so last nite i had an intense fear that i wasnt breathing good and that my heart was slowing stopping and that i would go to sleep and that would be it. i know its my anxiety/panic disorder. i was doing good, and then bamm it hit me rite in the face. i know that alot of this feelings is due to the reducing of the mgs of my percocet since im on a slow tapering plan. i ask for prayers that i can get thru this reducing of mgs, and that i will be able to work thru my depression/anxiety/panic/pain pill dependency. thanks all of you for being my family, leanne
Awe honey, it really is going to be alright. I know you are in the thick of it right now, but you musn't let your mind play tricks on you. Bring us upto date on how many milligrams of percs you are taking now? I'm here praying for you daily and if you need someone to talk to don't hesitate to write. We are all in this together!!
R U taking any Meds for ur anxiety and panic disorder? How about ur insomnia? I hope so, because, if not, u r going to go thru a corner of hell with this percent ofoxy tapering. A pharmacist friend of mine told me to keep plenty of Klonopin or the generic clonazepam, Sunday for the terrible anxiety that goes along with tapering and getting off the med. And he asked what opiate i was going to take for my chronic pain syndrome. So... do u have any meds for anxiety. And sweetie, fear goes hand in hand with anxiety. I'll try to explain the anxiety reaction and the changes that go on in ur body chemically and/or hormonally. Anxiety causes a release of adrenaline which then sets ur body up for "fight or flight" mode. Just imagine if u were walking out in the woods one day and a BIG BEAR started running at u.
Ur mind makes an instantaneous decision whether to grab a stick and scare him away or run like hell. Our bodies cannot tolerate that high level of stress for very long or eventually our heart gives out or we have a stroke.
So, what I'm getting to is, u need more help getting off percs, because what u stated in your question, sounds to me like ur fixin' to have a meltdown and I'm concerned for u.
Talking on here is a larnong experience, but I can't prescribe the meds u need. Please get u some help from a doc that knows what he's doing ASAP.
Prayers ur way,
Hope this finds you better. It is a battle we all fight everyday. Remember, God promised us He would never bring us to a place He isn't willing to see us through, so I know He is right there with you. You are in our prayers too. I havent been online much because they just finished burying our phone lines. Too slow to bother at first, but seems fine now. If I'm not online, I will still be thinking of you!
