My anxiety has been increasing again lately. Especially during the mornings are the worst time. I feel more relaxed towards evening though. The last few days I've been really struggling with staying asleep.

Hey @Rider52. I have trouble sleeping too. My support worker suggested I try a weighted blanket. You choose the weight about 10 percent of you body weight. I'm going to try it tonight just got it, but it is meant to help with anxiety and sleeping problems. I'll let you know how I go with it. Sorry to hear you're having problems

I hope the blanket helps you sleep better. I got 3 hours of sleep and just can't get back to sleep.

I know how it feels. Sometimes I get up and have a shower at 3am in the morning and go back to bed afterwards. Bit hit and miss but sometimes it works. Thanks rider, a good nights sleep sets you up for a good day, it is really important. Hope you get some sleep tonight
