I have had anxiety for many years. I would say over the past year or so, anytime I drink, I seem to be sad the next day. Last night was my 15th class reunion. I had a great time and I drank. Today I feel a little sad. I didn't do anything inappropriate or make an ass out of myself. I feel like I'm so hard on myself and I can't stop.
Just wondering if others out there feel the same way. It's like, if I can't remember every little detail of the night I am drinking, I start to get panicky. I don't know why I have to be this way. I have OCD and have worked on it w/ therapists over the years.
I enjoy myself so much when I am out drinking with friends, but the next day is always tough. Even if I don't have a hangover, I just feel lousy. I know some might say, don't drink then, but I don't do it very often. I guess I don't know why in the last year l have become so critical of myself after a night out w/ friends.
I also am wondering if I suffer from depression if I get sad on these days or if it's just my OCD and anxiety making me feel sad.
