Thanks for the medication suggestion
Yes, it is incredibly frustrating to realize you might really need something to ease whatever ails us. You suffered severe trauma to your body at the hands of a patient. I imagine it also caused a lot of emotional distress too.
You are right again. It is what it is. I feel so much better now, just realizing that I am not a failure. I have been through the mill with prescriptions, but I also suffer physical pain and extreme anxiety at times.
I was put on benzos due to what was situational anxiety due to physical abuse and downright fear of my now .ex-husband. The pain meds were for realty physical pain, but they also helped to numb my emotions.
I am so glad your husband is doing better. I know marital stress is really hard to deal with.
Best wishes to you and your family and may lasting peace be yours.
