Relapse

It's been a month since I was discharged from the hospital. I'm down to a quarter Xanax a night and I've started taking Rilax tablets as well twice a day. I've also been going for regular massages and trying to get in some regular exercise.

Yesterday I was a little stressed about some back pain I've been having, so had some anxiety attacks around 4am. Not good but not awful either. At least I know what is happening with my body. Unfortunately I didn't know why it happened since I was fast asleep and suddenly woke up to panic attacks. I like to think that it's the Xanax withdrawal hitting me because I have no other explanation. I'm trying to relax a bit more today and see if it helps, also plan to do some jogging this evening just to reduce the adrenaline and up the endorphines in my body. Hope it works because I'm a bit on edge today.
