Hey to everyone I'm new to the forum a little background on me I was diagnosed with atrial flutters back in November and since than I've had major health anxiety and panic attacks. I did have surgery two months ago which so far has fixed my arrhythmias however my anxiety still haunts me day in and day out. I was put on .25 mg of Xanax back in November I'm up to 1mg a day sometimes a little more I feel like I can't stop taking it. I can't even go a full day at work without having a panic attack and immediately need to take a Xanax I want to stop taking medication but I'm afraid my body is already addicted. Anyways if there's is anyone out there who has been in a similar situation or has been able to subside there anxiety and not take any meds I'm asking for your advice I really want my life back and I want to be able to be a good mother without constantly thinking I'm going to die any minute.
