Update on my relapse. If can remember I relapse after 3 months off alcohol, and been drinking for about 2 months. Saw my consellor yesterday...options were.
- home detox with medical assistance - will not authorise this as it was too risky!
- inpatient detox for 3 days -not authorised
- detox centre funded by nhs -3 months waiting list
So tbe above were not authorised, so back up plan slow reduction...I was really dissappointed and down about yhis.
So I took things in my own hands, I stopped justed at 2pm, thinking I can handle the withdrawal process. How very wrong was I. Worse night of my life, sickness, diarrhoea, cramps, sweats adonimal and chest pain , muscle spasms and hiloscination. Was so bad I thought I was having a heart attack, so 999 out at 5am.after several test ecg etc and hour monitoring paramedic check with hospital and agreed to go to doctors first thing to either see she can fast track me or prescride medicine support. We decided on the later and on a tranquilliser chlordiazepoixide for 5 days, twice daily visits to doctors to monitor.
So, in summary, if u are in similar situation dont do it with medical intervension
