Bumping this for those who, like me, really wrestle with fear:


Once your brain becomes clearer and the numerous familiar symptoms start to subside, so does the fear. It's almost as if we are born again and life, with all it's beauty, returns. Fresh air smells good. Watching the waves break onto the beach is exciting. Hearing the everyday sounds of life seems new and unfamiliar. Children playing at the park seems like a vision from yesteryear. Was I really a playful kid like them at one time? It's like seeing the world for the first time. Fear turns to hope and thankfulness when we get a second chance. We awaken from the benzo coma and want to do so many things we missed out on...

Everyone's journey is different and each recovers on a different timetable. But, from everyone I speak with or email, everyone gets better. You will, too. I never believed I'd be normal again...not for one second. But, I was wrong.

...May you all glean hope from him and those who walked thru this valley of death to the other side. You will be forever changed. Your eyes have been opened to a world many will never see. Use your suffering to help others. Know there is a divine purpose in brokenness. Crying comes for a while, but the day will come when your tears will be wiped away. No more shame. No more pain. No more fear. Just peace in your body. Praise God that you all were determined enough and smart enough to figure it out. Many never do and stay stuck in the hamster wheel. You are remarkably brave. You have a very unique testimony and your humility blesses me. God bless. Stay committed.

Hugs and healing to you all.
Love to all, Denise :angel:

Wishing peace for all of us.

Congratulations on your success! I just came from a trip to visit the National Shrine of John Paul II in Washington D.C. and it was so heart touching for me. As soon as I entered it, I was overwhelmed with an intense emotion of peace, love, and peace that brought me to tears to hear him say: Don't Be Afraid! Fear is also an intense emotion, and it can serve us well in moments of great danger when we need to run for our lives for example. However, the fear that we self-generate and is not real, we should try to avoid it at all costs. This is where Faith, Hope, and Love should override any fears that we may experience in life. Going through a brutal withdrawal can be one the scariest experiences we can experience; and yes, it is real. In my case I had to learn how to deal with it because one cannot block it just like that. What has helped me are positive affirmations that we just need to trust completely in God not matter the outcome. Meditation and yoga help be present in the moment and liberate negative energy and thoughts. Praying brings my anxiety to complete peace and acceptance. I am glad to say that after nine months I am almost healed. I am sorry, I don't mean to write my success story on top of yours. My message to all is: Don't be afraid! Surrender to God completely, Trust in the Lord!

Thanks for bumping this Ruby!  My worst remaining symptom is by far the impending doom, fear and agoraphobia.  I can still only drive to work, grocery store and bank.  Brain fog and my mind being filled with a thousand thoughts at one time also troubles me.  Most of my physical symptoms are mostly gone.  I pray everyday that I will wake up and be healed.

Hi [...],

How long have you been going through withdrawal? Iím at 14 and a half months and I have constant brain fog that hasnít let up at all the whole time being in withdrawal, and I have really bad depression. Have you noticed any improvement in your brain fog? Do you have issues with your memory? I can hardly remember what I ate for breakfast.
