Not in my situation. Whenever I don't get enough sleep and I'm really tired, I am overly anxious and things are much harder. Lack of sleep tends to make most mental issues go more out of wack.

Well, it has to be extreme. Like if I haven't slept for 30 hours then I'm not necessarily worrying about what other people think. I'm just trying to stay awake.

Lack of sleep makes me irritable and more anxious. I used to get 4-5 hours regularly during a busy period at work and I had serious trouble socialising.

I was thinking about that because most anti anxiety meds cause drowsiness. That's the only help they've been I still feel the anxiety but it's easier when you're less alert. That plus I don't sleep much I seem relaxed and laid back I'm not I'm sleep deprived.

Immediately after getting up from a nap I feel like I can do anything. It's all downhill from there.

If I've overslept (>=9 hours) my mind feels a bit fuzzy and sluggish, and I can be anxious. If I've underslept (<=6 hours) than I feel sleepy, irritable and subsequently anxious. I need the medium.

Yes, absolutely. For a time I would even purposely sleep deprive myself before big social events. It dulls me in a good way. Makes me way more mellow.

I worry about being too tired when I have to be in social situations because if I'm too out of it when people are talking to me, I'll end up looking pretty damn weird.

Yes, on nights that I don't sleep at all, I'm always a bit zombielike the next day, and am able to be less inhibited. I think it's because my brain just doesn't have the energy to be anxious, so it doesn't bother generating those "anxious" thoughts.
