Welcome Nonia. Come on in - the water's fine. And from what I see, a helluva lot of strong swimmers here. I'm just over a week sober - still doggpaddling.

Glad you found this place.

Hi Nonia


what kind of news are you waiting for?

I dunno - they may not be ringing you back urgently because they're busy, or they forgot, or the news is nothing to worry about, or they just haven't called back...yet?

You're more than a drunk, NONIA.
In fact, I doubt drunk NONIA is anything even resembling the real NONIA.
Alcoholism tends to steal everything from people, including their self-identity.

I used to look at myself as a drunken, pathetic loser. Nothing more. Now I look at myself as a former drunk no longer stuck in the cycle of active alcoholism that can be anything he wants to be. Not to mention a human being worthy of happiness, friendship, and (most importantly) sobriety

You'll get through this. The doctor will help you. If you are feeling very terrible, it may help to go to the ER.

You are on your way to living happy joyous and free. The anxiety early on is overwhelming but it gets better, I can not emphasize that enough. Stay strong.

There's a wide variety of symptoms from alcohol withdrawal Nonia. All of that - including the dread fear and anxiety - is familiar to me, tho not the hyponatremia.

If you think you need medical help, like someone else suggested, the ER might be an option?

when was your last drink?

If my pulse gets over 100 I need a drink .
Hyponatremia is common in drinkers . I has the same symptom of being intoxicated .
