Hi all, I am wondering how to cope with an anxiety in the morning. It leaves me paralyzed when I wake up and it's hard for me to start my day. Sometimes it leads to bad depression. My brain wakes up hoping that I won't feel anything (I have "trigeminal neuralgia") and even if the pain is extremely low, I panic that it's still there. I think my brain falsely hopes that it can wake up and today is going to be different. But it never is. And I am aware of the fact that it will be there every morning until who knows when. But my brain is always so "disappointed" and I get extremely anxious - I would still feel the left side of my face/jaw and the annoying feeling/pain. I just want to feel normal and I know it takes time but my brain panics every morning. Any suggestions or explanations why this happens?
