Dreading mornings

The moment I open my eyes my heart starts racing and I am overwhelmed with the anxiety and dread like something awful has happened/will happen. My hands and legs start to tingle and it is so exhausting and difficult and happens every single day. Will it ever go away

I have wondered that many days and this is one of them. I wish there was an off switch a permanent one, I pray for it daily. Some days more than others. I understood the dread and anxiety in the morning. Mornings are not my favorite. I hope relief is in the making. There would be alot of happy people.

Except for praying what else do you do to try to stop it from happening?

I force myself to get out of bed and just do anything to get distracted but sometimes it is hard

Yes it is hard but that's because your mind is making it hard for you. You have Physical energy to do things, maybe if you do things that you have to focus on or do something you haven't did before that you might really enjoy you might get your head to start thinking differently, get it out of the negative thinking.

On days that it's not raining I can sit outside at the table under the umbrella and watch things going on. I can take my little dog for longer walks. And now I can log on and text people who understands. Which is really good.

Same here everyday, what are you fearful of

I am so fearful of getting sick. Me or my kids. Terrified, in a very unhealthy way. I’m even terrified of getting headaches or minor colds. It’s so hard because these are things that happen all the time, getting a cold or headache or sore throat or nausea. These small things terrify me and I get full panic attacks

I worry about what’s harmful to the world! I know that God will have to take care of it but I’m a control freak and feel hopeless!

I get this too, especially on mornings that are cold and overcast, it really messes with my well being. I get a hot coffee, cream etc, turn on my heat pad and make myself nice and warm. I journal, read or listen to something uplifting about Christ because He is the source of my life energy. I sometimes call a friend or text a friend. If I’m still feeling yucky I do laundry and clean the house, telling myself that later on today I know I’ll feel better when the clouds part. I think about something I can look forward to as well, an event coming up or even a nice day at the pool I am planning on doing when it’s hot. Basically I struggle with this very much as well!

It’s so nice to find someone who can completely understand what it’s like! I haven’t started journaling yet but it is something I want to give a try.
