are you afraid of the dark and silence?

 Share

see title. 

 

i'm really scared of the dark. i get very anxious if i'm at a place outside at night where there's no lights, and i can't sleep without a light on... i'll just recall a bunch of scary movies i've seen and stuff and then i can't fall asleep. 

 

i also get anxious when it's totally silent. i can't sleep without having some kind of audio, usually a replay of a gaming stream or something... or sometimes music. i just put my phone on my nightstand playing audio when i sleep... 

 

i'd like to know if i'm just weird or...

Absolute darkness like in a cave can be freaky.  Doesn't take long to get disoriented or start "seeing" things.

 

As for absolute silence you can't hear your pulse?

Maybe if it is combined with Sleep Paralysis.  Usually, it never gets dark enough for me to have problems.

Defiantly hearing damage.  Not sure if you could do anything about that.

I frequently walk in the pitch dark, and complete silence, it's meh. I used to be scared of the dark, thinking demons would get me like in my nightmares but I learned that doesn't happen irl

It's not so much that people are afraid of the dark, they're afraid of what's in it.

We recently had a power outage in our town at around 10 o'clock about a week ago. Because we lived so far away and in the middle of the tundra it was effectively pitch black and ominously quiet. Which I wanted to go exploring but we recently saw bears in our area so I decided I didn't want to test the bears night vision.

Darkness? Nah. 

 

Silence makes me restless and anxious though. I always have fans running in my bedroom for that reason, to keep me from getting restless when going to bed.

"afraid" of the dark, no, but it makes me uneasy.

 

i don't like absolute silence, I prefer ambiance. during summer i have a fan in my bedroom that provides ambient sound. in winter i generally have my phone playing some form of noise, either music, podcasts or "white noise" (like rain and thunderstorms)

Judge the product by its own merits, not by the Company that created it.

My two favourite things, there's something about the dark that's comforting and especially the silence. We encounter so much noise each day so when it's genuinelly silent i love it. Plus it's easier to listen to the voices in my head.
