Thank you all for your advice and support. I have a great relationship with my family doctor too. He and his nurse, I feel saved my life. He sat with me and counseled me once a week for about 6 weeks. He has been my doctor for half my life. He is seeing me once a month now, but I still worry over having to take the klonipin. I worry about taking it even though I know it gave me so much relief and I need to take it. I finally got sleep and it helped my anxiety. It also helps with the IBS. I can't even tell you how sleep deprived I was.
I also took care of my Dad for 8 years. He passed away in Dec. 2004. That year my husband got hurt at a coal mines. He is retired now. My Mom now is in early stages of alzhiemers. That is just to name a few changes that happened. I started have some health problems last June. I had always been healthy and thought I was doing so well. The anxiety got bad in December then I started having problems feeling depressed. I have been doing better the past few months since the zoloft and taking the klonipin at bedtime. I still have days I get down and I worry about things. It is hard to break that cycle. I am working on it and hope finding this board will give me the extra support I need. It does help to feel you aren't alone.
Take care and thanks again..I pray you all have a good night.
