Up Early


I usually sleep very well at night. That’s mostly due to the many medications I have to take. However, I wake up very early and have trouble getting back to sleep. I tend to worry about the events of the coming day, the activities I have to do. I suffer from anxiety and my anxiousness is what keeps me up early in the morning.

To stem the anxiety, I take medication, but it doesn’t help me get back to sleep. I usually get up very early and say my prayers, and then check my email. That helps my anxiety, too. Keeping busy helps. I also write early in the morning to help decrease the anxiety levels. I love to write and that focuses my mind on things other than my anxiety.

About mairedubhtx

I am a "youngish" grandmother of 15 year old twin granddaughter who has recently (is a year "recent"?) adopted Islam as my way of life, much to the consternation of my family. I love to read. I love to write. I am writing a book about my decision to revert, about my spiritual journey. I have another blog about stories from my youth, my parents, and grandparents. It's a blog so my OCD daughter will not be able to throw it out when I die. I suffer from depression and anxiety, for which I am treated, so my posts may be a bit dark at times. C'est la vie.
