Yes. Scary stuff. I will, young and healthy enough to battle this. But holy moly is it as awful as it sounds. This community has helped me identify symptoms in the body and be with them. My self awareness isn’t quite what it use to be but I am doing okay.

45 days of COVID19 symptoms finally ended. Funny enough, I found a peer c19 support group to get me through the last month, just like I found this place! I will say, the delirium I experienced for about 10 days was comparable to some of my worst days during WD. But it was oddly familiar, and I learned to deal. In a way, what I'm saying is that I've grown past WD. I'm outside the windows and waves period. I started my taper over a year ago, and I'm coming up on my one-year anniversary of my last dose of sertraline. I'm a changed person for the better. I regret taking psych drugs, but it is what it is. I'm still mad about it, but in a calm, adult sort of way. I've learned to avoid rage and outbursts. I keep tweaking my supplement schedule, and I'm really happy about that. My diet has been a significant improvement, too. Good gut health results in good mental health. Time has been the great healer, but there's other tricks to it, too. I cherish this community and the shared knowledge.

Okay, question.... I’m feeling significant inflammation and maybe swelling in my gut/abdominen. I thought it was pancreatitis, then kidney issues, and now I’m wondering if it’s withdrawal symptoms. Like hyperawareness to a part of my body I have long neglected. It does not help I had GI issues for 2 months. My diet has been good but my drinking recently spiked with the world trending towards chaos.

 

any thoughts on this? I’ll reach out to my doc Monday, but any thoughts or advice for now?

Sounds like you have a gut problem, maybe from coronavirus. You'll have to talk to a doctor.

 

If you continue to drink, we can't help you with your psychiatric drug-related issues, sorry. You're making your own problems.

thanks alto, I agree. It’s been a lot of sobriety (just not recently). and I know that’s what I need to trend towards permanently. Same with marijuana.
