Does anyone else feel like a failure when they have to take medication? It's funny, because I have taken Celexa for years now and I don't have a problem with taking it. But when I have to take Ativan, I get really discouraged with myself and feel like a failure for having to take it. But it helps SOOOOOOOO much! And I only have to take a small amount and only occasionally. Does anyone else feel this way? Also, how do you accept that you will have to deal with this for the rest of your life? I have had anxiety for almost 20 years now. Not continuously though. But everytime I get over a bad "episode" I mistakenly think I have conquered it once and for all and then when it comes again I get extremely discouraged and think "I can't do this again!" Can anyone else identify with this? How do you deal?
