the act of freely giving myself up to unconsciousness where my body can have who knows what done to it and i am unable to protect myself gives me panic attacks most nights. it's part of why we sleep better when nate tucks the littles in. he reassures them that he has their back.

overcome it? i never thought about it. i figure the day i let my guard down is the day they get me lol.

I usually have seemed to wake up with them. [That is pretty awful too.] I take mirtazapine at night, and that calms me at bedtime.

Progressive relaxation might help, listening to some comforting music, or a tape/CD book... reading might help too...

Do you journal? Reflecting on what the triggers might be could help.

Hi, It sounds like you would really benefit from some breathing exercises or yoga (or any form of exercise for that matter) prior to sleep.

Althernatively there is the medication route, where you could talk to your dr about taking something like valium or xanax prior to bedtime.

I HAVE BEEN DEALING WITH THIS FOR A LONG LONG TIME!!!!!

That said, here are some of the things I am doing:

  • exercising every day
  • taking a time out every day
  • taking my night meds gradually - starting around dinner time
  • listening to meditation music on my CD player at night till I am way asleep
  • stay on a schedule
  • don't drink a lot of coffee or eat a lot of sugar
  • try and get to the root of the problem

For me, it was a very busy summer that did it. And it's like once you get into this pattern? It's really hard to get out of it. I have seen a specialist, everything my p-doc can think of. I finally have figured out what was causing them, and though they have subsided, I still have them once in a while.

Good luck. I think the meds early and the music were the keys in getting them to go away.
