I have recently had to put my salt lamp in my hallway, so i can go to the toilet at night. I'm feeling like a damn babe...but if I don't do it, I can not get out of bed at night. I feel like an idiot (at 46)...

Are you anxious about stubbing your toe?

Yes but anxiety comes from somewhere. I'm guessing you're scared of the dark, or you use the light to keep you company?

I'm the same way and I'm an adult too. It's okay! I thought as I got older I wouldn't need a nightlight but I either leave the TV on or have a nightlight and just accepted it

I have a lamp on in my house all night because I am paranoid about someone breaking into the house during the night and therefore I would be able to fight them off easier because I will be able to see them.
I am also in my forties, so it seems there are a few of us that like to see at night because of our anxieties.

On the other hand, if someone did break into your house at night, you would know how to move around in the dark better than any assailant.

Whatever helps you get through the night. Nights can be long for anxiety sufferers.

I used to always need a light on but I decided to stop doing that to see if it would help my sleeping problems any. (Lights keep your body awake.) It was kinda scary at first but I got used to it pretty fast. Another thing I started doing is playing music while I sleep, I think that helped a bit. I keep the volume real low, almost inaudible. Usually ambient stuff like Brian Eno.
