It doesn't sound weird to me - I go through phases exactly like that, though it usually only lasts a couple of weeks. Have you ever done a sleep study?? I'm not trying to oversimplify, by any means, but I discovered that I have very mild sleep apnea. Nothing to endanger my health or anything, but I do stop breathing, all night. Which means my body goes into fight or flight several times per hour, all night. I was waking up shaking, and confused - like I was having panic attacks while sleeping. And it turns out I essentially was! Having said that, I know GAD is very real, and it may not be physical like that for you - but just wondering if you have ever checked out your sleep patterns?Each and every morning I wake up so anxious that I'm in a state I call "completely baffled". Sometimes I'm unable to feed our dog. Thankfully, I'm always able to let her outside to do her "business". Every little task including doing my "business" just seems so complicated. If I don't have the coffee pot set up so I just flip the switch, it'll be at least an hour before I've settled down enough to be able to put a new filter, coffee and water into the coffee maker. Seems like rocket science at the time. It's a couple of hours before I can take my daily shower as heaven forbid, we're talking a really complicated task there. Plus I always embarrass myself if I look down. So very simple tasks just overwhelm me each morning during my "baffled" period. If I have something I have to go to I get up three hours beforehand otherwise I feel rushed. Weird eh?
