Is your anxiety worse in the morning or evening?

Although I experience anxiety both during the day and night, I think that I feel more anxious in the morning (including early morning anxiety in the periods when I am particularly anxious).

Thank you, @mia23 . Like @E.B, I feel anxious usually after waking up in the morning or in the hours that follows after waking. I can feel extremely worried, with intrusive thoughts, and full of dread in the morning after the more or less calm evening.

When going through anxiety episodes of severe worry waking up in the morning with it can be the worst feeling in the world. Just a horrible feeling of dread. Honestly the terror is unexplainable. For me personally what adds to it is in sleep you may feel ok in a dream but then wake up and realize the reality of your mind state. At least for me. I know everyone is different.

EB said it well...waking to the realization of your mind state. It hits you like a brick in the head.

My story as well Juma Khamis. All day long waves and waves of anxiety. I'm great in the morning and winding down at night. Anxiety sucks.

It is for me!! As soon as my eyes open I have a panic attack! It’s not fun. Then you get the thought, “oh no, another day!”

Hang in there!!

I have been blessed with mornings. I am thankful that my anxiety often disappears and I find total peace in the evenings. I know sleep is coming and that turns it off for me I guess. Mornings can be awful though. I wake up shivering and nervous. This morning I had another one. I never want to get out of bed because then I have to face it. :(

Afternoon and evening for me. I feel as if being at work all day helps keep my mind off of it. As soon as i get home though, different story.

My anxiety is definitely worse at night idk why. Also as soon as i wake up in the morning i feel anxious right away. Its like all the things i was thinking and worrying about the night before come rushing back into my mind when i wake up

All day long... and the nights... it is waking me up. Almost 2 months. I'm exhausted.

I usually wake up around 3 or 3:30 - sometimes I get lucky and sleep through, but as soon as I wake up my anxiety hits. I get up and walk around all shaky and nervous. Great way to start the day!

Mine is worse the longer I've been awake. When I first get up I really don't have any, but really I'm talking about a window of roughly 30 minutes.
