Fear of Darkness

At 4am this morning, I suddenly woke up grasping for breath as I can hardly breath. The electricity went out and there was a total darkness. No single light was seen in the room. I immediately stood up and hurried through the door to go out. I opened the main door and good that I saw light over the post right outside our gate. My breathing went back to normal.

Darkness is my worst fear. I mean I do not fear for anything like ghosts and spirits, I fear because in total darkness I will be fighting for life. I would always feel suffocated whenever no light is shown. I don't know how that comes about. It is even insanity to think that air goes with the light , right? But it happens to me every time. Do you have the same fear as mine?

Phobia of darkness is called Nyctophobia . This is very common among young children who are often afraid that some ferocious monsters are just waiting around the corner to grab them whenever the lights are out. Some adults can suffer from this fear - particularly those who suffer from nightmares or have traumatic memories. However, gradual exposure to darkness can be helpful to nyctophobics, accompanied by the help of specialist to help them overcome nightmares and bad memories.

My Fear of Darkness has different grounds. I don't know how exactly this will be defined by the those who specialize about fears. All I know is I hate total darkness cause it takes the life in me.

"The darkness surrounds me
It presses tight
I cannot breathe"
