Earlier this year I had been prescribed Lorazepam to address my anxiety, and it really did help. However, I stopped using it 4 months ago and I now find myself in worse shape. Anxiety used to help me perform under pressure, but now I'm inclined to run and hide when faced with uncomfortable situations.
Is this common? I feel like I've fucked up a natural defense mechanism by using anti-anxiety meds, and I'm hoping I can naturally get back on track.
