Question about PAWS health anxiety

Postby Cthompson21 » Tue Oct 08, 2019 2:26 am

I'm fourteen months in for weed PAWS and I have found i'm sensitive to a lot of substances. Namely caffeine nicotine antidepressants and alchohol, which I have refrained from using. Antibiotics also affect me now, for some reason, they give me bad anxiety and make my vision worse. I guessing the same would go for different drugs like opiod painkillers. My fear right now is what if become seriously ill with something and I need a treatment that will affect PAWS in some way. For example if I need surgery, can I handle anesthesia? Or will it be bad for PAWS and make me start over? I'm scared about these things, I feel as though I'm one illness away from destroying the progress I've made, or that something bad will happen and make everything way worse because I need some sort of treatment that that affects my fragile nervous system. Just some thoughts. Feedback appreciated!

Cthompson, remember your PAWS is not just weed PAWS, I am sure it's Adderall PAWS as well. You can handle everything someone else can. it will obviously be tough because you are more sensitive but you will not start from day zero again. But you see that's not your worst problem, you problem is you're living in the "what if"... Even if you are to start from day zero tomorrow then make the most of today, enjoy as much as you can now. Just take care of your health and illnesses will be at bay, you're still young so surgeries are unlikely unless you are not careful.
