep, i focus on the air around my ear and freak out (i am certain this all started bc i once woke up with a freaking bug in my ear!!!!!) so now i have to cover my ears. I have googled around and now feel a lot less weird as it seems pretty common. Phew.

I have the same problem! I'm not sure it's exactly a phobia for me but I can't stand sleeping without my ears/feet covered. I'm
afraid a bug will crawl in my ear when I'm sleeping or something will grab my feet. I'm getting the shivers just thinking about it!

OH MY GOD I THOUGHT I WAS ALONE!!! I have always covered my ears and body, I don't know why. I have this fear that bugs will get in my ear.

Sleeping with covers
by: JayBird29

I also cannot sleep without my feet covered even if I can feel a slight draft on my feet I won't be able to sleep, I don't know when this paranoia started, sometime when I was a child, but I have the thought that something like an evil spirit will grab my feet and drag me off.

annoying phobia
by: Anonymous

I am 14, and for as long as I can remember, I can't sleep if my ear is exposed while sleeping as well as the rest of my body. I don't fear that poison will go into my ears, but I do fear that something will if I have my ears exposed. summers for me too are annoying and frustrating because I get so hot, but I need to cover myself. if anything is left outside of the covers, it scares me!

This was how I felt too
by: Sarah

When I was 12-16 I had this problem and then I also had another problem during that stage of my life. I had a spirit that use to stand over me when I was I bed and that made covering myself up even more serious. But now that i think of it I may have been covering myself up because of the spirit and subconsciously didn't know.

Fear of sleeping on pillows
by: Anonymous

I have a big problem sleeping as I don't like going to bed as I do not like pillows that are touching my face and I do not like to lie down to go to sleep, I sleep with my head being held up from the pillow by my arm. I have tried all sorts of things but I go into a panic attack if I lie down and often wake up with terrible backache , sitting on the side of the bed.. I am so, so, tired, please can anyone suggest anything to get rid of this phobia.
