    Hi Paula, was wondering if you usually feel bad when you first wake up. I know i'v had a lot of issues with dark negative thoughts first thing in the morning or during the night. This has been a huge problem for me during Peri menopause and I would even wake up crying sometimes. Its taken a while but I'm finally getting better and I know now that I need to take it slowly and take some time each morning to wake up properly. I have no idea if this is what you are experiencing but hope this helps.

      Hi. Not dark thoughts when I wake in the morning but mostly in the middle of the night. I wake with a jolt and then have lots of odd sensations and feel like I m going to die!! So odd. Worst thing is i can lie awake for 2/3 hours and am then tired the next day.

      Hi Paula

      i use to go through this, it will stop eventually..I would be up all night worrying and laying there scared!! what helped me to go back to sleep i will read! i know 3 am while everyone was sleeping i will seat and read my book!! Also, drinking a chamomile tea before i go to sleep really calms me down...

      I went through this for a few years, but eventually does go away...
