wish it would stop

I am not recovered from anxiety/DP/DR but I'm doing a little better with alcohol. I started working out vigorously 4 or 5 times a week and that has helped. I think if I stop working exercising that things might hit rock bottom again.
Actually, rock bottom for me, when all things are considered, might be now. Now not as in today, in particular, but now as in the past two years.
DP/DR along with severe anxiety and agoraphobic tendencies keeps me inside a lot. I just need to get the [email protected] to call a staffing firm so I can get another halfway decent job. I had a pretty good job for the longest time but then I was laid off and have been scared and anxious to interview since.
What you are experiencing is a phase. It will pass. Try to put some things in place so that you slowly-but-surely are poised to recover. I went to AA although I believe I made the decision to quit because I gained 65 pounds -- I believe most of the extra weight was due to hardcore drinking.
Now, some time later, I've lost the 65 pounds and am back where I was 7 or 8 years ago.
If you have any specific questions please post them here and I will be happy to listen and offer you any suggestions. I'm glad you posted your message because I can certainly relate to both the drinking and also the not doing much part.
