Making Mental Health Changes

One change over the last year of my mental illness life is antidepressants. I used to change them at least once a year, and a couple of times it was twice in one year.

My First Clonazepam Update

Here is a typical day on Ativan. I take 1mg in the morning. By noon-1pm I am already having major anxiety. I have to wait until about 5pm to take another 1m or 2mg based on the anxiety level.

In a typical week, I would have 3-4 panic attacks (as of recently) and I was a struggle every moment.
