> I think you mentioned before that you went ahead and got a prescription from your doc. for Xanax. Are you taking that at all during the day?
All he gave me was a prescription for .5 mg. to be divided at .25 for the morning (which does absolutely nothing for me) and the remaining .25 to add to the Klonopin to help me sleep. We have very little margin to work with, with the Xanax since my dose of Klonopin is 3.75 mg/day.

> By the way (just my opinion), I don't agree with the poster who recommended that you try opiates.
Yes, I thought it was rather nuts. This kind of post does me no good at all and even attempting such a thing could land me in a Thai jail.

LYNDA,
You have not the slightest idea what I'm going through now. I had to go to the dermatologist yesterday. Have folliculitis, have to take strong penicillin 2x per day. (Normally I do well on penicillin and am never allergic) but this stuff gave me some diarrhea), plus ointment which I have to apply to several places, mostly on my foot. My body has evidently been weakened so my defenses were down. In any case, I'm at a new and dangerous low, in terms of feeling practically non-functional, terrified of the future, having enough pocket money for the trip, fearing additional costly visits to the hospital for the skin problem. i could go on and on. I'm an absolute mess and truly wonder how I will ever get through this, get those meds, be able to drag myself onto the plane. The word used in cognitive therapy is "catastrophizing" i.e. imagining the worst of the worst and I simply can't stop it at all. please stay in touch. Maybe I'll write again tonight.
