I've been on a whole slew of meds before and find that benzos help big time. (The other stuff ehh) They make everything more fluid and easy going for me. The only problem is tolerance, addiction, increased dosage. I've been on 1-3mg of klonopin for the past 2.5+ yrs and my dosage varies. It definitely has increased in number of days per week used and amnt since I started. My point I guess is, it helps hands down, and I'm in a funk. Not working or going to school this year, and severing some friendships/relationships left me needing it even more with simple interaction. At the same time, I'm tired of denying my self of things due to fear-- friendships, career, further education. I know taking klonopin daily or close to it would make things so much easier. Has anyone felt this way, decided f** it, take it since it improves quality of life and makes you functional (and if so, how long have you been on it). Or perhaps found better alternatives?
