I know what a challenge this can be and sometimes I tell myself that maybe I'm taking to long with this recovery and retraining of my thoughts and my life. I see that so many people on here say how much they want there lives back. I figure that there were things in our past that contributed to us feeling the way we do now and as hard as it is for me to say I guess I really don't want my old life back and I guess to be honest I guess we all want a new life. A new life with new thoughts and new ways of thinking that are less judgmental and less reactive. I know how much of a challenge this time has been for me and it takes a lot to change inside and to change our thoughts and the way we tink and what our judgments are and how we come to conclusions about what we think of different situations. This is hard work and thats something that I know no one wants to hear. Changing your life hurts! physically and emotionally. I think spending time writing about this and rationalizing about the thoughts we're having and the physical sensations that we are going through helps. I know how difficult it is for me sometimes and I'm hard on myself because I think that I should be a lot farther along that I am. If any of you start feeling that way thats just not the truth and thats what anxiety does and is. Habits of not thinking the things in our lives that are true. So don't beat yourselves up for putting a time limit on how you progress with this stuff. Everybody's different. We all have one thing in common though, we all want to get our lives back on track and get better at coping with what anxiety causes and why and understanding how to weaken it's hold on us through different coping and learning skills. I just wanted to remind everyone here to keep on some kind of recovery program and to always keep moving forward if it's only an inch at a time.Learning how better not to react to the bait that anxiety throws at us.I guess I kinda ramble on here when I'm going through a spell of this and thanks for listening! I like getting advice and reassurance from my friends on here and I'm glad that there is a place to go to get that. Reminding ourselves that this is just anxiety and we've just reacted to something that really and truly isn't anything for us to fear! I love all you on here and I think all of you have strength and courage for facing this stuff and working on it! OO,Garrett

I have several side effects from this drug. Diagnosed about 18 months ago, only issues were droopy left eyelid and occasional double vision. The last few weeks, eyelid drops almost everyday, so started taking this drug 60mg 3-4 times daily. Now, when I talk a lot, or eat meals, tongue feels swollen, talk with a lisp, some words I cannot pronounce, have to urinate every 20 minutes, up 3 or 4 times...
