Keep pushing forward everyone!! As hard as it may seem.... You WILL beat this and come out stronger when this is over!

Once you make it through this......any other bullshit life throws at you will seem EASY! Promise!!

What your going through is not for the faint of hearts! Your ALL warriors!!

You can do this!! You have what it takes!!

This is a great point Rock. I say it a lot myself. Mind over matter. However there is lots of negative theory going on here that says the opposite. I get flustered reading so many posts about what cant be done rather than what can be.

Listen....drowned out any negative bullshit you read online. Their withdrawl and symptoms has NOTHING to do with you or your withdrawl. You have no idea whats going on in their life or if their taking multiple drugs or what. Everyones withdrawl is very unique and personal. No two withdrawls are the same....ever.

You have to reach deep inside yourself and unleash your inner will to over come this. You have what it takes....so does everyone on here. Dont let anything steer you off course. Be strong and push toward the finish line! If i can make it though my hellish withdrawl....so can you. You HAVE to believe!

[...] - glad to see you back again!!!  Your words are always so encouraging and always ring true.  I'm 7 weeks post jump now and it just keeps getting better week to week.  I so clearly see now how important it is to keep a good attitude, even when it was hard.  Started sleeping like crazy right away and put eleven pounds back on.  The dehydration is going away...etc.  The magic is happening.  You're so right, now is not the time to read negative stuff on the internet about this.  It creates fear that creates a negative loop.

The odds of good recovery are in our favor!!!

I'm so HAPPY for you! Glad your seeing these improvements! Putting weight back on and keeping hydrated is a great sign! Your on your way! If your sleeping...your healing! Let your body do the work..  it knows how to heal itself. You just have to wait it out and let it happen. Its quite amazing when you think about it.  .how the hell can your  body and brain naturally recover from a chemical devastation? Hard to believe ...but it does. I would of NEVER believed it.... if i hadn't gone through it!!!

Make sure you surround yourself with positive people willing to help you while you heal. They will help drag you to the finish line. Its VERY important to steer clear and stay away from ANY negative people, including friends and family members. They will drag you down and flare up your symptoms. Your central nervous system is very fragile while healing. Protect it until it calms down and returns to normal...which it will.

Your going to look at life a lot different when this is over....trust me. Cant wait to read your success story!!

Wow, I don't know how I missed this thread. Thank you so much for coming back and support the others that are having a hard time now. I would like to ask you howdid your wife support you when you were really in bad shape. She must have been lost seeing you pacing a lot for example. Did you share with her your intrusive thoughts?

Also, how did you deal with your fears? Were you able to continue working?

Thanks a lot again,

Lets see....in regards to your questions. My wife supported me because she watched the whole thing go down before her eyes. She knew i was normal before Benzos. My little sister passed away suddenly so my doc put me on Valium to help me sleep and cope with her death. Real bad idea looking back at it. Wish i would of skipped that doctors appointment that day. Anyways...she saw with her own eyes what happened when i stopped taking Valium. Ended up in the ER whacked out of my mind. Total mess!! So the story goes from there.

In terms of my non stop pacing (Akethesia). It was the most BRUTAL withdrawl symptom ever! Complete torture!! It went on for a long dam time. It was like my adrenal glands were stuck wide open and wouldn't turn off. Lost a TON of weight! Couldnt sleep...Couldn't eat. Super dehydrated. Looked like death....barley hanging on. Plus i had about 100 other symptoms on top of it from my cold turkey. I just kept pacing ...pacing....and pacing. I honestly wanted to die. I just wanted for it all to be over because the pain and suffering was so immense.

In regards to sharing my intrusive thoughts? You dam right i did. I was scared of myself. I was scared to be alone. I was scared that I wasn't going to make it day by day. I had to let people know so they could help talk me through it. I let my close Friends on here know....i owe my life to them. They helped talk me through some of my darkest hours. I mean that when i say it. I truly believe i wouldn't be here today if it wasn't for this site. The duration of my suffering and withdrawl was to long. I couldn't of done it without the support of others that have gone through it. I was to fragile and weak. To be clear...i never in my life had intrusive thoughts or thoughts about killing myself before benzos or withdrawl. Ive never had them post withdrawl either. It was 100% withdrawl induced the whole time. I owe my life to God and the people on here that helped take care of me.

Everyone on here needs to know withdrawl DOES end! I use to think i was the exception. That i would never heal. That i was screwed for life. It wasnt the case. Healing is real. Your body knows how to fix itself naturally. Theres nothing else you need to do. You just have to wait it out.

Your Welcome.... I'm sure you will do the same.

All though I made it through the storm. I will NEVER forgot the pain and suffering i went through during my withdrawl..... EVER!!

That's why occasionally pop in here to give members hope and reassurance that they might not be getting from their doctors or family members.

The withdrawl symptoms people experience on here are VERY real. Its sad that many professionals in the med community try to down play them or say that their not withdrawl related. I went through that bullshit.....and i proved them ALL wrong!  And so will YOU!

Please Stay Strong! Your nightmare is temporary.....PROMISE!
