    So, my mental health isn't great at all. But I am wondering if any of you guys ever experienced this. Last night I spent a good few minutes just balling my eyes out at whatever I was sad at then came a point where I began to laugh within my cries. I don't know what this is or if it's a symptom thats worth mentioning but I am just wondering if this is somthing anyone else has experienced?

    Also, have any of you had 'night axiety' where your brain won't turn off but you fall asleep due to the sheer exhaustion of the anxiety keeping you awake. And you just think about everything like sometimes i think about uni and A level exams and i literally cannot fall asleep due to it. Also, sometimes I will hear whispering voices if I don't go to sleep at a certian point. The voice I say will go 'one two three bang' but will whisper it.

    You're not alone. I've experience the crying + laughing before. At first I would be crying because I'm so upset, but the more I cry, the more I come to realize how ridiculous the situation is and just start laughing at 'my response' or the ridiculousness of it. It's not a happy laugh though, it's just a 'i'm-lost-and-i-dont-know-what-i-am-doing-anymore' kind of laugh.

    I can also relate to the 'night anxiety'. Sometimes my body would be so tired and begging for sleep but I couldn't fall asleep because thoughts are just constantly in my brain and they come and go and bother me a lot. It happens mostly at night when I go to bed because that's when you're 'least distracted' and your brain has nothing to think about, so it brings back all the worries.

    Yeah, the thing is i don't even know what I was laughing about. My laugh is kinda like a i-have-totally-given-up-on-life laugh. Maybe it is because I can't believe the situation that I am in?

    I guess so, it is just annoying because then for the rest of the day i am sleep deprived and that makes me feel even more bad. It's like a viscous cycle.
