Hi All. First off thank you so much for the positive support you've shown in your responses.
My anxiety and overall feeling of dread seem to be at it's worse in the early morning hours. I'll wake up early , 6:30am on a Saturday, even earlier on a weekday, with a racing heart, sweating and horrible thoughts. My thoughts center around something going wrong with my health, something going wrong with my house or car and not having enough money to fix it. One of my worst thoughts is not having enough money to retire. And Losing my insurance, I'm on Obamacare so who knows what will happen with that. I'm 52 so this fear is real. Much of it is my fault, through the years I never thought about this stuff and now it's here, just a looming catastrophe in front of me. This is only a sample of the morning negative thoughts I have. Every morning this is what I go through and it's not until noon or later that I start to feel better. I see a phychiatrist and I'm prescribed Effexor and Xanax XR. Does anyone else experience this morning anxiety. Love to hear your thoughts. Thank you.
