This is for the other single women on the board.
Do you ever get really scared at night? I mean the kind of scared that keeps you awake, wondering if you heard someone or something, wondering if you could get to a weapon if someone broke in, if you could get the kids out if there was a fire/prowler…
I never worried at my old place…it was an up & down duplex, and there was a man upstairs, and I knew if I screamed he would hear me. Since the move,(end of July) I never though about it at the new place, but the other night, I heard something at the front door, and I got up to check it out (1:55 am) and the screen door was blowing in the wind.Before I opened the door to close it, I tried to turn on the outside light…nothing. I figured it was burnt out. I shut and locked the screen door and the inside door too…
2:55 am, I awake from a peaceful dream about nothing important. I am sure I heard a terrible pounding on the screen door…my heart was beating so hard I was afraid I would pass out! I sat there terrified, I thought I heard someone around the outside of the trailer, and I was staring at the window…sure I would see a face or something. Fortunately…the blind was almost all the way down, and the sheers were reflecting the light from outside…so noone could see in or out. I was too scared to get up and check it out.
Last night I turned on the outside light…and IT WORKED.
I just dont know what to make of this. I live in a quiet tidy moblie home community (trailer park) and even at 2 55 am on a fri night…there are still people awake…I cant imagine someone was trying to scare me…why would they? But I really thought I heard something…and my inner alarm was going full blast. I cant remember being so scared before.
Anyone have a similar experience?
