I can't handle the pitch black and get terrified something will suddenly grab me or something freaky, is that normal? Been like this since puberty years, strangely enough

I think most people have fears like that and you will grow out of them. Why not get a low power night light for your bedroom. Nice to hear from a fellow kiwi.1

I can remember a time, @Sailormoonprincess, that being in 'Pitch blakc' was very hairy and scary for me. I was living at my grandma's old big mansion with my parents and I had to sleep way upstairs, where it was so very spooky. And it was known to have a few few floaters around, if you know what I mean... Ghosts.
However, after awhile, living on my own, I Overcame it. I learned to not only Adjust to the world with everything to offer, but to also 'Adjust' to living on my own and Appreciated... The darkness and being alone sometimes after a long day at work or just whatever.
For now, keep a small night light handy in your room so you can sleep better and still can See... Better. This will Still give you some comfort and besides, many people do this just so they can have a little light to guide them, should they have to get up in the night.
With age, I believe you will get past it, it could be something as a girl back then that you never forgot and you feel a safe haven in your room with keeping more light on the subject.
Good luck and sweet dreams. xx0
