My weeeek


So far this week has been a lot better than last week. My anxiety and depression is under control EXCEPT when I wake up.

In the morning I wake up with a sense of dread, like a black cloud hovering over me. I quickly try to shake it off and it does tend to go away after I leave my home, but it has been happening for the last 3 days now it’s really WEIRD!

Anyone experience sadness or dread for a short amount of time in the morning?

I haven’t had dread, but I have had anxiety attacks as soon as I wake up.

Hmm I wonder if it’s caused by like thoughts when we are sleeping?

Are you on antidepressants

Or maybe dreams that trigger it?

I do every morning. It’s been this way for months for me. By evening time I’m feeling better, even chipper at times. It’s getting to where I dread going to sleep because I know I’ll wake up feeling horrible.

Wow all the way to the evening? Mine last for less than hour.

That’s how I was last week when I was having anxiety allllll dayyyyy. It’s been manageable this week.
