Does dusk-phobia exist?, because since i was a child i've always really really fear that moment of the day where lamppost aren't on and i'ts barely dark. I feel really depressed in that short time. I'm 18 now and i feel the same way everyday only when i see outside. Curiosly, it doesn't happens when it's raining, maybe because it's not quiet, and when the city is ''empty'' i despair. Is there anybody here with the same problem?. pd: i'm unable to watch ''Bastille - Pompeii'' music video because i start trembling.
I get depressed at night too OP. Have been this way since I was in my middle twenties around the same time I met my ex-wife.
Strange uneasy feeling of isolation, self-reflection, sadness and general unease.
The dark also makes me annoyed too, like being in a dark room feels suffocating. Thankfully I live out in the boonies so we get a lot of moonlight so I keep the drapes open.
I know exactly how you feel. Ever since high school, something about the hours between 5-6 at night makes me super depressed as the sun slowly goes down.
It's weird/empty feeling.
I've had this. Sunsets are beautiful but when the sun went down it was like an immediate anxiety crept into my stomach and chest, as well as those feelings you describe.
It wasn't a direct fear of the dark either, at least in so far as I l'm aware. Just a general anxiety and feeling of isolation and dread.
It isn't as pronounced anymore, though. The worst of it was probably a couple years ago. Also in retrospect I think it may have seemed worse in the winter months.
Yeah you sound a lot like me. Do you have trouble sleeping at night too? I find it very easy to sleep during the day, seems to be when I'm tired too. But at night I'm on edge, and usually end up having to take a sleeping pill if I haven't exerted myself during the day.
No, if anything, I sleep too much now.
When I was little I would frequently be on edge at night though. My heart would beat really fast and it was hard to breathe.
Hope everything is all righr with you, anon.
There's a name for this, isn't there? For that brief period where evening is setting in and the streetlights/headlights haven't come on yet?
IIRC, it's referred to as "Terror Twilight". The 90's band Pavement named their final album Terror Twilight in reference to it.
Again, same. I often nap too much now. But I have to be up early for work and getting home during the afternoon leaves me time to sleep.
When I was a kid I was kind of the same, but I had a fear of always dying in my sleep. No clue where it came from, but I'm sure it's played a part in being tense/introspective at night.
Read the rule newfag. Are you just going to keep posting this in every thread? Why haven't you been banned yet?
Yeah, because /x/ is for only the supernatural right? Fuck off, newfag, fear threads are nothing new.
