    I was the biggest Xanax addict on God's green earth. I was taking 6 mg per day at one point, begging and manipulating my doctors to give me that much. I would go to doctors and pharmacies under phony names. I'm so glad I didn't get into trouble!! I would buy them online from who knows what country. I would even buy them off the streets. I'm off Xanax now, but they turned me into a more anxious person than I was at baseline.
    Would anyone like to share similar experiences with the Xanax Trap?

    My Dad used to say he was “collecting smiles” Being an open hearted and kind person isn’t always as easy it sounds! But a smile goes such a long way!

    I'm here per my therapist's encouragement to try to forge healthy connections with people and be part of a support system with others that also struggle with mental health. #Anxiety #Depression #Addiction
