    Trying a new approach

    I've suffered from anxiety for over 30 years. This has been quite debilitating at times, although I have generally always been able to function as far as the world is concerned.

    Lying voices that are annoying. I tried to be friends..

    This is the first time I write about this: I hear a voice from time to time that nags me saying: "I f***ed my mom.* I think the voice originally came from the fear of a demon or something. I don't believe in demons anymore at all, I'm way down to earth these days. However, I also have...

    Have you ever had a Dr who did NOT understand SEVERE Panic Disorder?

I've had poorly treated anxiety (Panic Disorder, GAD, and PTSD) pretty much all of my adolescent and adult life, many times requiring ER visits (just to be hydrated, and given benzos or benzo injections -- beyond embarrassing), and leaving with...

    Waking nightmares

    I keep having unwanted, horrible waking nightmares that I can’t control or stop. It’s driving me crazy! I don’t know what to do! Dr will just give me more pills and refer me to iTalk. Which is no good for me.

    I Did Something Really Stupid Totally By Accident

    I take a lot of meds, including Seroquel, trazadone, escitalopram, and zopiclone. I used to be on 15 mg of zopiclone, but now I am down to 4.5 mg under my psychiatrist's supervision. I've been reducing by 0.5 mg per month, but it's still really hard. So I've been taking melatonin. At first...
