My system is super sensitized by lex taper, had severe reactions to almost everything in the universe, magnesium, all meds, supplements, msg, aspartame, I passed out for 15 minutes after a mri for my back. I was not anxious or scared I swear. It’s the strong magnets.

Even that insanely sensitive, I didn’t have reaction to xray

Whatever Happened to Matt Samet?

I am well into my 5th year and no end in sight. I don’t get windows, just alleviated symptoms for short periods of time. I “get” this is going to take a very long time. However, I follow the long term protracted users to give me guidance and I’m just not seeing it. Matt Samet’s last post in Mad in America was from 2015.

Does anyone know of he has healed? Also, Jack Hobson-Dupont has not reported a success story. Any news of him?

I’m going to assume that 6 years later Matt samet has not recovered from his setback. Very disheartening. I do hope he is okay.

Frustrated with social anxiety

Sleep and appetite are good right now which is a relief considering start of my taper. Still frustrated with social anxiety that comes and goes since I’m not usually socially anxious at all. To the point that a dinner with my wife and trip to grocery store are unsettling. 🙁
Has anybody else experienced social anxiety even in normally comfortable situations?
Know I should be grateful I’m not having worse SXs but this still is bothersome and I’d love for it to pass sooner than later!

Yes this is intense for me as well. I do actually already suffer from this but it is WAY worse during my taper. Leaving my house puts me in straight panic.

Social anxiety is my major symptom in addition to tinnitus. Like you said, even going to a restaurant can unsettle me. But I do it and I even go to rock/blues/jazz/classical concerts. The anxiety usually subsides as I drink a few beers and start to focus on the music. I had never had an issue like this before. I hope it will disappear once I’m done with my taper.

Can't do anything

Did quite a bit of housework today and then had a big panic attack. As if my body was telling me to rest. So the panic attack was prolonged and it has left me exhausted and I’ve had to come to bed. Now everything is too much. I have no energy to read a book or magazine and the noise from the tv downstairs is really bugging me.

So I’m lying here doing nothing but I have a nagging voice inside me telling me that I should be doing something or I will never get better. Is it normal to have absolutely no energy at all? Thanks.

I have no energy at all on pretty much a daily basis. If your body is telling you to rest than please rest. It can only help , not hurt. you are not being lazy. In fact resting when your body wants to is a way to help heal in my opinion.

I have so little energy that its scary. Also extreme muscle weakness. From where I was at before fitness wise this is a total nightmare and a joke at how little I can do. I guess this happens in Benzo withdrawal. For me it was bone crushing fatigue and then weakness. Its been going on about 14 weeks for me.

Try not to worry, I know its hard. This is withdrawal and it will eventually pass.

FEAR OF SHOWERING?

The first irrational fear for me was getting in the shower. It was puzzling but even though i have always showered at night i didnt that night. And since then its a struggle .some days easier than others. But its been constant.
