What to do

I have suffered from anxiety and depression since I was a child. Throughout the years it has been a roller coaster, sometimes very bad and sometimes not bad at all. Currently it is very bad.

I feel as if I can't do anything right and no one really understands or believes me. I'm terrified of losing my wife and feel like such a burden because of how I constantly feel.

I've been on and off medication for 3 years but been taking them steadily for almost a year. I started taking 50mg of Zoloft per day but now am taking 200mg per day and also Tako 1mg of Xanax 3 times per day. I don't even feel like the Xanax is doing anything anymore. I want to drink everything away so badly but I have been down that road before and am fighting the urge.

It is a struggle trying to fix what's taken so long to live and fit in just to be excepted! Let your life struggles be what makes you strong! Trust others and if you should fall, get up! Or get help to have you picked up! I live in the dark because of my lazy trained mind! I am with you in my prayers to make us better!


please go back to your psychiatrist, or get another one if the one you have now does not seem to understand your struggles.

I used to be on one medication that I thought worked wonders but it eventually let me struggling with anxiety and panic attacks that I basically quit it. I am back on meds and taking a whole new medication and this one is so much better cause I don't worry about getting anxious or having panic attacks and I am able to maintain my cool in situations that would have had me freaking out while on my former meds.

you need to please work with your psychiatrist to get your treatment going in the right direction. I honestly think that if that happens, you won't even need Xanax or any emergency prescription.
