Hi lalala,

it’s been 5 months and 1 week since it all started, it will be ok, time will have to pass first, just take it day by day, it feels like forever but someday it will all end.lots of hugs.

update  I think, feel the vertigo diminish a lot,  I'm still weak with dp and vision is off as well as balance,

my eyes burn when I'm to much in the computer  and they get watery  why is this  , is it dry eye from wd?

still have passing out feeling  weak muscles... I feel like i'm dying from exhaustion and weakness, I try to distract

any encouragement for those doing it by themselves ?

Hi Lalala, 

 

Good to hear that your vertigo is subsiding a bit. Yes, dry eyes can be a symptom of withdrawals.

 

Sending hugs🤗

I was wondering, I still deal with baseline sxs, and thinking of reducing  the  AD... I'm not in a good place, I may have to move homes again and its causing  a lot of stress this would be in oct. but  I'm not sure its doable do to my energy levels... 

I also have to focus on work in the afternoon ... if I can't work  a lot I will have to move either way everything is always  unpredictable 

I can never get a break  I always  fighting to get by ...  cycle time so not the best time

 

anyway would like to get some thoughts , advice 

on the reduction of the AD...

thxs x

the only reduction I had done was of klonopin , then in may I reduced from 5mg to 4.5mg  celexa I think after 2 weeks I reinstated, its inthe posts with songbird

sxs: low sugar drops, balance issues, tiredness, poor  broken sleep, vision issues, feeling off, low concentration, anxiety from stress, headaches, dry/burning eyes...

weird muscle twitches, upper muscle tightness, dizzy when I turn around, inability to nap.... stressed more easily,  weakness exhaustion

Please update your signature. You are more likely to get responses if moderators can easily see your latest reductions and not have to read through your thread. 

 

Account - Settings - Create or Update Your Signature

 

How long have you been holding at .28 Klonopin?

 

If you feel you are stable enough to handle a reduction, you may want to test the waters with a very small reduction of 3% or less from the AD and see how you do. But it would be helpful to know when your last benzo reduction was.

Two weeks is not a long time. I would hold a bit longer. You may want to see if you can build a stronger baseline.

This sounds like an improvement since you were active over on the benzo forum. If you hold a bit longer, you may build on this and set yourself up for an easier AD reduction.

ah thank you!xx  wish it was always but my emotions plays a big part and i'm very sensitive  more so now, last to night have been 3-4hrs but its also stress , it really wrecks me... i don't know how I will manage with this job I found. I do coping skills but it doesn't always work .. I think activity will be good, god willing.. I will hold, that day was from exhaustion I did a one day job it was physical and I dropped in the  weekend
