My Klonopin taper thread

Feel free to read or create a new topic about benzodiazepine questions or detox. (*Note - Benzodiazepines are not opiates. They are Valium, Xanax, Klonopin, Ativan, and many more. Additionally, cessation of benzos without medical supervision can be very dangerous.)

Aw thanks Cheryl, but actually I am a vegetarian believe it or not.

Fuck me, I just realized, with that characteristic burning in my eyes, that this unseasonably warm weather means a seamless segway straight from cold into allergies. Perfect timing for my immune system to get all revved up start of damn Spring. :(

Twisted,im in south louisiana, and most days this winter I have been ablt to drive my daugter to school wearing shorts!Of course,that is in car,I wouldn't have been able to stand around in my yard in the morning with shorts on,but most of the time shorts were fine in the afternoon.Since i have ben feeling bad,i thought i missed spring,lol.I told a friend that and she said we had our spring all winter,lol.She was right,i didnt think about that.Summer is here loud and clear now.Summer sucks in south La with the heat and awful humidity.You are right,kinda scary!Most of the beautiful azealas have already bloomed,they are everywhere here and still have a few left blooming but not many.I need to hurry up and get some pics of the kids in front of the lovely buses,they make good pics with the little girls.Missed them last year too!

Yeah my mom lives in Georgia, and her and her neighbor were saying the exact thing you did about the weather in the south...I live in Michigan and the winter here was like a regular Georgia winter :sick: :thumbdown: ...a little disturbing because I like minimal creepy bugs and vermin around.

So I haven't updated this in ages and ages.

I don't really have much new to report.

I'm off 4 months tomorrow.

Life is ok. Sometimes it's really tough, but not always, sometimes I feel just fine. I have a lot of lingering issues. But it's nothing incapacitating, just difficult. The worst is the fact that I sleep about 50% of the time I would like to be sleeping, and it is often unrefreshing.

I have really bad allergies again :(

I'm not sure I am going to have much to add until I feel ready to write a success story, which will probably take months, I want to be absolutely sure I am at 100%.

I don't really want to chart symptoms anymore and progress, as I am tired of it, and things can be so up and down, the progress is so convoluted, it's just impossible to keep track anymore and just when I think a symptom is gone for good it comes back a bit.

I'll be going back to full-time work not from home, and moving closer to being able to do that, within a month or two. I'm ready!

PS -- I have been going to the gym 2x/3x a week, and have probably doubled my muscle mass -- though even doubled, for me, that still leaves me a skinny hippy....

PSS - There's a ten years on Subs, cold-turkey, success story at 2+ years off to go in there too! :D

Hippie eh? :) I am glad you updated yourself, funny after the advice you were giving Subsucker, I was thinking about going on this thread to ask how you were doing after 4 months. It's pretty damn important for those like you, because you can rarely find updates on a unique journey like yours! Looking forward to your next phase, and I hope it will be better soon!

I just watched a documentary of a couple cats who crossed the entire country on a Segway.

It's called 10MPH and it was GREAT!


See ya on the open road Xeno!
