I paged my psych doc because i wanted to talk about this major anxiety i am having. i do have xanax or valium available but maybe i need extended release?

ill talk to him. i want to do CB therapy but cant really leave the house due to TPN and other issues. i want to see someone at home or therapy here.
i admit i need help.

i check my bp, hr, im obsessed with every little thing. ringing in the ears. i go from fine to panic in a second.

yesterday i had a dizzy spell and lighthead out of no where and i thought i was deprived of oxygen. i got panic and almost wanted to call ER.
i felt so foggy, confused, tired, the whole nine.

funny thing is.. blood sugar was normal.. blood pressure was normal.. wasnt seein stars.. called my home care nurse and she said it sounded like panic. she was like.. i was there this morning and your lungs sound great. and i had bloodwork wed. i am anemic.

Xanax XR is available . Valium is also available in a extended release form however I am not familliar with either one.


There is a free online CBT program and you will find the link for it in our resources above. You can work the program from home on your own time frame.



I hope this gives you a bit of helpful info.



Kindly,

do you guys take your anxiety meds 1-3 times a day or just when you feel you need it?
