I agree with the others that therapy would be beneficial to you. You can overcome anxiety but first you have to face it and deal with it.
You can also keep a journal. Sometimes that is really helpful. Write in it at night before you try and go to sleep. You can also try some herbal tea or taking a hot bath.
These are all relaxing techinques but the only way to truly overcome it is to deal with it.
I hope you feel better soon and can get some sleep.
Anxiety can peak or manifest itself at different times and ways in my experience with it. When I was going through it, I also had a hard time when the day would wind down and I was left alone with my thoughts. There are various ways to approach your anxiety in my opinion, however one must confront it to deal with it. By confronting it, you learn about it and in my opinion, it makes it much less scary and easier to deal with. I believe we tend to to fear what we don't understand and anxiety is no different.
Do you have access to counseling? For me, talking it over with someone, helped me to understand why I was thinking the way I did. One on one counseling as well as group counseling can be extrememly beneficial in my opinion....keep us posted.
sounds more like you have serious anxiety and while your trying to sleep and your mind in blank, all your anxieties start to chase you. If its this bad that it is preventing you from sleeping, I would say it time to seek out a doctor or therapist. Anti-anxiety medication is probably in order at lest for the short term so you can sleep. Until then, maybe try some OTC sleeping aids like benadryl to help you fall asleep faster.
