Thanks tat for your input. I agree with helping others. I find sometimes I get reading other people's journals and posting to them, when I have a minute then I am spent and don't post on my own journal. Also right now my husband and I moved to my mom's house, where I grew up cause my mom has dementia and is 92 (she had me late in life) so I am on guard so to speak 24/7. It is very stressful on a few levels. In this house I experienced abuse. So it is tough being back here.
Rosie . So nice to read your encouraging post. The move was extreamly difficult. Instead of getting movers, my husbAnd gets his brother who has a pick up truck! It took about a week to move! Uuuggghhh. But I didn't go up on my dose or take Percocets either. For a few days though I Awoke with high anxiety, but still had to take care of my mom. But the last s days or so I awoke normaly, without anxiety. Felt awesome! About 3 days or so I made a cut with my Lopes so I am down to 20 pills now. I had at times terrible anxiety and really couldn't sleep well, but last night and morning the anxiety has disapated . But it could come back as there is anxiety moving here and the taper anxiety. So I will wait till things calm down a little more. Shouldn't be to long ( I pray!)
And yes dear Rosie, we will be overcomers from this awful drug and any others too! It will just take time and accept that at times we will feel uncomfortable. And like you said, it will pass!
And I think that having to or rather choose to look after someone else is helping me in some ways and in other ways it can be overwhelming. She at times wakes me up in the middle of the night, have to change her diapers and feel if they are soiled. I feed her or else food will go everywhere but her mouth. She really can't speak anymore, just mumbles and when I can understand her, she's asking for my dad. But he passed away 26 years ago....etc etc. But I love her to bits and sometimes its a joy to help her.
Anyway, thanks for reading
Question: my doctor gave me some 0.5mg Xanax cause they work fast. I have been taking 2 other Benzos for years now. How long will it take my body to get dependant on them? I don't want to get dependant on Xanax. So how long can I safely take Xanax?
Also for my bad back and sciatica I am taking Lyrica, Gabapentin and Flexeral. And I take Advil too. Really seems to be helping with my back issues!
