Melissa, you’re amazing. I am also recovering from benzo withdrawal. It’s been 23 months and I am still living in hell. No doctor on this earth understands what I’m going through. They think benzo withdrawal only last a few months and that I am making myself sick to stay home from work. I have thought of taking my life several different times. I don’t want to die, I just don’t know how I can go on feeling the way I do each day. Some days are better than others. When I have a good day I don’t want to go to bed at night for fear of what I am going to feel like the next day. No rhyme or reason for the inconsistency of unwellness. I have no social life as I never know how I am going to feel. I rush to get to bed hoping I will feel better the next day and I don’t. What a sad existence. I am a prisoner in my own body. I was on klonopin .05 each day for 5 years. I was sick 4 years of this 5 years in inter dose withdrawal, however the doctors did not have a clue why I was sick. I suffer from dizziness, any noises, being in public, derealisation, digestive issues, insomnia, clenching of teeth, nausea, plugging of ears, anxiety, etc. I don’t know how much longer I can do this.
