  • I literally had the same thing. I always listen to music that I like and is calming.
  • I know the feeling. A few years I had that exact same problem. What I would always do was take some herbal tinctures, you can find them at many drugstores. Just things that calm you down, maybe drink some chamomile tea. I would read for a while and when you get to bed you should try to think of ONE specific color, (I always use white) and focus on that color until you fall asleep.

    I'm really sorry about that. I agree with everything Evie said below. Writing things down is something that really helps me. Another thing that might help you is playing soft soothing music at a low volume, so that it helps you relax and calm down, before/while you go to sleep. A couple years ago I went through something similar. It started right after my grandfather died, so I;m pretty sure that was why. I couldn't sleep alone most nights, and I was just genuinely scared that something bad was going to happen. Talking about it definitely helps (I'm not much for talking about my feelings but once I did I felt a lot better).
    I hope this helps and I'm always open if you want to talk. I hope it get's better soon!
  • Are you sure there is nothing happening that makes you "freak out"? Is there anything you think about or are scared of? I'm not sure if it's stress related, but you could try writing down anything that is on your mind in a journal or piece of paper. You can write down anything you are stressed or worried about, and write what you will do to help yourself not stress about it any more. (Plan to study for a test tomorrow, talk to a friend about a conflict, etc.) Then it might help get it off your mind. Try to avoid screens before you go to bed- even reading on a device.

      A similar thing happens to me--I panic every time I'm getting in the shower, I keep thinking something's watching me (although that's probably the result of too much creepy TV shows xD)
      • I watched IT and ever since I always feel like Pennywise is watching me.

TikTok Users Being Mistreated

Why are people who like tik tok so mistreated on NMG? -Sophia   I'm very sorry that you feel that poeple are being mistreated because they like TikTok! I can assure you that making someon's opinion feel unwelcome - or worse, making the person feel unwelcome - is never the intention, and I apologize if it comes across that way on the website. I think that many NMG members have very strong opinions on TikTok (myself inclued), because the company that runs it has many problems, including (but not…

Friends With Serious Problems.

Important, TW for mental health issues and mentions of substance abuse, specifically of alcohol by a minor.   Hi there, Just a warning this is going to belong because these issues have been bottled up inside me forever. So basically I have a friend who I've been friends with since about grade 3(5 years). She was always a bit more mature than me in ways-interested in boys when I thought they had cooties, wearing makeup before I felt pressured to do so myself. She had her first real makeout kiss…
