Good morning! My name is Lauren, and I'm a grateful, recovering alcoholic/addict. I remember when I was drinking all the time, I was taking Lorazepam all the time. I was so anxious. I always felt like I was gonna hae a panic attack. If I didn't have my vodka in time, if I didn't have a glass of wine in time, I was shaking, my chest felt like it was pressing so hard into my lungs, I was going to suffocate. I couldn't breathe. I had lost all faith...well not all faith. God was still with me, but I had turned my back. Once I got to the treatment facitility and they took my pills, I about freaked out. What was I going to do without them?!?!?! But I made it through, and haven't had one since. The restart of my faith ended my anxiety. Now I'm not saying I don't get frustrated and anxious about life's events, but NOWHERE near what I was before. I don't need medicine today. I am so blessed and so grateful! That's all I have for today! Have a great one!
I'm Lauren. Get inside the head of a recovering alcoholic/ addict.
