18 - 30 Month Plus Group
« on: September 12, 2015, 06:55:55 pm »
A group of folks started a thread back some time ago ... the "6 - 12 Month Group" ... after a while this thread stayed alive and the folks who were there at the beginning of the thread started the next thread ... the "12 - 18 Month Group" ... some of the folks in that group have healed and moved on into their lives ... some of us are still waiting for our healing to be completed ... so ... the next group in this series starts today ... the "18 - 30 Month Group" ...

All are welcome here ... and for those who have been active in the previous two groups, and for those who were silent partners ... thank you all ... we look forward to seeing you in the new group ...

Nobody gets left behind ...

Be Well ...

The previous two groups in this series are still active ... and remain open ... just wanted to let folks know why some of the members of the second group moved to the new one ...

Wow! This place is so spacious and brand new. It feels good to let go of what was and move into what is and will be. Thanks for doing the heavy lifting, [...]! It feels good to be home.

I'm going to go make sure Jenny knows the way to the new place.

Hi [...], Hi [...]

Can I sneak in here for a couple of weeks?

Yes, I'll be 30 months off at the end of this month and I have to say this is getting a bit much, it really is.

I had planned to be completely healed by now.  In fact I have planned that every 3 months for the past two years I think.

But never mind, it is always getting a little better and a little better .....  :thumbsup:

And we just never know what is round the corner.

July was definitely my best month so far, then I usually stand still for a few months until I have another bad wave, then a slightly higher baseline.  That is how it seems to go for me.

We just have to stay positive and optimistic that all will be well.

Hugs

[...] ... yes it does feel a little weird to be in a "new" place ... hopefully this thread will become everyone's swan song ...  :thumbsup:

[...], you moved quickly, my man!

TY for the PM alert. 

[...], so glad to see you!

I want to say, I was terrified of 'protracted.'  Never thought I'd still be here, but I am.  And while things are def'ly getting better, healing is happening, there are still some glitches, if you will.  There seems to be a real dearth of information after 18 months, maybe because most people start to see improvement and go away.  And the success stories skip over this stage, or cover it in a sentence, "such and such was the last to go."  But if such and such is giving you a whooping, as it is me, I'd love to know it's a normal part of healing. 

I have to think, since there are so many of us still dealing with residual stuff, after a great amount of healing, that there must be so many more out there, that we're not
alone. 

So thank you, [...], for starting this thread!  I remember how reluctant I was to give up the 6-12, for the move to 12-18, even though I started the damned thing.  So the transition might be sluggish, but I think it will pick up. 

And I'll say what I said at 6 months, everybody heals, nobody gets left behind.  Even after we oldsters leave, there will be people behind us to pick up and carry on.  The goal is to heal and move on to a healthy benzo free [...].  And we are getting there. :smitten:

[...]....thank you for getting this up and going...[...] is right.  There is a very nice psychological lift to moving the flag another 500 feet. It feels like starting a new progression phase instead of trudging along endlessly in the same mile.
....I am looking forward to seeing many of my 6-12 band of buddies declare ' healed and done'.   Many of us are close. I am also looking forward to seeing new faces here. I think this succession of '6 month' threads will be a valuable help to those coming along right behind us as they can follow day to day progress of people in the second year.
..  .Onward we go ....with renewed spirit......[...]

[...]....welcome, and thank you for the very encouraging post. It is so goid to know that things keep getting better and better a little bit at a time. Your pattern of better and ' holding' then a better baseline seems alot like my progress in the past few months...  it is so reassuring to hear the same from someone out a little further than me.  It really helps.  Thank you

[...] got better in the last thread (oh, so many meanings...) Healing [...] then Jenny. Who's next? I think that's what happens here, said the girl who can't get off the couch with dr and tinnitus.  But you know, I'm braver than I was, a little more solid, a little more me.

Welcome [...]. I love your name. Every student I've ever had with the name [...] has been sharp and full of strong will and determination. Just how I like to see a girl getting on in the world.
