i think you are just anxious about your circumstances right now. it is important to give yourself time to recover. that is one of the hardest things to do is calm down after a binge and forgive yourself for using again. put your mind at ease because your body will recover quite well on its own in due time. its the mental anguish which is so hard to get over. can you find someone you can confide in? talking things thru is a good strategy for relieving anxiety. i am in the same boat you are in right now. im an opiate addict and i spent the day yesterday shooting up my prescription for demerol capsules. i had a year clean. i feel very guilty and depressed over it but i cant change it. in NA there is the serenity prayer.

"God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change
courage to change the things I can and wisdom to know the difference."

try taking a deep breath and find a quiet place you can give yourself a moment of silence in. let this go and dont look back jess. putting yourself thru the pain and guilt only brings more pain.
