Time to come clean
Oct 25, 2005
I have been taking something for about a year in order to fall asleep. And as most things go, I've had to increase what it takes to help me fall asleep. First some Tylenol PM would do the job, but now it's up to some Ambien and an antihistimine. I get worried because I take so much throughout the day.. zoloft, xanax and then at the night I take more stuff. I like the feeling that drugs such as xanax and ambien make me feel. Takes the harshness out of the day. My boyfriend is in Iraq and I haven't heard from him in about a week and a half, and I've been having to take a lot of stuff to get through the day. I really worry that I have a drug problem. Even though it's all prescribed, I just feel as though I take it too much. I've spoken to my dr but haven't told him just how much it takes to get me to fall asleep. I think I might finally come clean on Thursday about how much I take during a day (usually 2-3 xanax, some antihistimes, and ambien) I just don't know what he'll do or say. Maybe I can ask for Lunesta or something.. that would help me fall asleep for a while, and I could taper, like how I had to switch from Paxil to Zoloft because going off of Paxil on its own was too hard and I needed something there as a cushion.
