Alcohol

So ever since a year ago when i started on my meds i cant drink. Like i hate drinking it makes me anxious and i feel like i get drunk off a sip( even though im not on meds anymore) . my friend got married today and i had half a glass of wine. I feel soooooo anxious and dizzy. Like i was driving home and i had such bad depersonalization. I felt like i was in a dream . It kind of felt like the dream i had last night and like i was reliving it which is so scary when youre driving. I kept wanted to run out of my car. Im just afraid of everything now it seems😞😞

  • Hi shrs3,

    If you feel like drinking makes you feel worse definitely do not drink! Sometimes we have to make sacrifices no matter how hard they seem! Your sanity and wellbeing is more important! Your brain will look for any way to cause panic so try to stay away from things that can make you anxious! Stay strong please come back and update on how you're feeling! Best of luck 😊

  • Yea i guess what im trying to say is before i kind of psyched myself out about drinking alcohol i was fine with it. It actually took away some anxiety when i was out with my friends. But now it just makes me more anxious. It made me more anxious after my dr. was telling me not to drink on anti depressants because it can intensify the effects of alcohol. So now everytime i drink, even now that I'm not on the meds, i remember what he said and i start to feel really anxious and dizzy.

  • Okay sounds like typical anxiety, you have to tell yourself I am not on medication your brain now uses what your doctor told you as a way to cause panic and anxiety. It's definitely going to be hard but it can be done you just really have to convince yourself & do you see a therapist?

  • Yes so ive been kind of drinking a couple sips here and there and telling myself not to freak out lol, but my mind keeps winning. I do see a therapist but only once a week. Since we have so much that we already talk about I kinda have to out some things, such as that, on the back burner for right now.

  • Okay I totally get you, well you're trying and that's all that matters. I also only see my therapist once a week and we always have plenty to talk about but do bring it up and let him/her know how you're feeling!

  • Hello....sorry you're having "trouble drinking".....guess you meant alcohol, right? Well, it is a very serious drug, and don't take a chance drinking if you know it screws with your head.

    If you're off your meds now, with a doctor's help, that doesn't mean you can tolerate alcohol. Be kind to your mind and body.

  • So like i replyed up there lol, i was fine with drinking alcohol before i kind of psyched myself out about it. It actually took away some anxiety when i was out with my friends. But now it just makes me more anxious. It started when my dr. was telling me not to drink on anti depressants because it can intensify the effects of alcohol. So now everytime i drink, even now that I'm not on the meds, i remember what he said and i start to feel really anxious and dizzy.

  • Good. For whatever the reason, your body and mind aren't tolerating alcohol. Great...that will be one addiction you won't need to worry about. Alcohol IS A DRUG. Take care of yourself.

  • alcohol does the same thing to me now that i have derealisation! i don't know what it is. the worst part is that i'm 21 and i'm always going out with my friends to concerts/events and i have to sit around while literally EVERYONE else gets plastered. i know it's a drug yadayada but for once i just want to be young and carefree like everyone else

  • Uhhh i know exactly! Like i used to be fine with it now i hate even being around it.
