41cdays anxiety and insomnia
« on: March 16, 2022, 07:10:05 am »
I have anxiety since quitting and had to drink to stop fear.  I had insomnia I slept from 6 to 10 or 11.
I read about lemon balm for anxiety and I am going to get some tomorrow.  I need to visit my brother and sister.

The lemon balm made me really tired yesterday and I slept from 9 to 4.
It is not working for anxiety.
  I took 1 t.  Maybe I should take more.
I hate waking up so early.
I miss the restotil and Ativan as it's the only thing that makes me feel better.

The lemon balm doesn't work like a benzo like I read on here.
I kind of feel sick from taking it.
I am having anxiety.

If the lemon balm is making you feel ill, I'd discontinue it but what you're feeling could be typical symptoms of withdrawal and recovery.  Sometimes its tough to tell what is really happening.

The lemon balm tincture gave me a panic attack twice this morning.  I had to drink wine to stop the panic.  My sister said to not take the tincture, but to drink the tea, but I am afraid it will make me panic.

You are never going to feel better unless you stop drinking alcohol

I'm not sure why you're continuing to take the lemon balm if it's causing you to panic, I think your sister is giving you good advice.

Are you still going to AA and NA, the people in those rooms can help you if you share what you're going through.

My brother let me visit again and since then I have been sleeping better and less anxiety.  I have been taking 1 or 2 sleepeeze. I woke up at 330 last night and took sleepeeze.

I realize I gave only been able to cope at home since my mom died with the sleeping pills.  I need some pills to cope again
