Thanks Mystic...I am afraid of meds believe or not the only med I am not afraid of is the xanax and the reason being is that I have been on the lowest dose which is 0.25 since I started with panic 16 years ago and have never had to increase. The only time I have had to take a higher dose is when I use to let my panic attacks get so far in depth that I needed the extra to calm me down, but I have learned over the years what I feel like when one is going to occur so I just cut to the chase and take one before it gets out of control- of course that has been 16 years off and on with only taking xanax as needed maybe 20 a year. A prescription use to last me a full year. It has only been the last year that I have been taken one 0.25 mg before bed and only before I go to a restaurant or a function with a lot of people ie concert, etc...but I have never ever abused them and now that I have been off them for 4 weeks since the Lexapro kicked in it just makes me feel like I am regressing to have to take them the past few nights.

I probably have to increase and the only thing that scares me about that is how many times do you have to increase before you can't increase anymore. I am so scared of medication but I am also so sick of anxiety and panic that at this stage of the game I am ready to try anything to live a anxiety free life.

thanks for the prayers, you guys are all in my prayers. We will all get through this together...I am so glad I found you guys - thanks to Lexy. By the way, where has Lexy been? I know she is back from boca.

Luv ya (hugs&Kisses) Good night!
