Hey I just want to chime in and say that you are doing good! As far as your attitude goes anyway! I know the sleep thing SUCKs! I had it hardcore. Everything you are talking about is unfortunately completely normal in benzo wd world :(
Like classic. Sometimes the sleep thing takes....months. I know it's hard to hear when you have already done 2 months of it, But honestly it really does come back. I was the zero nights girl too, only I never even fell asleep. Plus the fact that you can be physically comfortable is also promising! (My physical pain also kept me awake on top of the panic, jolts, and overall neurological symptoms I had)
Also, you saying you had some better days mixed in is a very good sign as well. You will probably start having more of those, especially on days that you get a little more sleep.
Unfortunately, it just takes time. But I am confident you will get there!

Thanks [...] bell..I appreciate the encouragement but I may be nearing the end of my rope. I'm just getting way too many nights of zero perceived sleep and I feel like I may have to go to the psych ward soon. I may have had other mental issues prior to the benzos that could have flared up so not sure if its wise to keep pushing and not sleeping..

Given what you stated here I can't weigh in with a suggestion, this is something you should discuss with your family or your doctor.

If it were me, I would discuss non addictive options with my doc.
Things like antihistamines and such. There are many things out there, doesn't have to be benzos or z drugs.

And yes, will support you here as always :)

thanks [...], I appreciate the kind words. 
I tried some hydroxzine last night and just amped me up more. not sure where this is going next but I may have no other option as I feel as the lack of sleep is causing me to lose the ability to function daily.
