Keeping Hope Alive

This is just a brief update to let you know I'm still here!

I continue to have a sensitive nervous system which causes insomnia but no other symptoms now. The worst trigger for me seems to be any additional stress and I have plenty of that. I would like to add  that my setback after feeling mostly recovered is likely to be from this outside stress and not anything to do with benzos apart from the continuing sensitivity of my CNS. It's happened to others and is a phenomenon well recognised.

Please don't let this reflect on your own recovery which is very unlikely to be like mine and to be over much fasterl Never give up hope but somehow keep going and don't look backwards.

Try not to give give in to the fear that obviously surfaces when symptoms return after a long respite as this is still a healing time. ❤️
