    Hi Marie I’m so sorry you suffer this too. I get anxiety in the day a lot but the night times are truly terrifying. It gets so bad I literally go into a cold sweat and shiver with fear.

    I have found the only way to cope is to keep telling myself over and over it’s just my hormones and it’ll pass. I also try to distract my brain and thoughts by thinking of positive things I love. For example I work through the alphabet and think up my favourite animals/sports/things for each letter (A is for Aerobics, B is for Bear, C is for Cat etc). I know it sounds odd but distracting myself  that way eventually calms me down.

    I hope u find relief soon as I do know how frightening it can be x
