Hey Toxic - wish I had answers, but, alas, I am no doctor. Have you thought about where the root of your fear comes from? Anything at all pop into your mind? I'm sure the first step to conquering this fear is understanding why it is you are afraid... have you ever seen a doc about it?

Ah Toxic... I'm so sorry to hear that. Have you ever addressed it in therapy? That's really the only advice I can offer you. It is understandable that you would fear it still to this day, but please have faith that you can get through it with some help, ok? I'm sure your partner would be happy to listen, help and support you, but a professional might be able to help you get through it.

Also... have you ever had your partner just hold you in the dark? Just a thought...

i also fear the dark. some people laugh when i say that, but it only means that they have not experienced utter darkness. things come out in the dark and faces appear, secrets are exposed, and usually i am alone. inside and out.

the dark is honestly nothing to joke about.
it is a fearful place.

and honestly we should be afraid.
rememberance.

I'm the opposite I find safety in the dark.When I was young my three older brothers used to tease and ridicule me and when it gets dark I can hide from them. I've only worked nite shifts because I can't stand what I see during day time to many judgemental people at nite it all goes away and I can get away from some of it and hide in the dark where they can't find me.

I can relate. I'm also scared of the dark. I'm always scared that some crazed murderer will come out, and I see dark shadows moving in the corners of my room at night. It's scary, but I think having a nightlight helps. Why don't you try that?

I am extremely terrified of the dark. I am very paranoid and when it's dark out I'm always afraid someone is going to break in and hurt me or something... I also believe that there are a lot of dark forces that come out in the shadows and they have hurt me in the past.. I sleep with the tv on every single night and I never ever ever step foot in utter darkness.
