[...],  Sense of urgency, YES!  I even started a topic about that a while back.  I think it's the mental "akathisia".  Don't you hate that we now know all these terms?  We are so benzo-literate.

Something MUST be up with the universe!  I even have a friend who is very sensitive to energy, and she has been feeling the same thing.  An itchy dread.  There is something going on.  How common is it for everyone to be going through the exact same thing at the exact same time, even when we are all at different stages of recovery? 

Hang in there, we have to.  We just have to.  We've got to do this for each other.

Ah yes, we get to know all the wonderful terminology and half of the things we speak sounds so foreign to others  :laugh: But it must be part of the akathisia. It is a sense of urgency like never before. Even in my life before benzos panic attacks the urgency was never quite on that level. It has made me think of going to hospitals multiple times a day. But the logic says there isnít anything there for me. In windows I am able to reason a lot better even with intense symptoms that this is a healing process and that it will pass.

Maybe thereís some big energies around stirring up stuff to the surface to heal and make us lighter. I sure hope so. I am very much looking forward to the improved baseline after such an intense wave. Keep going, we are never alone and this too shall pass ❤️

I think early on I had a very strong sense of urgency to fix myself, to make myself all better, but as the months have dragged on, I actually feel more relaxed about the whole recovery process.....why, because I know that there is no magic bullet that will fix me or make me better!  I am so aware now of the non-linear recovery pattern, that I am reassured that my recovery is happening with no help from me, except for eating well and staying away from alcohol .

Hugs,

Thank you for sharing! I have had that feeling in my more manageable days where I feel like it is easier to reason with myself even if the symptoms are intense that this too shall pass and it is part of the too process. But when it gets this intense, I feel like the urgency comes back and there just isnít any way to reason with it. I thing [...] was right that it is part of the mental akathisia and is a symptom in itself.

Hugs, hope and healing to you! ❤️

[...], That is EXACTLY how I feel!  I just texted a friend saying - "you know that feeling when you are having a panic attack and you have that urgent feeling like you have to get to the ER - I have that ALL THE TIME."  At least "normal" panic attacks subside.  This doesn't.  Also I can usually talk to myself too and keep this manageable, EXCEPT when I am in this state.  It's like I cannot access the better parts of my mind.  It completely overtakes me.  That's when we have to tell ourselves that it is all chemical.  Isn't it unlike anything you have ever felt before???

You are right [...], it's all chemical. I've been dealing with the same symptoms as you. We need to keep hard at it. What else can we do? We can't give up!

I have this every single day for 90 percent of it, and night.
