I miss my ex terribly. Like it gives me anxiety attacks at time to stay away from him. It has been 4yrs and I tried everything to move on. There is a boy who loves me as well but I do not feel ready to love anyone.
I had been waiting to feel better. Two year living on xanax. Now that I just stopped I still feel like I am not going to be able to live without him. I am not contacting him but it is really difficult. I am also on fluoxetine which diminishes my sexual attraction for my ex. Whenever I stop meds, I yearn for him.
I hope that you successfully stopped Xanax altogether and been off it for a while (?) Fluoxetine, brand name Prozac, reads like a much better choice.
You wrote that you miss your ex terribly, that it gives you “anxiety attacks at time to stay away from him. It has been 4yrs“- 4 years since the relationship with him ended, but it hasn’t been 4 years since you last had contact with him.. When was the last time you had contact with him and what was the nature of the contact/ interactions since the breakup four years ago?
“I miss my ex terribly. Like it gives me anxiety attacks at time to stay away from him… I still feel like I am not going to be able to live without him…. Whenever I stop meds, I yearn for him.Will I ever be cured of feeling like this?“-
– this anxiety about not having him in your life, the yearning for him- it is not because He really is The One and Only, but because it feels like he is the one and only. For too many people it felt this way but.. at one point on- it didn’t feel this way anymore.
It may be that you feel this way because growing up you were scared and lonely a lot of the time, felt sad and alone too many times, for too long (?)
