Fear of not being able to sleep
Asked By: Anonymous Views: 1,581 times
I have severe social anxiety, I avoid many social gatherings and even avoid making phone calls. I have such bad anxiety that I literally have gotten so worked up that I can't sleep and I now am fearful that I won't go to sleep. I am now taking Remeron to calm down and be able to sleep. Now I feel spacey and am hungry all the time. I can't focus at work and make more mistakes, which makes me more anxious. I don't want to take medication, but I can't get off. I have been trying for 3 yrs now, help! I feel like my life is just passing me by. I have started reading your book Beyond Shyness.
