Thanks Meg, the shakes are ridiculous! im on 4mgs of xanax, and 150mgs zoloft. been on the Xanax for nearly 7 years. With the bladder problems, i have no issue with being "bashful". im an ex-nurse who is very comfortable with the whole bodily functions thing- its is a real, physical inability to pee when i need to- highly frustrating. as it began when i was first medicated at 14yrs old, it made for difficult road trips with my family-we would stop at a petrol station to use the bathrooms every couple of hours and it would take me 20mins to go... i have to laugh about it, because if i didnt, i'd cry!
i appreciate your support, as someone who was diagnosed so young like me- my panic disorder began at 10 years old, though not medicated until 14- but like you i was told by my pysch that i would never live a 'normal' life or be able to function as a 'productive member of society'.
Ha! guess what? im a productive member of society- take that, narrow minded pyschiatrist!
