Wed, Feb 6 1:58pm · Too depressed to clean my apartment. in Depression & Anxiety

Hello and welcome to this wonderful group of people who are here to listen and tell their stories and what they have found helpful through their experiences…remember to always listen to yourself and your body too….and one thing I have learned is never stop talking to someone when feeling this way…it can change your life…dont do it alone.. so many people out there that have experienced what is happening to you that care. Please always stay in contact and I for one love to hear others progress and accomplishments!! All my best to you for now and one thing to keep in mind is you have to take care of yourself first…your apartment and cleaning will still be there when you get yourself better, please dont beat yourself up about that…we need YOU better!!

In my prayers,

I have tried that way and ended up in hospital with severe chest pains .. couldn't breathe right and hence they kept me for two days cuz it was effecting my heart…my gut was in a knot and couldn't digest any food…my body was shutting down….went back to my .5 x 3 times a day and within a few days everything went away….so let me ask u …do they have u micro tapering??? That is the smartest ways I have heard and am slowly doing my mid day dose that way…like a 1/4 of pill every 50 days….but I am feeling hard effects already do ti dr taking me off 25 immediately in one day…

Ty for the article…I will be bringing it to my new psychiatrist…let's pray she is more sympathetic as u say and can see I dont abuse these drugs…never changed my dose for 27 years…unfortunately my dr I saw for 7 years moved out of state somewhere and my dr I saw for 20 years has retired.. i will keep praying!!

I totally agree 100 percent with you but why my new psychiatrist is making me get off it is beyond me…as people say if it ain't broken dont fix it. I'm not broken I was doing great…I got referred to this dr by my dr that moved out of state and now she not even knowing me wants to change things that are not even an issue just because SHE feels I should not be taking a benzo….I did today look up a new psychiatrist and am seeing her next week…pray for me that she puts me back to normal….after all these years of just dealing with disease of anxiety and depression and now she puts me In this world wind….i pray i can get back my life i had the last 27 years soon…ty all for caring and letting me know…..you all are a gift from God for helping people with this….!!!💖💖💖

Well I hear what u r saying nut the big word there is CAN lead to dementia….and I have been on it for 27 years so if I get completely off it now at 56 what says I'm not going to get dementia and go through this horrible horrible withdrawal so we HOPE it doesn't happen???? Do you see what I'm saying?? At this point I say do I get to live a good life without withdrawals now or go through all this and still get dementia for being on it for so many years….its a very hard decision I have to make!!

I also get very nauseated after taking it now that I am tapering off…never before when taking it regularly did I get nauseated…my chest pains are now starting up again but not as bad yet as when I was hospitalized ..my gut feels like it has a knot in it and my appetite is terrible…so I'm guessing looking at your symptoms and mine it has something to do with tapering…so remind me after 27 years and no problems why do I have to taper off and now has all these terrible things happening to my body…I dont get it….

Very well said and so very true to the core. It's just as said everybody reacts to every medication differently that is why so many side effects for they have to take all people's into effect….this coming from A nurse that sees it daily
