Re: anxiety and sleep
You said you were excited about going to back to college. anxiety has always been looked at in a negative way, like when your taking a test you are scared and uneasy, so that is negative anxiety. but in your case you are having happy anxiety, which is looked at a more positive side. either way anxiety is associated with an andrenaline rush, in short it seems as if you adrenal system is on overtime and is confused. don't worry about not getting enough sleep you are just creating more anxiety.you will eventually crash and crash hard. my suggestion stay away from SLEEPING PILLS(they do more harm than good), try to do some deep breathing and relaxtion, eliminate all stimulants...coffee, nicotine, alcohol, whatever. take a multivitamin, get enough vitamin C, lack of sleep lowers you immune system. MOST IMPORTANT try to focus on relaxing, it is just as important as getting sleep. Good luck!! and good luck going back to school, i go back to college too in 2 weeks.
