Recently my husband asked me if I’ve given any thought to coming off my anxiety medication. I’m in two minds about it. On one hand, I’m curious to see how I’d fare; maybe I don’t need it any more. I’ve come a long way since my days were punctuated with panic attacks. On the other hand, I worry that despite my best efforts to address my anxiety in a holistic manner, I might only be as good as I am because of the meds. What if I come off them and find myself engulfed by anxiety again? Mostly, I’m hesitant to come off them because I don’t think I’d be doing it for me. I’d be doing it so as to feel more socially acceptable.
