yes I do every morning as soon as my eyes open it starts and then the scary thoughts and then the body symptoms so I take my meds and eat and try to function and I also need a therapist to help me out!

Hope you feel better and know this can be beat and life will be good !!

Yea I just did about an hour ago actually upon waking, it is so odd and I can't explain why it happens. But this is why I can't stand mornings now because of that sole feeling upon waking up, lasts for about 10 minutes then goes away but it is still a burden. Hopefully someday it will pass.

when I'm really anxious about something I usually wake up earlier than my normal wake up time

honestly the word that came first to my mind was despair, I feel uneasy for over an hour sometimes

this is rare but yeah plainly put in the mornings my anxiety is at its worse and at night its at the most tame

Yeah I get it too, I hate waking up sometimes because it's literally just me being anxious.

Yup, I wake up trembling early every morning. It stops me from being able to go back to sleep, and the hell that is my everyday begins!

Hi Kenzie...

For the majority of people that suffer with anxiety/depressive disorders, mornings, upon waking, are usually the worst time.  That is because there are a lot of philological processes taking place when we go from a sleeping to a waking state.  One of those processes is the release of added stress hormones, such as cortisol, which will increase our anxiety/depression.

The brain sets-up a default setting to morning processes that trigger added anxiety/depression, and this becomes the norm.

When my anxiety disorder is acting up, mornings are always the worse for me, with my experiencing the least anxiety in the evening hours.

The very best to you, Kenzie!...  Chuck :grinning-smiley-003:

Mobile Chucko, that's a great explanation!
Kenzie, I also have anxiety that is most prominent in the morning when I wake up. I have been having issues with my vision which I guess adds to the morning anxiety as I dread the day ahead. I thought that was the reason I was waking up so anxious, feeling very terrified. I didn't know that it has to do with cortisole levels and physiology.

I get anxiety in the mornings so badly that I hate going to bed at night knowing that when I wake up the anxiety will be back. I have to take ten minutes first thing every morning doing progressive relaxation before I get out of bed or else I will be shaky and sick to my stomach. The better I can deal with it first thing, the better chance I have of getting it under control so that it doesn't ruin my entire day.

I've definitely experienced morning anxiety before. I minute I woke up my chest was extremely tight and I could not take a deep breath. I practice breathing when anxiety strikes. Usually I'll close my eyes and inhale through my nose and exhale through my mouth a few times.
