    Default Anxious being alone

    Sorry I am not sure if this is in the right area. So my two DDs are with their Dad this weekend. I am home alone by myself and I feel so sick and anxious about being by myself. Does anyone else feel like this? What helps? Or am I just stupidly strange

    Hi
    How are you doing now?
    I know my mam would get like this form time to time, she would usually occupy herself with a movie or some puzzles when there was no one around.
    I think it might come from having a busy house, then when everyone is out the silence can be deafening in a way.

    I'm a little better now thanks for asking. Ive gone to bed to watch some tv and hopefully do some reading. I'll keep trying to keep myself busy though.

    I tend to have every light on in the house and sleep with the tv on if I'm ever home alone! I get totally freaked out and anxious!

    A wise man once said
    Why be anxious
    95% of the things we worry about never happen.
    Of the other 5 % of the things we worry about 1/2 is completely out of our control
    So
    Why be anxious?

    That is something I take to heart. There are solutions like have some one stay over but it does not deal with the problem.

    Either way I hear you and feel for you. Wow did I say that, 'feel' and I'm a bloke. Quick I better get back to my wood working forum

    Edited typos. - don't ya hate touch screens phones and auto correct

    My DF hates to be alone. I usually have to give him plenty of warning if it need to be out (day or night) so he can arrange for someone, father or sister etc, to visit while I'm out.

    I was completely hysterical once, we had just moved into a new rental, I was pregnant with ds and dh went out for the night, drinking with new colleagues. House was still sparse and didn't feel like "ours", all our computer, tv's, stereo and kitchen equipment blew a fuse - I had no lights, no tv, no idea where the f'ing fuse box was.... All I had was my mobile. I didn't have a smart phone then, dh's phone was out of battery and he was having a good time in the city so not coming home any time soon. Somehow,I got onto the internet on my basic phone, chatted to a friend on fb in the UK, he googled the guy who my dh was out with and got a number for me. I called and managed to convince my husband to come home as I was seriously freaking out... He came home eventually and got the lights back on, but I have never been so scared in my life!! I feel anxious at the best of times, but that was a corker!!

    Just want to let you know that I have a friend who is the same. She usually has her mum over when her dh is working night shifts.
