    diary-sleeping

    This is my diary. Please check it and correct any mistakes.

    Over the past months, I haven't slept well. I don't know why I has become sensitive to sounds and flash lights from the outside. I'm easily waked up by those distractions. I has also been afraid of sleeping in the darkness. I don't know if it's because I've watched too many horror movies. When I sleep in the darkness, I feel something around me so I sleep with the light on these days. I don't know when I can revert to normal sleeping.
    If I make any mistakes in English, please let me know!

    Maybo, are you sure you wrote that? With "I has" twice?

    See my corrections. Note that flashlight (written as one word) and flashing lights are different things.

    What's the different between "darkness" and "dark"?

    "In the dark" is a set phrase. But "in the darkness" is not wrong though.
