I've seen a lot of discussions about people having high anxiety levels from the minute they wake up, but that's not the case for me. My anxiety has decreased to very low levels in general, however on the occasion that I have to wake up extra early and go somewhere (if I have an earlier shift at work, for example), once I get to where I'm going, I seem to be prone to very high levels of anxiety.
My anxiety problems started when I was at college, and funnily enough I would have to get up very early (for me, at least) to get a train and a bus there. If it was a particularly anxious journey, it would get much easier throughtout the day (and still is the case when it happens now)
To clarify, when I wake up - even when I'm aware that I need to go somewhere - and get ready, I'm never anxious, nor am I once I've started making my way there. It's once I'm there I might have an anxiety attack or at least be close to one.
Does anybody know anything about this?
Additionally, my body (and mind, I guess) seems to prefer going to bed around 3am, and waking up around 11am. My old job allowed me to do this most nights because I never started any earlier than 10am. However I have a new job that I start in a week which has resulted in significantly earlier mornings.
Could it be possible that my body doesn't like those times of day?
I seem to dislike mornings when it's still dark, too. For example, during winter, when the sun rises a lot later, I seem to hate leaving the house before the sky brightens up. I know there are disorders that relate to times of year and stuff, but I don't think the seasonal changes make an awful lot of difference, it's more about the time of day.
Sorry for the essay but if anyone has taken the time to read it and maybe has an idea of what the hell is wrong with me, I'd sincerely appreciate some advice!
