    Been following this thread for a long time.

    I firmly believe neuro reprogramming and changing patterns is a great help, probably moreso than mainstream psychology in my opinion. It's something I have been doing for a long time and I would like to think has helped a lot of people.

    If anyone would like a chat about this, completely confidential and no money involved feel free to drop me a message. Be more than happy to meet up and pass on some tools.

    Interesting.
    This is still going on and I think it's actually getting worse since I know it's going to happen now when I go places. Can feel light headed when I get out the car to nip into the shops. It's weird and annoying.

    Edit: I lost my mum suddenly at the end of last year and I know she never got over her anxiety. I'm not sure if my loss is making this worse or I just overthink it more now.

    I'm sorry for your loss, mate. Losing your Mum suddenly the way you did must have been really difficult for you. Anxiety is incredibly common, and is nothing to be embarrassed about. I've read that anxiety is simply a sane person's reaction to an insane world. As someone who suffered from acute anxiety when I was younger, if you think it would be of help, it may be of benefit to you to speak to a doctor about what you're feeling. Some are really good at dealing with anxiety related symptoms. Some aren't so good, but if you find someone you can talk to and who can help, then hopefully they can help you get through this. I know it's hard to believe when you're suffering anxiety, but often the symptoms pass or diminish over time. This is what happened for me. Anyway, I wish you all the best, mate, as do all of your fellow Celts.

    Sorry for your loss mate.
    Have you spoken to https://www.cruse.org.uk/?gclid=EAIaIQobChMIhdiAl8_E4wIVhbTtCh2sxwTqEAAYASAAEgJEufD_BwE. They are bereavement specialists.
    Talking to them may not only help you grieve but also may help, if you mention it to them, with your anxiety.

    I'm on 150mg sertraline because I'm a very nervous *. It has worked wonders but not so much this year because I've been drinking so often. I probably should go teetotal cos seems like just 1 pint and I fall into a 5 day hair of the dog loop haha.

    I agree it would be best if you give up the booze whilst on Sertraline.
    Just looked online about side effects on mixing the 2 and it says:

    "You should avoid or limit the use of alcohol while being treated with sertraline.Alcohol can increase the nervous system side effects of sertraline such as dizziness, drowsiness, and difficulty concentrating. Some people may also experience impairment in thinking and judgment."

    Hope you feel better when you do.

    He also find a way to get rid of the sertraline along with treating his body to what it needs. Nourish it with what we evolved on for hundreds of thousands of years(or more). Find out what's best to eat for ones nervous system and fill your body with it along with ridding of all * he's eating and drinking. Try to rid of all toxins that's going through his system right down to the toothpaste he's using. His body is full of unwanted * that's * his nervous system up. Sounds a simple solution However there's to many people out there who find it impossible or are just looking a quick fix. If quick fixes worked, we'd all be walking about healthy and happy as a pig in *!
