If I had a benzo I would have used it, that’s for sure. I tried all my coping mechanisms and they didn’t work. I was pretty distressed.
As I said it’s ok now.
I’m toying with the idea of getting 2 or 3 benzos a month from my doctor but it could be a slippery slope for me as I spent months coming off them.
“When you’re going through hell, keep going”.
Ok @everhopeful please try this with me it actually might be a good idea. I’ve been suggested by my pdoc too. What do you think about trying mindfulness or meditation?
@everhopeful was there something specific that caused your distress?
I’ve got a meditation “machine”
And it didn’t really help this time. It’s helpful in general though.
I don’t think mindfulness stuff would have helped this time either.
Not that I could see. It just seemed like an off day. I used to get them on 10mg abilify but this was the first one since I upped my dose to 15mg. But it seemed more severe.
We have to find something that works
I hope it blows over soon and you start feeling better.
The glasses shown in the photo of the procyon system remind me of this.
Full moon. I’m prepared to believe it actually… !
Glad you are feeling better now @everhopeful.
I know how you feel.
I avoid taking Benzos also.
I worked too hard to get off of them.
My cousin went to hell on a scholarship…
Happens to me too. Although I have two important coping mechanisms, sometimes they fail. Just remember, these moods are impermanent and will pass out of your mind soon enough.
What is the photo of?
