Howdy All, Got off of benzo's I've been on for a while (no tapering), stopped drinking alcohol from drinking at least 5 shots a day. A creature was following me last night - I heard rustling nearby and dead leaves where moving - I ran towards my home (not mine - family's) and shut the door as I heard it chasing after me - got me pretty frightened. I couldn't seem to make my skin stop itching that night either (has it only been 1 or 2 days since I posted?) - I can't remember large chunks of yesterday, and what I do remember is more scattered - I feel like I'm high but I haven't taken anything - feel awful, like I must have a drink right now (a physical response), but I don't have any alcohol around - if I get alcohol my family will kick me out on the street. I don't know what to do - I'm frightened this won't stop or that I'll get permanent brain damage from a seizure or something. Hope I survive yet again - the movie tonight helped ease my tension a bit.
