Good evening!

I had'nt touched a drop of alcohol in several years and then my best freind/room mate and me were at the grocery one day and we both said what the heck, let's get a case and order pizza. Well, I drank my first beer that afternoon and I thought I was in heaven. In fact, I started having a few beers every other day and last night my room mate and me both got kind of tipsy (4-5 beers apeice) and this morning I woke up with a hangover and had a HUGE panic attack.

It was really weird the way it started out because one moment I was just sitting there (hungover) and having a cup of coffee while I sat at the computer and then all of a sudden, I got in this kind of twighlight-zone trance where I'm kind of scared and looking all around me and at my arms and stuff and then I had this weird feeling like I was about to go crazy or something and my lips started trembling and then I started thinking I had some disease and might die on and so on until I had a full-blown panic attack and that's when I made a dash for my bottle of Lorazepam.

Since I've had anxiety/panic attacks before after drinking alcohol, I was just wondering if this was "normal" for those of us who suffer from anxiety or if I am just an "unusual case".

Thank you.
So true!. Well, I was dry all day yesterday and today I had 3 beers and then ate dinner. I also did'nt take my Lorazepam this morning so by the time the alcohol wore off, I was going through benzo withdrawl and at the same time I was having a lot of anxiety coming down off of the alcohol. I felt all spacy and surreal and a few times I tried to say something and it was like a person who's just had a stroke and the words won't come out (very scary!). I just felt out of it and a few times I felt like I was going to just fall over on the floor.

Another strange thing is the the tip of the "pointer" finger on my left hand has been itching like crazy all day for some reason. I killed a mosquito in the bathroom today and it it was full of blood (my blood??). I sometimes wonder if a lot of my problems are really caused by anxiety. I thought the tingling in my right arm and some of my other problems were caused by anxiiety until I had a MRI/C-spine and they said I had 2 compressed disks that were "drying out" and some other kind of problem (I can't remember) but they said it would affect my right arm (which it has). I'm sure a lot of my problems are anxiety-related but not all of them.

Then to add insult to injury, I drank a glass of Sprite and it triggered a major bout of IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) so I was cramping and all torn up inside for a good 45 minutes. Yuk, what a day.

On top of that, I'm finding it more and more difficult lately to find any good in people because it seems like almost everyone you talk to on the phone, grocery store, etc goes out of their way to try and be rude and nasty. What's wrong with people these days?.

Well, I can't think of much else to say at the moment. I just took a Lorazepam a few minutes ago. My finger is still itching like crazy which leads to all kinds of worrying, etc.

Thank's for listening - Lonely Traveler
