Voices / Silence at night?

So I was home alone tonight and kept seeing things move in the corner of my eye and every time I turned to look they were gone. It's 4am (I don't really sleep much at the moment) and I can hear walking and breathing and whispering. Its happened before, they don't really speak to me I can just hear them. Its always the same corner of the room. Im hiding under my duvet right now. People think its bizarre that I'm still scared of the dark at 18 but you can't really blame me when whenever im alone this happens.
And sometimes when its totally silent its like I can hear the silence and it really hurts my head so I have to put earphones in to get rid of it
Does anyone else have this???

I'm still scared of the dark and i'm 25.

For me, I find that the dark makes it far too easy for my brain to create things that aren't there and make me anxious - it seems the more anxious I get the worse the other things get.

I also have to sleep with earplugs, a nightlight and the duvet wrapped right over my head.
I really don't think there's any shame in it - you've got to do what you've got to do to improve your chances of getting a good night's rest. :hug1:

The dark is a bit of a trigger for my voices, so is tiredness, so it makes sense that they happen mostly in the evening or late at night.

I am 22 and I still sleep with a teddy and wrapped up like a burrito in my duvet. It's kind of ridiculous but I need to feel safe and warm. Also, getting decent quality sleep and enough sleep is really important for managing voices. No caffeine late at night, hot shower, cold room, warm socks - that's my routine at night and it seems to help me relax.

Sometimes I have the radio on but not so often lately as the voices have started talking on top of the radio which is terrifying.

It is important to relax though.
