I have sleep anxiety.

I am afraid of sleeping. When I think about going at home at night and sleeping alone I have a panic attack. Then I toss and turn asking myself why can't I fall asleep and there are a million thoughts racing through my head. I am afraid of going to sleep because my mind might race. And I have this feeling that maybe I am crazy, maybe I am heading for a crash. I eventually fall asleep around 3 in the morning but I do wake up often because the sleep is very agitated. It got to the point that only by sleeping with someone in the house or in the bed I get comfortable and get to sleep. Did anyone encounter this problem?

I exactly have the same problem. When I had a roommate, I sleep really long and well. but now I live alone, and I keep waking up in the middle of the night. I can only sleep well with the sleeping aid nowadays. this lack of sleep increases my anxiety all day. I feel like I am cursed or something.

Recently my husband moved to another city for a job and we stayed behind for him to get us an apartment . I started staying with a friend and everything was fine . I came back to my mom after a month and I am now having anxiety when everyone goes to sleep and I think of all these things and senerios .. it's got to the point where I end up falling asleep at 3:30 am . I drink relaxing teas and nothing seems to help ! It's def horrible feeling on the count of already being anxious all day !
