I have been diagnosed with panic disorder. I wont take medication though. Im too scared of the side effects of any drug. Im trying to work it out myself. I read alot, meditate, pray, walk outside, distract myself anyway possible. However, you are right. I feel my worst at night. What I do when I really cant cope, after trying the above, I put on headphones and I listen to something relaxing for me. Relaxing for me is, worship music or preaching. You may listen to whatever would calm you down. This has helped me tremendously. And I fall asleep right away. Sometimes now, I don't even have to listen to anything. In time, we'll be okay. Hope this helps. And hope you have a great day tomorrow.
Up at night? You are, indeed, a "moon" flower. For me, reading does the trick. A few pages -and - Zzzzzzz. Luli z's out on worship music and preaching. If I listened to that, I'd end up singing out loud and getting into arguments with the preacher. So, it is very much a question of what works for you. Maybe books on tape?
