Anyone else find it a chore to like relax? :/

Like wanting to get some good sleep & your anxiety kicks in?

when I want to sleep , I always get fidgety ..or get these sensations , like for example..I got this anxious sensation , that I would get in my stomach , in my upper back ..or maybe in my stomach & thighs ..or I get flustered . I absolutely hate it. Then , sometimes legs feel like jello off & on ..when I go about my errands :/ this is anxiety ? ugh or I feel blah if I haven't eaten ..I know I've had this anxiety for a while thus far but if anyone feels like this & knows how to deal ..let me/& everyone else know lol :))))

I can so relate. I get every sensation you described and unfortunately I don't know how to rid myself of this long term although I have a few quick fixes that work for me. Camomile tea, warm baths, music and meditation help. The effects wear of quite quickly though. I find though because I have such an anxious mind and the majority of the time I feel so stressed and tense the rare times I feel relaxed my mind mistakes this for being abnormal and I start to feel strange bringing in my anxiety again. Does that even make sense!! I hate, hate, hate anxiety!

I agree 😔 hate it too lol. It's annoying because ya wanna relax & you're anxious 24/7 it seems. But I tried chamomile ...may have to do the meditation thing


I fully understand how you lot feel.. I have extreme anexity. It renders me unable to sleep till 8-9am, where I'm simply too tired to give a fuck. I also Have vision problems, sudden blurs that pressure on my head and I feel like my brain is being electric shocked by millions of Small volts. I also have a symptom that makes me believe that these symptoms indicate some deadly disease. I also have extreme panic attacks and motivation issues. It is so bad that I can't bring myself to the shower alot of the time. I generally keep clean but I find it hard to do anything unless I get paid then I go out. I also have alot of pain and hallucinations due to it. The only thing that helps me sleep is a small spliff of natural weed at night and it sends me off no problem. I'm not telling anyone to take it but that's my sleep resolve. It doesn't mean that I take loads. These are just a few of my symptoms. My advice is to listen to the music channel CYM or CMA (it's a chill/liquid drum and bass channel and it's very relaxing) it stands for calm your mind or calm my mind but I call it calming my anxiety :) - Alex from UK
