Is it normal to be scared of these things at thirteen?
I am scared of sleeping by myself. I don't know why, and this only happend last year. I wa scared when I was little but now I seem to be scared of loads of stuff. I am scared whenever I try to sleep by myself and I always feel like I am being watched . I am scared of zombies and ghosts. At 13! And OCD does not help.
And my parents would just tell me to grow up. They don't take me seriously. And I don't have many close friends offline.
And I am home schooled so no school nurse.

i know i was scared of those things at thirteen, and having four older brothers sure didn't help!! i used to sleep with a night light. try that, i know it sounds childish but it'll help get rid of your fears quicker, trust me! i've been there and done that!!

Being 13 in these times are frighting.I hope you are not really seeing ghosts & zombies.In my life there was always fears until i made my peace with God.When we find out our true purpose in life and realize that there is life after death it always brings peace. I dont think most people understand this.There are real ghosts & zombies its just not that everybody see's them.there are why more things going on around us then we know.Jesus Christ is the answer to all our questions.I will pray for you that our Father in heaven will protect you and bring you peace.P.S. BIBLE means basic instruction before leaving earth.

Wow, that one is difficult. Maybe it would help to isolate what the origin of your fear of being alone is. Perhaps it's not just fear, but possibly Post Traumatic Stress Disorder- where you have problems dealing with stress, period, resulting in an obstinate fear.

The only thing I can think is for a psychologist, although I know that is a shod answer, especially if you have parents like mine that just say deal with things. But, it does still boil down to one point, one must take control of their life. It's like survival of the fittest, and what does not kill us, makes us stronger. Put your faith into something, like God, who is everywhere, and remember that the world isn't that bad of a place.

It is also possible to be suffering from a rather watered down version of paranoid schizophrenia, except- you know that you're afraid of something that you shouldn't be. I say you've already taken the first steps toward helping yourself by realizing the problem.

no its perfectly normal, your normal.

many people have fears of some sort or another, others find these difficult to deal with and bottle them up or start doubting themselves.

you sound very level headed and mature for a 13 year old and the fact u havent shyed away from your problem and spoke to your parents reflects this.....

Its upsetting to you that they havent taking your concerns seriously but they probably think your just going through a phase, a parents answer to everything right?!

go and see your doctor, you may be too young to be seen alone but if you have an older friend or grandparent get them to accompany you or alternatively go to one of those confidential drop in advie centres like the samaritans or ring childline.

go to your library and take out some books that might help you more, to understand ghosts and zombies...why fear them, they cant hurt you and are only portrayed as evil because of television...movie makers wanting to earn themselves a fast buck and get noticed in a large industry...

try not to worry, im 23 and still run up the stairs at bedtime looking behind me if i've just watched a horror movie!....

things will get easier as u age, just remember fear is a natural feeling every humen has and is not an illness.... xx

Did something happen to you just before you started having these problems? Out of interest, why are you home school? Is it to do with the problems you are now experiencing or is it to do with something else? It may be possible that this could be contributing to your problems. Do you do anything social, or outside of your home? Who home schools you, is it your parents or someone else? If someone else home schools you, perhaps you could talk to them about it! If you have other older relatives that you sometimes see or talk to - aunts, uncles, cousins, grandparents - maybe you could talk to them about it!

Honestly, sounds like you are being attacked or oppressed by demonic spiritual forces. Seek out a friendly open church nearby with pastors/leaders who can pray for you, and if okay with your family, go into your home and bless it.

Honestly, no joke.

yeah it is normal. there are lots of people our age who are scared of those things especially after like watching a scary movie or something so..yup don`t worry. try something like a nightlight, music you like on ur favorite radio station or something, and aroma therapy like the kind that helps you sleep..maybe you can find it at like bed bath and beyond or something. good luck!!

your young, it will get better. Just remember there isn't anything there. Sleeping with a lamp on might help. I know when I was your age I was always scared aliens where going to come and get me. I grew out of it after a bit. Hope things get better for you!

If your parents won't help you, you need to search the internet for a teen crisis hotline in your area. Call them and tell them your problem. They can likely help you get the assistance you need to help you quiet irrational fears.

I am 35 and scared of things too. But feeling like your being watched, that is scary. And OCD. WOW. well, you could contact a school counselor anyway even though you are home schooled. I mean you are still affiliated with a school whether you go there or not. Talk to a counselor their and he/she might be able to direct you somewhere else. Good Luck

I think you need to go out there and meet lots of people in order to overcome your fears. You see, your entire world is your home. It's your house, your school, your social ground (most of your mates are online, right?) and I think you are getting to feel suffocated and you really want to get out there and live like other people.

Perhaps your wings are being clipped so you can't fly out there and see the world. Are your parents sensitive to your opinions and feelings? Can you talk to them openly? When you are frustrated and you feel alone, sometimes this gives rise to paranoia and other psychological abnormalities. Do you think your parents will let you have a normal social life or eventually let you go to school like everyone else?

