Today's My Birthday and I planned to jump but I'm holding off


[ny...]

Recommended Posts

I started my taper back in June and had planned on 2 months.  But listening to my body and all the great support here I slowed down.  I have been very fortunate with Tinnitus as the only constant symptom.  I targeted today to jump and I'm on .11 Clonazepam, but I'm going to taper another couple of weeks down to .06.    My symptoms have gotten better on the lower doses.  I didn't make plans cause I didn't know how I would feel.  I wouldn't want all that pressure if it were a crappy day.  I'll probably meet up with friends if I feel good but this drug robs us of so much....

Hope you had a  :happybday:.....with many, many more to come! Good decision on the taper. I think you'll be happier and successful just taking it slow.  ~CeCe

Happy birthday to you!!

 

Fair enough with your taper - you have to feel comfortable and it has to be your plan. Sounds like you're doing awesome and that's the whole idea of taper - to try to avoid acute symptoms.

Hope you had a fantastic birthday. Lots of cake. Yum. Hope you behaved yourself too. Well not really. That's no fun. Happy birthday hugs. B

 

Thanks Barb!  Tinnitus is singing Happy Birthday to me all day!

:happybday:Have a wonderful day, and I think you are wise to not rush, especially since you are feeling fairly well, it is  better not to {{{{Jump}}}} but to gently [glow=red,2,300]"WALK OFF." :smitten::thumbsup:[/glow]

Mine never sings anything quite so nice.... although it spares me from Justin Beiber or Wham.

 

Happy Bday

Happy birthday Libra girl! I bet you debated that one to death. Good for you, taking care of yourself. Now you'll have 2 birthdays to celebrate. My AA birthday is exactly 2 weeks prior to my natal birthday. It's kind of a long personal happy time each year.  :thumbsup: HM

i would try to taper lower, i had a failed taper in the past, jumping from 0.07 sent me into hell

should have held longer, and prob went all the way till 0.0.1
