it's something to do with the stress hormone cortisol

especially the early morning waking with anxiety

if cortisol levels are high with increased stress/anxiety you will really feel when they kick in upon waking

I've always wondered why too. so what's recommended to counteract it! We are building at the moment, the stress is all on me and it's pretty bad. Hubby has had two heart attacks in the last few years so we knew before we started that he had to have a passive role in all this - end result - I feel so alone and bogged down in stress, no one to share it with
