Anxiety and Insomnia

Saturday, July 19, 2014

So I've had anxiety for years. I've been able to manage it on my own, listening to relaxing music, talking it out, exercise, meditation- I am usually great at getting it under control. But for the last month it's been really bad. My heart will just pound and I freak out over stuff that really is not that important. Then it impacts my sleep and by the 5th day of no sleep, I knew it was beyond my control. I've now been to my doctor, who has given me a little help. I hate taking medication and don't want to have to take something every day- but for my own well being, at this point, I see no other option.

Sorry if it appears I've been MIA- I obviously have to get this under control before I can focus on anything else.

    I'm sorry to hear this.

Take care of you. I'll look forward to hearing from you once you are better.

    Have you been a psychologist to try to get to the root of it and try to talk it out? My mom used to have a lot of panic attacks and she found coping mechanisms when she felt them coming on. I hope you find some relief soon.
