Such a well written, much needed post  :thumbsup:

Thank you for your success story, it's given me hope.  While I have not suffered as so many do, I've tried to do it the right way, slow and listen to my body.  Not giving in to that devil on my shoulder saying "just jump".

A great post  :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Such an awesome story! Thanks for sharing! Congrats on your hard work  :)

Do you mind me asking when your social anxiety went away? Was it when you fully healed? :o

Hi

I had pretty bad waves of social anxiety before I started to taper and it definitely peaked during my taper.  Improvement was more or less constant and linear from the moment I jumped and is now gone.

I remember suddenly being asked to do a speech for about 200 people at work in my second week after jumping.  I was terrified but just had to get on with it.  I couldn't believe that I coped and even started to enjoy it before the end.  That was definitely a boost to the confidence.

Four months and still going strong.

At worst I have had maybe one or two days of very mild anxiety which I would struggle to attribute to benzo withdrawal.  Maybe just my natural state!
