IS IT NORMAL
- •To regularly wake up with your heart racing, feeling a little bit panicked before you're even properly awake?(I write. From home. For myself. It's not that I'm running late to get anywhere.)
- •The internet has only been kind of helpful on this one-- seems to be a symptom of anxiety and sleep apnea.Pretty sure I don't have sleep apnea. I've never been clinically diagnosed but I am quite anxious and have a lot of the OCD traits that look to me like anxiety's neighbors (i.e., deep concern with spiritual and moral rightness).
- •My habits aren't perfect--I could stand to sleep more and I'm sure most doctors would frown at my ice cream intake. But I work out 3-4x/week, walk as my main form of transportation, and drink 2-3L of water a day.
- •This is just a weird, weird way to wake up. Anyone else?
