Hey guys!

So I have had sleep anxiety - which turned into generalized anxiety & depression - since last year. It's been pretty much a nightmare, and I've tried probably half the medications on the market. I'm anxious during the day about sleep (since I have insomnia), so basically I just fear the bed and the idea that "I won't get to sleep." I've tried positive thought re-construction, I go to therapy once a week for it, etc, etc.

ANYWAY, this is my sixth week on Zoloft at 100mg. I've noticed myself feeling less depressed and definitely less anxious, but I still get worked up at night. It takes me no less than an hour each night to get to bed (even if I take klonopin or xanax to help me, if it's really bad). The reason I'm posting though is because I am incredibly groggy in the morning, after sleeping like 11 or 12 hours, and wake up with red stinging eyes. I take my zoloft at night (I used to take it in the morning, but then switched since I was groggy taking it then too). Is this normal??? Will this go away?

I feel like my grogginess only intensifies my anxiety/depression. If I wake up feeling like this, I get even more anxious about sleep & more depressed that I can't function properly. My eyes are burning & then want to shut (feels like I haven't slept at all), but a) I can't go back to bed and b) I need to wake up and be a normal functioning person!!!!

HELP! Please!!!! Any advice will be much appreciated :) Thanks you guys x
