I can understand why you don't want to get back on medication full time, but sometimes it's just what is needed. However, there are some things you can do to try and manage your anxiety. You can practice deep breathing and meditation, yoga, positive self talk. Having your friend come by for ahwile is a great idea. Having support helps alot and gets your mind focused elseware.
For me my anxiety usually gets worse around my period. I have been on Prozac to help. I took it the way your dr prescribed the zoloft...two weeks before and whatnot. It helped, but eventually I had to get back on it full time.
Keep exercising and don't beat yourself up for having to take your Klonopin. It's OK. Try to accept where you are at and just go with the flow. It will get beter. Do you have any relaxation CD's? They are helpful too.
Hope you feel better soon.
