What works for panic attacks, anxiety? Amino acids…if which ones?
I have been off of alcohol for a couple of weeks, been of valium for 9 months…Lots of worry and stress daily…I need help?
Meditate. Really. Imagine you are on a beach somewhere, or in the woods – somewhere you find peaceful.
Sit tight – I promise you, if you simply sit, and be still, you will not spontaneously combust. I’ve been off the booze for years now, and watched hundreds of people get sober, and I’m gonna tell ya, part of the reason why you are wound tighter than a swiss watch made in china is because you aren’t drinking….its part of your brain recalibrating because its not pickled….
Just breathe. This too will pass. Really.
You need to give your brain a little time to get used to its new settings. Trying to take things for it might actually make it worse. There is a reason why they don’t give newly sober folks a bunch of drugs to be more comfortable….newly sober folks usually want to jump out of thier skin no matter what…
So hang in there….get some phone numbers. Call some folks. Ask them how they are doing. It will get your mind off of your anxiety, and help you build some social support networks.
