    Post Afraid of the light

    We all know that kids go through a phase of being afraid of the dark. My problem is the complete opposite, I'm afraid of the light. I've always been more comfortable in the darkness and can only seem to get my school work done after the sun sets.

    This thing I have with the light is getting progressivly worse, whenever my friend comes into my dorm room, he habitually turns on the overhead light (I have dubbed it the evil light). I freak out when he does this, I practically yell at him to turn it off. Is there a name for this? And what can I do about it?
