My thought for the day is I put an ad on craigslist for a woman in recovery to hang out with and maybe go to some meetings. I got spammed so much with porn. Then I set up a gmail account.
They stopped spamming my other email with porn. Weird. Now I am paranoid someone has infiltrated my computer. New day new thought. The taurine has made me calm enough to think it through.
Anyways enough from me. I listen to everything.
later

Did you really put an ad on Craigslist?  Did you get some reply's.  I wish I knew someone around here that is going through this benzo withdraw, nobody understands. 
ANyhow, I have still been struggling this the going crazy thought, but I think its wearing out.

Yeah it is was in the strictly platonic area of CL. I didn't post pics or anything. I heard men do not get many replies. I got one real one. She was to much drama before I even met her. So no go ::)
 I hope you continue to get better.

You could try AA. They go through alot of stuff similar to benzo wd. Chances are there is someone at a meeting who has gone through benzo WD. Or even Narcotics Anonymous. I have known people who abuse benzos. They go to these types of meetings.
However I have gone to some meetings that were like a bar but everyone was sober. Lame.
I am done with rowdy loudmouths. It all depends on the meeting.
You could try it.
I wish I had just one friend who was going through the same thing. We could hang out and compare notes or whatever. I am not into leaving the house much lately. I will have to be soon.
 Back to work. part time now. More full time in the future.
If you are able to leave and are comfortable in groups. Go for it.

I have thought about doing that, haven't gone yet though.  I feel like going to a detox to get this over with.  I have been to some meetings years ago with friends and such but I don't know we will see.
Yeah I met some lady a few weeks ago who had quit c/t from Ambien, she was only on it for a couple months.  But she said she went through a two week break down and wasn't able to sleep for weeks, however she is doing better now.  It was Godsend that I happened to meet her that night.  I got her email and have been wanting to email her, need to. 
When do you do have to go back to work?
I'd hang with you but it looks like we are in different states, go figure  :)

Yeah definitely find a support group. It is good to have one online, but in person and phone is much better. You should email her. She must want to help if she gave you her email.
I go back this month. Your profile does not say what state you are in but mine does so...
 Yeah to bad.
This lady probably is a Godsend. Email her. She probably has some good wisdom for you.
Take care.

I live in California, I signed up for this forum so fast.  I am still trying to navigate through it and still haven't created a signature.
Thanks, you too

Brave man :laugh: hahaha :laugh: I have actually met some nice women by responding to their strictly platonic ads. They always want more. Why did you post in that section? There is no way I could start a relationship right now. CL has some weird ones for sure. I still talk to two women and text them whom I have met on there. They have become good friends to confide in. But yeah CL is definitely a crapshoot and attracts some messed up people.
Or you were just being sarcastic. Either way I had a chuckle :thumbsup:
