Thanks @Bella P I will try to keep that in mind that it shouldn’t be seen as this is the end of the world, it can be controlled. I’m trying not to think of it until I see the doctor. But I spot something on my skin (I have small bruises that keep popping up) or feel something off and I start to freak out. I’ve had ugly palpitations pop up in these last few days
I am just like you. But I continue to have my drinks every Saturday. Sunday morning, I have the racing heart, the loose stomach, high anxiety.... at first I was put off for a few years. But then I saw that there are certain types of alcohol I just can’t drink because the symptoms are much worse and I’ve ended up in the ER. But my go to every weekend that I only experience mild effects is whiskey. I over did this Saturday and I am here dealing with anxiety from it. I feel like my stomach issues have carried on to today and usually it’s just the day after. And I feel like I’m breathing in thin air. It leaves me feeling dizzy.
I would like to stop but it’s what helps me distress. I had a really rough Friday. I told myself I should only have a night out drinking once a month. I went two weeks. And I just needed to go out. I wasn’t going to drink but once I did I didn’t stop, and I didn’t stop to drink water like I usually do. I drink a cup of water in between drinks but it was pure alcohol till I felt the effects. Then I finally had a bit of water and coffee. Welll the morning after I was having the shakes and high anxiety. Felt like that until I ate. Then it was loose stomach with a bout of anxiety. I couldn’t fall asleep last night until I got in a good workout that finally helped me knock out. And today I’ve felt like crap. And the breathing in thin air sensation is starting to give me high anxiety will that stop from going out next Saturday? Nope.
I don’t drink often, maybe 2-3 times a month. Usually only 1-2 glasses of red wine. If for some reason I have more than that I get the hanxiety. Mostly because I just feel blah the next day, which makes me lay around and not do much, which means my brain has time to think about all those things I worry about. When my brain is tired like with a hangover it seems to disable any sensible thinking abilities I have on a normal day.
Hey, it's been a long while since I've posted but I'm back. I wish I could report that I'd been better but that's not necessarily the case. I've been ok but now my battle is tapering off Klonopin. I dont know what happened to the site but I'm glad it's back up I cant tell you how much I value this.
Hi Gilly.... I think I have discussed this with you before. So worried about this burning skin which I have had for a few years. With me it all over.... my arms, legs, face, some areas of my back. Drives me crazy and again it freaks me out about diseases. Dear God how long can so many symptoms persist. Been over 40 yrs. Can you help me!!!!
