I'm just out on day leave so probably won't get to respond to this message straight away.
I'm still in the private psych hospital and have been going through hell.
I saw an intern on admission and rather then talk to my pdoc he decided to cold turkey me off the clonazepam (which is the only drug that works on my anxiety) without any backup plan. I went into hospital sick and have since got way sicker. I couldn't feel my hands or feet on Saturday as the anxiety was so bad. My pdoc has since started me back at 75% of what I was on 2mg per night now 1mg at night and .5mg in the mornings. He said there was no reason for me to withdraw just yet off the med. I'm so angry, scared, frustrated, anxious well you get the picture.
I've just now got to wait for the med to get back into my system and I know when I'm well and it's time to withdraw to do it very slowly and in very small amounts. The people I've met have been fantastic and the unit (depression and anxiety) everyone treats each other like family and supports you (better then half the staff but that's another story).
I hope everyone on here is hanging in there, I feel like I've taken some giant steps backwards but am now taking tiny steps forward again.
Well I'll speak to you all when I next get a chance. AA.
