A Rude Awakening: 12:40pm

Waking Up to the struggle of Anxiety

Two days in a row with a rude awakening, this morning I woke up at 7:20am feeling like someone was pushing on either side of my chest, trying to fit a square into a circle. The discomfort makes it hard to function. A tingly, restless feeling is running through my veins. Yesterday I tried to distract myself by going out to the farmers market and writing. Today is a bit different. I don't even want to get out of bed I'm so uncomfortable. I don't know why. It's the weekend. I don't have to go to school or work, I should be fine. 

I'm exhausted both mentally and physically, but too uncomfortable to fall asleep. I feel as though I'm wasting my day by lying in bed.