Ok my advice to you would be this. First, there are no ghosts or peeping toms or spooks watching you. It's all in your mind. Secondly, beleive in yourself. You can take yourself to wherever you want to go as long as you have an open mind and a strong will. Thirdly, when you feel an anxiety attack or fear coming, take deep breaths and tap your left wrist 10 times. Repeat if necessary. Instead of using your finger, you can also tap using a rubber band. The tapping motion helps you relax. Lastly and most importantly, have faith in God, for only He can help when no one else can. And He loves you no matter what.

Sweetheart, you do have a friend, you have me. I have three grown up daughters and six grandchildren, three of then are girls and one of them is your age and she is just the same, yes it is normal to be scared, I get scared of many things and I'm 56. I don't like sleeping alone but I have my Bible to read and that's what i do when I get scared. You have a right to be scared of ghosts and things,I't called being human, many many adults are but they arn't as brave as you and admitt it, but our creator does protect us from such things if we ask him.I'm not a religious twit, but when your scared of something you turn to the only person who can take this feeling away.Talk to him, he will listen, I promise you that's what he's there's for.
Your Mother and Father may not understand the reason for your problem but I do.Have you tried talking to them about it? they might surprise you. Can you think of anything that happened to you in particular last year, did a relation die,or did you watch a film that was bad, or have you seen things or heard noises in your room at night, do you have bad dreams. I am a therapist in herbal medicine and nutritional therapy and I give my granddaughter Chamomile tea at bed time,you can also put a few drop of Lavender oil on a hanky and go to bed with it, both will help you to relax.Take a few deep breaths as well.It's all very well people giving you advice but unless it's sound constructive advice it's useless to you. You need to relax your mind as well as your body.If you don't do this soon you will end up with depression or a nervouse breakdown.I don't know where you live, but if you are in the Kent area like Margate, you could come and see me. There is an old proverb: THERE IS NOTHING TO FEAR BUT FEAR ITSELF! Try and think why you feel like this or they may not be any real reason at all, it's just you being you. Talking is the best medicine, a trouble shared is a trouble halved. Have a good cry my love, it's the bodies way of releasing toxic waste and a stress release valve.
If you need to talk to me, I am always here, ring me 01843 588668 or e-mail: [email protected]

If you have a TV or radio in your room that could help you, or at least distract you. Dont worry about zombies there is no such thing!

It's totally normal. I'm 29 and once in a while I'm afraid to sleep in my bed so I'll sleep on the couch so I'm near my kids. My daughter is 11. I let her sleep with a lamp on all night. She's afraid of her room being dark and having her door closed. A night light isn't even bright enough for her. We have both seen quite a few spirits in this house.

I hope you will feel better to know that alot of "NORMAL" 13teen year olds are afraid to sleep alone alot of the time,and I know a few of them who are. You could worry more than some of the other 13teen year olds that you know? maybe you feel things very deeply? Either way,you are not alone,and you seem normal to me,though you could be under some stress or been worried about some things. Talk things over with those adults you know who will listen in your family or at school,ect.....but not strangers you don't know,ok?

i got the same problem and I'm 27 xx the problem is that i REALY believe in ghosts so i CANT be cured and i ll never stop believing xx

You could get yourself a night light, or tell yourself that Zombies and Ghosts don't exist or not watching scary films b4 bed.

hell i'm 17 and i'm scared of ghosts. haha. know that your house is secure and zombies aren't real =)

It is perfectly normal to be afraid of things at 13. About sleeping by yourself, with all the bad things going on in the world you are just afraid of something bad to happen to you.

Cheshire Cat
You should be more afraid of humans. They are by far, more scary than zombies and ghosts. Heck, the last ghost I saw RAN AWAY!! Cowards!

Anyhow, you should be more afraid of being committed. You are way too old for this. So just replace those zombies and ghosts with nice men in white coats carrying a straight jacket for you and I can assure you that, while you will probably not get more sleep, your fears will be more justified.

You might also fear not being terribly well-adjusted socially after graduating from "home school." That might be even more frightening than being committed actually, since you probably would get more social time in an asylum...

Keep your mind off of it. Try watchin' TV til you fall asleep, or listening to music and stuff. Be more social, and get more friends, because it seems like you need to talk to them about other things too if you can't talk to your parents which don't wanna understand.

Lay off the scary movies for awhile, and remember there's no such thing as zombies and ghosts. Well atleast I don't believe in them.

I went through the same thing at almost exactly the same age. I was never scared of sleeping alone, but I was terrified of burglars, theives, being kidnapped, etc...and the worst for me was that my house was going to catch on fire.

All I know is I grew out of it (I'm 22 now) by sleeping with a stuffed animal who is still on my bed to this day...not sure thats the best solution...hahahaha

it is ok but mabey when you are ready you could go to a phycaitryst

Realize that your house is secure and no one can get in besides you and your family .

I am no whiz at anything, but my opinion of my cousins that are home schooled just dont get to exprience LIFE in general. Do what you can to interact with other kids your age in sports or church or just anything.

You need to tell your doctor. When your parents take you for a regular exam, tell him/her exactly how you feel! Your doctor will not ignore you. No, it is not normal and suggests that you some issues that need to be dealt with. Also, tell your friends' parents. They can intervene and even take you to the public health facility in your area for help.

