Scared to be alone

I spent the majority of my childhood alone. Happy with my own company and that was enough. Now I’ve been with my husband for around 13 years (married 9 years) we have a daughter. Why am I so scared and uncomfortable at the thought of being alone. Yes he hurt me and I’m insecure, but I’ve always liked having some quiet time to myself and having me time. Now it just terrifies me and I truly feel alone.

Hey, I relate to this very much...I am currently suffering panic attacks when anyone leaves the house without me and I have to be alone....I like u , spent my childhood often alone, I had a few frinds who were much younger than me, apart from that, nothing...I wonder if we still have memories from then that still affect us today? I have an ex partner I stay friends with and my son but I still feel alone...Do u try and occupy yourself with a hobby etc ? I was the same, I used to love being by myself for a while and doing the things I enjoy but I cant even concentrate on anything now but the horrible feelings...Youre not alone in this..Im here, if u want to chat...:) x

I’m terrified of being alone too. It’s one of my daily struggles. I just hope things get better it’s so confusing sometimes
