UGH.  Well, he upped my Lexapro to 20 mg at bedtime...which I figured he would.  He told me he isn't prescribing anymore Xanax... sad ...he suggested I go to a psychiatrist, and he gave me some names of places I could check out.  The bad thing is, I am out of Xanax, and I have the dentist tomorrow...UGH.  I NEED the Xanax.  I will have to get one from my parents before I go.  It was too late to call any psychiatrists this evening, so I will have to do it tomorrow morning.  Maybe they will "hook me up."  I am not even taking a lot.  I take .25 mg every morning.  Rarely do I have to take another one before the day is up.  That to me doesn't seem to be a lot, and if it's what makes me comfortable, then, who cares.  He gave me more Lexapro samples...enough for 8 WEEKS!  I wish I wouldn't have filled that $91 prescription the other day.  UGH.  Oh well.
 
So, I changed my dentist appointement from Wednesday to Tuesday, since I am going to be moving Wednesday.  So, tomorrow, at 11 a.m. I will be in the chair.  I am nervous.  I hate going to the dentist.  Who likes it?  Probably no one. 
 
So, I am a little frustrated with my doctor for not giving me anymore Xanax.  It annoys me.  I need it.  I suggested something like Valium or Klonopin, and he said no to that too.  I guess I just have to find a psychiatrist, spend more money I don't have, and get what I need that way.  UGH.
 
Well, I will let you all know how my dental appointment goes. skull    WISH ME LUCK!  (ha ha)
 
Thanks all for listening!

HI Tammy,

I am sorry your physician would not listen to you about giving you a few Xanax to get you through the dentist.  Just think of all the dentists in the world that we all say "We hate the dentist".  Do you think they hear us, poor guys/gals  lol.

I am sorry that you are feeling so anxious.  I will be thinking of you tomorrow in the "chair" and keeping my fingers crossed for the time to go fast.

Keep on posting and really try to get the Pdoc appointment set up.  I believe that will help you immensely.

Gentle Hugs

Thank you kindly Kitt. As always, your words are very caring! I am going to get set up with a pdoc ASAP as I too think that will help. I am going to get through the dentist tomorrow, and I am going to get through this move. I am making myself feel confident, even when it feels hard!!!

Thanks for caring!

Hi Tammy,
 
Glad to see the doc increased your Lexapro.  Sorry to hear about the Xanax. 
 
I also hate the dentist.  I try to concentrate on the music playing on the radio.  Thank goodness he always has it on lol!  yeah
 
But seriously, try to be as calm as you can be and it will be over before you know it. 
 
Best of luck tomorrow and with the move Wednesday.  Please keep us posted.
 
Hugs,
Mary

Thank you Mary. I am getting ready to take my son to his first day of school. We are leaving in about 10 minutes. Then, I am going to come home and nap for about an hour or so, because I had a pretty lousy sleep lastnight... :( And, then I am going to get up around 10 a.m. and get ready for my wonderful dental appointment! UGH. I will post later and let everyone know how it went. Oh, and when I get up from my little nap I am going to call a couple psychiatrists that my doctor recommended yesterday!!!

I will check in later.
