Hi all, I am hoping that I am not going to find I am alone with this! I first started having anxiety attacks a few years ago, but not on a regular basis. I have recently been having them a lot more frequently, especially after drinking when they are heavily exaggerated! I wake up feeling anxious and as if I am not really human. I get this overwhelming feeling that I am going to black out, lose control and hurt somebody! I have to keep telling myself that I know this feeling and that each time I feel this it doesn't happen and eventually passes, but to have to deal with this so regularly is very energy consuming and is making me feel really unwell! At the time I feel as if it won't pass and I convince myself that this is how I am permanently going to feel for the rest of my life (I know it sounds silly!!!) This makes me feel suicidal!

I feel extremely paranoid when I have these attacks and have it in my head that I am going to go blind; I am fixated with this!! I am traveling at the moment and am having a social time, which often involves drinking and being on a backpacker budget I do indulge in cheaper alcohol, like the rest of my fellow travelers. I know the thought of going blind stems from the fact I know that cheap alcohol has been linked to people going blind, but this is extremely rare! I am young, sociable and do enjoy drinking, but I am coming to the sad realization that I might have to give it up :-(

I would love to hear from anyone that can relate to how I feel, so I know that I am not going mad!! I absolutely hate feeling like this :-( HELP!
