I’ve studied my own Condition now for over 20 Years, and would like to ask the above question.

as you awaken, and before your unconscious connects with your conscious mind (between just awake and awake) I believe our Conditions don’t exist .... but as we shift our states into the “fully aware” what are your “Thought Triggers?” That awaken your Fears?

Mine have always been of Fear, not sure what I fear but it’s a feeling that I let exhume me daily..... but if I catch it before it catches me I can trick my Cerebral part of my brain, the one that makes your heart beat 100,000 times a day without thinking into overcoming that initial thought Patern/Trigger and start my day in a positive way rather than against the ropes.

What are yours? And how can you change them? ..... ONLY by by the use repetitive thought patterns can the mind heal, think negatively everyday.... it will be a negative day, think positively every morning ... it will start to adjust you NOW and your WHY’s.

Anxiety, and sleep deprivation. The psychotic breaks cause anxiety, and anxiety helps to trigger them its a self destructive cycle.

SO now i try to de stress, and get rid of the fear of them.

Tell myself i can control my brain and stop it from having an episode. Try to build my confidence and happiness.

Instead of circling the void with negative emotions and thoughts

I've been trying to figure out the why for seven years and so far it always comes back to these answers;
Caring about what people think of me
Catering to how people feel or how I think they feel
Doing something "wrong" which could be a number of things, and sometimes when I think about it later on wasn't actually wrong.
Hurting people because of my anxiety
Wanting to get better fast so I don't pass on an anxiety disorder to my son, who is such a positive, goofy, loving, daring little man.

Those are my triggers.

Never really sure what my triggers are to be honest.
I wake up and I feel exhausted (can never stay asleep).
I guess fear of fear itself, what is going to happen today, will I feel breatheless? Sometimes I wake up breatheless and that starts the whole day bad.

I try wash away bad thoughts with a nice warm shower every morning but they creep back into my life throughout the day.

Will today be the day my Mum dies? Will she have a good day or a bad day.
I like to pretend her situation doesn't exist when I'm at work then dread going to see her again. I love her but I hate seeing her now. She's not my Mum anymore.

I have super vivid recurring nightmares, in part due to my meds.

The first 20 minutes after I wake is reminding myself none of it happened.
