Will doctor prescribe me a benzo on first visit?
I've never taken prescription drugs in the past. My mom talked to me and tried to convince me to do something about my depression/anxiety, and I made it clear to her that counseling/therapy wasn't an option for me. I've hardly even admitted of my social anxiety to anyone, so the last thing I want to do is talk to someone about it. I went to an appointment and my my dad told my doctor I had sa, and he assigned me to therapy, but I didn't follow through with that. I'm simply not content with therapy. Anyway, my mom already said she'll take me to an appointment strictly for a prescription of whatever I need, and I'm wondering if I can get prescribed a benzo. I start school in a few weeks, and don't want this year to be anything like last year. I would drink about 4-5 shots of vodka every morning to take the edge off, and once I could no longer obtain the booze, I just started cutting class again. I'm 17 turning 18 September 15, so I'll be an adult soon. I know most will prescribe ssri's or whatever, but if it's not gonna work then what's the point? If it works then that's great, but I want something that will work for sure. I know benzo withdrawals can be awful, but I could care less at this point. I even considered getting into heroin just to eventually die of it. The anxiety is almost making me not even want to live, and it's practically causing me to be depressed. I need something to get me through the school year, and I don't want it to be alcohol again.
