I have difficulty taking medications long term. Hence I have been taking xanax occationally when I need a brake from my seasless disease. I have always hated it because that class of medication brings on depression in me if I have to take it more than two days in a row. Recently I had a whole rash of memories come up that I had successfully hiden from myself for 40 years. The good news is I guess I now remember because I have gotten healthy enough to handle it. The bad news is I don't know how and it is horrible. I took xanax for a brake but I really needed at least a few days. The doctor prescibed something that not only did not work to relieve my head but my legs felt so heavy I could barely walk and walking is something I definately need to be doing to relieve myself. It pissed me off and made me feel extemely hopeless. I ran into a friend and she gave me a suboxone tablet. This drug is used to aleviate opiate withdrawl symptoms. I took a quarter tablet and I was not only relieved but I rested very well. Why is it not being used or researched for more uses? I am totally pissed off. The class of psych drugs suck! They all are only thought to be long term with sick intolerable side effects. I seriously need a brake now and then, some kind of true releif. I feel it's out there but the doctors won't prescribe it. Like this woman, now she knew what I needed and she knew it would help. Thank God for her. Anyone ever tried it? Or heard of it?

I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
