I have dreadful health anxietymoosehead wrote:Winnie wrote:Hey moosemoosehead wrote:Yes, exactly what triggers me too.moosehead wrote:Anxiety and is very challenging to deal with.
I find excessive alcohol and lack of sleep make mine worse.
Problem is that i am borderline alcoholic and alcohol makes me not sleep...
Then i get anxiety which leads to depression..
So basically i am f...ed.... as there is no way i want to quit drinking....
Drinking and excercising are the only 2 hobbies ... i share with my wife...
Is all ok?
You appear to be in a conversation with yourself
Talking about drinking/ borderline alcoholic etc
Don’t give up on the drinking thread it’s very good
Alcohol is terrible for anxiety, try to cut back on it
Cheers for looking out for me. I don't drink work nights... ?
When i was younger i had no clue this monster called anxiety would hit me as i got older... started approx at 40 ish.
My anxiety is pretty much 100% centred around the well being of my daughters. My daughters are doing great. Uni degrees / careers and great fiancees... But over the years i had alot of anxiety over their uni work, cars, apartments... basically about their safety...
I guess they are my little girls... Now in their mid 20's i think i can relax and trust that they are safe and capable of taking care of themeselves.... My anxiety has decreased but i get older i feel like my resiliance is way lesss. I don't handle bad days or small problems as well as did younger... Maybe that is what aging does to us all ?
Did i mention..i drink to escape my anxiety... When i get drunk i no longer feel my anxiety...
Of course the next day i wake up and it is MUCH worse...
I wonder if this how people become alchoholics...... is it caused by their anxiety..... hmmmmmm ? Am i wrong ?
OK - rant over.
Thanks winnie for listening to me. People on PR always seem to be there for each other.....
Every lump bump or pain is cancer to me
I don’t drink a lot but when I do it does alleviate the thoughts about my health and I enjoy myself
But the next day my anxiety is through the stratosphere
You sound like a great dad
