This is so encouraging - congratulations on your recovery and the words of [...]!  As another "mature" member of the forum, it's hard to know how much of the brain fog is benzo related, declining estrogen, depression, dementia or a combination of them all.  [...] is what propels us all - thanks for helping provide us with something we all can use.

As another "mature" member, I [...] so glad to hear your update.  I had similar duration and failed attempts at getting off, and I read and reread your first success story so many times while I was in the dark 0-5 months off, and it gave me so much [...], and now your update is doing that again.  Thank you, and I'm so [...] for you.

Thanks everyone!  I think being older is actually an advantage in this---we've already been through a wide variety of difficulties in life of which this is just one more -- albeit a very strange, lengthy and difficult one.

So [...] for you to be finally doing so well!  You have given me a bit of light!  One horrid thing that benzos did to me was to steal my creativity.  My creativity had always been a [...] coping mechanism for me.  I can now only force myself to do a project and it is pure torture and I [...] never [...] with the results and gain only frustration in the end.  My creativity has become counterproductive.  I hesitate to start anything these days as an unfinished project hangs over me with tremendous pressure.  I cannot even get to the simple things like washing the car, which sits moldering under algae and pollen with only 34,000 miles on it.  I can only wait this out with [...] I can someday post a success story like this.

Thanks for this post [...], I needed to hear about a success at 18 months. I was getting super discouraged when I did not get a lot better after the one year mark! Your story is very encouraging and does give [...]! We all need something to cling to here, even if it is celebrating others' successes.

Congrats and keep telling these positive stories everyone!  ;) :D ;D
