Hi [...],
I just stumbled upon your comment and you sound a lot like me. I'm 8 months off of Klonopin and I still have a lot of issues. I'm not sure if it's still the med or if it's just me underneath all the chemicals. Are you still having symptoms a year later?

My biggest problems are anxiety and fear (fear of social situations, fear of losing loved ones). I have obsessive thoughts, doubting myself and my actions, analyzing everything under the sun. I never had those before I started coming off of benzos. I'm also having trouble sleeping. I'm pretty drained. I thought I'd be better by now and I'm discouraged that I'm not.

How are you doing?

Wow, [...], most of the symptoms you listed are the ones I had during my K years and are the reason I went off! How bizarre.

[...], have you tried cognitive behavior therapy?  It's highly recommended for benzo w/d as well as something to use in place of benzos altogether.  If you can find a therapist that knows it, I'm sure you will benefit from it.

Take care,

ginger
