Congrats!

I haven't been on in awhile because I've been doing so much better, but I logged on tonight and was thrilled to see you made it to the finish line! I can tell you honestly that it only gets better from here. Well done warrior.

Hi everybody,   

Thank you so much!

It's still feeling a bit awkward not having to prepare my dose in the evening.
I think I noticed some small withdrawal reactions the last couple of days:  a bit dizzy at times, more muscle tightness. But nothing big.
I slept well. Really happy about that!

I also stopped journaling. Don't feel the need for that anymore.

Stay safe everyone!

I came back to Congratulate you AGAIN! So INSPIRING!
That fact you are not Journaling is a good sign. I have been journaling my arse off for over 300 days!
I count everything. How many day is this taking 1 mg. of a Valium ( 51 )…
I never used to journal anything….

What an ACCOMPLISHMENT [...]!!!

Heal Away!

Thank you again, Hopefull,( love the name!)

When I was in the depths of my despair,  journaling gave me hope of a better future. At first I wrote down " everything ". It gave me something to do as well. But was advised by my psychologist to note just 3 positive things per day. When more positive things occured, I wrote more than just those 3.

Later in the taper, when months came round for a second or third time, I could compare notes and noticed improvement!

Now that the taper has finished and I feel so much better, I 'm physically able to do a lot more . There's no need for journaling anymore!

Wishing you all the best!

I am in bed and preparing myself for sleep. I am so glad I read your news, as it is the perfect antidote to my anxiety about what is ahead. You've done it, then so can I.

Thank you and congratulations,
