No one even responded to my depression post the other day ... :( sheesh... I miss my old support forum, sniff.... :(...... well I drank again two nights ago, life is getting tough... but I'm once again off it. Day 2 without booze and Day 2 of cutting my drug dosage down one pill. Today though over the hangover, I feel nervous, semi afraid, anxious, confused and just darn right guilty and dumb ;\... I don't know, I feel aimless and odd... maybe that L Tyrosine that I take for my "neurons" is messing with my head ... I don't feel right ;\.

Hi, Paulos,

I'm sorry you didn't get any responses to your previous post. I know that can be discouraging.

I'm glad to hear you have gone without drinking for the past two days. But why are you trying to cut your medications down? Did your doctor recommend or approve of this? It sounds like you are trying too many different things that may not work for you. Maybe if you try to cut out the drinking and focus on the proper dosage of meds you will have better results. I hope I'm not sounding "preachy" about the drinking. I'm just not sure the combination of drinking and the meds is healthy.

Don't feel dumb and aimless; maybe you just haven't found the right combination of meds and/or dosage for you. Perhaps your doctor can help you with that.

I hope you have a better day.

Dear Paulos,

I am sorry no one answered your post  re could be they are at a loss for words of wisdom for you but know that they did read your post.

You seemed to keep cycling in the same direction over and over.  The drinking = hangover= depression and anxiety and then you post you have stopped for 2 days........ Add in the Vicodin and yes you are going to feel like your nervous, semi afraid, anxious, confused and just darn right guilty and dumb.  Dumb you are not.

It feels to me like you have not committed to giving up the drugs or the alcohol yet. 

I really feel like perhaps a rehab facility may be your best choice to help you get off your drugs and alcohol.  I know you will never stop with the drinking for good until you make the decision "No More"

Here is a link for you to the Drug and Alcohol Rehab Services site:

I would like to see your next post be about seeking help for your problems.  You are trying to kick two habits on your own and this rarely works without some professional help.

Please do seek help.

I often am at a loss of what to say to help others. It does seem to me that Kitt's advise is sound. Somethings we need help to overcome. I hope you get the help you need and are on the road to feeling better.
