I've had a relapse of a neuropsychaitric syndrome I had 20 years ago: Anxiety, derealization, executive functioning issues, no concentration, it's like I'm in a catatonic anxious daze that causes me to lose touch with reality most of the day. Oh and hands and eyeballs tremor (yes, eyeballs, opthomalogist has confirmed this is in fact happening but can;t explain it). I fully check out when people try to engage me in conversation.

Alcohol put me in full remission. I can focus better, I can socialize, even the mild weakness in my limbs and tremor is fully gone. BTW I did a home detox 3 weeks ago and have been alcohol free since then, not even craving it. I'm just craving the remission state it put me in.

This is why I'm fascinated by bleauberry's dopamine dysfunction theory. Diazepams don't help at all, so it must be some mechanism of alcohol that's nothing to do with GABA. Either dopamine or opioid system.
