This is the success story I wrote on Benzo Buddies a few days ago. Some will be a repeat of my blogs here for those that follow these. For the moment all seems good but I'm ever aware things could change again. I haven't had a bad wave now for about five weeks so I feel it's time for me to be positive and believe my healing has happened even if I'm still a little tentative in what I want to declare as yet. My nights are not perfect, however there's is a big change. Today I'm 47 months off benzos.
To recap.....I was on benzos for over 40 years from my mid twenties to my mid sixties. I also had many different benzos and different antidepressants thrown into the mix over these years. Not one doctor ever diagnosed my escalating anxiety symptoms as being due to the drugs. I blithely continued to take them trusting the medical profession and believing I was suffering menopausal symptoms; I was first prescribed sleeping tablets following a life saving hysterectomy after childbirth and subsequent very early menopause.
