after seeing my psychologist today he basicaly said he doesnt picture me coping back at uni. i can’t even bare the thought of finding my glasses, which are in my room somewhere that upsets and makes me panic and scared (god im so pathetic), so how can i leave all my family and go back 300 miles up north? so ive taken the big decision not to go… its the scariest thing and im so ashamed, but the important thing is to get me well again…..September 25, 2013 at 1:33 pm#163586AnonymousInactive
maya in order for me to get and stay sober I have had to make my recovery the number one priority in my life, every thing else has fallen into place very well because of that.
I understand today that if I put one single thing in front of my sobriety I may very well drink again which will lead to me losing what ever I put in front of my sobriety and a lot of other things.
Did your psychologist suggest anything else to do?September 25, 2013 at 1:42 pm#163590AnonymousInactive
hes given me anti anxiety drugs and sleeping pills. he just doesnt advise me to go back to uni.. he doesnt know i stoppd going to aa, but im determined to stop drinking soon… i want to be able to. people who dont have this just don’t understand…… i have to ask anyone from the uk, did u follow hannah’s anorexia story in hollyoaks? i’ll explain why…September 25, 2013 at 1:57 pm#163584AnonymousInactive

This is one of the reasons psychologist have a very hard time helping alcoholics, when we are still drinking we do not follow suggestions they give us, we do not tell them the truth.
How in the world can a psychologist help a person that does not follow thier suggestions and lies to them?
I am an alcoholic and it was not until I was able to be honest with myself and the world that I was even able to start get better. I also had to learn how to follow suggestions made to help me out even if I did not like them.
In order to get sober I had to be willing to go to any length to get and stay sober.September 25, 2013 at 4:02 pm#163581AnonymousInactive
Your med’s might be a dangerous mix with alcohol.
Please ask your doctor about this.
Not drinking helps so many issues
the sooner you quit…the better.

Many medications increase anxiety. Alcohol can contribute to it also. The last year of my drinking the only time I was not in panic and anxious was when I was dead drunk ready to pass out. I had become so overwhelmed with life. My life had truely become unmanageable. The only thing I have found that eased the insanity was to stop drinking. I am one who has tried many other options but they failed to work.
but the important thing is to get me well again…..
You hit the nail on the head. That is the most IMPORTANT thing right now. The question then is how do you get well again? How willing are you to do what it takes to get well? Are you tired of running in circles and chasing the bottle? The best way to start your road to recovery is to stop drinking, continue to go to your therapist (be honest with him), see a Dr., and find a recovery program that works for you. Personally, I prefer a recovery program that offers me support and fellowship. I need all the help I can get.
I sincerely hope that you are ready to get the help by helping yourself and picking up the tools in front of you that will fix the problem. Good luck and keep posting.September 25, 2013 at 4:26 pm#163591AnonymousInactive

Hon this is the insanity of alcoholism that is spoken of in step 2!
Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.
Hon I was scared to death to get sober, my disease had me convinced that if I quit drinking I would go crazy because the only thing my mind understood was drinking, drinking was my solution!!!
Drinking was making me crazy & I knew that not drinking would drive me crazy!!!
In order for me to start on the road back to sanity I had to accept the fact that once I put even a single beer into me I lost all power over alcohol and that when I was drinking my life was/became unmanageable!
I ask again Maya, are you powerless over alcohol?
Can you manage your life while you are drinking?September 25, 2013 at 4:46 pm#163589AnonymousInactive
no i didnt i cant do it
Maya if you can not tell the doctor the truth then why are you wasting your money and the doctors time?
Do you think the doctor can help you if you lie to him?
The beginning of the solution to your problem is being honest, no one can help you until you are honest.September 25, 2013 at 4:52 pm#163585AnonymousInactive
hey maya, i understand how hard you are struggling right now, but taz and everyone else is right. you have to be honest with your doctor. if you can’t trust that doctor, then find one you can.
what you’re doing now with meds and that amount of alcohol is a real dangerous combination. plus, you have to get this off your chest with someone that can support you at home, not just here on the boards.
we care, maya. we want you to get ALL the help you deserve. please keep posting here and find a support group in your community. a young person such as yourself has your whole life ahead.

Here is a link about a 20 year old guy
and Yes! this can happen to you too.
Not attending uni next semester
is a minor glitch.
You do need medical help that knows the truth.
