    Default Sick + How to curb anxiety so I can sleep

    Iím feeling sick, and I know I have to let myself be sick if I need to and all that, but nothing is helping me with the anxiety. I canít calm down enough to get any rest, and Iím running on 3-4 hours of sleep at this point.

    Yesterday I had coffee on an empty stomach (which was already a bad idea), and then later had pasta and went to bed. Unfortunately, I was already feeling ill yesterday before (and especially after) the pasta, and I barely slept.

    Today my stomach hurts, and I have this gagging feeling in my throat that really scares me, + I just feel gross in general. I wouldnít be surprised if I really did get sick right now. I would like to get through today without getting sick but I know that that isnít possible sometimes.

    Iíve tried telling myself that Iíll be perfectly fine if I do end up getting sick, and I really have nothing to be afraid of, but nothing seems to stop this panic I get, and Iím not sure what to do right now.

    If you were going to puke, you would have by now. Eat healthy and get yourself feeling better. You will not feel better by not eating. Doug

    Good point! I should keep this in mind whenever I need to be more rational.
