You obsess over trivial things that others may not even notice

A simple word or a look from someone is enough for your head to start processing and rewinding the situation even for days. The truth is that you obsess over anything that happened recently, or a week ago.
You may be obsessed with a conversation you had or the fact that someone hasn't sent you a message yet.

You go to bed late, you get up early

One of the biggest problems for you is going to sleep. After everything your mind has processed during the day, you find it difficult to go to sleep.
When morning comes, your anxiety clock starts working again, and it sounds several alarms, even if you're tired. When your anxiety goes on (when you wake up), you can not do anything to turn it off, so you do not go back to bed.

When you communicate with someone if they do not answer immediately, you begin to think that maybe you have said or done something wrong.
However, you should stop and consider that maybe they are in the middle of something that requires their full attention :)

While everyone waits and makes plans for the future, your view on this subject makes you feel intimidated and frustrated.
