X as in Xanax

Yep, the anti-anxiety drug.

I have never been much of a drug taker except for my diabetes medication and an occasional over the counter drug for various reasons. I was on anti-depressants for a while after my mom passed away, but I did not like the way they made me feel so I weaned myself off of them.

However, sometimes anxiety gets the best of me, especially at night and I find I can't sleep because my mind won't shut off.

That's where these little pills come in handy.

0.25 mg is the lowest dose and I usually break it in half.

Does the trick and there is nothing wrong with a little help sometimes!

I feel that way about my 0.5mg Ativan. It calms the shakiness I sometimes get inside. I rarely take them, but when I need one, they work just great!!! Druggies, aren't we? LOL

Su-sieee! Mac said...

Yup. Sometimes we need a little something to help us get over. Nothing wrong with that. :-)

So good that it works to help you sleep; not a thing in the world wrong with it.

I was wondering what you'd come up with for "x". :)

I'm sorry to hear about your mom. I was also a mess when my mother died years ago. She was my best friend and it was the hardest thing I've ever had to go through. We do what we have to do to get through. It's perfectly normal. Enjoy the rest of your day... :)

I'm glad you have something that works! I understand about the brain not shutting off!

Donna said...

Yep, sometimes we All need a helping hand..

There's nothing wrong with getting help as needed.
