I've been panic attack free for 3.5 days. I have to contribute it to the Clonazepam. As bad as I was before, there's no other explanation.

It seems too good to be true!

What's more is that someone told me that once I've been taking it for two weeks, that's really when it'll be working it's best. I hope he is right. That's not to say I'm not doing well right now, but if I could be doing even better that would be great. I imagine myself feeling like I did five years ago. Hopefully I'm not setting myself up for disappointment.

But I want to extend a special thanks to everyone who tried to talk me into taking the Klonopin for the three weeks I had it and just stared at the bottle. And to those who've been there for me since, as well. I'm not a very mushy guy, but there are some GREAT people here and your support has meant a whole lot to me. I'm trying to get into therapy, and I wouldn't be surprised if the therapist suggests that I do not visit sites like this as long as I'm feeling well. If that's the case and I disappear, believe me, it's not because I've forgotten! Once I get back to work and start bringing in full paychecks I'll contribute to Healing Well, too. It's an INCREDIBLY valuable resource for support.

very glad to hear it! i took an ativan the other day (only .5mg) and i swear it made me feel really out of it. i wonder if it takes some getting used to, or if my dose was initially too much for me. i never considered taking it more than as-needed, but a lot of people seem to have great results taking a little every day.

So happy to hear all is good it has been a big uphill climb for you
The clonazapam did help
BUT you had to be willing to let it
Be proud and I hope you are not a stranger
Keep well
Thoughts and prayers are with you

I won't become a stranger unless the therapists tell me I need to stop visiting so that I can put distance between myself and anxiety. I kind of expect her to say that. Until then I'll stick around.

When I'm in my better moods and not so self-centered, there's nothing more gratifying that helping people. I don't know whether I've ever actually helped anybody or not, but at times I feel like I have, and it's helped me feel more like a complete person.

I expect a full recovery. I guess it's possible it won't happen. I may have some relapses. The fact that I still have bloating makes me think I still have some sort of minor thing going on with my innards. But you know what? I'm not worried about that right now. I'm just trying to balance being realistic and optimistic.

Today I'm going over finances, moving some money from investment accounts to my checking account. It's sobering to see the damage that's been done. But I'm thankful that I'm not ruined, and if I can get straightened out I'll be back where I was in no time. The future holds promise once again. I've made arrangements with my employer to return to work on Monday. That gives me today to get the money straightened out, and tomorrow to kick back and enjoy feeling good. This weekend I'll be on the road. My grandmother has had some health trouble and there's been some other minor crises within the rest of the family...I'm overdue to visit with all of them.

Be safe in your travels
Know yes that you have helped ppl here and that is always a good feeling
Yes if your therapist says not to come around then do not I can see her point actually
Be well and take care
