  1. Clonidine 0.2mg every night before bed. Xanax 0.25mg as needed. If i know i'm going to be encountering a auditor at work, i take a dose of xanax. I get about a 2 hour window of super cool confidence.
  2. I do remember you Will, and that cool interactive timeline website you created. I rarely come here anymore... pretty much don't blush that often anymore. Not giving a damn what other people think does help stop the viscous cycle. But I do take meds every day too. I'm ok with this as life is much better and almost normal. I do still have panic attacks with major blushing maybe one to two times a year...but thats much better than the days of having them once or twice a day.
  3. I remember your first ETS. Hard too imagine needing another. I understand your decision though. This is your life, and it's only here on earth for a short while. Live the best you can. I wish you good luck in your second surgery scarface.
  4. Thanks for keeping us updated after all these years.
  5. Thank you for your story, It's these testimonials that made me change my mind about having the surgery 10 years ago. Now that i'm in my mid 30's, i'm glad i didnt as i've managed to improve my blushing/sweating through other means.
  6. Dude, those are some really big words right there. I just have a problem with turning red...and stuff.
  7. Yep. Staying red all day from a trigger (like bending over) doesnt happen too much anymore. Sure, i still get red when i bend over, it just goes away in a few minutes. I found that my facial skin was way too dry, causing the redness to remain for hours after a trigger. But, if you keep your face and body hydrated well, it should go back to normalish in a few minutes. Drink lots of water, use a real good lotion after showering, and if your water is heavily chlorinated, use one of those showerhead filters. They really do help, as the chlorine in city water really dries my skin and makes it red all day.
  8. That job does exist! My wife is a transcriptionist for the local hospital. She works from our home over the internet with a specialized computer. Full time, at home. Makes more money than me too. I'm so jealous of her. I'm the one that needs an at home job! But in all reality, if i didnt go to my place of employment, i'd probably get worse, and become too reclusive.
  9. Yes, I pet my dog every day and it works...better than oxytocin spay.
  10. I was reminded of a thread here: http://www.esfbchannel.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=2567&start=0 A member here tried it (aftershock), 'oxycalm' was oxytocin in spray form. Did nothin for him really.

    Xanax

    I like to take a new medication in the privacy of my own home before I go out into public. You never know how you may react to it, or what the proper dose is. I'd start with a maximum of 0.25mg. It takes about 15-30 minutes to 'kick in'. Then lasts about 2-3 hours. It's similar to having a glass of wine, but without the drunk feeling (unless you take too much). This can be and should be only a PRN medication. You wont get addicted after one or two usese. It would take continued use and or abuse of it for problems to arise. If you are 'at risk' for abuse potential, then I probably wouldnt use it. It simalar in a way to alcohol, a drink now and then isnt going to hurt most people. It does offer excellent relief in stessful or blush provoking situations. But would probably put me to sleep at a funeral.
  12. Yeah, I’ll be there! Oh wait, London.. that’s on the other side of the world. Never mind. But hey, If you decide to have a meet up in the middle of Idaho-then count me in!
  13. True to a certain degree, Heath ledger and MJ were taking copious amounts of opiates and several types of sedatives when they OD'ed. Xanax and beta blockers are OK if taken as prescribed by your *normal* doctor. I’ve been Rx’ed both for years with no problems.
