Hello, everyone. Ever since my health anxiety started a few months back, I have been struggling. There is always something new that I am afraid of, and I always find some kind of symptoms to back me up. At this point I am on Lexapro, and it definitely helps. However, I still find my self afraid to sleep at times, and this has absolutely destroyed my sleep schedule. I never feel fully rested. I have been sleeping through my classes at college and neglecting the work that I am assigned. Some days getting out of bed feels impossible. I don't feel depressed, but I'm just so tired. I have no motivation anymore. Somewhere along the line in the process of recovering, I fell into a rut. I feel so trapped. I don't know how to move on from this. I don't want to fail my classes and rack up school debt because I can't pass. I don't want to upset my family because I am failing either. My girlfriend has been incredibly patient with me. She tries to push me to be motivated, and sometimes it works. However, I am afraid that she will in time grow frustrated with me and not be able to be by my side. I just want my motivation back. Any advice or guidance would be appreciated.
