I have anxiety issues and I have trouble sleeping at night because of it 5/10 times a month. Mainly because I hear my heartbeat and it spooks me because I either think it is too slow or too fast and 'I'm going to die'. I just wonder if I am not the only one who worries about this tbh. I sleep just fine during the day, but I have responsibilities, so I don't get as much as I need 😕.

      I used to have a similar issue! I would stay up at night worrying about my irregular heartbeat. I don’t fully remember how I separated from the anxiety of it, I’m sorry. But do know it is possible, and I believe you can do it :)

      It's really hard to have anxiety about things that are completely out of your control.

      I struggle a lot with that kind of thing too. I sometimes just have the thought that "what if theres a fire while I'm asleep and I die?" Or something like that. I almost always sleep with music playing so I don't hear my heart beat much, but on occasion I have had similar experiences. You're definitely not the only one. I hope that's some comfort for you. I've found for me the music playing can help calm intrusive or anxious thoughts that overwhelm me at night.
