Am I dying? Please someone help

Posted , 3 users are following.

I really hope someone can help me because I feel like I'm losing my mind. And I kindly ask that no one gives me a lecture, I know what iv done is totally irresponsible and I'm an absolute idiot.

Four days ago I went out with a friend for some drinks. I ended up horribly drunk, to the point where I woke up and had no recollection of the last few hours of the evening. After I'd spoken to her I managed to piece together that she had left me in the club after an argument. Luckily for me she had bumped into another of our friends on her way home, they went for drinks then this other friend came looking for me. He found me asleep in the club and put me in a taxi home. I can't believe how irresponsible I was and what a stupid situation I put myself in. I completely hate myself.

The next day, I understandably felt horrendous, but I went to work as normal and just prayed for the end of the day. That night I had a small nose bleed.

The next day I still felt ropey, then as I was getting ready for work I got the worst nosebleed of my life. It was gushing everywhere (probably not helped by the fact that i was in a complete state of panic).

It is now four days on and my head is still swimming, I have a constant headache, dizziness and I feel like I'm going to vomit. I haven't even got dressed all weekend.

I should probably mention that iv suffered with anxiety for the last ten years or so. I take 150mg of sertraline daily because I have horrific health anxiety. And now I'm absolutely convinced that I'm dying. I don't know what to do with myself, I feel slightly suicidal.

Someone please help.

    There is nothing wrong with you! The more you feel like ur getting worse the worse it will get! Just take deep breaths, i've heard nose bleed is normal in severe anxiety, but if you still don't believe me then u can go to your gp and ask her. But i would recommend you start therapy feeling suicidal even if it is just slightly is not good. You can talk to someone, it will help you.

    There are thousands of people who go through this, if you dont want to start therapy you can talk to someone who knows what ur going through, someone with anxiety who can understand you, but the more you think that ur dying the worse ur anxiety will get, go for a walk every morning, do breathing exercises daily, talk to someone and if u can, stop drinking for a bit, till you feel better and not suicidal.

    Hope it helps you.

    P.s you can pm me if you ever want to talk

    Have you been doing drugs to cause the nosebleeds? You seemed to skip over the cause of those?

    Thank you so much, that really has helped. And thank you very much for your offer of private messaging. Have you ever experienced anything like this? Do you think it is just a hangover?

    And no, I don't take drugs. I tried a couple of things in my teens but nothing for years x

    I tried drugs twice in my life in my teens, I'm nearly 30. I have no concerns about drugs, unless they were taken unwillingly.

    I think you should go get an exam at the doctors or urgi center. You over drank and mixed it with the medicine and that does have reprecussions.  Not a preachy thing a real thing. You also are mosy like dehydrated. Sometimes an iv is needed to rehydrate the body.

    Here is the preachy part...

    Avoid alcohol completely while you take Zoloft. Even a single drink can interact with your medication and cause unwanted side effects. The combination of alcohol and Zoloft can cause side effects, and drinking alcohol can make your depression worse
