my Anxiety is Higher in the Mornings and at Night

Posted , 6 users are following.

Does anyone have the same problem as I do. I feel my anxiety kicks in first thing in the morning and then after dark in the evenings. I haven't had any form of anxiety until just recently that I'm aware of. I have been on my meds for going on a month. I know it does take some time and I know When I usually post here I seem to repeat my self of why I'm feeling.

    Are you less distracted in the morning and nights? It might be you start thinking about it and it makes you think more. If your days are busy you have less time to focus on anxiety doing the day.

    Absolutely! I think it may have something to do with adrenaline. I have the same problem. Once your stress levels even out you will experience less anxiety in the mornings. When we worry it screws up our levels

    Hope this helps!

    Anxiety kicks in more when your mind has little distractions so people tend to struggle more at night. Panic disorder which sounds more of what you described makes u scared of the dark.

    You can beat it without meds, i did it and i was told that i was very obssevive. Meaning its harder for people who can't stop thinking about it.

    Most people beat this condition and if you focus on this you will stop in soon. You had control before, you will soon. Its important to keep your routine because if your doing to many changes that it self will remind you more.

    To sleep better make your body tired.

    Work out. Its ok to take stuff to relax u on the worse days. Only on the worse days.

    Sometimes it feels impossible to not think about it.

    Find something very engaging. If you are introverted start socializing more .

    The key is to try to give your self less time to think.

    Its not about not facing your fears but its doesn't take half your day to think about it. You should think about it less then a half hour a day. Say to yourself self I am been irrational cause anxiety fills me with fear. The rest should be your daily task.

    Thats why people feel they need company during anxiety, cause it keeps them distracted.

    Your body is very sensitive to your thoughts and right now is easy for you to put it in panic.

    Try to ignore your body symptoms by working out.

    Don't feel guilty or sad , having this so common as you can see on this blogs. I suggest you to not spend to much time on this blogs.

      Mine is bad in the mornings and evenings. Its even worse when I know my husband has to work at night. I dislike being home by myself with the kids. I didn't use to be this bad. Bit I'm slowly getting better. Just have to over come this.

    I get it horribly in the morning. It holds me prisoner until about 3 pm and then I get better. I've heard it might be related to blood sugar
