Anxiety Support

Sleep?

So I have had a pretty good month without having bad anxiety... Just little things that I can get through unless I fixate on them... But today it hit me. I was fine all day... As soon as I start driving home it starts. Now, here's my question... Could this happen do to lack of sleep? I haven't slept well the past two nights... And may be that contributes to my anxiety? Like a trigger? I mean I just wanted to run to the hospital, because I just didn't feel right... I ended up just crying on my boyfriends shoulder and saying how I just wanted to be normal.... I felt a little better afterwards, like crying was a release or something... But I go to lay down and my brain starts playing every worse case scenario, since my left arm is hurting again, but hasn't hurt in a month.. It's just throwing everything at me.. I believe in God and His power, so I was praying, because that is calming for me, and the thoughts try to get in there too... I just don't know why my brain does this to me.

So, lack of sleep triggers attacks?

Me too, lack of sleep makes my anxiety worse. But your body will decide when it really needs to sleep, and you will catch up. Put it down to a blip and look forward to tomorrow
