IT can get better ........Read the " Successs Thread " or " other threads that are positive
I dont know why your doc will not rx any benzo's for you but there are some that just wont due to the belief they are addictive .......YES we become ( some) dependant on them but I for one have been on the 30 plus yrs.......... valium and ativan.........and this yr I have almost taken nil I only take when absolutely needed and NO I didnt go thru w/d's but I did do alot of self help techniques such as Relaxation, Breathing, and Cognitive behaviour
Therapy ( which you can do online....... free )
YOu have found a fantastic group of ppl here that are so supportive caring and giving .......I know that you will not be " fixed" just like that but by having these ppl to talk to will help you I am sure
Also you may need to change docs or have a PDOC intervene for you and be put on a short term RX for a med that will HELP you ........Just a thought .........
I suppose your doc will not RX ativan or diazapam either?? even a low dosage ..........
You need to maybe do a journal of what you go thru on a day to day basis and make him read this .....you are the patient and docs are not God they are human just like us .........
