[Ru...]

Recommended Posts

i am just wondering if any one ever feel just mildly out of it most of the time while tapering. I just almost never feel quite connected to reality or with it or sharp i know this is dp an dr  but just dont know why i nhave had it so long. I also always feel confused and never totally right in my own skin and i am just getting concerned as to how long this has gone on. I zalso never feel right emotioonallly and seems the  longeer i hold the worse i get. Do i just keepp slowly cutting. Will these feelings ever go away?

Hi Ruby,

My experience with Ativan (can't speak for the other benzos) is that it really affects our senses. I just recently got my sense of smell back now that I've lowered my dose significantly - it has taken well over a year before I could smell anything. My auditory nerves have been greatly affected. The thing I notice about my vision is that I often get floaters. Although while in protracted w/d from tapering too fast, I had some experiences of blurriness for brief periods of time.

Today I went for walk in the morning. It was the first walk I've taken since about Day 35, when I quit because I was having such problems with d/r and anxiety that a walk just made me feel worse. I was surprised at how things have changed in about two weeks. I'm on Day 48 of a c/t now and I am still having some d/r, d/p and anxiety, but not at the level I was two weeks ago.

 

Things got bad for me at about 16 days out, which when I guess a large amount of Valium had left my system. From then and lasting about 30 days, it was just horrible. Then, right at about Day 46, I started to feel just slightly better. Not enough to be even close to fully functional, but I felt that something WAS going on in regards to healing.

 

I hear from some people that the second month was the worst of it for them, and I'd have to agree. As I near the two-months-done mark (November 7th), I do feel some improvement since the one-month mark.

 

This all takes time. Time, time, time. And strength to keep on at it. I refuse to go back to a life controlled by pills, so whether I am functioning well at, say, four months or at six months, or even nine months, I'm committed to doing what I do to put the benzo chapter of my life behind me!

 

Hang in there!
