Can the Amygdala repair itself?
Went through a "magical leek soup" detox that lasted a day and a half but I got so ridiculously sick with such a bad fever I had nearly pass out and it took a while for me to recover. I had eventually started drinking again, but only on occasion.
Since then I noticed that I was beginning to feel nauseas in filled-to-capacity movie theaters. At first I thought it was motion sickness as I do have that sometimes, and I would begin to have anxiety over whether I'd get sick during the movie, couldn't get out, and then my pulse began to race so hard and I became so hot that I removed my jacket. That's when my friend asked if I was dehydrated and had drunk before both times. When he heard that my pulse was racing he then asked if it was an anxiety attack. I thought that it couldn't possibly be that but then when I remembered that it accelerated when I began imagining different scenarios it really struck a chord.
This morning I ended up having the same reaction when I got into the train and was in a small space where I wasn't by the windows. I began to recognize it was a claustrophobic experience. NO TRAUMATIC EVENTS. Read about binge drinking + detox = damaged Amygdala.
