Sometimes it’s just too quiet and, when alone, it’s easy to psych yourself out.

Yes, I’ve done this more than once. No, I didn’t do it every night. Thank goodness! I do have some obsessive-compulsive tendencies but I’m not really OCD because I can usually catch myself and work out of it. But once I start the wonder if there’s something in the shadows, I can’t sleep until I’ve checked ever hidden inch of my 1000 square-foot apartment.

Even under the bed.
