is it normal to have high days, with very little anxiety, then to go a few days of low, anxiety, but so far i havnt had to take my xanax. i had this fear about 330 am while i was in the kitchen reading and cooking cause i have insomnia, and thats my normal wake time. but i got this feeling that was so off, my entire body inside was hot, like i had a flush over my entire body, kind of scared me cause i had no idea what it was. im thinking mabe it was my hotflashes cause i am in menopause, or mabe its my anxiety and panic being brought back on due to my ptsd. im just so bummed because i felt i was doing good and now i can feel the fear comming up slowly. anybody experienced this and how long does this go on? is it life time?
Just want to encourage you. The anxiety does ebb and flow, but what you describe sounds like a hormonal thing. Probably a hot flash. Try to not jump to conclusions though. Just because you may have some moments of increased fear doesn't mean you have to give in to it. Self fulfilling prophecy, you know? Don't psych yourself into making it worse. Capitalize on the good days and accept that somedays are just going to be average.
You are doing a marvelous job and will continue to make progress!!
