(First of all - sorry - I posted this before but mistakenly 'locked' it and can't unlock the post so others can see it? What does it mean when a post can only be seen by someone in 'this group'? What does 'this group' mean - this blog, or the Anxiety UK forum as a whole? I'm confused!)
Virtually every morning when I wake, the churning anxiety descends on me, weighing me down. I wake fearfully, wondering if this morning will be different but no, it rarely is. It's not often about anything in particular though I DO have anxieties I carry around constantly as well. I feel disappointed that I can't look forward to the day and that I've woken up and sometimes try to go back to sleep but I never can, so I just have to get up and get on with the day however bad I feel. Sometimes it eases but often it stays and sometimes gets worse. I then find I am thinking about bedtime and the peace of sleep, only to wake again in the morning with the anxiety - churning, palpitations, vague nausea, irritability etc - again and again.
Does anyone else relate to this and if so, how do you deal with it?
