jumped yesterday, free from k
« on: October 12, 2019, 03:39:16 am »
i officially jumped from the tiny .025mgs of k yesterday, after battling with a horrible and poorly timed flu. it's been a very stressful taper of six months and i never thought i would make it. after being prescribed ativan, going through a car accident and brain injury, then moving up to klonopin, watching my life crumble and blaming it on the brain injury while i continued benzos, losing my ability to drive, to work, even to leave my house- finally i am free from the meds that started it all.

i am dealing with some heavy and new symptoms post jump but i am fighting through the urge to go backwards. i have to give it my all. i'm just happy that now i know my efforts are leading somewhere now ;D

i will post updates here as i get through my acute- and hopefully some windows.

Congratulations [...]!  You got off Klonipin and that is a huge accomplishment. 

From what you have written, you have been through a lot.  I know you are struggling with some symptoms now but you now without the K, your body can do some more healing.

Since I'm tapering K now, I'm always glad to hear when people get off.
