My one year point will be tomorrow! I feel much better, my body is healing. After tapering for two years, I went into psychosis at 5mg valium. I was taken by ambulance to a psych ER, and kept on a regular hospital floor for 4 days observation, no benzos, so this was like a Dr detox. I was discharged and then went to outpatient rehab for 3 months. At one year, I still have some highs and lows mentally and physically with some rebound anxiety, but I would say I am 80% recovered. It is tolerable. I never would have believed last year that I would be feeling this normal. I wish to celebrate today and tomorrow!
