Another sleepless night. It is 3:30 a.m. and I am already awake, very tired, sleepy and unable to go back to sleep. My heart is racing. I am scared... but, scared about what?

With the years I've come to appreciate my anxiety. If I look at it in a specific way it might have saved my life. I mean, since I discovered my anxiety was linked heavily to what I eat/drink I started eating better because of it. I drink less alcohol, still have issues of not being able to stop when I start, but now I drink much less than I used to and I control myself better. I am able to understand and empathise with others going through similar situations. I would not change my experience as thanks to anxiety I am who I am, and I feel it has made me stronger. I can help people too.

I am just sooooo tired of sleepless nights. I feel exhausted and not myself.

“If you are depressed you are living in the past.
If you are anxious you are living in the future.
If you are at peace you are living in the present.”

― Lao Tzu (?)

I always found that quote useful. Also, try some really strong camomile tea, it might help. Best to you.
