I have the same problem…my mind just swirls around and around about this thing and that…everything from worrying about my health…my husband’s…the grocery list…You name it…my Doctor gave me a prescription for Trazadone 50 mg years ago and if I take that early enough in the evening I drop like a rock when I go to bed…

Having a “feeling of dread” and “am always exhausted” can be attributed to two separate issues, as well as having both issues together. When both are together it can be hard to figure out what is what. Sometimes I wake up with that horrible feeling of dread. I attribute that to anxiety usually related to health concerns for me but for others can be different issues. People in perfect healthy can wake up to what’s referred to as “morning anxiety” as it tends to dissipate as the day goes on. LateIy when I have a medical test or sometimes just an appointment I don’t sleep at all but that feeling of dread at those times is very much there (ugh). My husband and I now both retired lost our “early to bed early to rise” previous sleeping patterns to become night owls. Don’t know how detrimental that is health wise (?) but that is where we are and despite some attempt unable so far to change.

I’ve learned to get my coffee and a snack of oatmeal, go back to bed with my loot, and ease into the morning. I enjoy my morning time listening to the radio news. Around 10:00 am or a little later I dress and go for an hour walk. I’m fine once I get out of the house. On Tuesday and Thursday mornings I do force myself out earlier so I can attend SilverSneakers aerobics and do some cardio exercises at the gym. But on all other mornings, easy does it.

Gosh, I guess I am the odd one here. Up at 0445 every morning, 2 cups of decaf and one cup of leaded coffee. Oatmeal with blueberries and a banana. Out for a walk (weather permitting) with my wife and I do a mile + and she does 6 miles (she be the healthy, young one). I come home and stretch and do light exercises for 30 to 45 minutes (unless I have early Doctor's appointments). I seem to have too many doctor's appointments or procedures, or tests, or labs, or?????? Anyhow, Military and then second job always had the both of us early and even though I have retired for nearly 10 years now, still a morning person. I do go to bed by 8:30 PM.
