Confession: weird fears and quirks

Yesterday as I was laying in bed I was thinking about all those akward routines I have to follow each night before I'll tuck myself into bed. And because I thought it would be an awesome idea to share them here is a list of my weird fears, routines and quirks.
  1. Everytime I go to bed alone I always have to look under my bed and in each corner big enough to hide away in. I know, I know. I'm almost 21 years old and still afraid of monsters wanting to bite my toes of. But seriousely, it's probabely not even too far-fetched to think of a perverted creep climbing in through my bedroom windows. Which is the reason why...
  2. (when alone) I always lock the bedroom door as soon as twilight hits. I just really don't feel comfortable with the possibility of any wierd creatures wanting to eat me or other horrifying stuff - I don't want to go into details here.
  3. A weird quirk I have is that I just can't stand sitting in a room with somebody eating. Urgh. Having to hear the sound of munching and teeth gooifying food. It's the worst.
  4. Or when someone sitting close to me is breathing heavily. I know it's not their fault and I'm sure they don't do it on purpose but it just bugs me. 
  5. I can't go to bed without washing my feet (considering I always take a shower every night before going to bed). I just can't help it. A good thing about it is that this habit is very sanitary but still - I doubt it's normal.
  6. Everytime I write a grocery list or any other insignificant notes I end up throwing the note away if I don't like my handwriting. As long as I have enough time to rewrite the whole note again, of course.
  7. Everytime I see something off-centered (a book on a shelve, an untidy folded cloth) I have to fix it or otherwise I'm afraid I will worry about it until I'll get around to it. Especially when I'm already laying in bed and something off-centered catches my eye I have to get up again, fix it and then I can go back to bed. One time I had to get up at least 7 times before I could finally fall asleep.
  8. I have the incredible fear of falling out of a window or over a bridge or over the balcony railing (you name it) everytime I stand near one of the above. What if someone tries to scare me and out of a unthoughtful movement I jump and fall? Or if someone behind me goes nuts and pushes me out of the window/over the railing/of the bridge- I'm sure you get the idea.
  9. It had become a fond habit of mine to pretend I'm talking on the phone if I'm on my way somewhere during darker hours or even twilight. It's the hope of discouraging anybody with a knife in their pocket or any other evil thoughts on mind to choose me as their next victim that brings me to do such things.
  10. I don't feel comfortable with any tasty body parts (seen from a monsters point of view, of course) sticking out under my bed sheet - which is probabely very common actually - but something I also feel very passionate about is the need to cover my neck (which is especially uncomfortable in those warm summer nights) to prevent being bitten by a vampire. *cough* disclaimer: thinking about it logically and rationally I realize it's very unlikely for something like this to happen, of course. 
How relieving to get that out there...now the only thing I'll have to hope for is that none of those people that would be to blame if some of those fears of mine came true is going to read this post ;)


  1. i check under my bed nightly too!

  2.  Good to know I'm not the only one. :D

  3. I used to have a severe phobia that the house would burn down while I was sleeping- everytime I heard a noise of any sort I had to get up to check it out. It was awful being so afraid every night! I finally got over that, but I still have some things I need to sleep. I sandwich my head between two pillows... can't sleep otherwise! I don't like my legs covered up, but the blanket has to wrap around my waist and backside. I have to make sure the bedroom curtains are completely closed and no one outside could peer in around the sides (this one is a tough one, because my furbabies like to get up in the windowsill and the curtains always wind up parting just a little bit).

  4. Sandwiching your head between two pillows, you say? I wouldn't be able to sleep that way. I guess you could say I get claustrophobic having to imagine my head stuck between two pillows. Considering I'm very picky with pillows anyway. If I have to sleep over at a friend's house I usually end up using no pillow. First, I think it's kind of gross and second, I'd rather sleep wihout a pillow than with an uncomfortable one.

    I think it's the thought of not being in control of ourselves and anything during sleep that brings us to do such things.

  5. I completely have the same fear


Feel free to leave some love.
