I've been off Xanax for several years, yet I still crave it. Today is one of those days.
People are so cold-hearted.
Having a hard time with life today… Reading positive information like this from Recovery-Road.org:
In the case of benzodiazepines, the nervous system is in a temporary state of being excessively excitable and overly sensitive to stimuli. Unless there are pre-existing or concurrent medical conditions, this will be the only reason for your symptoms. When the recovery process is complete, the symptoms will subside, you will exhale, celebrate and then enjoy doing everything you couldn’t while you waited for the bumpy ride to end.
The most important thing to keep in mind is that as unpleasant and unsettling as it can be for many, withdrawal does not last indefinitely. Thousands before you have survived this and are now enjoying fully functional lives once more. This too, shall pass.
