I WAS DIAGNOSED WITH ABNORMALLY HIGH CORTISOL LEVELS THIS IS WHAT MY LIFE HAS BEEN LIKE

  1. Extreme anxiety at all times
    Makes it very hard to go to class, work, etc. Ranges from not being able to breathe and feeling like I'm gonna pass out to the most nervous feeling in the pit of my stomach that I've ever felt
  2. Restlessness
    Feels like I want to run a marathon
  3. Impossible to sleep
    See restlessness
  4. Extremely vivid dreams and sleep paralysis
    Had sleep paralysis where I hallucinated that a guy was on top of me kissing me and I couldn't move to get him off me
  5. Hungry and thirsty all the time
    I drink sooooo much water you guys
