Anyone have sleep problems from anxiety

I feel tired then I go to bed can't always sleep if I do I wake up anxious and it's always the worst feeling waking up alone with the anxiety thoughts I found comfort in chamomile tea and deep breathing

Hello :-)

Only just seen this post

I am not the best sleeper , I go to bed very late as late as 12 or even 1 but I have more chance of sleeping through the night then

Even when there are others in the house and you wake up anxious it still feels like you are on your own with it , I can get tempted to wake the hubby but then not sure what he would or could do or how happy he would be , he has enough all day never mind me waking hi in the night so I do lay there with all my fears feeling lonely

Anxiety is a pain in the you know what !

Take Care x

Yes I have heard of it because they say I have that to

I am wondering the pain I get if it has been a flare up , it has crossed my mind

They say not to eat things with seeds as well as they can get stuck in the pockets

O you lay in bed and enjoy why not :-D

The sun seems to have gone again even though warm here , but not sure where the Summer is :-) x

I think we all are getting anxious when people come near us , this is something I feel will be going on a while

I am getting prepared with face masks , hand gel you name it because it may have gone quite now but I can foresee that it won't stop that way and I am not going through all what happened last time not been able to get anything because people went mad !

You have to let go I think with this house thing

I have dreadful neighbours and yes I am hoping to move but sometimes when I watch programs on TV it does make me feel grateful I have a roof over my head , some out there have nothing :-(

Glad you are up and moving , I am sure you will keep busy :-) x

Good morning did you sleep ok I got to sleep late was afraid to close eyes as I keep seeing images of black Beatle, I had a laugh at my TV comedy but later saw walking across room a blackie pixie had spotted it I got a mug over it before he got it I couldn't have slept with him knowing he had a Beatle in his belly 🐜☹️I have to slide it on some thin card a bit later mam wants to see it my anxiety is coming back about been here last week mam had me helping her move her bed and stuff out her room as a giant spider was in her bedroom we never found it why are we so afraid of little creatures, I remember when had rats dying I'd come in and one day I counted about 8o big flies on window they were dosile as they had come from magnet I remember magnets coming through the tile grout the flies got in the air vents then laid the magnet that eat the dead rat the horrific rat smell would go after few days of the flies emerging all this Beatle stuff is bringing my memories of this house of horrors back I am in edge every room I go in have to check for beatle, I need to harden up maby that's why this is happening I ran away last time, how is your migraine I'm looking forward to a nice Sunday dinner tea at mam's we had gearge foreman b b q yesterday outside under the big umbererlla I don't know what I'll do when mam dies it be just me and pixie and the George foreman grill we did garlic bread on it too lol hope you have a good day x

Hello :-)

Mrs Health Anxiety here

I slept ok thank you I was worn out with this migraine , they always leave me feeling like this plus worried myself tired over this pain in my stomach

Sorry you did not sleep so well , all those thoughts on your mind will have kept you awake

I don't think you need to harden up more like try and deal with the situation and remember they cannot harm you unpleasant but cannot cause you harm

Sounds though with the BBQ and dinner with your Mum you have had a nice weekend and I think it might be a nice day weather wise today to :-)

Try not to think to far ahead ( even though I had to chuckle with your thought of it will be you and your George Foreman grill ) but live and enjoy today as the saying goes we only have today tomorrow is a mystery and you have today to enjoy a lovely Sunday dinner with your Mum :-) x

Hi yes there's a saying I like think it goes like yesterday is history tomorrow a mistery and the present is a gift well I got the Beatle saved and bottom garden mam came with fly killer and soda I sent mad I saved it and put it back with nature she came to kill it well I have put some soda and icing sugar in the loft I know it needs sorting but if there breeding up there it's the eggs need destroying to stop the cycle I don't know where they are they lead a horrible existence up there no food and die anyway but I'm not sure how there's some that are big maby coming in from outside my ex brother in law down the tenfort said he keeps seeing odd one on carpet that's how mine started and I read ground Beatles don't fly but do get about fast I feel quite downcast I spoke to mam's nebour she said if survey shows work needing on her house the building society will just hold some money back until jobs get done so looks like at least I'll have osure once that sale goes through and maby my house will look totally different with a complete make over and will help to sell if in the future I need to I'm at mam's now and trying to De clutter garden the house is big and I think it attracts more clutter and hording I'm lacking in storage space both my house and garden but maby that's a good think my dad had stuff from about 55 years ago he never through anything out just the food waiste he even kept food cardboard covers and anything he though may come in handy I do tent to not like waiste and it's hard throwing nice re useable dish type things away that can be used for baking but end up with cuboatd full lol hope you have a peaceful day x
