I've seen similar threads like this one before and people usually agree that it is worse in the morning but from my part I feel the other way around. I guess it's because I am not a morning person and care less what people think then. idk
My paranoia is worse in the morning. I can barely make out the voices of people outside or in other apartments talking and laughing, and I think they're talking about me, laughing at me. When I'm still half asleep and drowsy, those ridiculous thoughts seem real and my heart starts beating faster and I feel horrible. Thanks to all the bullies that traumatized me over a decade. Thanks to parents whispering about me when I could hear them.
I get this as well, I actually try to avoid some classes in the morning just because I feel so stuck in my head. Add to that jumping into the Parisian metro where everybody's grim, pissed off and keen on staring you down if you look just a tad out of it and morning time feels like your public execution is coming up. What works but which is unhealthy is eating a big fat breakfast, the Irish breakfast does it for me.
im doing pretty ok in the morning IF i get my coffee. my anxiety is worse during afternoon and evening because it makes me so damn tired (mentally) to be around people (at school/work) so at the end of the work-shift/classes i really have zero interest in conversations and just wanna get home to be alone and wait for another pointless day...
Yep, mine is bad here in the mornings as well....although it has subsided a bit after taking some St. Johns Wort/ Now Foods "True Calm" supplements before bed.
My anxiety is usually worse if I have nothing to do that day...or not working till late in the day. A lot of the time, I just feel like I can't/don't want to get out of bed either. Although when this happens, I usually get up and read a book for a bit, then eventually get hungry enough to eat breakfast (I'm not the kind of person that can jump right up and eat in the morning).
My anxiety is worse in the morning. This could be due to a couple of things.
Maybe I am dreading what the day might bring. Since I have anxiety I am always worrying about the immediate future. I have a whole day in front of me and being a pessimist I think I will do something later in the day to embarrass myself.
Or I simply need to legitimize my existence by speaking with another person. For example, I live with my father and once I have a decent interaction with him I usually feel better, legitimized for the rest of the day for having experienced that.
Or my brain chemistry really is worse in the mornings. I've noticed even alcohol does not produce anxiolytic or euphoric effects in the morning but very much does so in the evening. Other euphoric and anxiolytic inducing substances I have used also do not work in the first half hour after I wake up in the mornings either. That, in itself, I have observed is quite a phenomenom.
