I am hardly ever on my own, and i avoid doing so at all costs. I have even kept my daughter of playgroup so i have company. I know at nights that i hate being alone as i am terrified of the dark and creepy stuff so have to take valium and go to bed at 9. but through the day?? it is gettin rediculous.

does anyone else feel like this in the slightest or understand why i mite.
i would like to tackle it but not sure where to start.

i have the kids in most nights im just wondering what i will do when they grow up and go out for the evening lol x

i freak out when I'm on my own, I get very nervous and anxious and afraid. However this is only if I know no one is coming home. If I know there will be someone coming home at a certain time I am ok. If they are coming home very late I still get anxious. I told my mum and she just says 'o don't be silly!' and laughs, she thinks its childishness, because I'm only 20, so does anyone else I've told :redface:

Omg I get this. When I'm upset, I can't take being alone, and it really annoys everyone around me. Cos I say horrible things when I'm sad, so it tends to be "You dont love me, your trying to hurt me, you don't care, your so horrible to me" "Fine, I'll go then" "NO please don't leave me:(" :/
