Recently i told my best friend who is also my cousin i couldnt talk to her anymore. She has taken zanax for over 10 years for anxiety and depression. At times her behavior is out of controll, she still has anxiety and severe depression. She only takes the zanax and dosent give other meds a chance. After a few hours she starts feeling anxiety and takes another zanax, i think shes having withdrawl not anxiety every 3 - 4 hours. All of her family and friends have distance themselves from her due to her behavior. She is happy and up one day then the next 3 she is down and depressed. She calls me and after 2 years i just cant take it any longer. I have talked to her about
going to rehab and getting off the zanax and they can treat her with other meds that are better. She wont even try, she has abused the meds several times and admitts to this. I love her so much and i feel depressed now myself because i told her until she got help for this, not to call me, did i do the right thing? I have always tried to support her and do understand she has anxiety and depression, but why does she refuse to get help. She has done some things that you just wouldnt beleive, but i still supported her when no one else would. Now my heart is breaking because of this. My health is bad but im a happy person full of life and love. I just cant take any more of her anxiety and depressed calls of cring. She gives every excuse their is not to get off the zanax. If it is so helpfull to her why is it not working. Did i do the right thing? If so why do i feel so blue? I need your opions. She thinks i hve deserted and betrayed her. Did i ??????????????
