Going cold turkey without my anxiety meds

Going cold turkey without my anxiety meds

I never knew the term what is going cold turkey till a friend told me. Anyway my mom and many religious people, Assume I’m an addict to my anxiety medication. So on the spur of the moment I decided to go off my anxiety meds for just over a week to prove to myself I’m not an addict.

Day1 : was okay didn’t think much of it.
Day2: things began to get complicated.  Feeling such as fear and hopelessness have become magnified. I had trouble sleeping because I was terrified to falling asleep in case criminals broke in. Fear of never succeeding or getting a job was crazy like never before. By the middle of the week I felt like I was going out of my mind.

Come end of the week I already had 2 panic attacks and threw up. Feeling very sick and noxious.

Maybe I am not addicted but I am helpless with out it. I need to find my faith or some way to start loving my life again.
