    Hello! This looks like my sort of thread. I recently spent a year in a YPU, being discharged at the beginning of August. It's nice to meet you all. c:

    Almost, why did you take it? If you don't mind me asking. I was wondering if it was meant for insomniacs or people who have trouble maintaining a normal sleeping pattern or what.
    Well I took it because I was hardly sleeping at all so mostly insomnia, however if I did sleep it was mostly early hours of the morning so I'd only get a couple of hours, which is what it has pretty much reverted too now.. But I think for either one of those it could help!

    Thank you! It's nice to meet you.

    Has anyone had experiences with tight-fisted, medication-shy GPs? My GP has been prescribing me diazepam for my anxiety, and it's been working a treat. It makes me feel human, something so, so elusive. It makes me functional enough to attend school. However, the latest scrip is of ten 2mg pills to last me two weeks.

    Considering I took 10mg last night alone, I don't think this is going to work out... Haha. What can I do to obtain more? Or perhaps I need a higher potency benzo?

    Have/had plans to go and do proper socialising tonight with mostly people I haven't met before and **** im so scared. dont really want to go because am still so ttriggered and is not fair for me to inflict myself when they just want to enjoy themselves and dont want people seeing me like especially given im just a stranger. but then my friend who asked me i used to be really close with and i dont want to let her down (again) and know she will take me not coming badly even though it would be best for everyone. am really pissed off with stupid people from yesterday cos if they had jsut not done triggering thing then maybe id be ok and i was sort of looking forward to going and stupid ****ing body for being ridiculous and not getting the hell over it already. kinda just want to trigger myself into bad flasback just to have it done with cos have just been getting tactiles forever and am so tired and painy and its really not ok.
    this is kind of precisly why i should never try and and actually live because it does not work out at all.

    Go to hockey! Thousands of kids are just there, because their moms sent them there. Yeah, okay, maybe not helpful, but just to encourage you. Force you to think of the feeling and just go. (Do you really only get therapy every couple of weeks? That sounds a bit rare for me to expect a significant prospect? But I am not a health professional, so ... )

    Maybe you are not that strong now, but you'll get.

    Are you able to help out at home? That is already a big help.

    It is okay, that it is hard for you and your wife. She probably feels as helpless as you. And from my experience most people are not able to understand what that takes or gives to someone. But just because she is a bit annoyed you should not retreat.
    Not decided about hockey yet, I wanna go, I really really do but I'm so scared

    Yeah therapy every couple of weeks, I could probably ask to see him more frequently but I prefer it this way - I normally run out of examples pretty quick so weekly or more would be even worse

    And yeah, I do all the cleaning and cooking at home so my wife can concentrate on her work, but it doesn't feel like I'm really helping all that much, especially given how much I cost her.

    Hi. :hi: Hehe, I really like your name!

    I know you don't want to hear this but your GP is probably doing it for your own good, benzo addiction is not nice - some say it's worse than heroin addiction. The GP is probably also watching his own back too. If you need so many diazepam have you tried asking your psychiatrist for them? Psychiatrists tend to be more understanding in my experience.

    So I reduced the haloperidol by 1/3, I think I'm entering shark-infested waters. A the gym the girl next to me kept laughing at how fat I am or at least that's what I heard so I came home and the walls are taunting me louder than in weeks. Not sure what to do...need to get off this drug but at what cost??

    Thank you! I know that benzos can be super addictive... It's just a pity that there are no other efficacious anxiolytics. ;; I'll pester my psychiatrist when I next see him, but that won't be until the 1st October, by which point my current benzo stash will certainly have run out. Ah, well...

    I'm really, really tired, and, er... Craving benzos! aaah, that beautiful ataraxis... ^^

    Eeeek. That sounds like a real fast taper. You should probably be reducing by a bit less than a third - when I came off olanzapine, I reduced by around a fifth per week. Be careful.
