Anxiety board

I am so frustrated. My anxiety starts as soon as I wake up. Is there some sort of chemical in my brain that develops while I sleep? I just took a 2 hour nap and I woke up with this immense feeling of guilt and anxiety -- like I shouldn't be napping on a Sunday -- like I am wasting time (i have this absurd over achiever mentality based on who-knows-what). Anyway, I am just wondering if any of you wake up with really bad anxiety (shortness of breath, depression, guilt), why it happens and what you do about it. For the record, I've been on Zoloft and Xanax for 1 1/2 months, but this has been my reality for years.
