Hi - I'm Don from Australia. I find this time of year particularly difficult as it seems to highlight just how lonely I am. I have been dealing with social anxiety and depression for many years - I was hooked on benzos (mostly Xanax) for years and years and finally got away from them about 4 years ago when I was put on Lexapro. I didn't really like that either so now I'm off that too. I'm now basically just trying to come to terms with the after-effects of taking all those pills for so long - all the lost memories etc.
Hope to get to know some of you anyway.
