I went out Wednesday night and drank to excess -- I don't remember how I got home, and now 24 hours later I feel terrible, my hands are shaking, and I'm generally miserable. I think I'm only now starting to sober up.
Aside from being disappointed in myself, I'm worry about withdrawal. Can one get the DT's from a night's heavy, heavy drinking? I don't know how much I had, but I'm sure my BAL was in the .25 range. Does this mean I'm going to turn into a vegetable in a few days? Are things just going to get worse now? (I am reading about the delayed onset of the delirium tremens and it has me worried.)
I have been taking vitamin B supplements, so I hope that will fight off any neurological damage. But. again, does drinking that much alone mean I've done some brain damage, or would it be caused by something secondary to that (e.g., falling and hitting my head)?
I'm obsessing again ... :-(
