I need your guys help not sure if I'm being ridiculous or not we live in a 4 in a block type flat we're upstairs and I'm terrified of being broken into I'm fine during the day but as soon as it's dark I shake like a leaf ! I didn't get to sleep last night till 1:30 am as I kept hearing little noises outside and I just can't sleep! We have 2 lock on the front door and an internal lock (can only be locked/unlocked from inside) is there anything else I could do to make our flat more secure? I've never been this bad but the area we live isn't great (lots of drug addicts and break ins lately) ! Thanks for helping I need to sleep again!

Anyone sad?

What you're feeling isn't quite right, it sounds to me that you're extra anxious which is a self perpetual cycle where you're anxious in case you hear a noise and when you do hear a noise your mind tells you that you're right to be so anxious because you heard a noise.

You've got a door lock that can only be opened from the inside.

I would suggest seeing your gp about your anxiety in the first instance. You say "we" live, I'd it just you and children or you and your partner?

So sorry you feel this badly xx
