Hi, I am very familiar with concerns about taking things like xanax, ativan, and in my case klonopin. I can relate to the concerns - taking the Anti depressents is one thing, but taking those fast-acting meds seems like quite another to some of us. But we have to do what we can to help ourselves, i would rather not need it, but I am convinced that i really do need it. So for the time being I'm sticking with the plan as agreed to with the doctor.
You will have times where you dread the fact that you need treatment, we all do, everyone who has to be treated for any illness does. But on the other hand aren't we lucky to have these things available to help us?
I also worry about always needing it and not being able to stop, but I know this is the situation and it's all for a reason and I have to just accept and deal with things as they come.
Peace to all my fellow forum members!
