  • have you tried having a warm bath, drink of warm milk or horlicks?

    maybe take a notebook and write down your worries to look at the next day.

  • This brings it all back to me as well.

    One piece of good advice my husband gave to me was (even if I couldn't sleep, just relax, don't worry about not being able to sleep). I would hear him snoring away in seconds. This went on for some time, but gradually I found I would sleep, maybe only a nap, but it was something at least. Gradually it got better.

    I know it's easy to say don't worry, but when this spirals it is not easy.

    You will get there. xx

  • Hi Am,

    The best way to beat anxiety is not get into a fight with it, or try to run away from it. If you do either of these things you are perpetuating what anxiety is a fight/flight reaction, observe the sensations in as detatched a way as possible, whilst relaxing as much as possible.

    I send my anxiety loving thoughts, I know it sounds wierd, but what is the opposite of anxiety, fear, disolve it will loving kindness, and here's a link to how to find that in yourself.

    You could try some relaxation cd's to get you to relax whilst in bed as well, I use them and they do help.

    As henige says.

    Anything that helps you relax, slow down, and not react to these feelings.

    wishing you well

    Bxxxx
