First of all, Welcome to Healing Well. As you can already see by the above responses, this is a great community with a so many caring people who will offer their advice and assistance to you. I'm sure you will find their help invaluable.
I can't say anything about Klonopin or Celexa as I have never been on either one, so I will defer to those that have experience with them.
I am very happy to know that you have given your move back to LA for the 4 months so much thought. This is a big decision for you and you need to make sure it's the right one. If you do decide to go back to LA, just make sure to continue taking your meds and try to relax as much as you can as well as have some fun like you did in Hawaii. If you do get into a bad way again or feel like you are starting to head that way, then call your doc where you live now to see what the doc suggests you do and go from there. It also sounds like you have a good relationship with your mom, make a call to her whenever you need to and I bet she will do her best to help calm you. Try not to let it get out of control - try some relaxation techniques that are posted on the board (I will try to find that thread for you); make that call before things are so out of control that you have to leave LA again before your internship is done. But if you need to leave earlier than May, then do it - at least you know you will have given it your best shot and that's what counts. Don't beat yourself up about it.
Welcome to Healing Well and keep us posted so that we can continue to try to help you.
I was able to find that thread on Relaxation Techiniques and bumped it to the top of the board for you. Hopes this helps!!
