Hey! I had a bad experience going off of Xanax, also. I ended up in a psych ward for two weeks. Going off Xanax cold turkey can cause all kinds of awful symptoms, including seizures.
My suggestion to you is to sit down with your mother and have a long talk. Discuss your fears, symptoms, etc. Tell her how badly you are feeling. I think a new doctor may be in order. Someone with a fresh perspective. If it turns out you do rely on Xanax too much, seek help for that.
Give it all time to get resolved. Your mind/body went through a lot. I hope that you'll talk to your mom about
all of this!
