To be honest I thought it was normal for a grown adult to be afraid of the dark. I found out it's not. I need help please I'm deathly afraid of it. I tried the exposure method and I freaked out. Just the thought of being alone, and anything like a ghost or some demon can just pop up n whisper in your ear or flash their face scares me! Basically all the stuff you see in movies are what goes through my mind. I know it's "not real" but my mind just goes wild. Anyone else afraid of the dark? How can I overcome it?

You’re hardly the only adult afraid of the dark. My college roommate turned every light in the room on when she came home. She was your age. I go through periods when I don’t feel safe sleeping with my door closed. I used to be nervous in the dark, but I have a light right next to my bed that I can turn on without reaching (bc demons might grab my arm, right?). I’ve felt better since then.1
