  • It's normal to be feeling a little nervous when home alone, no one would want some stranger coming into your house. You gotta build up the mentality that it's YOUR home, that you know this place better than anyone else.
    If you're feeling jumpy all of the time, check the whole house. You'll see that there is no one there. Next, try turning on all the lights if you're still feeling jumpy. You might feel a little strange doing it but at least you get the comfort that no one will be able to hide out in the light.
    Still feeling scared? Lock all the entry doors and windows, shut all of the blinds and shutters. Leave room doors open so you can see inside if you feel like checking a room out.
    Put the TV on or put on some music, with those on you won't be able to hear much, I doubt you'll hear anything really. Call a friend if you're becoming really scared, it will calm down any anxiety you have.
    If you feel in danger and sense that something's wrong, lock all the room doors, hide yourself and call the police. It's even better if you have something to defend yourself with, trust me I've been in that situation before.

    • Las Cruces is about 4 hours away from where I am now and Amarillo Texas hard for me to remember but I'm going to say like probably like 5 hours maybe 6

    • Oh ok, that's actually not that bad, right? I mean at least it's not the other damn side of the country haha

  • My dad was a blackjack dealer so I was home alone a lot in the summers too. I would just lock the door like I was told and then hang out on the internet and listen to music. Time goes surprisingly fast that way! Does your mom call you on her breaks? That can help too.

  • Lol relax there is nothing there. We all have to go through that feeling sometime. In a month you won't even notice that feeling. Turn on a tv show you like and watch it in bed. When you go to sleep put in your ear buds and listen to the music that you enjoy.

    • it did not hurt me just spooked me

    • Still... take good and better care of yourself :)

  • Just tell yourself that if the noises you are hearing are actually something potentially dangerous and not just the random noises that every house makes, then only you will be brutally murdered and not both you and your mother.

    That should help calm the nerves.

    • Thanks lol

    • You're very welcome 😁

  • Have a phone and a weapon in your hands, I guess. Or ask your mom if you can get a dog. Shouldn't you be sleeping, though? Most people sleep at night. I'm guessing you are having a hard time sleeping.

  • If your house is safe (window guards etc if not in a floor 3 and more) why to fear? Put a few shoes to doorstep and turn a light which can be seen from far outside , on.. That will be enough to not fear.
