Yep.  Sometimes I am anxious before my eyes even open up in the morning.

May be due in part to the fact that cortisol (the stress hormone) is at the highest levels around 4-6 AM so it really can get anxiety in gear early in the day.

Always! Even when I am usually over a particular worry and I feel fine, in the morning, it's like all rationality goes out the window and I have spontaneous thoughts about having a terminal illness.

I have also noticed that I look for problems to worry about - even though I don't want to. It's like my body is so used to being anxious that it is abnormal to feel calm - which is quite sad actually.
