I have generalised anxiety disorder, and have done for many years. Some times it's better and I can manage it quite easily. Recently it's been fairly bad so I've been seeing a psych.
My psych is booked up until sometime in June & right now my anxiety is worse and I really need some coping strategies.
Within my anxiety disorder I have always been afraid of the dark & this sometimes makes me uncomfortable being home alone at night etc.
This is a major problem at the moment because my fear has got really intense & DH is often away for work so I have to be home alone some nights. Those nights I basically get next to no sleep. I can't sleep in the dark, so I have to leave a light on, but I still freak out. Generally I sit up playing games on my phone etc. I work full-time so getting next to no sleep at nights is a big problem.
Does anyone have any tips for me?
