I've never gone to the doctor for anxiety or panic attacks, but i'm pretty sure that's what's been going on. I just moved into an apartment with my boyfriend and he's gone a lot for work. This is the first week i've had to sleep here by myself. The first two nights i've slept with the bedroom door open and a light on in the laundry room. Tonight i'm trying with the door shut and locked hoping that it will make a difference. When i was in college i had someone unlock my door and come in when i was sleeping and ever since then i've had a really hard time sleeping for fear that someone is going to break in and "get" me. I dont have trouble when my boyfriend is here, but when i'm alone its really tough. I sleep with a fan on and i've tried the radio and tv but those just keep me awake. Any other suggestions about what i can do. I also have tried taking Advil pm and it makes me tired but my mind still swims so i end up fighting the effects of the meds. Any ideas?

I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
