Welcome to the best place on the net. We are so happy to have you join us and I am Kitt.
I know taking a lot of med is scary, but many of us do as it is the lesser of two evils at the time. Remember you can always wean off the meds when you are feeling better, with your physicians help.
CBT, kudos to you, that is such a huge part of getting better and learning to reset your thinking. I am happy to hear you say your going to be in therapy. It takes hard work but you will find so many people have learned CBT and practice it that it becomes natural for them.
Again a warm welcome to the family. We will help you through this rough time and be here for you to offer support and help in anyway we can.
I'm glad that you found HW, it's an amazingly supportive place. I understand about your fear of taking all those meds, but I agree with kitt, if you need them right now than it's better to take them and when this bad period passes you can re-evaluate your need for them. I upped my xanax last oct when I fell into a pretty severe setback. I used the higher amount until I felt better and could lower it. I'm still on more now than I was before last oct, but once I'm comfortable with it, I'll lower it some more. I think learning cbt will help you alot too. I use it all the time and once you really get the hang of it, it does work wonders. I hope you will start to feel better soon!
Thank you for the warm welcome and support!! I am really looking forward to getting to know everyone!
We are excited to have you with us and I love your name, clever.
