While the Klonopin was addictive, at least I could function. Anyone else feel this way?

I thought that way for 2/3 years, whilst tapering and recovery.

Don’t let that benzo lie get the better of you.

At 15 months off I’m beginning to feel reborn! I’ve found a new love of pop music (at age 68!) which is driving my husband nuts.

My main thoughts were about being more useful when on the pills, I could keep work and social commitments, I could sleep and if anything extra stressy came along well, just have a pill!

But that life was not my best life, not at all.

How I’m beginning to feel now is just great, live is exciting! I feel young!

Hang in there.

It really is worth the long months of suffering. No life will become best life.

Thanks Pamster.

Not quite ready for a success story, I need to see if this window lasts but all looking good.

Please hang in there Gonzo, it was only a few weeks ago that I was pleading to go back on the pills.

Things can turn around quickly.

I didn’t believe that but it’s true.

Keep us posted.

Well benzodiazepines are considered minor tranquilizers so if anything wouldn't they KEEP you from living to your full potential?  ;D

Rebecca,

It wasn’t a case of going from dreadful to better overnight. I’ve always had windows, even if just for a couple of hours. Then I had a good day, then a couple of good days. Then a really good day!…….and so on.

I have to be realistic in that I have got older during all this so I’m not expecting to be running marathons!

This all coincided with starting eating the GABA rice everyday but I don’t know if that was just chance……..but I’ll keep eating it!

I’m still physically very unfit due to many months of lying around but I hope to improve gradually.

 

WantToSurf,

Yes, benzos DO keep you from living to your full potential!

Thats the trap. Eventually the drug stops working, or even starts causing the very peob it used to solved.

 

I have a friend who is an alchoholic.... its very similar. The alchoholic has the benefit of a much shorter withdrawl period.... but cravings that can last a lifetime.

 

Us benzo folks have the hell of a long drawn out torture withdrawl....but we get the benefit of no lifelong cravings. Once its behind us. Its done. Personally i cant wait to never talk to another pysch dr again.
