Kitty, I hope your being careful cause just last night when I went to one of my classes, they where talking about
how withdrawaling off of some drugs can be deadly, and the only 2 that can be deadly are alchol and benzos, cause they can cause seizures (I beleive barbituates too). But it seems like you've gotten through the worse, cause the dangerous part is the first 48 hours, after that you should be fine. So anyone here who takes benzos (xanax, valium, klonopin, etc) should be tapered and not coldturky. The reason why I'm learning all this, is because someday when I have my nursing license, I hope to work with people in a inpatient rehab for drugs, dont ask me why, I just find it interesting. But I guess it's because I've seen friends who are doctors, teachers, people who you dont think have addictions have their lives ruined. But just remember I'm not calling you an addict, cause I know most if not all of us are not, but I thought you'd like to know that bit of information. But I understand you dont have insurance, but you really should of gone to a free or low income clinic, where I live we have 2 that gives you 90% off of your bill if you dont work, actually my mother works full time and they charge her $15 for an appointment. Just remember that benzos are not something to play around with, it's a matter of life or death.
