  1. This is from January. My doc isn’t anti-benzo. Like I said she warned me from the beginning she’d never increase xanax past 1mg. I knew that going in. I’m now on 1.5. If my doc were anti-benzo, I wouldn’t be able to explain why. Docs all have their things.
  2. Welcome. I hope you find everything you’re looking for and get the support you need . 💕
  3. That’s sort of why I deleted my reply. Not really helpful, but was trying to be. Heh.
  4.  I give. Black sheep. Yet again. 

  5. No idea. Was just giving my experience with dx and same symptoms.
  6. That’s what my initial reply was. It sounds exactly like what I’ve just been dx’d with-avoidant personality disorder.
  7. Nm just another one of my stupid pointless replies. Sorry!
  8. Slept well for 2 nights in a row. 🎉 yay! I think Tramadol might be messing with my mood a bit since it affects S and N and I’m already on 2 AD’s. Didn’t take it last night, and feel better today. If you’re on SSDI payment should be in your bank account today. Yay! Took Abby on her walk and swam for an hour...thank goodness cause I cannot stop eating. Still feeling stressed out over a couple of medium sized issues but once I force myself to deal with them I’ll finally be nearly stress free. More yay.
  9. Anxious, can barely inhale. Oodles of painful memories came out of nowhere most of the day. And a bad, bad stomach ache to boot.
  10. It was from twitter but I copied the link not sure what happened! Glad you liked it as much as I died laughing. The guy’s a genius.
  11. Thanks for responding! No bathtub, no hot tub. Can’t take any nsaids because of gastric bypass. 😐 I do take very hot showers, believe me. Long, long ones. 😂 no round doorknobs, only the lever type here. But I’m about to try one of Abby’s balls. I do press the knots I can get to, but some of them hurt too much to reach to. She did call in some baclofen? I think that’s what it’s called. I’ll get that tomorrow. Fortunately I’ve paid enough copays for the year so the rest are free for the rest of the year! I do go in the pool for an hour each morning, but that’s mainly for stretching and it helps a lot to relax. Thanks for such a thoughtful reply.
  12. Thank you for your input. If there were any other decent docs that took my insurance I’d switch in a heartbeat. I just cannot get over how *ill* she made me feel when she’s supposed to be a pretty good doctor. But I’m hungry 24/7 from my medication and I have to watch closely or I’ll be 30# heavier. Grr. Thank you for the suggestions on how to approach it.
  13. My dog has a couple of balls. Can’t afford to pay more than a buck at the dollar store.
  14. She actually did recommend the tennis balls! I’ll have to wait until I get paid, but I’m definitely gonna try ! Unfortunately, my heating pad didn’t come with me to the hotel and can’t afford to buy a new one. Icy hot would be hard to apply because it hurts so much to reach back there. Actually just remembered I have a ball or two of Abbys. Thank you for the help!
  15. The doctor just offered to call it in, thank goodness. I just need to get some pain relief, anything. And be able to check my freakin blind spot when driving! Thank you. She just called it in so I’m hoping it helps at least some. I can’t even check my blind spot right now!
  16. Yes, I think that’s the one she mentioned! I’m wondering if that one would be less likely to mess up my mood. Yes, pretty sure that was it! Does it work well?
  17. Meh. Well, maybe if the muscle med works well enough I won’t need the Tramadol. I hope.
  18. Very good to know. She brought up one that I think started with a B. But I was scared to ty another. But now that 200 Tramadol isn’t doing it, something needs to give.
  19. Yes, I need something pretty strong. She felt my neck and said it feels like ropes on both sides. I’ve never heard of soma. I’ll ask her about it. Is it ok on moods?
  20. Thank you!!! See? Where the fuck does she get off diagnosing an eating disorder simply off the fact that I’m strictly aiming for a weight of 185?, 🤬🤬🤬 Thank you so much! I mean, ffs I’m still in plus size jeans! Size 16! Is there anything wrong with aiming for 14 just to get out of plus size clothes? I worked fucking hard to lose 200#! It didn’t come easily, I had to work out fora good couple hours a day.
