31 months off zopiclone still fighting
« on: September 01, 2021, 10:09:42 am »
Just thought I would have improved more by now. Am grateful the awful depression and total hopelessness has mainly gone, but still get days like that. But the anxiety never seems to improve feel like I am in Groundhog Day constantly. Just really feel the fact I was made to CT had contributed to the fact I'm still in this limbo, plus a really toxic family adding to the stress, I was actually happy on zopiclone never had side effects, no anxiety or kindling ,so frustrated that still got symptoms this long off, and yet to have a window. I know it takes a long time and nothing really makes a difference only time ,just tired of playing the waiting game☹️

If I'm still not making much progress by 3 years might have to think trying something else. Constantly 1 step forward 2 steps back.

Hi [...], I know it must be so hard to not have the progress you so desire. You did a CT and that had to be really hard, I could never have done that, and survived, I think you are very strong to have dealt with what you have. I do not have anything that will make it better, but time and healing is different for everyone. Also I know you have been through some incredibly stressful things with your Family. I have read many posts here of buddies that took a long time to heal, and one day it just got better, do not give up or lose Hope, keep distracted as you can. 💖 Peace and Healing.💦

Yes thought I'd have closure when my Mum died, but she managed screw me up even when she'd gone. Just get so tired trying fight the symptoms. Ct wasn't my choice, don't think I'm strong, just case you don't have any other option . I really don't want take anything else, such catch 22 , whether anything else eventually going be another horrible withdrawal. Just want a B window pleeease!!!

Don't sell yourself short, many could not do CT, you are stronger than you think. Even when things are rough, the words we say about ourselves can be self defeating. You are both strong and kind, I have read your posts to others. I wish you wellness and windows soon.💖 Peace and Healing.💦

Thank you that is so kind. Feeling very unloved by family at the moment, you have restored my faith in human nature. I didn't have a choice about going CT , new GP just stopped the meds. I do think that's why the symptoms lasted so long. Think lot others had tougher time than me actually stopping x

Nothing I can say will help except keep going. Keep moving forward.

I think that when we taper or CT we lose ourselves and who we are, but please remember the goodness...it is still there, even with family problems and a windowless post CT, you are still the woman beneath the pain and disappointments,we just get overwhelmed. Use the strength you have to keep going forward. I believe that one day hopefully soon, things will get better...but you must believe and never give up that your day of healing will come. 💖 Peace and Healing.💦

I'm trying to thank you. I'm lucky all the support on here, and got some really good friends. Just all the family stuff making it really hard not to feel the world's against you.Really hard when you've only got 1 child and get no support just criticism Too late now to have any more at my age!!! I did  manage to get to my pilates class started after 18 months lockdown so bit progress!
