Hi everyone this is my first time posting, I've read a lot on here which is helping me cope with anxiety. I'm 19 and I recently developed anxiety while at my first year of uni. Since being home I am constantly on edge, especially at night time. I am scared to go to sleep and try to keep myself awake as long as possible- I have irrational fears that something will happen to me if I go to sleep which is really getting me down, before getting anxiety I was so laid back about everything now I'm constantly on edge and feel like I'm not the same person which really makes me sad. I just want this constant feeling to go away! Ive started beta blockers as my heart rate was very high, I also started escitalopram but they were making me feel really unwell. I sometimes wake up feeling like I've forgotten to take a breath in the middle of the night, I feel like I'm having mini panic attacks during the night which makes me worry more about going to sleep- it's a vicious circle!. Does anyone else suffer from this constant worry about going to sleep?
