Hi mimisings, i too had a dreadful fear of taking meds again, i was on ssri's for over 10 years and i came off them 4 years ago, only for anxiety/panic attacks to come back 6 months after i stopped taking meds, which i could not cope with any longer and started taking prozac in October (nearly 10 weeks), i must say, it has been a roller coaster ride, it did make my anxiety worse for a couple of days, but now its subsided, ive just got problems in my life atm which is making me feel a bit depressed, but the anxiety has weakened. I do still get nervous if something happens, but its not as bad.

i too wish i could just get in my car and drive away but id only have to come back to my problems and atm i cannot leave my poor old dog, who is suffering with the cold, she's on medication for pain, last resort the vet can do for her is to just make her comfortable.

anyways, if you ever need a rant, its always good to come on here, god knows how many times ive vented my rants out this week and last, mainly because ive got no one else to talk to about my problems, and as everyone says, its good to talk and a problem shared, is a problem halved, or something like that.

Hope your'e feeling ok




Thankyou Lin yes I have ranted on here Agee times myself lol I guess you sometimes wish it would all just stop an so true I could not leave my dogs either! Have a blessed evening xxxx


Hi Mimi, I've just been reading blogs on here and I think we are all in the same frame of mind!!! Maybe we should hire a cruise ship and take our pets with us! plus an army of docs!

Hi. mim. I do hope you do not feel I took over your blog and treated it lightly. I just couldn't resist what ella said about cruise ships! Seriously, I do know how you feel. To drive away from it all would be nice but, unfortunately, we still take ourselves with us. One thing is sure and that is that you are NOT a weak minded person. None of us are. We didn't ask for this, it was thrust upon us by circumstances often beyond our control. My attitude to medication is that we should treat it as we would a crutch if we had a broken leg. Throw it away when the leg is healed. The one you are on at the moment, as far as I am aware, is not addictive as are some tranquilisers. But even these can be 'tapered' off when no longer needed. I hope you have some success with your new counsellor. To me there is no substitute for a face to face talk with a good counsellor. Love. jonathan.


Oh johnathen I enjoyed it so much like I said it made me laugh so hard esp the part of not leaving the port as is written laughter is medicine to the soul love you all we need more laughter for sure xxxxxxxxxxxx


So Happy you had a good laugh Mimi and all! Sometimes it's the best thing! and if we can laugh at ourselves that is a gift! Bless You xxxxxxxxx
