    I'm awake too. I want to go to sleep, but I don't want to go to bed. It used to be a haven of comfort and security, but now it is the loneliest place on earth.

    I just hate this, because what will happen is I will nod off tomorrow without realising and then wake up to find a chunk of a perfectly good day has been lost.

    We are all individuals, but it is quite likely some of my feelings and emotions overlap with yours, so the least I can do is send you a message of peace and comfort, knowing that you and I plus countless others are silently sharing the same problem.

    Hi Gina,

    I am awake, I think keep your anxiety and plan it for tomorrow. Just think how beautiful the next day would be. You just want to open your eyes and see tomorrow as fresh.

    hi gina. indeed anxiety is such an opportunist, skulking in the dark till ur at you're least guarded. have a look at a modality called eft (emotional freedom technique. it's an excellent means of neutralizing the emotional effects of anxiety. it's easy to learn & self-apply and has no side effects. have a google.

    wishing u all good luck with getting the anxiety on the run.
