> What saintjames said about the valium is true; however it is not the only long acting benzo out there. Klonopin is a similar drug; you might ask if you could try that instead of valium. Also, are you taking any antidepressants? Often they are a good long term solution although you would want to continue a benzo with it for a while.

No, I'm not taking any antidepressant. I take the lorazepam to level off from the pseudoephedrine in my alergy tablets. I can't seem to get off of those either--when I stop, my eyes get all swollen and I have no energy and I EAT all day. I'm admitting that I have an addiction to more than one substance. I just can't figure out how to stop on my own. My doctor is of no support, and I cannot leave home for appts. out of town. Can't afford professional fees at this time. Kinda stuck in a never-ending cycle of up/down with some serious depressive states mixed in every week or so.

One day, maybe I can have therapy sessions via my computer in my little office ;-) Guess I would still need to figure out some method for paying the patient soul who would be my therapist!

Thanks for your post,
Sadie, aka cait
