I am so amped up today

My brain is rattling and I’ve been crying all day. Can this be anticipatory anxiety because I am on day 14 and plan to drop again tomorrow? I am dropping by 3.5% on day 15. I am still “functioning” but not nearly like I was before this whole mess started. Why does this have to be so freaking hard?

Hugs. It actually doesn't matter what causes it, because it still sucks regardless. But you're going to get through this. And you're going to be so much better after benzo's than before. Just keep going day by day.

You could pause the drop in dose for a week or two more to see if you get a little better. Its only a suggestion. Regardless what you do, i wish you well in your journey. All the best.

I'm with @[Le...] on the possibility of you holding another week.  It's what I am doing right now as I had more sxs this last cut/taper.  This is what they meant in help threads I've been in when they say we can listen to our bodies and change our plan of taper as we go.  I never did make a hard and fast rule for myself to taper because I heard that we could sort of adjust our plan as we go. 

I do keep track each day of my dose, but just on a little note-pad, but my length Hold-days changes ;)  It is working great and I'm 5 months into my taper.  Some tapers 14, 16, or more days, if need be.  Also, if I feel great at less (meaning stable or able to go about my day w/o any sxs that might hold me back)

This is all finally working for me to get off the benzo as I had done a CT, as well as a taper with an MD who cut me too fast, won't go into all the major wd sxs I had back then, thank God for BB!  Denise
