U think right.

My P suggested minor tranquilizers and I said no.

>I think there are better medications out there -- including both SSRIs and atypical APs. They work. My own experience with benzos colors this -- I dissociate long before I'm calmed by them, and I have had the paradoxical agitation from them (although I don't remember, since I couldn't form memories at the time...)

I know what dissociate means R, and I don't do that at all on them. Maybe it is because it's been soooo many years that I've been on them. Instead, I AM CALMED. My tremors got really bad when I went into a DBT group for the first time beginning of week. They aren't too bad unless I am in an unfamiliar environment.

I did ask and haven't heard from them.

> And why you're set on benzos, rather than on some other options?

They have been the only thing to help me. A suggestion by my P of a minor tranq' scares me, so I wanted to get as close to this as I could w/o going there. I've tried so many ADs, anti-psychotics, mood stabilizers, and on and on and on, and they either don't alleviate anxiety or they actually heighten it. I often have an increase in ideation, a placated zombie feel, and I dissociate and am unable to form memories on them.(?)

> Then again, it sounded to me as though you didn't want my input, so those questions are basically academic.

I'm sorry I've made u feel I didn't want your input. I may be defensive and even near angry. I feel an undercurrent of pointing fingers and judgment.

Of course I want your input and I appreciate it.

> Good luck.

thanks, 5f
