Hey gurl this is my third day of my period and I have had insomnia, my head is like gonna explode and my anxiety and dizziness is crazy . The insomnia is what drives me crazy. I hope you feel better. My period heightens my symptoms bad.

Hi

Mornings can be so bad for me too, I often wake totally sweating , so anxious and afraid ..it’s awful. It does subside as the morning goes by, I’m sorry you woke feeling like this. Sometimes I distract by putting on some meditation from you tube, by Jason Stephenson or Michael sealey, they do so many different ones, my mind wanders as I listen to them, I keep bringing it back. It helps...

I hope your feeling a little better now.

Hello Cwoods

I used to find this happening at the time of the month I think it can be when the hormones are going up and down , it is quite frightening but passes and is nothing sinister

I often wake with a dry throat which I think can be several things

It can be that unbeknown to us we are anxious in our sleep so wake with a dry throat just like when our throat goes dry when we are awake , we could have slept with our mouth open and I know you said you drank tea before bed this can sometimes cause a dry throat if we have drank it to close to going to bed

I hope you are feeling a lot better than you were :-)

Take Care x

Hello Cwoods :-)

I know exactly what you mean and when it is night time it always feels worse as well , I have been there and still get times when I wake with weird and wonderful things happening

I am glad you managed to calm down and sure it will have been nothing more than just as we say one of those things

If you need to chat you know where we are :-) x

Good for you Cwoods :-)

That is showing anxiety who is in charge and you are getting on with your day :-)

Maybe tonight it will cross your mind but try and distract yourself , listening to calming music before bed or maybe reading something

Before when I have been afraid I don't mind saying I have left a little night light on just till I have got my confidence back again but it has worked :-)

Keep in touch :-) x

Usually 2 weeks before my period starts hard. It's playing havoc with your hormones. On a better note your change of life will be easier.

I had a bad bout with anxiety a while back and finally went to the doctor. When I told him that I quit smoking he told me if he had know that he would've never have even seen me. I said "Why not?" He said because it was withdrawal symptoms from quitting smoking. He said "Go home & don't come back. I did go home and it went away when I started smoking again....oh well.
