X is for Xanax

Xanax has gotten me through many tough times. I’m not on a mega dosage, and I don’t feel as if I have to increase the dosage to obtain the same feeling as the smaller dosage is making me feel.

Xanax helped me tame and manage stress through some large triggers happening simultaneously. My mind couldn’t process fast enough, and my emotional well being took a hit.

I don’t feel the need to take the medication anymore. Along with other medications, it helped my mind move to a place where it needed to be—to begin healing itself, to manage my illness.

To you anxiety sufferers—don’t give up! It is possible to work through anxiety with the proper help and tools. The treatment is specific to your individual situation, and I’m not saying I’m cured, but I can manage my anxiety much better—so can you!


About April

I'll come back to this when I find out who I really am. I've been through some extremely rough patches but they have made me a better person. I blog if my brain is functioning first thing in the morning.

      It is nice to achieve some sort of level of caring for myself which doesn’t include thoughts that I have cancer of the whatever every time I feel something I perceive as wrong with my body.

    I can understand why you would wish to use the “X” for Xanax. This would be the first thing you would think of. I was thinking of how at Halloween, they x-ray candy to check it for dangerous sharp items.
    I am proud of you for encouraging people to try different medications and revealing how you went from taking this medication and went through several steps, working to become a less anxious person, a happier you! It is a learning process, a healing one which will help so many people, April.
    I especially like the attitude, “If I did this, so can you!” Smiles, Robin

      Words beginning with X are the same as words begging with Z. I don’t use them while writing or speaking. I have to say that depression lifting is a bit relief. Taming the anxiety or maybe it’s plain fear of depression returning has changed my life. 🙂

      Thanks for your encouragement Robin!

  5. Agreed! I haven’t taken any Ativan in over a year. Never did take anything else for more than a day, either. I want my prescription refilled, but I feel so powerful now. I know, without a doubt, I wouldn’t have gotten out of the panic loop without some benzos!
    I am so much better 🙂
