You have been through so much more than I have, yet, I feel like I can't beat this. Now that I have read your story, it gives me hope to save and live the remainder of my years without these symptoms.
OH MY GOD. I'm so sorry that was done to you.
Thank you for putting this together for us.
My PCP prescribed me Xanax for years for anxiety. Doctor retired and new PCP wanted me off the medication. Recommended I find a Psychatrist to help me. That did not work well.
I’m going through that right now! I think she’s going to cut me off Xanax. Ugh. So so scared.
I have had benzo on off years for restless legs. Looking back I could stop no probs except no sleep. Looking back I stayed off but had a lot of unexplained burning pain .must have been CNS thankyou

Thank you Roz for keeping your blog going I often come here and read it when I feel like I can't go on. I am sorry that you suffered so long as Ive been going through it for years to Love Andrea xxx
At any stage, when your medications were changed, did you question if everything you were experiencing was withdrawal or side effects of new med? I'm in hell but don't know if it's wd or side effects
Thank you for creating this for me to find. I'm sorry you endured such a wild ride with these medications but I'm so proud of you for your journey through and beyond. I need this info! Thank you

I'll sorry I don't give tapering help. You can get some support for this on the Facebook group Beating Benzos.
Hi SImilat story to mine. Disgraceful. I agree with every word u have written, you don't strike me as having a personality disorder, hysterical or otherwise, btw.
No more than 4 Weeks. Not 40 Years.
I thought my 20 Years was too much.
The Hell of All Diseases.
I've been medicated since 19 years old by mom and her psychiatrists. She passes, I'm 57 and altho I've weaned myself off of tons of meds and only take zoloft and ativan, want to be off ativan too.
I was just wondering, I read some of your post and yes you really had a hard life , yes back then no internet, glad you have your life back in order
Wow what recreational drugs did you use if any ?
Never ever in my life. I never even thought about it!
You just described my life! 35 yrs of being poly drugged with everything. Drug free today tho!
Well done Sandra. It's amazing to be free of these dangerous drugs. 👍💕
