Today I have 131 Days clean after being a prisoner to Benzo's for over 25 years.... I have taken pretty much all the Benzos - Xanax, Valium, Ativan, Klonopin.... They all are miserable and Hell to get off of.... Looking for others getting clean off of these crazy pills...
Congratulations of being off benzo's for 131 days after taking them for 25 years! How are you feeling? What was your withdrawal like?
I am withdrawing from 5 years of being on various benzo's. Am withdrawing and having emotional/mental symptoms such as fear and doom of the future, boredon because I lost friends and my previous full life, weight gain, low self esteem and lack of confidence, confusion driving places, especially with directions, depression, memory loss ( have not felt joy or well being in 5 years). I was taking xanax for sleep and anxiety 5 years ago and had a breakdown while on xanax ( which I think the xanax helped produce)_ and then went cold turkey off xanax and started hearing voices and had extreme anxiety and insomnia for months. My system is very sensitive and I had not idea xanax could do all that. I am wondering what was benzo produced and what was me?
Any thoughts on the emotional or mental part of the benzo withdrawal? Some days I take a drink of hard liquor because I can't stand it any loner.
