Hi

Posted , 5 users are following.

I've had anxiety for quite some time (since I was a kid). I get the ocational anxiety attack from time to time, but when it's worst is during the night. I have a very hard time falling asleep. It's 2:04 am right now and spent about 3 hours, from 9:30 to about 12:00 trying to sleep. Eventually, I started feeling like I was having an anxiety attack, so I take the last pill of Xanax I have in hopes it helps. I't didn't, and I began to cry for about 2 hours. I feel better now, but it's nothing new (2 hours of crying is, though) Ever since middle school I've felt this way. It wasn't until my Jr year of high school that I went to see a doctor. It's the second day of my senior year, and it's already starting. It usually happens once or more a week.

    Hey There Someguy . . . what other medications are you currently taking? I know insomina really sucks and I have myself waking up earlier and earlier. Have you tried talk therapy? I would continue to speak with your doctor until you find the right medication for you.

    ?I know it's tough but posting here is a big step. We are all in the same boat and can truly relate to your story.

    ?Plus, starting school especially as a senior can cause anxiety as well. Do you have a support system at home? Once in awhile I tried to talk with friends to get out the angst I'm feeling. It does help sometimes.

    ?Honey, I wish you nothing but the best of luck to you. Please keep posting. We are all here for you in the virual world. Take care.

    This happens to me every night. Two things help....getting something light to eat, or drinking from the cup of chamomile tea by my bed.
