Hi strawberry amazing
Welcome to the foroum well done for posting
So sorry to hear of what happened when you went away
I agree with eveything marmite has suggested I would go back to your gp and tell them what you are feeling either print this post out or write down bullet points medication isn't the only option and you will be able to choose what you want tell your go you don't want medication you want a therapy and see what they can advise and suggest to you
Take Care keep strong and keep talking

And the tears come streaming down your face,when you lose something you cant replace
Till now, I always got by on my own, I never really cared until I met you
No-one ever comes close to you

HI. I think it is about the individual and self control. It is your choice if you take medication. Its about weighing up the pros and cons. If you are not sure how often to take them I would go back to your GP to check and discuss your concerns about taking them with your doctor. I think nowadays it is recommended that benzodiazapines are only used for a short period of time due to the risk of addiction. There are other treatments available so if you dont want to take diazepam then dont be afraid to tell your doctor you dont want to take it and ask if is there anything else they can offer.

here are some links I looked up that may or may not be helpful.

I hope you can get some relief from your symptoms soon. xx

Hi,

I can really relate to where you are right now, being about the same age and in a very similar situation. I only recently realised I really need help and am also not really sure about drugs.
The way I see them is that they're good for getting back on your feet so that you can perhaps put more into the therapy stuff, which is really the long term solution.
I would maybe suggest going to the library and checking out some self-help books, or buying them if you're more comfortable with that. There are even some that are medically recommended so if you're worried about finding one that's no good there are ways to work it out.

This is the one I have and it is really good. The thing is that different things work for different people, so there's nothing wrong with kind of experimenting for a while. Some things just instantly don't click, but some things you have to stick with a bit longer before you can really tell.
Hope you're feeling okay
Alice
