Okay so today I decided to finally take a Diazepam,it's strange. I do feel my body is moving slower and calmer but it must be physiologically creating this nervousness. I also pushed myself to go to a shopping centre alone and every time I felt dizzy,faint or weak, I just breathed in deep and told myself I'm okay.
It's this constant 'checking in' with ones self I find most torturous . I can barely remember the time when I was this carefree happy person who actually enjoyed spending alone time, now when I'm out I have this dizzy feeling the ground is moving and I need to get back to my safe place or person. Does anyone else relate to any of this?
As it's been hours since taking Diazepam, I am feeling slightly more relaxed whilst writing this and feeling a sense of achievement in going out alone...
If anyone has any coping mechanisms I would LOVE to hear them. Thanks in advance
