Hi there guys.  Been a while since I have typed, so I thought I'd type a bit to say hello to you all, see how everyone is doing, and give a little update of how I am doing.  I am stressing out, worse than ever.  I told my doctor that I needed to talk about adjusting my meds and I am thinking maybe adding a sleeping pill to the mix.  I have been taking Tylenol PM to sleep for a while now, and I know that isn't good to take long term.  The few times I have tried to go to bed without it, I didn't sleep at all.  So, therefore, I feel I need a sleep aid.  Anyone on any sleep aid?  I wanna have an idea of what I am talking about with my doctor.  He doesn't wanna give me anymore Xanax.  That bothers me.  I feel like I "need" it.  THe past few weeks I have needed to use it, and the month before that, it was just the comfort of knowing that I had it that made me feel good.  So, he doesn't want to give me anymore, and now I am in panic mode.  These are just the few thoughts I am having right now. 
Mom is doing great.  No more bleeding.  That doctor was right in the treatment he gave her...thank the GOOD LORD!  She doesn't bleed ever now, and her wound is almost healed.  If only we had went to him sooner.  LOL. 
I haven't moved yet.  The landlord said it was fine for us to move, and the maintenace man said he would have us moving last weekend, and nope, still not moving yet.  John called today to see what is going on, and no one seems to know.  I am living out of boxes, since we thought we were moving last weekend.  I am annoyed with that, highly.
Other than that, life is grand.  Jay Jay is doing good.  He goes back to school Tuesday... sad Mommy isn't taking it well.  He is excited, I am NOT! 
Now that I have gone on and on, if anyone has some advice on anything I talked abot, then great, other than that, just tell me how you guys are...I have been missing you all!
Lots of Love!  And, (((((HUGS)))))
Dealing with panic and anxiety for 8 years off and on...right now more on than off.  Major health anxiety as well!
New found issues with agoraphobia...working on that too.
I am NOT weak, I am just down right now.  I am doing what it takes to get my life back!!!
Best Wishes to all...Tammy

Hey  Tammy,

Hi there where you been hiding. I have missed you. I think you should try to find a new physician for you as this physician does not seem to want to take your symptoms seriously.

Shake up that maintainance man and get moved in to the new apartment.

So glad your Mom is doing fine, that is like a blessing from heaven. I am sure your Dad feels so much relief.

It is time for return to school already isn't it, that is such a fun time for the children, new shoes and seeing old friends and meeting new ones.

I wish I were a kid my thread says.  I just want to play.

I am fine and we have lots of new members so cruise the forum and meet some.

Hugs to you kiddo, glad to hear from you. Stay with us.

Hi Tammy
I am also glad your mom is not bleeding anymore

I still for the life of me cannot figure out HOW and WHY with all that blood and bleeding they kept releasing her

I am glad though

Hope you get to moving real soon

So glad to hear the improvements with your mom, that must be such a relief to both of you.  I agree with Kitt, get a new physician.  I'm seeing a psychiatrist who only deals in medication management, and he's been prescribing me xanax for about 13 years now.  There are doctors out there who are not afraid of prescribing xanax, you need to find one of them.  I've never taken a sleep aid, so can't really help you there.  I do hope that you will be in your new apartment soon, it can't be much fun to be living out of boxes for any length of time!  All my best to you!
