Let me clarify that last post about Benzos. My Nuerosurgeon back in 2005 thought to put me on Xanax.
My car driving went to total hash, making rookie mistakes what might well be a neon sign to any LEO to come lasso me right quick.
I floated through life that first year. It's not... something I care to repeat. I decided enough was enough and stopped it cold turkey. It took 18 months before the body quit having trouble with that stuff. Essentially like someone holding puppet string on everything I own in my body. Only it's not mine anymore.
Neurosurgeon said that I was only one of three in her 70 year history of being a doctor to quit that stuff and stay out of it. I know enough not to take it. Now Valium is a good subsitute but only for MRI etc. and it's out in a couple hours. The next line is IV Versed. Your memory of what they are about to butcher you does not exist after.
