Re: I don't undestand what is happening to me

I just wanted to say, don't take xanax and have a drink at the same time. Xanax and alcohol don't mix! Your doctor shouldn't presribe you Xanax and recommend you have a drink to relax. But you...

OK, but now remember, that's the worst outcome. 99.999999% you don't have ALS. Think about that. You're focusing on the .000000001% that you might. Look at the good side, don't stress and worry...

Re: Night Sweats?

I used to get these too, but I think it's part of anxiety. I started having them soon after I started having panic attacks, and it was before I was on any kind of medication.
