I think you did the right thing coming off that high dose of Ativan, it clearly wasn't helping and was causing so many side effects. I'm not surprised you have a headache and rubbery legs, you're probably going through a mini benzo withdrawal. My blood pressure was around 190/110 when I quit Klonopin cold turkey so that might explain why you're blood pressure's high right now.
I agree with bulldog about trying Lyrica, I think I've been suggesting it to you for some time since it can help with both anxiety and depression without the sorts of problems benzos often cause.
Don't expect too much of yourself, or beat yourself up for not being able to do things you think you should be doing while going through this. The med changes you've been through over the last month would make the hardiest of people unstable.
