Tap Water

Hi,

Does anyone know if drinking tap water could be more harmful after benzo withdrawal? I don’t know if this is just my anxiety or if I should look into getting a water filter? I’m especially worried because I’m having issues with hydration right now where I feel constantly dehydrated so I’m drinking a lot. I’m not sure if it’s okay to be flooding my body with tap water day after day. Thanks!

Kooks add “summer” to list of 90,000,000 benzo withdrawal symptoms

What is worse than summer and benzo WD?

Can I get an “Amen”?!  :laugh:

Am I crazy or do hot, humid days just make EVERYTHING harder during benzo WD?  :idiot:

Starving for Ashton: “Eating makes my anxiety flare”

Eating makes my anxiety flare..

So yeah, just recognized this “symptom”. I feel good when I don’t eat, I feel content, like I’m really alive and powerful and not just a ghost. But after I eat, the anxiety, cog fog, confusion, dissociations, depression.. They all flare. I don’t really understand this, is this a symptom or is this just me? I’ve read that some people experience anxiety after they eat, but I’ve never been like that. I’ve always had good appetite (except in the morning) and could’ve eaten just about anything.

I haven’t been able to link it to any specific food, just eating normal and healthy (no junk- or fast foods). I’ve never had any regular eating times, now I’ve tried to maintain them somehow but not with success. It’s pretty weird and would like to know if someone has experience of this, like some particular food that does it to them..

Is there anyone else who could relate? It doesn’t bother me tho, except for the fact that I don’t know what has happened and why.

Peace!

Just like the title says I’ve been drinking a small glass of OJ in the AM for the past few days. Today I notice increased w/d symptoms like cog fog, dizziness, and a bit anxiety. I always drank a small amount daily but stopped several months ago because I suspected it was revving up my symptoms.

Anyone else experience this too? I know we can get food sensitivities maybe this is one for me. I hope it goes away. Does anyone know an explanation for this? Is it the VitaminC?

Thanks buddies.

Did vegetarianism cause my anxiety or make it worse?

I’ve thought about this one a lot. My anxiety really kicked into high gear in 2004 when two things happened. I started Prilosec and I stopped eating meat. Since 2008 I’ve been eating chicken and fish again (I can’t eat dairy, it wrecks my stomach). I think I’ve felt better, but all my levels are still low. Iron, B12, etc. It’s caused me to wonder again if I should consider eating red meat again. Thoughts?

Kooks fear mouthwash

Mouth wash! Ever had any issues?

I am trying to clean my mouth before applying a temporary filling . Most mouthwash have alcohol in them . I won’t be drinking it but is it safe to use without revving up symptom ?

Two cookies and ice cream cause savage wave

Has anyone had a window closed by eating the wrong foods?

I was having a great two day window and thought I was finally out of the woods. I went to a party, stayed away from the alcohol, but decided to indulge on food. Two cookies and ice cream to top it off. The next day some of my symptoms crept back in, not as bad as before, but very irritated. Mostly the physical symptoms, but along with that comes the mental aspect. Does this happen to anyone else? I should have known better. Ugh! ???
