Having a rough few weeks

Im back to taking Xanax a lot more often. Just keep having anxiety attacks and feeling hopeless, like my life is never going to change in the way I NEED it to. It will never be "a good time" to go out on disability. Do, I struggle through 42 hours a week 30 minutes from home with only a 30 minute lunch and no Other breaks. I've been in tears at work and I'm scared to do any filing after how I felt in that room a few days ago. I'm constantly overwhelmingly fatigued and feel like my life consists of nothing but work and sleep. :(
What I need is a sponsor or something to raise money for me to stay home. I don't think I'll ever feel better if I don't and things will continue to deteriorate.

I know how you feel about work. I get that alot and usually quit. Does your work have disability?

Can you find a advocte or someone who helps with disability claims?

For me, disability isn't enough but I had to go on it. If your docs are pushing you to do it I would do it.  There are ways of working through things, you may have to make some changes like where you live or something but your health is worth it.

Xanax is a powerful drug. I take klonopin and itmakes me very sleepy. I couldn't imagine trying towork on xanax, it must be very hard for you. (((Hugs)))

If you are working 8 hrs a day you should be getting 2 15 min breaks in addition to you're lunch.  If you aren't maybe you can break up your lunch.

Your life will get better. We go through bad and we think it will never end. It does! I was in rehab 24 years ago from drinking too much and there was another girl in there. She was trying to get off of Xanax. That is a strong antidepressant. She was going crazy crying and screaming. Screaming that she wanted to die. She had a family, but at the time it didn't matter. She was going crazy from those pills. Can you ask your doctor to change your pills. I hope you don't ever have to go throught what she went through. They even kicked her out before she was ready, because her insurance was up. Maybe a different pill will help and your life will get better hopefully soon. I know it doesn't feel like that right now but it will. Good Luck to you
