Hi everyone. Sending special hugs to you all at what can be a difficult time for us anxiety sufferers.
Having spent 2 weeks in a psychiatric hospital until 10 days ago to try to relieve my severe anxiety and depersonalisation and trying both Pregabalin and Fluoxetine (again) and having to taper off valium, I'm now stranded at home over the holiday period without meds except Vistaril and continuing to have horrible withdrawal symptoms from the drugs.
Psych. took me off both cold turkey as I had a bad reaction to each. I sincerely hope I can keep going and get through this as I don't want to end up in A&E on Christmas Day, but yesterday evening was the worst yet with a panic attack that had me literally on my knees on the floor.
Sorry to moan - but the timing of all this is terrible for me.😢
Valium as a 'rescue' is not an option as I now become suicidal on it (hence the taper off).
