Hi there! I feel abit of an old hand at this anxiety malarky. I have suffered for nearly 10 years with GAD, had more therapy than you can shake a stick at. I have a preferred antidepressant Sertraline (through trial and error of other SSRI's) I no longer take any medication (I have a 28 day course of amitriplyine 10 mg for emergencies) and have a wonderful Gestalt therapist who I have seen for 2 years now.
I just want to write about over sleeping and anxiety as many of the posts seem to be about Insomnia! I sleep about 12 hours a night and if I am very anxious and / depressed I can sleep up to 15 hours!! I love my bed, it is safe and warm. I never wake early and the only problem I get is falling asleep, once asleep I can sleep for agggess! Doctors automatically think because I sleep so much I can't possible be depressed! So untrue!
I was just wondering if anyone else's anxiety had a similar effect?
