*Xanax is getting such a bad name. It has saved my life.
I've been on Xanax since 1994. Most years, I took 2 pills - that's it. In fact, I always threw most of the pills out because they expire after 2 yrs. Knowing I had some in case of an emergency kept me functional. When I don't have any, on top of the anxiety, I have a Crohns attack (losing control of my bowels) and an asthma attack, which exacerbates my anxiety. Feels like I am going to die. That's why I stay home alone. I need Xanax.
