So, I accidentally sent my first post before I was finished. I was wondering how long my wd's might possibly last? It's like it comes & goes in waves. I still feel pretty out of it... But it's tolerable. I think I am at my worst when I am alone and ponder my situation. It's always easier for people to say you can do it, just be strong. But in all reality, unless you've been in our shoes, you've no idea what you're talking about. I was taking 16 mg a day and when I jumped last Sunday, I was taking roughly .5 mg. I'm not sure if I am making any sense, I'm kinda all over the place and I stated " it's so good to be clear headed"... I was mocking myself, I'm definitely feeling tons of emotions that are both familiar and not so familiar. Peace to you all, I hope somewhere, someone can take a piece of what I said and find comfort in it. I have a long road ahead of me! But it's definitely a road I want to travel.

Eric in Pdx.

Hi Eric and welcome....

It's hard to tell how long it'll last. Today is 65 days for me, and I can tell you I'm physically 80% there... I was on subs for 5+ years. I started on 32mg... Continued that for years. Then the lowest IMO I could get down to was 2- 1.5 mgs. How long we're you on it, and how long was your tapper? What have you been doing to nurse yourself?? LOL I know you're probably like "what is this, 21 questions?" But that way it's easier to further help you :)

Hang in there, bud. Be proud of yourself, I/ we all know its no easy task, that's for damn sure!!!!
