I have several questions I would grateful if anyone could help me with. I guess first I'm wondering if there's anyone at all who's ever used alcohol to temporarily defeat agoraphobia. I know this site has very few visitors, and even less responders, but am I the only person who's fallen into this trap? Has anyone at all ever managed to overcome this predicament? Secondly, and this is hugely important to me, how is it that alcohol completely nullifies fatigue due to liver damage? If one's liver is seriously damaged, how can something deadly poisonous to the liver overcome the effects of the damaged liver?? I realize that alcohol numbs and masks the body's signals, but it's still completely counter-intuitive that booze somehow soothes the liver, the very organ it's attacking. That's poorly worded but anyone with experience of this will get what trying to say. Is there a kind soul out there who can maybe tell me of a good alcoholism or hepatitis forum somewhere on the net? Alcohol is the one of the most painful curses. I wish to God I could discover a way to help others who are suffering from this madness and horror.
