    Yes,I do,feel horrendously anxious when first waking,it's a horrible feeling. I think it's when the adrenaline levels are at their highest. I too have a banana first thing,and glad you are having de-caff. What meds are you on?

    I have always had this.  On medication or off, I awake feeling terrible.  Takes a long time for me to settle down.  You are lucky yours does not last too long.

    Many times I have taken meds and gone back to bed.  Now not on any anti depressants or prescribed medication, so what I feel must be anxiety.  I think this must be normal as I have read a lot of messages where people with depression and anxiety feel bad when they awaken.
