Ever Been the Victim of a Break In?

It's a scary scenerio. It really makes you become more aware of things. Like making sure your doors and windows are locked at night. I remember one night when I was very young, still living at home. My mom was playing on the computer and I was laying down watching and trying to go to sleep. Then I saw something at the window. (it was in my room, we lived in a small place) lol. I told my mom that I saw it, and of course she didn't believe me. Then I saw something at the other window, and said something again to her and she still didn't believe me. She said it was probably just leaves falling from the trees. But I knew it was a hand. But I began to believe her and went to sleep. That night I was woke up by the scary reality of a man laying on top of me. I was fully clothed and he had on boxers. But I jumped up and he flew back and jumped out of the window head first! I was so scared, that not a sound came out of me. I ran to my mom and step-dad's room and got in bed with them and told them that someone had been in my room. My step-dad got up to check everything out and I eventually went back to sleep. The next morning they saw the shoe prints in our driveway and found a man's t-shirt hanging off the back of the computer chair. At the time, i was so young that I didn't say anything about the man being on top of me. I'm not sure why, but I guess I just figured that since nothing had actually happened, that it wasn't necessary. Ever since that night, and up until recently, I used to have to check behind the curtain in the bathroom before entering it, and I had to cover all my windows and sometimes, I even used to bury myself with stuffed animals before I could sleep!
