Anyway, now I have absolutely no one to talk to...I have been abandoned by friends because I'm a loony...and probably dangerous. I have tried my best. Went to work as a veterinary assistant, couldn't stand the pressure and started taking larger doses of Xanax. I had to quit...My mother says to her acquintances when they ask where I am that I moved out. To Denmark. To the UK. I feel ashamed. I saved her life twice when she tried to kill herself. Now not only do I have to deal with my problems, but have to watch out for her manic episodes. We had to move 6 times during 4 years. I can't take it anymore, I need some friends...Sorry, I'm not a wimp. I'm just so very tired AND lonely.
Hello, you say in your post you're jealous of those who have the support of their family and friends when faced with difficulties...I have suffered true h*ll for the past 14 years from Panic Disorder with Agoraphobia and got addicted to Xanax. Just an ordinary story - first big panic attack, the psych doc prescribes Xanax and Paxil (Seroxat in Poland, where I live), I get addicted to Xanax. Wean myself off it...change the psych doc...He PRESCRIBES me Ativan! Again, I wean myself off it...But now, for the past 6 years I've been using Xanax. And I have NO SUPPORT SYSTEM whatsoever. My mother, 66, suffers from bipolar. My partner left me almost 5 years ago because he said he hated the junkie with breathing problems (I'd also developed hyperventillation syndrome to a maximum degree).
