I have been keeping myself awake until 2am- ish all week. I've been on my phone a lot, which I know is not great at bed time.
Tonight I started feeling anxiety rising and all I wanted to do was watch Netflix for the next couple hours to shut down my thoughts. Instead, I chose to download a sleep meditation podcast and try that.
Good, healthy choice, right?
Now I'm in tears and feeling more anxious than ever.
I recently joined an online therapy group through public health and they start each session with a mindfulness/grounding exercise. The same thing has been happening with those. As I try to open myself up to trying it, I get flooded with sensations and break down in tears and anxiety.
Has anyone else experienced this? What am I supposed to do?
