Thanks for more responses, everyone. What are benzos? I missed something there. I've been drug free for one week now. I've been on the edge of having an anxiety attack three or four times, but forced myself not to go over the edge. I feel like I'm not sleeping at all, even though I know I must be sleeping at least a few hours a night. Does anybody have a comment on whether the withdrawal effects will get any worse after one full week, or will they just stay the same now and then taper off? I'm supposed to see the psychiatrist this coming Tuesday, and I feel like he is going to try to persuade me to go back on some drug "just in case". I feel anxiety that the withdrawal may get worse than it has been this week. Any thoughts/help on this?
