Hi there everyone.
I've been suffering from "anxiety" or "panic" for about nearly 2 months now... and I'm just getting really sick of having to take valium in order to be able to rest/sleep without freaking out and getting weird physical symptoms... does anyone else get this? when I wake up in the morning, I feel really good... and I usually am pretty fine most of the day as well.. it's usually just about 10pm onward that I start feeling really anxious and start panicking.......... SO fed up with this!! I just want to be able to lay down and feel comfortable again, and enjoy going to bed!! not be feared by it!!! :(
I know what you mean I've been battling anxiety for ten years now,my Dr. has me on xanax but find more addicting than affective sometimes,and at bed time I toss and turn,have racing thoughts of the past,present,and even future things that may happen. Thinking ''whys'' and ''what if's''. So for sleep aid I'm on seroquel sure it gets the job done,and it may for you too. But when it kicks in most of the time I get really hungry,and even though I should just lay in bed,I stumble impaired to get food... I also listen to music,soothing cd's, i bought at Barnes and Noble...also taking deep breathes in through the nose and out the mouth.....Hope you found this helpful and believe me your not the only one,hang in there, I know it's easier said than done
