Waking up exhausted

Anyone else get sent into panic when they wake up exhausted??

It feels SO tricky and terrifying. It feels like you can barely get up to take care of yourself and face the day. It doesn't feel like a normal exhaustion and I started to think there must be something wrong with me. Two days ago I had to go somewhere and I forced myself up cuz that's what my therapist told me to do is not avoid stuff just because of my symtpoms and I did that but my body was like - NOOOO. It felt like I couldn't even start driving!

  • I know exactly what you are talking about! I wake up feeling like this a lot. It's like I wake up having heart palpitations and feeling like a complete slug. I usually have a cup of tea and try to calmly talk myself out of the panic attack. It definitely takes trying, ya have to force yourself to feel better so you can do the things you have to do in your day. Yoga helps me in the mornings, or some real simple stretches. I hope you can find something positive that will help you in the morning! I wish you luck ☺

  • Also, if you drink coffee in the mornings, you might want to switch to decaf. That's what I had to do. The caffeine was giving me bad anxiety. Hope that might help 👍

  • I feel the exact same way. I spent the entire weekend in my bed, but it was still hard for me to get up and go to work today (Monday). I just wanted to stay in my bed. I always feel like I haven't slept for days. I just don't want to face the world. I also barely sleep so that could be another added factor.

  • I actually sleep but feels like I never did. I know how u feel it's horrible. But there def is a way our.
