Hi [...],  I just found you and your words and success with Benzo tapering are an inspiration to me.  Thank you, it is very helpful to hear of someone who has made it through.  I have a feeling it might take longer for me to withdraw from 6mg. of Ativan.  Trying to be patient, surrender, keep going, accept the slow process.  Thanks for encouraging me and others who are in the middle of this.   In gratitude.  [...]

Beautiful post and success story , thank you so much for  coming back to post with your wonderful style of writing.. so inspiring . I think we need to feel that we are receiving wisdom on this journey in order to feel that it has some purpose and is not just a waste of our lives. Hard at times to put it mildly!  I  look forward to the day when I can look back on this time and reflect on the gifts it brought .

THank you again ,

[...], Yes, the pace for healing is sooo much slower than we’d like. And I think you’re wise to take as long with your taper as you feel you need to. If I had known as much as I know now, I would’ve tapered more slowly too. Keep faith in yourself, you’re on the right path! :smitten:

[...], I see you’ve been thru the medication-switching-mill too - sooo hard! But it looks like you’ve found a method that will see you through. I didn’t even know about LMT when I tapered, but I know many buddies who have used it successfully. You’ve got this! :smitten:

[...], I see you’re quite new here, and I admire your skills with English! 14 months free from Ativan is still early on. In your most recent posts you mention a big problem with acid reflux - in my experience that is best treated with a few months of a very clean diet - simple, fresh, whole foods. You need to give your gut a chance to restore itself - it’s been through a trauma! Also, my Dr. recommended a natural soother called GI Encap - it’s a combination of diglycerated licorice, marshmallow extract, slippery elm and aloe vera gel. Keep asking questions, lots of knowledgable people here to help! :smitten:

Hi [...], No, I did not cold turkey any of my medications.  But I've known a few buddies who did and made it through! Hang in there and hold on to whatever gives you hope - it's a powerful healer. :smitten:
