Always scared of something. I hate this anxiety. Especially once night time comes around. I usually stay up until 5 AM or so. Just really late. Those late hours are the worst for my anxiety. I try to keep myself busy. Games on my phone, my favorite TV shows. But its never enough distraction to take away thoughts. Factor in depression, and I don't even feel good enough to do most of the things I love to do. My shortness of breath, always. Its common with being a hypochondriac, but I can never seem to rationalize. I always think yep, this is it. Also the weakness I get sometimes in my legs and arms. Weird feelings in my chest. Just not feeling good. Why couldn't my brain be wired normally? And just be content and okay? I can't even eat the cookie I wanna eat because I'm thinking about if someone poisoned it.

Update this feeling is persisting. It's like I can't relax. It doesn't help that the days flow into eachother.

Wow i feel like i wrote this because ive been feeling the same way. During the middle of the night my anxiety is 10x worse like everything seems scarier at night. Ive been dealing with shortness of breath too and worrying about it everyday. Also same thing with me...nothing distracts my mind. Nothing works. I just can't stop worrying and my mind wont shut off...living with anxiety is truly awful :(

Another update. I just feel so foreign and odd. It makes me feel like I have cancer or something else I don't know about. My arms and legs feel weird. Like something tingling in them. The feeling goes up to my fingertips and hands sometimes as well. My head also feels weird. Like its heavy or something, or like I have tired eyes even though I'm not sleepy. I feel like there's some kind of pressure in my chest or just. Its weird. Its the only way I ever know how to describe it. And then I fear closing my eyes because like what if I, ya know. I don't like to say the word because it triggers me. D**th.
