Having a bad day

Last night I woke up with a racing heart and feeling hot. I got up and got a drink and put it down to 1 to many red wines. Got up this morning feeling tense across my chest and feeling my heart thumping. Tried really hard to keep calm and busy. Right now I feel I want to cry but can't feel very tense my body feels tired but my mind is focusing on the negative even though I'm telling myself calmly it's just anxiety.

I was fine yesterday although I think I might of been stressing over wether to have a drink or not. Wished I listened to my head now:(

Bless you Yummimummy. I hate drinking as I don't like not being in control! Also as I get older it takes longer to recover!

I cannot say if it was the red wine or not that made you anxious,try to take it easy and drink lots of water xxx

Hi

Hope you are feeling better now :)

I dont drink at all , but thats another story , I do no that it can work as a depressant & people that are depressed or have anxiety do seem to feel worse after

Never mind though next time I am sure you will listen to your head & these feelings will ease , try not to fear & accept how you feel , I no its not easy but if you can they will subside quicker , a good nights sleep tonight & you will feel better in the morning :)

Love
