Why did I used to wake up with an anxiety attack every single morning? I used to be really depressed, and I noticed it stopped when my depression began to get better. I wouldn't even be thinking yet because I would literally have just woken up, and I wouldn't be dreaming about anything either. It would be just an immediate anxiety attack.

      I think for you, your depression and anxiety were hand in hand. It can be the same for others. For me, my anxiety and depression are relatively separate. Now everyone is different but the thing I've noticed with almost everyone, is that their mental health affects their physical health and the way the body reacts to certain things. Relatively true again for me. With my anxiety, I'd have night terrors and panic attacks. My depression saw me in bed for hours at time sometimes whole days. If I'm stressed and not coping well, I have migraines that make it literal hell on earth for me. It sounds like you're body was doing the same. Your mental health wasn't the best and your body was reacting in a way it thought was best. And as your mental health improved, so did the way your body working. Psychosomatic. Learned that freshman year of highschool. It's the body physically reacting to the mental condition of the person. I went off on a ramble 😅 but I hope it explains something!
