Benzo withdrawal can be pretty brutal.  I suspect that a majority of people here felt that they were the worst 1% of cases at some point.

What's your plan for moving forward?  How can we help?

Your body know how to heal.  It's done so countless times during your life.  Give it a chance and it can do it again.

Let's start with just two questions...

 - Where are you now?  (dose, symptoms)
 - Where would you like to be two years from now?

You will.
When you feel better and donít have the symptoms any more you will e so pleased it will be much easier.
Also many ppl simply seem to forget the worst of it once they feel better or, at least they are no longer emotionally connected to the trauma of it.
If that doesnít happen for you then you can have some trauma counselling to help you cope like with any trauma.
Try to just get through each day atm and not worry about how you will cope on the future. You will find a way.

I've had really bad mental symptoms, think you will find there are quite a few of us. Started mildly with zopiclone withdrawal, then went off the scale when I tried anti depressants. Some days can just about cope but others like today feel I'll never improve. Doing exposure therapy but don't seem make much progress so far. Think mental symptoms are particularly hard to deal with but you aren't alone.

This article doesn't deal specifically with benzo's but it gives some great tips in learning how to combat it, of course, benzo morning anxiety is way worse than the normal stuff but maybe this can hopefully help you combat it.
