I drank this afternoon, well now yesterday afternoon, it’s been 5-7 hours since I drank and I’ve been totally fine all day and had lots of water. It wasn’t til I was going to bed around 1 that I got horrible anxiety and it won’t go away. I’m nervous about the alcohol even though it was so long ago. I’m so mad at myself.

Don’t be mad at yourself. Be kind. It is just a slip up. Be kind to yourself. I don’t drink and still get bad GAD. Is there anything on television that you can get interested in to calm you down. It is such a debilitating condition. Take some deep breaths and I am here for you until you feel a little better xx

I’m just getting worse I get so nervous it might happen, but there is no reason too, it’s just my anxiety is so powerful.
I have diazepam, but it makes me feel depressed the next day so I am hesitant to take it.

that’s what I’m trying to do now. I just need the reassurance that I’m going to be okay and it’s just anxiety and there’s no reason I would need to be s*^%

It is just anxiety. I take 2 mg diazepam and sometimes settles me. I have just taken 1mg as mine is high. I suffer also ventricular ectopics and from vestibular disorder so if anxiety high they are worse. I also take magnesium to calm the ectopics. Try and be kind to yourself. I am listening to you and I am here. Have you tried mindfulness. It is hard when anxiety is high as you think nothing will bring it down. Just keep talking to me and I will try and help as much as I can xx

Thank you. It definitely helps to talk to someone. I try but there’s so many bad thoughts going through my head and they won’t stop. I took some diazepam so hopefully that will help.
My show on the TV isn’t even a good enough distraction.

Just keep talking. What is your favourite animal. I love all animals and have two dogs. But my favourite is hananya from monkey world in Dorset. I think of him a lot and follow his progress on tv.

Oh that’s awesome! Monkeys are definitely fascinating. I love baby ducks, and I have a horse so I love horses. I kinda like all animals. Do you have a favorite type of scenery? Or weather? Like dessert and summer or winter and Mountain View’s etc.

We don’t have mountains where we live. I think summer but the UK can be unpredictable. A horse wow. I would have loved to have learned to ride. Do you ride him/her. Do they take a lot of looking after. My friend who lives an hour away rescued two a small one and a shire horse. My hubby is very nervous of them. Baby ducks are gorgeous. We did go to the park before lockdown and feed them. My dogs are old now.

My hubby has a lot of hobbies. I don’t really have any apart from suduko. He collects all sorts. We have koi fish, 1000 glass baubles for the Christmas tree, he also collects stamps and a number of other things. It is never ending.

Those are my favorite type of ornaments wow that’s so cool. Mine likes to collect old cars and trucks if he can fine good deals on them and repair them.
I like the summer in the valley but sometimes winter and seeing snow is a nice break.

my horse is a be, 22 years young. All my animals are black and white it’s kinda funny. My dog, cat and horse are only those colors. It’s not much maintenance because our family owns a boarding facility and they do full care. I haven’t gotten to ride in several months though. I unfortunately just had surgery last week so due to the pain I haven’t been able to
