    ✘ Not a client

    I had some health issues about 1 year ago that triggered a very difficult bout of anxiety and insomnia. During those initial restless nights, I started tuning into my breathing and developed a hyperawareness. The minute I close my eyes, my mind drifts to noticing my every breath. This has stayed with me almost every night for the past year. If I am very very tired, I can usually fall asleep but when I wake up in the middle of the night, I immediately tune back into my breathing pattern and it becomes very difficult to fall back to sleep.

    Has anyone else dealt with a problem like this and are there any CBT tools to help alleviate this problem?
