My daugther is 3 years old and she has never liked to sleep alone or be alone, so much so that we still have to sit with her at bed time for her to go
to sleep which can sometimes take a couple of hours. I never really suspected anything abnormal but recently I am beginning to change my mind. A few
weeks ago in the day time I was playing with her at home when she suddenly stopped and grabbed me and pointed down the hall and said scarry. I look
and there's nothing there so I said its not scarry just brushing it off as a childs imagination.Anyway she grips me tighter and still with her finger
pointing down the hall she repeats the word scarry, I take another look and see nothing out of the ordinary and brush it off as just a childs over
active imagination. Anyway around this time she has started waking up in the night and screaming for maybe 30 minutes and when you try to calm her
down it is almost like she is looking through you and that you are not there. It is impossible to calm her.
Anyway putting her to bed tonight and the penny finally dropped. It took an hour tonight and in the end I was laying on her bed with her to try and
get her off to sleep but she is just being playful and figety and refusing to go to sleep. She pointed to the celing in the room a couple of times and
said dark, it was dusk but not particularly dark. Then whilst playing in her bed she suddenly froze, pointed to the celing and said scarry, she then
rolled in to me and covered her eyes and grabbed onto me. There was absolutly nothing on the celing, no shaddows no nothing, just a light fitting. Now
I am worried because I am starting to think what if she is seeing something that is scarring her? What can I do? How can I stop it?
