I'm new here. Been on for a month. I'm a month clean and i still get panic attacks when out in public. Clonidine is the only thing I'm still taking to help me with that but I still have it...it just help take that edge off. Just driving out to see my doctor was really tough but you just gotta push yourself to do it. I just try to do and get what I need as quick as I can then I rush home. Maybe ask your doctor if they have any med that could help calm you down but not make you drowsy?
You will be fine. Someone will come along soon to help u out more.
All the best.
HI well it was a panic anxiety attack...it will freak you out but it wont hurt you and is very very common wile detoxing it can last a wile but will go away your not going to be this way for long so hang in there try going at a different time of day make sure your blood sugar is ok by eating b/4 you go so many people over look this and it can make all the differences try having some camimill tea b/4 going and take a friend if you can other then that you just have to push threw it and know it will get better....also remember to pray for strength b/4 you go.....Gnarly
Thank you. Seems like the only friend I have right now is my dog and they won't let him in the store. haha. Right now not being able to go to the store doesn't seem so important. Having a really bad night. Taking all my concentration not to lose my mind. Even trying to sit here and type is just too much...
Read your entire story ten times tonight. Know that it is helping me get through this.
HI well try this.....go out to the couch...put on some soft music and roll up in a blanket....try controlled breathing...inhail and say relax exhail and say sleep slow your breathing down and you will go into a state of deep rest you probable wont sleep and that ok but you will go into a deep rest and this will help...your going to make it here take it 1min at a time 1 truns into 5 into 30 then into hours this will not last forever just dont pick up no mater what........Gnarly
Also, you may want to bring a friend with you tomorrow. Is there anyone you can call? Listen to gnarly, concentrating on your breathing, slow, controlled breaths can go a long way.
I'm so happy to hear that my story can give one the strength to get through this.
I know you can!
Thank you so much! I did what you said and I slept for almost 3 hours. Woke up feeling pretty yucky but I'm ok. Looked at my tracker and it officially says 4 days clean. It inspired me. I am going to find N/A meeting today, not waiting till monday as originally planned. I live in Upstate N.Y. and it is suppose to be high 40's today so I am going to force myself outside today. Going for a long walk in the country with my faithful four-legged friend. Going to go get some of the suggested stuff like protein shakes and B vitamins later.
