> i presume the reason your doc wont prescribe you benzos is because you mentioned you had a past "substance abuse" issue.

I understand the substance abuse issue as a reason, but my main concern with that is how is a person supposed to get better without effective medication with their treatment? I felt anxious all of the time, and all that was available to me was alcohol.

But, I realize the main reason my pdoc can't prescribe benzos: He's only available at the schools counceling center a few hours a week. Benzos need much closer monitoring than that, its hard to get an appointment when I need one, and he's not available over the phone. So I will have to explore other options. Thanks for the book suggestion, I'll check it out.
