when ever I'm home alone over night any little sound seems to scare me, like it may just be like my dog but I will get really freaked out and immediately think that someone is in the house and I have to kinda take a step back and realize that I'm over reacting...does this happen to anyone else?
Yep all the time. I hate being home alone. I don't think I'm going to move into a house by myself. I once came back from school and I could have sworn my sister closed the bathroom door. I called out to her whilst I was in the kitchen and she never answered. I went to investigate :p lol and she wasn't in her room nor in the bathroom. I freaked, I grabbed a pole and dialed 000 (emergency number) getting ready to press "the call button". I let my dogs in so they could wonder off and hopefully find "someone" so I could run out and ring the police. It turns out it was the wind making noises in my bathroom. Silly me lol.
Aly, sometimes I wonder where the hell you are lol. :p
I'm the opposite. I LOVE the rare occasions when I get my house to myself overnight, or for a few days. My house is small enough though that I'd hear someone coming in the second they opened a door, haha, so I don't worry too much. I live in a pretty secluded neighborhood and know all my neighbors. We don't have too many random people cruising through for no reason.
