In brief: You're Not Alone

According to the national comorbidity study over 63% of people with bed also have a mood disorder and over 23% have an anxiety disorder, so you're not alone.
Treatment with therapy is cornerstone and an antidepressant/anti-anxiety may prove helpful. In fact, bed may be thought of as a way to "self-medicate" feelings and emotions and treatment may reduce or eliminate bed.
