Again, this is your panic disorder kicking in. If you're not feeling well go home and get some rest.

I know the feeling all too well. Have you started your meds yet? You will get better. There is hope! Also did you order the book we talked about yet?

Well, hello Johnnie.

I'm smiling because in our last communication I was preparing to go to rest for the night and suggested you find ways to distract yourself a little at a time in order to get through the night. Never thought you would be going to a club! :)

Were you able to drive there ok?Or did you with someone.

Ok, if the anxiety was really getting to you and you felt you were the point where it was escalating to be unmanageable, I would have removed myself from the crowded club. Since it is about 6 a.m.now in New York, you made your decision about what to do long before this reply. Want did you decide to do?

If you are on medication, hopefully, you weren't drinking anything containing alcohol. Many meds contain warnings about that on their labels. Alcohol can really screw with the effects of many meds.

Until the anxiety started to become bad, did you enjoy yourself? I find that sometimes crowds of people make me very anxious, I hang in to see if I can manage with the anxiety and am proud of myself when I can.....finding someone who is friendly enough to chat a bit, etc. But after an hour of that, I usually get away from the people so I won't feel like I need a Xanax to calm down.

Getting anxious around a group or crowd of people is not uncommon. I hope you were able to go home and get some sleep when you did leave.

But while you were there, did you get a chance to dance?:) Or was this a sports bar or a neighborhood hang out where there was no dance floor?

Were you able to sleep when you got home?

Johnnie...I just read your response to another reply by a member of this forum. You did leave, but you also mentioned you STILL haven't started your meds that your doctor prescribed.

We've talked about this almost every day now for over a week.You aren't "playing" me, are you? That means you tell me what you think you want me to hear, but not doing what you say you are. If you had been taking your meds, maybe the nervousness at the club might not have been as bad.....to you catch my drift?

The people here at this venue are always willing to listen and help. Maybe you need to tell them you aren't taking your rx when you reach out when your nervousness is causing problems. That might help them in their replies.

Hope you were able to sleep and that today is better. Hang in, and remember someone is always here for you.

OK, Johnnie,

Last night you learned you still have anxiety and maybe alcohol doesn't help you. It's a drug just like any other drug. and it can have side effects.

But you did get out for awhile. That's cool. Crowds and a lot of stimulation get to me after awhile, too.

Again, think about taking the drug PRESCRIBED to help you.

Johnnie,

Read your post. I can't understand it. You probably typed it too fast.

What do you mean by "drink or anything"?

Johnnie,

If you're asking if you take your medication but also advised not to drink alcohol, that is probably the case...ask your doctor about this.

Because anxiety triggers certain "chemicals" in your body, and alcohol can also trigger similar or the same "chemicals", alcohol can really set off your anxiety....like it did last night.

So if your meds are to help you deal with anxiety, great! Take it as prescribed by your doctor.

You found out last night alcohol alone just makes your anxiety worse!

SO WHY WOULD YOU WANT TO DRINK AT ALL, EVEN IF YOU DID NOT HAVE MEDICATION?

Trust me coming from a person with derealization I understand the unreal feeling and disconnect. It's a horrible feeling.

However if I can suggest it would be best to stay away from any kind of alcohol, recreational drugs and caffeine. That kind of stuff until your anxiety is under control.

Paxil is a very good medication with great success, if it happens not to work for you there are plenty others. They are safe and the doctor's would be monitoring you. Why haven't you been taking the medication?

There are concerns for all meds, it is no different than needing medication for diabetes or blood pressure problems stuff like that. It well help and make toy feel better. Yes there are still ups and downs trust. But it's better than no help.

Yes they are daily. You ate not supposed to drink with them. You have to decide what is more important NOT feeling anxious and sick or drinking with friends etc. For me it was an easy answer.

If you start doing better the Dr can ween you off slowly. They do the same for other ailments and you need to find off the meds
