... it. It really upsets me when I hear the people around me unsuccessfully trying to be secretive about having a prescription for it. How can I deal with them being so inconsiderate and insensitive when they whisper and shake their bottles and do not even think about how this might get to me? I try to ignore it but it doesn't work. I feel like such a loser because I am so weak over this. I understand that addiction will do this to you but all of these people I know are addicted to alcohol, marijuana and every other drug in the book... yet they can get easily prescribed when they actually don't need it. These are the people who get it and trade or sell it and ruin it for us that need it. I can't believe my Dad would accept this medication knowing what it did to my life and take into consideration that I had to move back in with him as a 29 year old. It ruined my life, took my money and a lot of my possessions. I am in recovery and these freaks can't seem to get that. I mean, come on... I have hung out with people who were on probation and could not smoke marijuana. Even I wasn't that out of it because I had enough respect not to smoke it around them. I want to be off drugs, I really do... but it seems all of the sudden every single person I come into contact with has a prescription for it when they don't really need it. All of us in this support group DO need it or needed it at one time or we would not be on this board. I wish I weren't so weak. It just seems that for something that is highly addicting and not prescribed that much, doctors are sure passing it out like candy. How can I feel better about this... please somebody help!!!
Your doctor if he was any kind of doctor at all should have weened you off this drug if you are suddenly forced to quit any doctor should know that this could cause seizures or even a coma. Ignore those idiots they obviously see that it gets to you and you are giving them pleasure by showing it. I know its hard trust me to have to stand there and wish you had your own. Dont beat yourself up over this if you need the medication find yourself another doctor that will give it to you so you dont have to suffer and you can laugh in their faces when they dont have any and you do. You need help weening off this med there is no question about that find a new doctor a.s.a.p im not joking either or your going to go through withdrawl hell. Be sure when you see the new doctor you let him know wether you are going to quit or not.
Its not up to a doctor when to decide enough is enough if you need it you need it but only a doctor can help you ween off the drug or continue getting prescribed xanax. Good luck to you and just ignore how they are treating you and turn the tables on them michelle.
Sounds like these people dont have any manners or care about your feelings that is just rude. Dont let them see that this gets to you cause thats what they want to see is you getting upset about it pretend it doesnt bother you. Find you a doctor as soon as possible to help you ween off the xanax or continue recieving it. Its obvious your doctor doesnt care about your saftey and health so find one that does. Good luck to you michelle.
