I think I figured it out

I've noticed that my anxiety seems to grow at night. The thought of trying to go to bed makes me cringe. I couldn't figure out why I automatically become more anxious when I think about it, but I think I've figured it out. I can't sleep due to the pain. And I don't even always realize how much pain I'm in until I try to sleep. So then I get frustrated, feel more pain and want to just hide. It's a vicious circle. I just want answers. I haven't felt this way for a while. Because I don't have so many fears about school anymore. It's okay. I can't even explain these fears. It's hard to figure it out.
I just want answers. Maybe having a course of action will help. I like plans, things I can do. Little boxes to check off.
Other than that, I had a great day! The best one in a while. And tomorrow will be better, just gotta get through the pain.
