Kaz,

Insomnia can make you feel this way.  I would suggest that you learn some relaxation techniques and use them prior to bedtime.  I would also suggest that you read the book No More Sleepless Nights by Peter Hauri.  If that doesn't help, you may need to consult a therapist that specializes in insomnia.  You can find a therapist in your area by contacting www.adaa.org or www.abct.org.
