Intermittent sleep, but I felt alright. Then, the shakes and the apprehension. Why?

Each day I feel like I'm making progress, but the mornings can still be an ordeal. I've gone on about this before, but I've recently found these waking hours so draining. I've had an on/off nights sleep, so that's probably not helping. I hate those nights when you wake every hour, I'd rather have 3 or 4 hours straight sleep.

As the days progress I feel more like my old self, but then the next day starts and I feel like I'm almost starting again rather than just picking up from where the last day ended.

This is only temporary. I didn't feel like this a few days ago, so I'm not going to let this define me now. Its just a phase.

All will be well, all will be well, and all manner of things will be well.

I feel lke this in the mornings and also wake a few times at night, its so difficult not to churn ones mind over and over, I try to put other things in my mind but its not easy. The day before I decide all the things I'm going to do or places to visit and then when morning comes it all goes haywire and I feel fearful. The only answer is to go through and let it pass by, I try to go ahead no matter what, I know the feelings are generated by me, no easy to put aside. I ask myself, 'what can happen and does it matter' wish I was a more don't care person, but thats our trouble we are too sensitive and self aware. Lets hope the day will improve for you and me and all the other folk out there. . Thinking of you with hugs. cotonroad ,


Thank you so much.

Being self aware is such a problem. Try to focus on the positive. I like your idea of making plans for the following day.

Hope you're well.


Feel just the same!! We are not alone, thankfully!
