Survive any way you can! This is a great message from my favourite buddy :)

Always good to hear updates from you, [...]  :thumbsup:

I am doing better. A bit more sleep than before, 4 hours a night rather than 3 and able to exercise more. Have seen some friends more often and they are happy I've improved. Still the blasted hypersalivation though. Hopefully back to full strength sometime in 2019.

Tough morning (holiday) but made it thru.  If you made it thru your whole ordeal, so can I, and hopefully all of us.  One wave, one window at a time.

[...]  Thank you so much for your encouraging personal reply.  You have such good a good heart.  I'm embarrassed to admit - but know everyone understands - that I don't have the brain power to get into my own account messages.  All I see is the welcome from the wonderful moderator baddove.  She and I replied back and forth a couple of times but they don't show up when I try to get back to it : )  Oh well.  Maybe some kind soul can walk me through.  I'm an old girl and was generally road kill on the information highway before the Benzos.

Anyway, I reread your story and probably will again.  Your horrifying low points, honesty, sense of humor and current space of peace, joy and [...] are genuinely touching.

I got into this mess because I was caring for a failing 93 year old father for a year and a half.  Very stressful on many levels.  But I am usually a tough nut to crack.  And if my dad is 93, then y'all know I ain't no spring chicken.  But crack I did, mostly cuz of the insomnia from worry.  And then came the script for Benzos. 

You're so right.  It's not a sprint.  I hang tight to the moments here and there of relative improvement - like being able to take a shower and eat. The real basics.  Funny how grateful you become for the simple things.  I spend many times during the day doing a mental gratitude list.  When I get my mind headed in a good direction, and take the gratitude thing to an absurd level, every little thing I can think of, it's amazing how much there is left to be grateful for.  Fake it til you make it.

Mornings are tough, which is why I logged in.  It feels good to just type a note to another human being who understands.  The isolation and agoraphobia are tough and can make it all seem much darker.  Again, thanks [...] and all who are 'listening'.  May we all walk through another day toward health with a little [...].

I [...] all my buddies are seeing some progress and not losing [...]. Looking back on the HELL I really never thought life was possible again. It seemed life wasn't worth living, but afterwards you will be so thankful you never gave up. You will smile again, have joy, see colors, have clear thoughts, and even have moments of euphoria. To be able to sit and R-E-L-A-X is something we take for granted....but it is so nice to look at the horizon with promise.
My [...] is we all are able to get back to normal, whatever that is!

I'm [...] up on 2 years off and SO thankful!
Prayers to you all....
