Are you afraid of the dark?

Posted:
WATERLOO (KWWL) -

If you have trouble sleeping, you might be suffering from a typical childhood fear. A small, pilot study from Canada suggests some insomniacs are actually afraid of the dark.

Nearly half of study participants who said they had trouble sleeping were also more prone to fears of the dark.

Researchers say that while more study is needed, this may mean a lot of people have an active and untreated phobia.
