I cannot stand without light; not even for a moment. This is a childhood problem, but me and my family thought that this will pass off as I grow up. But it never happened so. Whenever, there is a loadshedding, I start howling in fear till someone comes with a light, even when someone arrives, I dread something sinister about the person in the grimness of the shade. If it is getting too cloudy during rainy days, I get scared that something unfortunate is going to take place, or may be a devilish power with engulf the earth and I start crying; then the tube lights in my house need to be switched off. Now this often creates a problem in my workplace too. When we have to do night shifts, usually the lights are switched off after a certain time, only the light above your work place remains on, these are autocontrolled lights guided by human presence. But this shadowy atmosphere is too scary. The night guard has often caught me screaming for help; I request them not to report it to the higher management, but this cannot go on. I need to find a solution for an irrational fear. What can I do? Are there any general remedies which I can imply without medicines?
