I posted a few times about
having panic attacks a few weeks ago. I have been having small ones off and on for a few weeks now. I think they aren't nearly as bad as they could be. I start talking myself out of them, I think. I still have a few questions about
anxiety.. My main concern is my sleeping. I've always had trouble sleeping and getting GOOD sleep. It wasn't until about
1-2 years ago that I started to sleep really well. I think it's because I changed my eating habits, was very happy, and active. Now I'm starting to have trouble sleeping again. I'm a full time babysitter (a 10mo old) and her mom's schedule is ALWAYS different which means my sleeping schedule isn't always the same as it has been the past 1-2 years. The past 1-2 weeks, I have felt like I haven't gotten any good sleep.. sometimes feel like I haven't slept much at all. And sometimes I feel great! But usually in the afternoons/night, I start to get REALLY draggy.. inattentive bad. I feel like I'm crazy and I'm dreaming all the time (while I'm awake). I start thinking weird things.. things that doesn't make any sense that would only appear in dreams. Like today, ok this is weird.. but, I was outside and thought "Wow, its really bright out there, maybe I should turn off the ligh--wait, what the hell?"..And another thing.. I dream A LOT when sleeping & have been waking up a lot through out the night. Maybe thats another cause.. But the fact that I feel like I'm half-alseep all the time worries me. I wake up extremely anxious for some reason and even when I lie down at night.. I get really anxious. Why is this? I feel like I'm totally out of it. My brain doesn't seem to be functioning well and ughhh.. I'm tired of it. :( I'm going to get a hold of a doctor soon. I'm not sure what is going on.
Oh, and when I start getting really nervous/anxious.. I urinate a lot and even have to use the "bathroom".. but on the days I'm feeling fine, my bathroom habits are normal and I don't have all those awful tummy aches! I hate that its so off an on like this. I feel so unbalanced. I worry that it could be something serious.. I'd really love some advice and some input.
