Hi always anxious and welcome! Yes, I often wake up panicking or anxious.  I find it's good to keep a book close by so I can switch on my lamp and read to take my mind off it.

Just about every morning I wake that way Alwaysanxious. I have come to think that my mind just freaks out because it 'doesn't yet have a plan' for how to CONQUER the new day! :-) I usually just go ahead and get up, drink my ovaltine and take my vitamins. Once I begin to focus and maintain optimism for the day ahead it goes away. I wish you well - keep us posted. God bless...   Idie/panicinID

My worst time is at night after the rest of the household is in bed and I can sit down to relax. Usually once I'm asleep I'm ok for the rest of the night.

YES! This is my absolute worst time. I wake up with a nawing feeling in my stomach and I just want to hide under the covers but I can't because the more I lay there the more anxious I get.

Oh yes, there are not many mornings that I don't wake up that way. I almost hate the fact I have to deal with yet another day, more worries and anxieties. All the what ifs come flowing in.

I am new here. Really glad I found this site. I was on another site that was really good but not very active. could go for days without a reply or talking to anyone, and it really does help to talk to others who understand what you are going through. If you want to hit that site you can see my history. A little backround, I am divorced and remarried with a 13 year old daughter, if any of you know what that is like, we used to be best buds but now not so much, from what I understand it is her age and I need to adjust to it, it is quite an adjustment, especially when I feel ike this, but I guess they all go through this stage. She is a great kid, straight A's, very active, just doesn't need her mom so much and I feel like I need to be needed. sounds like we all have a difficult time in the morning, I start feeling better around 2 in the afternoon and then am pretty normal the rest of the night unless something "triggers" my anxiety. Don't know if it is because I take the meds in the morning and they aren't as much in my system when I wake up, I just want to wake up and feel like myself instead of feeling sick. I started on 10 lexapro 2 and a half weeks ago but it seemed to make me more anxious so I cut to 5 on Monday and it does seem to help. maybe have to up once I get used to it but I think the 10 to start was a little much. I took it a year and a half ago and the 10 worked miracles, and pretty quickly, but maybe just too much this time, and needs a little more time. Really hoping it will fully be in my system soon and I can be more consistent with my moods,. My husband had knee surgery monday and he and my daughter really need me at my best. Howlyncat, what made your mornings better. it is really tough to start your day this way. I used to be able to hop out of bed and do a ton before work, now I am lucky I get up. don't like the example I am setting for my daughter, glad I found you guys,

I will stay here, as it really helps,

hoping you all have better days,


I edited out the other site as it is a site similar to HW and thus not allowed to be posted here.
