Anxiety Disorder or PAWS?

Postby dresco089 » Tue Apr 27, 2021 3:24 pm

Please hear out my story, any advice or if anyone experienced anything similar would be great to know.

The few weeks before I quit, I started getting leg pains/ tingles everytime I smoked, that feeling even lingered when I was sober. One night I was smoking and the pain/tingle really intensified to the point that I passed out and followed by convulsions which according to my friends it really looked like a seizure. I quit cold turkey after that for 10 days. I had really bad headaches and insane anxiety. I smoked again and had a similar reaction, but this time it really freaked me out, I felt dissociated, everything around me looked distorted, colours and lights were dimmer, it felt like I watched the world from a POV movie. I didnt touch weed again and it's been 5 months now.

From what I've read, those leg pains that I had were apparently warning signs of anxiety, and that 'seizure' and dissociation event was due to the anxiety tipping over board. Can someone confirm that?

Since I last smoked I've been struggling with literally all the symptoms of anxiety: tinnitus, head pressure/headaches, chest pains, tinglings in limbs, hot skin, eye floaters.. and the worst indigestion. I literally could not eat anything nor digest it, had really bad constipation and bowel problems in general.

Month 3 into quitting, I went on lexapro 10 mg and I'm much better now. Anxiety is still here (headaches, floaters..) but somewhat under control. So it's been 2 months since I'm on medication, 5 months since I quit weed.

I know it's a very long post and i appreciate it if you made it til here. Am I experiencing PAWS or did I trigger a latent anxiety disorder from weed?

Anxiety is said to be a catalyst... the cause of... the symptoms.

“Anxiety” is a thought, which labels, feeling.

What if that label is removed, then what remains?

Feeling ‘itself’ remains, unfettered, unlabeled.

Then tinnitus, is not ‘hearing’, not ‘listening to’, feeling.

Headaches would be the overactivity of thought, or ‘thinking’, utilized to label and mask, feeling.

Labelling, and masking feeling, is suppressing feeling. Even “feeling”, is a label, which masks and veils the actuality of love. When love is no longer labeled, masked, veiled, love pours through into life, and there are certainly no more chest pains, just as a damn addresses the pressure of the water held behind it, so too are the labels upon the boundless love within.

Tingling limbs is a lack of oxygenation and circulation. Notice, tingling is a label which seems to define feeling, or, sensation, which is love. In ‘listening’ to the love directly, the message is of the suppression of emotion, which was met with or accomplished by the utilization of a substance, or generally speaking, ‘coping’.

The ‘hot skin’, arises in direct response to a self referential belief. A belief about yourself which isn’t true. The body is coping as well, essentially defending against the belief, similar to the immune system and a virus.

If you were to eat rubber and drink gasoline, you would experience the indigestion of that which is not alignment with the well being of the body. As you focus on thoughts which are not resonating, or in agreeable with your true nature, you also experience the body’s rejection of this, or, indigestion.

Tell that to someone who has stopped a coffee habit cold-turkey.

FYI: the "germ theory" has been proven false, and contrary to popular belief, we have no "immune system" but rather a number of defenses. The body has ten systems, and "immune" is not one of them.

So, you acknowledge bodily chemical actions for some things and not for others, such as the body detoxing (releasing toxins) from the time one has spent ingesting chemicals?

Notice you replaced labels, beliefs, with that of separate selves, and an assumption you are talking to someone who has not stopped coffee cold turkey.

Indeed. Body is a thought, made of mind. One can also be humble, meeting one where one is at, when the intention is to help rather than to know or be right.

Your answer makes no sense to me.

Much of allopathic medicine is based on the lies of "germ theory." And the "immune system" lie was brought out in the era of the AIDS hoax. Just passing along information here. Otherwise, your answer makes no sense to me.

Contemplation is great for sense making.
