  1. Not as tired as I want to be. Waking up at 5:30am tomorrow means I should be falling asleep any minute. My brain has desired to fight that.
  2. thank you both. definitely a situation of different things work better for different people. The 0.25mg leads to a feeling of normalcy that I haven't had in a while (I had it when I was with luvox somewhat), to the degree that I remember what "normal" feels like. I'm going to take my second dose in about an hour (the hours are off because of me waking up later than normal. I can't imagine coming anywhere close to 1mg, much less 3mg.
  3. thank you both. it helps to hear different perspectives. i haven't heard of accountability partners! interesting. I occasionally have doubt when I hear the other person say things that are really helpful, but I don't really need to have doubt because there's nothing against both of them being helpful. Both were listed as willing to sponsor, so I think either in theory could have been an option.
  4. I hear you. I’m having to decide for the first time in my life and it’s been a bit overwhelming, but my trick was making my pdoc happy. I checked her coverage and asked her request and have gone with that. The insurance company handout says not to choose based on doctors because that can change, but I don’t think they understand how important a good pdoc is.
  5. yeah, I've tried my fair share of non-benzoanti-anxiety meds and i've gone through most of hte benzos for one reason or another. I think mine is having me take it reularly because she's evaluating whether Xanax XR will be a good option for me. But if I don't need it I can skip it.
  6. thanks Rabbit! I'm glad that it's helping also. Fingers crossed that it'll cover me at work (taking it when I leave my condo and then once mid-afternoon), which is the big test. this is promising though.
  7. I took my first dose of Xanax ever (0.25) today around 11. I felt it kick in by 1130. It felt like what I imagine normal feels like. Brain at a reasonable speed, no physical symptoms, etc. is this placebo effect? Or can a small dose have an effect that quickly?
  8. Thanks @notloki, that makes sense. I hadn’t heard of it. So I guess it makes more sense for me to try a baby dose of klonopin in the morning than to try mixing things again.
  9. Knock on wood (no guarantees), these laws will get challenged in the lower level federal courts and overturned. At that point, we would be relying on the various court of appeals denying. I also don’t see them making it all the way to SCOTUS. I could be wrong, but they strike me as too blatantly unconstitutional.
  10. Both are fasting. Neither my pdoc nor I know the reason for the change. They weren't taken that far apart.
  11. I'm largely looking for ideas on how to handle the anxiety related to the transition back. I'm going to full-time after about a six month break, so it's a pretty big change.
  12. Hidden Figures. whats one good thing from today?
