can't stop obsessing

I haven’t been able to see or think of a future in so long. I spend so much time obsessing about the past, it’s all I have. I can’t see any future and the present is torture. I feel stick reliving old memories, they are so vivid. Why do I keep getting sicker, I thought time was meant to heal. How is it possible to regain your interests and passions if they have been gone for so long, I don’t understand how they can just come back.

I am hesitant of even mentioning this, but have you tried or ever been prescribed a SSRI to manage these reoccurring, life disrupting, thoughts? I know, it’s another medication and there is even another entire forum dedicated to people getting off of SSRI’s. But, I will say, I was on one for a short period of time and it actually did work in terms of stopping intrusive thoughts and cyclic thought patterns of worry, grief, anxiety, etc.

I also have intrusive thoughts, and OCD as well. The only problem I have with going on an SSRI is that I may be overcome with side-effects, and the need to take benzos again. It’s a “What if” situation and I don’t know what to do. I was on Zoloft 12 years ago, but had been taking Xanax. Tried it again in 2016, without benzos, and it was intolerable after 3 days so I stopped. I took Lexapro late last year, along with Klonopin, for six weeks, but quit right after stopping Klonopin. I had joined that SSRI website you mentioned and of course read all the negative stuff, which influenced me to stop the Lexapro. I really don’t know what’s best, I’m trying to do this w/o the SSRI’s, but it’s very, very difficult.

Benzo addicts trade pills for marijuana

Cannabis for Relief

Does anyone use cannabis for relief from withdrawal symptoms? If so, Indica or Sativa? Any particular strain for calm/pain etc…

I use a 2:1 CBD THC oil tincture. The oil goes right under your tounge and it helps a lot with sleep and nighttime anxiety. I also smoke regular high grade marijuana, usually a nice kush, it really takes the edge off, sometimes it makes me paranoid if my anxirety is real bad but otherwise it helps!

My experience. I CT’d and months later I was great for about 4 months then BAM, stomach pain, bad. Personally I think this time Im going to do a ton of probiotics, stay away from other drugs, less stress and more interaction with people and better non GMO diet. I did suffer from upper GI years before and I am a light smoker so that may have been my issue too. When I had this after the Benzos nothing seemed to help except,…benzos. Good for about 6 months after I reinstated. I was that bad that I did it again like an idiot but I had no insurance and was doubled over ALL day pacing back and forth by myself for weeks. Another hell. Tests showed nothing and I could not afford a scope. Best of luck to you and I hope you find better answers than from me.

Ashton devotee begs cult to bless root canal

Can having root canals re-done hinder healing?
« on: August 07, 2018, 08:56:36 am »

Hey! I’ve had an awful time tapering this year. I held for almost 3 months after gradually cutting 12% of my previous dose. However, the terror and depression just keep rearing their ugly heads. I tapered more last year and had little trouble.

I was starting to wonder if this may be because I’ve reached 5mg or if it’s an external factors. In June, my dentist discovered that my old root canals have gone bad. I had 7 dentist appointments to clear them out. I asked for a non-epi shot, but I’m still wondering if this has been keeping me from healing. I also took an antibiotic (Augmentin) in June.

I can deal with a long taper, but not when it’s like this all the time. I don’t know if I should hold or just keep going. Anyone?

Vaccine in WD/ Medical Exemption
« on: July 24, 2018, 08:29:56 pm »

[Buddie]

I work with kids and my workplace wants me to take the Tdap/tetanus shot. I hardly know what it’s for and have been avoiding it for a long time because I was so sick. My immune system is very weak in WD too. Question – is this shot safe, are there side effects/potential negative outcomes, and most importantly – how will it affect protracted WD? I go through enough hell as it is. Has anybody here taken it while experiencing terrible benzo symptoms?
Is there any way I can get a medical exemption for taking it and still work, if I don’t have a doctor who believes me about my condition?
How does a medical exemption work? Will most doctors refuse to give me one if I ask?

Thank you,
