Help on breaking through the safe zone

Posted by AndyD on July 13, 2003, at 7:31:06

If this Klonapin works will it help me overcome this safe zone, the anticipatory anxiety associated with leaving my safe zone? Does anyone have any other tips for getting over this irrational fear? I managed to overcome it last year and actually left the zone everyday for a week just because I could...but than when I had to go...a few weeks later it was back and I failed to go out of pure anticipatory anxiety...Make any sense at all? Will this K help that?

I think it will help. But, it's a treatment, not a cure. If you are a person that experiences "abnormal" amounts of anxiety, you may still feel some of that. The Klonopin can help to keep it to a manageable level.... and some anxiety is normal. Some have good results with behavioral therapy combined with a med. I had to realize that anxiety and fears would be something I had to deal with (with help). I had been untreated for long time and probably have had diffculties with it since chilhood. I expected it to just "go away", maybe you will be lucky and all the weirdness will go way. I don't want you to expect that, but if it happens - great for you. Changes happen gradually and are hard work for some of us, unfortunately.
