Thank you!

The second week since finishing the taper is here.  I noticed several (small) symptoms which must have to with that. More muscle tightness,  floaters in my eyes are being less of an issue,  or maybe I 'm getting used to them...A little more tired at times. But overall not too bad. Sleep is OK.

I wish you all a pleasant day and a successful taper and recovery! It's a wonderful feeling, knowing we can always come to BB for support and understanding!


Stay strong !

Thank you!

 I feel especially free in the evening,  not having to prepare my dose for the night any longer.  After 2,5 years of breaking, weighing and filing is was so fed up with that.
It feels a bit unreal at times knowing I 'm on the other side of my taper.

This is the 2nd week off, not going too bad so far.

Stay strong!

congrats Torchester!!

well deserved!!

I hope to be where you are in a year or less (I can sure hope).

What was your microtaper rate?
I was thinking of buying a good scale (to 0.0001 mg) and doing it that way.

Enjoy the freedom!

Cheers,

Hi [...],

Thanks for your post!

You'll get there too! Don't doubt that! Look at me: I never thought I'd make it and yet I did! So will you!

I weighed the tablet on $ 30 scales. ( 0,001 mg). Just reducing the weight  by 0,001 mg every evening. It was at a snail's pace, but as they say, the snail and the hare have Christmas at the same day...Easy does it.

Best of luck to you!

Thank you [...],

Today the 3rd week being off of Benzo started. I felt great yesterday and today too, so far. I have  to say I haven't felt this good in a very long time! Didn't know this was still possible.  Walking went without any pain. Normal for most but not for me.  So perhaps the Polyneuropathy was caused by Diazepam after all. Dr. Ashton writes about this in her manuel.

Hope you're doing OK.  X
