These last couple of weeks have been great. I have much more vitality during the day after switching from Xanax to klonopin. I still have anxiety issues like hyperventilating, nervousness, but they are minimized. I sometime wonder could it be the drugs taking control or me taking control back. Delusion of granduer. But as always I'll relish the time now because the road is a long and hard on. Oh for those that I have not mention and that is a tapping technique and that is a method taught by my structual therapist and it goes like this. 1st tap the inner sides of your palm together then tap the top of of your head then fore head then top of your eye lid they've sides of you eyes thebottom of your eyes then the top of your lip then bottom then to the chest starting inward then outward and back in. And repeat practice over and over while repeating this this rhythm, this is just anxiety , I'm okay. Try it for a while and see how you feel. It takes alot of practice but it works for me.

I am glad the meds are working for you!The tapping is verry interesting.Is it because your re-focussing, tapping and the touch method at the sametime that makes it work?I remember when i had a young therapist she said tiuch something around you when you feel an attack starting.

We\'ll probably you and I have the same therapist. He\'s much older now. I thought it wouldn\'t work but after a few tries, I believed in it. Here\'s a funny story that just recently happened at work. There was a crisis going on & 2 of my bosses were debating on the situation which was also stressing me out because I\'m in the middle of their heated debate. I just started tapping in front of them and trust me I don\'t mean to disrespect them. So I just kept tapping which kept me calm. The bosses saw that and was wondering what was going I doing so I explained to them that you guys are stressing me out and this is my relief and they started laughing and move away. What else can you lose....
