I haven't been sleeping enough for the past week or so. I've been feeling really off. I feel super sleepy and like something bad will happen to me. I feel like I'm going crazy! Is anyone else dealing with this?
Hi Katie it probably is because your not sleeping. Sleep is very important we all need rest to feel well I hope u can try and find a way to get the rest u desire have u tried drinking chamomile tea?
Yes I have but not for a while. I'm going to soak in a chamomile Epsom salt bath tonight.
OK I hope that does the trick so u can get some rest best of luck dear.
ive been dealing with this for about the past week, Typically I feel extra bad anxiety wise in the winter months and ive been at a new job since September. Really struggling being there all day and dealing with these terrible thoughts and all the symptoms that go along with it.........frustrated.
Can you message me?
Me too you are not alone! I work for Kaiser and have to try to stay at work everyday. It's a struggle and I find myself terrified worried I'll die or collapse and pay attention to every little dizzy spell or weakness wondering if it means somethings wrong. It's sad. I really wish I didn't worry so much
This is the same type I have. Passing out, dying, seeing white, going blind, not being able to breathe .. Really crazy and annoying thoughts that really affect my day to day life
Yeah it sucks...mine right now is meningitis or aneurysms....because I feeltired weak and sleepy no matter how much rest i get
I just started a new job and I found it a struggle too, I am not used to be around loads of people all day and everyday. I try to distract myself by reciting a poem, lyrics from a song, passage from the bible or saying affirmation. I looking fro a SAD light
The lack of sleep definitely doesn't help. When I don't get enough sleep my anxiety kicks in full gear. I will start to experience the same thing you do and then begin to have panic attacks.
What sort of tiredness do you feel? Like you haven't slept enough or does it feel like it's coming from the anxiety Symptoms?
Have tried Kalms tablets they are herbal tablets for anxiety and help promote sleep
I have the same problem. I'm taking Atarax 25mg just to calm myself and have a sleep. But I know, Atarax will not cure the anxiety itself. It will just relieve the symptoms.
I'm only new to this site, and I'm so glad I found it. It's very comforting knowing that their is so much support on hear.
My answer to your question...well what my doctor actually told me yesterday, as I told her the same thing...I am CONSTANTLY tired she told me, someone with anxiety-Thier body is like it's running a marathon 24/7. And today, it makes sense to me. Monday I had a horrible day...I literally was in a panic from 10am until 4pm when I then decided I was falling an ambulance...! So I arrived at the ED, finally i began to settle at around 5-5:30pm. So for 7 & 1/2 hours my body fought & fought...longest panic attack I've ever had. When i was released at about 9pm...i was exhausted...I thought I'd go straight home & go to bed, but I was awake until about 3am. Tuesday, I was a walking zombie...but I had a "anxiety" free day (very rare for me) Wednesday, another shitty day...where I had a long panic attack lasting hours & then coming back last night. Today...in screwed...dark circles under my eyes, all I feel like today is closing my eyes and getting a good sleep, but...I can't. As my dr explained, even though I may not be experiencing a panic attack, I'm still anxious their for its not allowing me to sleep. I researched "fatigue" today...and everything is says...I'm experiencing. So, much like yourself & all of the other anxiety sufferers...we waste sooooooo much energy concentrating on our "illness" no wonder we are tired. Even if we sleep, it's not making a difference as we are emotionally drained. I have suffered anxiety for 17 years, I'm 32 now. It's a vicious cycle & a horrible one at that. As we all know (hard to process though) anxiety will not kill us...its hurts us emotionally & takes away time from our family & friends...but it cannot harm us. We are the ones that allow "it" to harm us & take away our real selves...I guess we are our own punishment? Anyways...I'm here if you wanna chat Hun, but please no you certainly are not alone, and what you feel, we all feel it as well. Stay strong & know...you will be ok xxx
