Dear Steve, I am a man and I have lived a good life but right now I am scared. I recently moved into a house directly across the street from a huge cemetery. I have zero neighbors, it's a rural area on a main road that is being developed commercially. Living in Kansas this time of year requires you to heat your house. I keep my thermostat on 75 degrees and almost every night I awaken around 3AM to voices in my kitchen. I would usually start praying because it was already in my mind that I may get visitors from across the street. I finally got the confidence to go investigate. I switched on my lights and spoke in a loud tone: "Leave my house, you dead bastards." The voices halted and laughter erupted. Half scared and angry I went towards my kitchen, spotted 3 men playing cards at my kitchen table. I flung my hammer towards them and ran in the opposite direction. My heart was beating against my rib cage, saying let me out of here. I summoned the confidence to check my kitchen about 5 minutes later, and they were gone, it was very cold in there and I took my cards and went back to bed. Don't think I even winked once, surely did not get any more sleep. What should I do tonight Steve, any suggestions? Living single at 50, I eat mushrooms daily could this be a part of my trouble?
