Anxiety..Every Night...Same Time

By January 29, 2017 - 9:11am

Wanted to reach out and ask about an odd bout of anxiety I've been having for 9 months now...

In general I am not an anxious person. I don't suffer from anxiety during the day or in social situations. However, for 9 months now I wake up at 3AM and suffer a panic/anxiety type attach. I can't stop worrying about anything and everything. I make everything out to be a huge ordeal. This happens nearly every single night always at the exact same time.

This feeling doesn't go away for about 2 hours - the only thing that helps relieve the anxiety is mindlessly watching the weather channel on the couch until 5 am.

What is going on? Anyone experience this kind of anxiety issue before?

Hello RickN,

I know what it is to get up at that hour of the morning and not be able to sleep for long hours. It's stressful, sometimes I do not sleep.

First of all, I recommend identifying what causes anxiety, be it for something that affects your family, work or your economic area, which is the most common. For me it was a great step to identify what made me wake up at that time.

Note: It is usually the center of the set of things that you do not stop thinking when you get up at dawn.

After that, I recommend you take some vacations to release your mind a little. After you return from the holidays I know that you will encounter the same problems, but at this moment with an open mind for the holidays is when you have to sit down and plan how you can overcome what worries you and solve the situation.

I hope it is helpful.