I think all children have fears of one kind or another. I am sorry that your parents have such an uncaring attitude about your fears. Try a night light for starters.And check your room out before dark to assure yourself that all is save and secure in your room. I homeschooled my girl and she will tell you that what I am about to tell you will help you without having to use ocd's. If you have a Bible go to Psalm 23. Read it as it is, first. Then read it like this: 1. The Lord is "star's"(put your real name here) shepherd; "star" shall not want. 2. He maketh me "star" to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me "star" beside the still waters. 3. He restoreth "star's" soul:he leadeth "star" in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake. 4. Yes, tho I, "star" walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I, "star" will fear no evil: for you are with me;your rod and your staff they comfort me. 5. You preparest a table before me in the presence of my enemies: you annointist my head with oil; my cup runneth over. 6.Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I,"star" will dwell in the house of the Lord forever. Now do the same with John 3:16 For God so loved "star," that He gave His only begotton Son, that when "star" (accepts Him in her heart) believes in Him she shall not perish, but have everlasting life. *****Yes, He watches over you; and, angels are assigned to you and me."Star," He loves us so much that He knows how many hairs are on your head. He watched you being formed in your mothers womb and had knowledge of you even before you were concieved. He knows all about you and your fears,tears,grades, every breath you take is noticed by Him. Did you know ever tear you shed is collected in bottles? Thats how precious you are to Him. Ask Him to help you with your fears. Time and time again He tells us to fear not for He is with us always. Just ask Him to come live in your heart. No, fancy words are necessary. Something as simple as: Jesus, I believe you came and died for me, so that we will never be separated again by sin. I ask you please come into my heart and be my friend and my protection. Show me how loving and kind You are. Fill me with Your Spirit till I am full, and then fill me more. Thank you for loving me so much and for giving all of You for me on the cross. ***** "Star if you prayed those words with all your heart and believed what you said. He will always be with you. If you need Him, His 911 number is never busy. He will never tell you He hasn't time for your needs or to hear what you may be afraid of. He has told us: Fear not my children, I am with thee. And He never lies. When you are afraid, pick up your Bible and say in a firm voice; "In the name of Jesus, fear must leave my mind, my room,my house, my yard,my street. Jesus will be watching for you, fear and He will not let you come back to bother me." Then trust Him to care for you and to be your Guard. And let me tell you a little secret. Zombies and ghosts are the worlds beliefs and satans helpers. By reading the Bible you will be equipped with the armor of God and He will protect your back for you. The bigest scariest demons in hell are terrified of Him. Does He love children? Look at Luke 18:15 And they brought unto Him also infants, that He would touch them: but when His disciples saw it, they rebuked them. BUT Jesus called them unto Him, and said, Suffer(allow) the little children to come unto me, and forbid( don't tell them to leave) not; for of such is the kingdom of God. He healed many children and even brought some back from death before He was crucified. "Star," ask Jesus to come and hold you in His arms. Believe me, nothing is stronger than He is...NOTHING! Start reading good books like Hinds Feet In High Places by Hanna Hunard or The Book of Virtues by William Bennett,or The Chronicles of Narnia. Go to Google and look for these. The pilgrims progress wikipedia, the free encylopedia has the book to read and if you enter hinds feet on high place and go to pg 4 look for: story of much afraid. I think Hinds Feet would really help you. Just put your name in where much afraids name is. If you like you can mail me and I will try to help you more. I have just put you on my prayer list and the prayer list at church for the Lord to give you confidence and courage in your life.***********************************... FOR ALL WHO ARE IN THE SAME SITUATION HERE, YOU WILL BE PRAYED FOR BY ME AND MY CHURCH AS WELL. I HOPE THIS WILL COMFORT ALL OF YOU.

Well, I think you should try and talk to your parents again, and if they still tell you to "grow up" then you should go to talk to a therapist that can help you or find a doctor that will listen to you.

Just to help ease the situation I would suggest getting a night light.
To help yourself fall asleep try to focus on your breathing. When I can't sleep I count my breaths, when I lose track I start over. Also focus on taking deep breaths. Breath in (good energy) through your nose and out
(bad energy/thoughts) through your mouth. It helps distract your mind and helps you relax.
Picture yourself in a "happy" place (real or imaginary).
If you have nightmares try telling yourself (in your dream) that it is just a dream, it is not real. That helped me get over night terrors when I was younger.

It almost sounds like you are having some anxiety. You are 13, are your parents willing to take you to the ob/gyn yet? I know it's not the ideal doctor to talk to but at least they could point you in the right direction.
If you are having a problem getting through to your parents are there other relatives you could talk to? If your parents won't listen to you, find someone who will!!! In the meantime just try to stay calm and be assertive about getting the help that you need and deserve. Take care of yourself!

Just take it easy, u need to grow ur social circle, and i guess ur heading in the right direction by discussing ur fears in this kind of forum, thats a first sign that u want to get out of it. Ghost, zombies all look good only in movies and they are created to give the thrills to the people who need it, so let them be there, Self belief is the only thing that can help you. Dont tell urself that ur fears are big, but tell ur fears that how big ur self belief and god is.
Take care
