Ever since I was six years old (i think), before I go to bed I always feel like I have to check the sheets on the bed to make sure that if there were to be an emergency, I can get out of them easily. I specifically remember my parents coming into my bedroom at night to tuck me in, and then I would start freaking out because all of these thoughts go through my head of my not being able to get out of them. Usually when I get these thoughts, I will get really sweaty and shakey and breathing hard. My heart usually races as well. I was wondering if anyone on here knew why that is. Please help me.
