I've come to a decision tonite. I'll be da**** if I'm going to keep on suffering in silence when I have xanax on hand! I have been fighting this anxiety for months w/o using hardly any xanax, all because the pdoc is afraid I'll get addicted to it! Well if I do, so be it! I've been trying CBT and alternative stuff. I'm not saying that it's not been of help cuz it has, but it's not enough!!!!!! I will try to keep it to a minimum, of course, but I took the stuff for 12 years and I'm still here! If I don't find relief soon, I may not last another year! So there. I've said it and I mean it. If he don't like it, then I'll cross that bridge when I come to it.
