I take the generic brand of Xanax with no problems. It helps take the edge off.

Until you stop taking that stuff. If it's taking the edge of things it's working. Which means that when you need to come off it probably won't be easy. But unfortunately if you do need to come off you probably won't want to.

Congratulations on the upcoming baby! And your wife really is a saint- I can say that without knowing details! I'm glad you appreciate her. Be sure to tell her - if you haven't. It can make a world of difference to hear "thank you for all you have struggled through ".

Stay strong! I have faced some really dark points, feeling lost and hopeless about my family's future. But we have shelter, food and many more things that so many in the world call luxury. That helps me keep above the water.

Thank you so much.

You have a great attitude.

I have told her, I can't express my appreciation enough though.

I had her read this and she smiled. Its very sweet of you to take the time to write this.

Yeah TBH they come in packs of 28 - the night before the flight a bottle of wine and 3 blue ones, another when I wake up, another bottle of wine and a couple more. Then if I wake on the plane, a glass of wine or a beer and perhaps one more.

So yeah, 2 really would work but given the option I take more.

Next time I fly my Mrs will be fairly heavily pregnant and the 3 year old will need entertaining so perhaps this is the opportunity to do it without medication.

Ha! I have been there my friend.
5 or more blue footballs, a couple shots of patron, and a couple beers makes for a very comfortable flight. Like a comfy time machine situation. (Also idiotic and potentially fatal, so no one should. Many do. Many regret it)

Part of me is sad I have to give that up but it helps that these hard times have left me with much more control over my anxiety.

Anxiety is still very much a part of who I am but it is no longer threatening to me after having endured the withdrawals and associated heightened anxiety.

Today is day 22 after quitting nearly cold turkey, still getting better

Well, I can relate to going through hell from your partner. Though not the same circumstances, I stuck it out. And while I knew my husband appreciated me staying strong in his weak times, he hadn't expressed it much. Then one day he did. And apologized for breaking me in ways that he had never intended (I don't think anyone really intends to break others, life just happens). It was a very needed acknowledgment that helped me to heal.

I don't know if I really do have a great attitude, because I do get very low. But really, there are people that don't know where they will sleep that night, or if they will eat today, or tomorrow.

I'm glad I brought a smile to your wife! That makes me very happy! I made a total stranger smile
