If you're an anxious person, chances are you also experience sleeping problems from time to time. Depending on individual anxiety levels and environmental stressors in your life, the natural sleep process can be easily disturbed by stressful events which, in turn, lead to further stress and fatigue. In some cases, people can become anxious as darkness falls as they begin to think negative thoughts about their inability to sleep. Those with anxiety and panic disorders who are overly stressed due to life circumstances can find their sleeping patterns deteriorate and can become increasingly distraught about their inability to sleep. It is a vicious cycle but an understandable one, as the human mind is very good at protecting itself from harmful situations. In fact, sometimes it is too good at its job; hence in recognizing the importance of sleep, a person will worry endlessly and inadvertently galvanize the adrenalin cycle into action. You could try some alternative ways to get sleepy. There are some herbal remedies for sleep. Chamomile and Lavender are often used for relaxation and can be found in many forms including sprays and oils that will scent the bed and bedroom. By trying to create an environment that is conducive to sleep, the mind and body are encouraged to connect and prepare for a restful night. There is aromatherapy which uses essential oils that are prepared for individual requirements. The effect of the oils and the calming action of the massage create a sensation of relaxation, calm and comfort that help encourage sleep. Smell is a powerful sense and different scents may help recapture memories of more peaceful times and a sense of wellbeing. In Chinese Medicine there are around 6,000 herbs used to treat a number of conditions and restore harmony. Anyway, you're only 16 so your body and mind should be strong enough to fight back those anxiety attacks. Don't hesitate to look for a professional help in order to learn the techniques that will help you stop anxiety attacks. I hope this will help you and you'll get better soon.

Hi:

My panic attacks started when I was 23, and got worse for 2 years.
Despite having a very successful life, in the past 3-4 decades, all I did was just managing my thoughts, and brain to be able to cope with my environment, and the attacks. About 2 months ago, I got my blood tested for viatmin d3. It was quite low, and after receiving 2 injections, I was cured of all my panic attacks, depression, etc. Please insist on taking this blood test. It is well known that low levels of vitamin d3 create depression, and anxiety.

Best wishes,
Ali
