sleep and anxiety

Posted by garnet71 on April 24, 2009, at 22:28:31

Can bad sleep cause anxiety or does anxiety cause bad sleep? I'm such a light sleeper, I hate it. I have a lot of lucid dreams, though not as much recently, but it's like my brain won't let me leave consciousness. It always wants to stay on and be active instead. Then I used to be conscious of my sleep paralysis--and be paralyzed for a moment, sometimes longer, trying to move. I hated that.

I have a 2 story home and always sleep with my bedroom door closed. Even so, for example, if someone downstairs were to light a match, I instantly, well abruptly, wake up from the smell. Then I can't go back to sleep. I'm not really having anxiety now, but was like this for a long time.

Just wondering how important sleep patterns are to our brain function, but more specifically to anxiety. I know sleep is very important, but does anyone here know about this subject?
