Basically I need to know some kind of explanation about what could be or is wrong with me ...some background information that may be relevant is I've had a significant traumatic event in my childhood, I worry a lot about certain social situations without making out to everyone else like I worry about anything and I'm fine and also that I have illogical and irrational fears and phobias of things I've never seen e.g ghosts. I get very very anxious easily and quickly. My main signs when I'm anxious are looking around the room and breathing quicker and heart palpatations becoming irregular. Basically, I've not often had a full,good nights sleep since I was a baby. Since being a toddler I had become anxious at bed times and sat and cried untill sometimes 3am (very late for a toddler) till my mother came and sat with me until I fell asleep. Now I'm older I go to bed and suffer from the same anxiety. I check around my room before I get into bed and then after I get into bed I check around the room every time I hear any noise and also sometimes when I don't hear anything. I without fail go to bed anxious every night now and its causing me to become depressed. Once I'm in bed I have to have music on. I don't like silence , the dark, being on my own. Horrible images and ideas pop into my head. On a regular night I don't get to sleep untill at least 3am. Once I am asleep I awaken upto 6 times a night and call for my mother. I'm an adult now and this is not normal behaivour. I have disturbing nightmares. I'm very worried I don't know if this is insomnia or anxiety problems but I'm so tired its brought me to tears and enough is enough. I am concerend about my future as an adult and do not want to suffer from this any longer. I am incredibley tired. I worry about everything and I'm stressed. Thank you to anyone who has any ideas.
