I just moved in with my boyfriend about a month ago after a roommate of about three years up and moved out with her boyfriend without much notice. This is the second time that we have lived together, and I though things were going great. I was working a lot and he was having a rough patch and we weren't spending as much time together. I was taking a lot of zanex as well. He decided to break up with me for us to become whole people on our own and now I feel horrible. I'm clean (have been for about a week) but I can't stop the panic attacks. I don't know what to do. How does a person manage these wants and desires. I recognize that there is a problem. I see it all happening, but I still get carried away. What can I do for myself?

If I understand correctly, you were taking the medication for anxiety/panic disorder and you'be just stopped taking it? What dose were you taking? Why did you stop taking it?

If this was done suddenly, it's no wonder you're having an increase in panic attacks.

I wasn't taking a prescription. I was just getting it and managing my anxiety attacks that way. How long exactly does detox take? I only got to the point where I was taking 2-3 bars a day.

They are arrogant, entitled, exploitative, self-absorbed, and forceful. But at the same time, they are also charming, persuasive, and attractive—making it difficult to navigate their treacherous webs. How do narcissists get this way? When trying to explain the development of the trait, current thinking tends to emphasize the roles that...

Now we have some hope of making progress.” ~Niels Bohr Social media is indeed a paradox in that it has the power to be both good and evil simultaneously. Ironically, one of the most harmful things about social media is the abundance of “positive” messages. You’re probably wondering how something that creates so much...

On Those Hard Days When You Feel Like Nothing You Do Matters by Marie Shanley, Tiny Buddha April 4, 2021 “Just a reminder in case your mind is playing tricks on you today: You matter.

By extension, they may be more reactive to negative things in life. It is one piece of evidence to suggest that these metabolic problems are related to issues with how we perceive and deal with things that stress all of us out."

https://metro.co.uk/2017/08/07/sometimes-youll-dread-therapy-6833162/#ixzz4pOEImUG4 By Ellen Scott, Lifestyle editor There will come a day, after months of waiting, desperate for some kind of help, that you won’t want to do therapy. This might coincide with the time you decide to stop taking your meds, out of some mixture of not feeling that they’re working anymore, the return of your self-destructive impulses, and your self-reassurance that actually you’re fine. You will consider not...
