finally time to seek answers

hello everyone let me begin by saying it has truly been a blessing to come across this website. I realize I'm not the only one struggling with the issues.I was beginning to think that no one understood much less cared. my battle with anxiety started years ago I struggled with eating disorders as a coping mechanism. when I finally realized that things were out of control I did turn to my doctor who prescribed me xanax 2 milligrams 3 times a day. I never took the full two milligrams. I began with .5 milligrams 3 times a day and then life threw lots of curveballs. I lost my job and my father passed away. So early but surely I have increased to 1 milligram but I am having to take it sometimes four times a day. This makes me run out early and I have to ration myself. I know in my heart I have an addiction and that kills me makes me feel like a weak person. I work 3 jobs and I'm a single mother of two teenagers. I have been taking this medication for over 5 years now. Can someone please tell me how to begin to get off of it? It's scary because there are days that I try to cut back and it doesn't turn out so well. Any answers that anyone could give me or any advice would be greatly appreciated. Again thank you for this forum.

Hey Amanda, welcome to

Even if our scars donít match thereís no wrong you canít make better if you can figure out a way to change your mind.

And sure thereís things I regret not doing or doing. Those thoughts climb my spine like spiders, and then Iím really the stranger in my own bed,

and that ball of nervous gets pushed into every crack. Thatís whatís holding the bricks together.
