What's New in benzodiazepines

I’m too stressed so I took more clonazepam than I should have #Benzodiazepines #Clonazepam #Depression #Anxiety

I’m so sick of everything. Last night I was trying to fix something and because I’m a useless piece of trash I ended up breaking the figure I was trying to fix. Now it’s not available in my country and I had to pay 71 candian dollars to import it from Canada which will take about 3 weeks or so, so 3 weeks without it great! My mother died of a heart attack, my dad’s got parkinson, my aunt has cancer and my uncle had a heart attack, I too am suffering from many diseases and I’m close to going back to university. The way I am feeling I can’t do shit. I should just give up and go somewhere where nothing will bother me, wish I could. Anyways the pressure was so much that I decided to take 1mg of clonazepam when I’m supposed to take 0.25 mg in cases I need it. I don’t know how bad that is but to be honest I don’t know what to do. If anyone can read this I’d appreciate it cause I feel like a complete loser who can’t get his life together


Atavan, Xanax, etc. are ONLY temporary bandages for your symptoms.

Anxiety Doc will not continue, more than 2 mths(approx),these types of meds, because of addiction issues. #Benzodiazepines #Anxiety #Addiction

No benzo for me.

What do you do when you can’t take anxiety med due to addiction? I have been on antidepressants of some sort for 25 years now. Have abused benzos in past. Can’t take them. No antidepressant helps my anxiety. #Benzodiazepines #Anxiety #justwanttoescape


Anyone had to take Benzodiazepines for long-term help for anxiety?

Hi! I’ve been diagnosed with OCD, Eating Disorder, Panic Disorder and Depression from Complex Childhood Trauma. I’ve been prescribed anti-depressants and medications for sleep. I’m also on benzos Lorazepam and Alprazolam, and have been taking them for more than 1.5 years.

I’ve tried to control my anxiety to prevent taking to much of the benzos but this has only backfired. I try not to take them on days when I’ll be chilling or just relaxing but my panic attack and severe anxiety will go on for hours. Gradually, even if the anxiety reduces slightly over time, other symptoms like intrusive thoughts, twitching and mental fog will come up. I usually concede defeat and take the pills after a few hours.

I know I need them now (I’m going through a period of many stressors) but I don’t want to rely on them forever and I just want to know if anyone had similar experiences and don’t mind sharing? About the medication or experience with severe anxiety that is debilitating. Any tips or ideas will be much appreciated.

Also really really trying not to txt my boyfriend something antagonistic but really want more love from him 😢#BorderlinePersonalityDisorder #PremenstrualDysphoricDisorder

Recovery is not Linear

So I relapsed back in May and felt ashamed that I relapsed AGAIN. Looking back at it, I could see I was in a lot of pain and here were no other outlets. I’m proud of myself for still being here today and I’ll continue my recovery. It’s been two months without cutting and surprisingly, I don’t miss it. I’ve found healthier coping skills. Hope everyone is doing okay.

Mental Health Tattoo

I got this tattoo for two reasons: as a reminder to myself to keep going and as a remembrance piece for a close friend of mine who died by suicide.

It’s a panda with a hidden semicolon in it. I have always wanted a semicolon tattoo and stumbled across this design on Pinterest. I also wanted to get a tattoo for my dear friend who just as me, struggled with mental health problems. She died too young. She loved pandas and would draw me pandas in my school notebooks. Every time I look at this tattoo, it reminds me to keep going and that this friend will always be with me wherever I go; I will never be alone. RIP my friend, I miss and love you so much.
