My Love Affair

Yes, I was prescribed xanax by my dr. for anxiety. No one ever told me they were addictive, I just thought it's xanax just a lil pill.

Well, that pill was going to kill me or I was going to kill it. Love hate relationship by all means.

I did not have the funds to go into detox and take time off from work, so I did it on my own. I had been on around 2mg for 8 mths and that has got to be the hardest thing to come off of.

For 2 wks I was a nervous wreck, couldn't sleep, shaky hands and I even threw up. By the grace of some unseen force I made it through because like I said it was either gong to kill me or I was gong to have to kill it.

I have been off xanax for a long while now and I don't crave it. If I have a panic attack I have a friend who gets them and if the attck is so bad I'll take .25mg. Theres no way in hell I am going through that again, I am just lucky I made it out alive. God bless.
