    As soon as night falls I don't know why,

    at least I think I don't. But I become freakishly anxious and always struggle to sleep even when it's been good during the day. :( it really bothers me and I have an idea that if I fix up my sleep pattern it might go away but it's hard to fix it up when, I can't sleep during the...

    I have anxiety at any time of the day,

    but it gets so much worse at night... I get most of my bad attacks at night time... I don't understand why... Night time used to be the most calming part of the day for me... now it's not... weird.

    I Have Nighttime Anxiety...

    Ever since I was little I have always been afraid to go to sleep. I've always been afraid of the dark. And I've always had anxiety about nighttime. It gets so bad that sometimes I don't go to the bathroom at night just because I'm on the verge of a panic attack. My...

    I lay awake thinking of everything.

    I just can't sleep sometimes. Lately it's been a lot worse. I just lay there wishing I could sleep. Anyone have any solutions on how to get to sleep when you feel so anxious your chest hurts??

    Tomorrow Is Another Day

    I get night time anxiety too, but it is more about dreading the next day and all it brings. I feel out of control because time keeps moving and tomorrow comes and there is nothing I can do to control it or protect myself from it.

    I think it's because

    when everyone is asleep, I can't seek reassurance from anyone and it freaks me out, makes me feel alone.

    Man it's getting me good tonight.

    Pounding heart, racing thoughts, butterflies, panic, nausea. I realized I had caffeine at almost 10 pm.. Always a terrible idea! What do you guys do to make your night anxiety go away? Do you ever feel like you're going crazy?
