Hi everyone. Can anyone else relate?

It's 4am here, and I need some advice. Does anybody else's anxiety make them really on edge? Make them worry when there's nothing there etc? Obviously that's what anxiety is, but I started freaking out about half an hour ago because I was scared I'd start hallucinating despite the fact I've never experienced hallucinations before. Is this normal?

I've had this happen before just try to focus on something else or maybe try to get some rest.


It's about to be 5am here and I'm worrying because I have to be up for work in 2 and half hours but I cannot sleep. If you've never had hallucinations then there wouldn't really be any reasons why you'd start having them all of a sudden, anxiety makes us think up irrational thoughts!


What kind of hallucinations are you experiencing?


Yes it is.. Part of anxiety is to worry about things that we wouldn't normally worry about. One tactic I use for the night time terrors (obsessive worrying) is to tell myself at I'll worry about it tomorrow and that I need sleep right now.. It works for me, might be worth a shot. Hope you can get a hold of it. It's not easy I know.


I have heart palpations and then I start to get shaky. I have been waking up every couple of hours feeling panicky which leads to my mind racing and scary thoughts pop in my head. I will be lying next to my boyfriend when suddenly I'm watching him sleep in awe of my love for him, suddenly my mind starts thinking of what if I just elbowed him and shocked him while sleeping??? Than I get really sad and think I'm going crazy. Anyone else experiencing this?


What did you think you saw? I know this isn't a good idea for sleep , but for us worrying type, turn the tv on something funny or happy and focus on that. It will help take your mind off stuff. ❤️lynl
