It's stressfull enough to know that there is something wrong with you and your coping skills. I have driven my husband to the point of insanity all most. I have been so angry and irrational that I have laid my hands on him during an argument. I have yelled like a crazy person at the top of my lungs. I seriously feel like i'm crazy. I'm on Buspar for anxiety but, Ativan works so good and my Doc doesn't want me to have anymore. It's a "bridge", and should only be used short term she said. It seems to be the only thing that works to calm me down. (My irritability and irrationalism). I don't want my husband to be mad or stressed because of me anymore. I hate doing this to him. He ask's me all the "Why do I have to wake up everyday and be unhappy?" That makes me feel like such a horrible person. What should I do?
Hi Loopy Lisa, Love your name!
I suffer from slight generalized anxiety, and at times (in the past) I have gotten irritable. It sucks, I know. But please do not put your hands on anyone in anger. Girl, you could get in trouble for that!
If ye are depressed, perhaps an anti-depressant that has a calming effect may be beneficial for you? Just a thought.
I do not understand why a doc would NOT prescribe something that works for you! I realize that benzo's are addictive, but the Buspar isn't working for you.
Maybe you should see another doctor? I am not suggesting doctor shopping. A psychiatrist maybe?
I wish you the best,
yo lisa, maybe you should look into some kind of therapy.doing that maybe can help you to deal with whatever is troubling you.at the very least your husband will see that your trying to get some help he will look at it and think she is trying to wake up in a better mood. oh and as for your doctor fire her ass and get a new one.unless your 18 years old you don't need to be told that ativan is harmful to you. and if she was giving it to you she should have taken you off of it slowly.hope this helps you,good luck to you lisa,we here at drugs.com will always be here for you.god bless you
