I've suffered with anxiety and depression for about 10 years - in everyday life I have learnt to cope with the majority of my symptoms and have accepted this is just a part of me. However after a night drinking I will shoot awake after a few hours sleep with my heart pounding,crying uncontrollably, I feel absolutely worthless and have thoughts of self harm which some times I act upon. These feelings absolutely terrify me. It doesn't happen every time I drink but happens more when I have been drinking with a group of people and I have wondered if I have a form of social anxiety? (I constantly worry what people think of me and that I may have offended somebody) after the panic attack has subsided I will then feel extremely low for days after. I do enjoy drinking but the way I feel afterwards is really not worth it and think I am going to avoid drinking from now on. Does anyone else suffer from this?
