I don't know much about anti anxiety meds, but I do know she sounds like a little kid that needs reassurance, and also wants to control the situation at the same time. Reminds me of Rollo's term "Children with Dynamite". Further, I would guess that you are seeing things on the "glass is 1/2 full empty" mode while getting off these meds.

Suggest you consider the following:

  1. Take a more gradual reduction of the meds if it gets too bad.
  2. Give her a little more assurance/comfort than usual.
  3. Avoid going too far, or too beta, while giving more comfort.
  4. Don't let the reduction of meds screw up your life up so bad, that it could take years for you to recover. Even worse, you would end up back on even more meds.

Again, she is the child here, you need to lead her as best you can with this withdrawal. Most of all, take care of yourself to avoid over-doing it. Best

Sounds like you answered your own post and know what's up. What specifically are you asking for an opinion on?

Couple of years ago? The program is about a year old.

Listen up - my wife threw all her anti depressants today. All of it. She weaned her self off. Know how ? She wanted to.

I found thus place in March and have been busting my ass on the work. You know what ? I'm back to the Rock of Gibraltar she married and was attracted to originally, giving her some stability

Stay in frame and mentally prepare yourself for the day with a few moments of meditation. There is nothing stronger that your mind.

When she flings shit, completely ignore it and realize in a couple hours, it will be something different.

No, you don't need her. You need you, chilled the fuck out with a margarita in one hand the other with an open book on a beach enjoying your life

Good job breaking free from the pharma-cratic inquisition!!

Take it slooow. Especially with benzodiazepines.

It sounds like you telling her has made it more difficult. Maybe pause, rewind a little bit and then keep her in the dark about it until you're off?

Just my two cents.

Kudos for having the guts to break free of the pharmaceutical roller coaster. That takes balls and belief in yourself. Good going, and keep you head high, m8. You'll get where you need to be!

You can kill a man, but you can't kill an idea.
