There are a lot of things out there to be scared
about, especially while you are sleeping. It is
true that millions of people have their home
broken into during the night while they are
sleeping. It’s a scary thought, but one that is
Sometimes these break-ins lead to the person being
attacked, and even killed on occasion. It is
events like this that cause some to not be able to
rest very well at night.
Clearly, there are things to fear. Falling off of
a cliff, getting into a car accident, or even
drowning while you are swimming are things that
can occur. If you are not taking the proper
precautions then you risk one of these things
become big an eventuality. This is why you have to
be smart and do things that protect yourself.
The problem with fear is that many times it will
take a person in directions that become
nonsensical. They allow their fear to overwhelm
them to the point that they start to believe the
craziest events are possible.
Take this for example. Some question whether a rat
will attack a human being in the neck. It is true
that a rat will bite a person. There have been
documented proof that some people, especially
while they were asleep, awoke to find a rat
nibbling at their foot, hand, and even at their
face. When there are several rats present the
likelihood of this occurring becomes greater, as
the numbers seem to embolden them to be more gaudy
about the raid on the person. There have been
instances where a group of rats attacked a person
so severely that the person nearly bled to death.
So, this is something that you would have to fear
if you lived in an area where rats are known to
However, even though you have that possibility of
this occurring, this does not mean that you need
to let your fear be rampant. While a rat may
attack you, even if you are awake, the thought of
it going directly after your neck is a little
far-fetched. The last anyone knew a rat was not
like a vampire, looking to dig at your neck to
suck out your blood. This is more of a myth than
What the rat is often looking for our locations
that enable it to get to a food source that it
finds unavoidable. While some have been bitten
repeatedly in the face area, it is usually the
appendages that are the prime target of rats. This
is because they give the rat the easiest access.
Your neck is often blocked by clothing and by the
structure of your body. This makes it much more
difficult for the rat to get to, and so it would
make better sense for it to look in other areas of
Before you get to crazy with this fear, keep in
mind that rat attacks are fairly small in number.
So no need to stay awake tonight.
