... my heart is racing & I can barely form sentences. I really want to quit drinking (& did for 6 months in rehab) but its the only thing that calms me down. I have racing thoughts & sometimes I'm o.k. but sometimes I get so depressed & don't want to leave my house. I think I have ADD & may be bi-polar. I have an appt. to see a psychologist Monday, but what can I do until then? I am freaking out & feel like I really NEED a drink! I have prayed. Does anybody have any advice on what I can do? I have been self- medicating w/ alcohol for about 20 years & it's time to stop. I was going to AA mtgs., but I would nearly have an anxiety attack every time I went. I know I am having one right now. Barely hanging on
