    Trouble is I’m not really sure what I did, I did acknowledge the thought and told them to get lost ,which works I guess, but they keep popping up so obviously there in the back ground. Now I am trying the sleep restriction which means I am up after every body has gone to bed , I’m usually too tired to read or do coloring and so find myself quite up tight by time my sleep window starts, so I either end up staying up later or go to bed , drop off to sleep but seem to wake with in 30 min then it’s awake time. I realize as I’ve written this that I am obviously putting too much effort into trying to get to sleep!! Wish I could switch off and let it happen.

    I thought that I was managing to cope with the thought by thinking about them and then letting go , but with no sleep feel that familiar knot in my stomach and though I try to put it aside not working too well.

    Hi me again after using sleep restriction for few days found I was sleeping much better, then wham one night go to bed, time midnight nearly drop off to sleep then awake, got up twice over the course of 2 – 3 hours then stayed in bed as felt fairly relaxed, not sure how much sleep I got but not a lot. My questio is how many times should you get out of bed if it starts to take all night.

    Thanks Scott, already have great improvement in anxiety, but it’s early days yet and I’ve been there before, find if I think about it , it rears its head. Sleep has been better as well.

    Thanks Scott, you are right and that is excately what is happening, I know as it gets close to bed time I start getting anxious , but don’t seem to be able to control it, it’s more a subconscious thought rather than conscious thought process. Any tips on controlling this would be appreciated.
