weird anxiety...

I just got my hedgie yesterday morning. She's been so good, not really afraid at all and very friendly. She escaped her cage twice last night, and I ended up staying awake all night :| My room's very warm and I had the lights on for her from 7 till 8:30 but I still feel like she's going to try to hibernate. I think I'm just being paranoid, but it's really stressing me out. I'm afraid I'm going to do something wrong and end up hurting/killing her. I've had that whole weird anxiety stomach knot all day and I really just want to cry. What the heck?! Why am I being so weird right now? Has this happened to anyone else? Sorry for the random rant, I just don't like feeling this way :(

Thanks guys! I'm feeling much better today, probably because I actually slept decently. She didn't get out last night so I guess I did a good job of escape-proofing the cage from the little houdini :lol: She wasn't very active yesterday when I took her out to play (Probably because I kept waking her up when I was fixing her cage), and she pretty much slept all night, I did wake up 2 or 3 times and checked on her, so hopefully tonight she'll be well rested and ready for some playtime. I think once I see her being more active and running on her wheel again I'll be fine. Thanks for all the support, I'm glad I'm not the only one who feels this way sometimes.
