I didn't do well and broke down in the parking lot, and bathroom, and kept my sunglasses on in the waiting room, but regardless I survived. I was also kept waiting for a bit over an hour after already being half an hour early, so once my anxiety seemed to wean a bit it was time to go in and of course that spiked it right back up. Ah, well, I didn't die or faint (though I felt very close to it once), and was put on Klonopin like I had wanted.
The doctor was very nice, though I felt rude chiming in with my knowledge of the availabke medications, but I was desperate to not waste time and just get out of there. My mom said I wasn't rude, that I just seemed informed, and I guess she is probably more right than me, haha. I also made up a list of all my symptoms and the nurse scanned it into my file; she seemed really pleased I was so prepared, but I had to be, otherwise I would have forgotten things, lol
I was given the .5mg tablets and told that the .25mg tabs don't do much for anxiety, but regardless I cut the pill in half today and figure for at least two pills worth I will cut them in half just to get it into my system. I feel calmer on just the .25mg, but the anxiety is still sort of there, so I know that taking the regular dose will probably make me feel much more normal. I was just too scared to take a full dose, especially after such an emotionally trying day. Two hours at the doctor, a full two days of anxiety over going, and I was more than ready to just take a nap when I got home --which I did, lol.
I've also been experiencing some, uh, tightness of the scalp? I'm not sure how to describe it, but for a few moments every now and then it feels tight and sort of tingly, as if I just had a cold chill, but without the cold. I know it's the anxiety and not the klonopin, but just wondering if anyone else gets that?
Thanks for all the continued support, all my love,
