Im 20 years old and a female.. ever since i could remember ive been scared of the dark.. When I was younger my mom was in a abusive relationship and i used to hide in the darkest room behind the doors .. now everytime im home alone or it gets dark and im home alone i panick i jump for every sound i hear, my heart races. Sometimes i pretend i cant hear anything and ignore it but other times i feel my heart race for no reason... If i were to walk in a dark hall or outside in a dark place my heart would race and i walk super fast panicking inside.. I dont know how to handle this anymore.... Ive tried by putting myself in a dark room but i spaz out i cant handle it i feel like im dying or something.. please give advice :(
