It amazes me how much people without anxiety just don't understand. Even if they have had some panic attacks, they still just don't get what it is like to battle it everyday. I tapered down on my klonopin and finished my taper almost 30 days ago. Through withdrawal and everything I had hoped my mother, who has had anxiety attacks before, would be able to understand me and kind of relate to what I am going through. My sister, who successfully withdrew from heroine, is the one who understands me most. She can give me advice on withdrawal but the anxiety is different. When people tell u that u just need to ride it out and wait for your body to adjust it makes me want to slap them. I would love to see them go through this everyday for a week and see what they have to say then. It is not that I don't appreciate their support, it is just hard to relate. I can't lay down and relax during the day because sitting is hard for me when I am anxious. Working with 3 year olds is not any easier. Has anyone come off of medicine and had anxiety breakthroughs or new anger issues?
