My house got broken into about 6 months ago - on Christmas Eve while I we were at my in-law's for dinner. I used to be cool here alone anytime, but I hate being alone at night. My husband works nights, and I know he'd switch to days - dealing with shitty people and a cut in pay - if I let on just how much I hate being here alone and how tense/nervous/terrified I get. I really don't want to do that to him, though. Coming home to the house ransacked, my stuff thrown everywhere, my beat-up lab, and so much stuff missing was probably one of the worst experiences of my life. I felt so incredibly violated and unsafe in my own house. I know in my head that at this point they probably won't come back, but still worry that they might. They dug out several guns and left them. I keep worrying they'll be talking to their friends and they'll mention the guns, and their friends will tell them what a dumbass they are for leaving them. They probably left ~5k worth of guns. We have a safe now, though, and lots more guns. After the break-in, I started shooting, got a CCW, go to the range, and do IDPA / IPSC. I always have a gun with me in the house when I'm alone, and have a shotty and an AR next to my bed as well as a handgun on each nightstand. I have a lab that was at home during the break-in, we also got an alarm system. The wiring was already there, but we didn't have it monitored. It helps, but the only sensors are on doors. We also got a Great Pyrenees. He's only about half grown, but already really protective. Any suggestions about what I can do to not be so stressed out about being at home alone?
