Ativan

Do you feel that people take advantage of you due to your illness?

Because of my anxiety with OCD and depression I am not as assertive as I need to be sometimes. It's hard for me to say NO. I have no confidence in myself. I feel like some people use this against me or for their benefit. It's so frustrating. Have you ever felt this way? If so, how do you handle it?

Does anyone take anxiety medication that doesn’t make them tired?

I am currently on Ativan on an as needed basis but I can’t function at work on it- it makes me too drowsy. Does anyone have any suggestions I can bring to my doctor when I see him in two weeks? Thanks!

Abuse - especially in the workplace

Do you think there is a correlation between having depression or bipolar disorder and being abused? Has anyone felt like they areistreated, looked down on, even harassed in their places of work? Is this normal? Do we open ourselves up to it or do people take advantage of our disorders?
