      • No worries Beckie. I am behind on my reading too (as always). I have been busy packing, moving and getting and working at new jobs and getting my youngest ready to move into the dorms at the University of MN. Yikes. Exciting but also bittersweet. Maybe in September both of us can start some smooth sailing. I really want to catch up and visit with you regarding your Klonopin withdrawal. I hope and pray it is going well for you. It is hell to say the least, but I feel so much better after surviving the withdrawal period. I promise you… it will be so worth it. Keep keeping on. You can do it. Love you dear lady. Much love and hugs , Sue

      • Isn’t amazing how great it feels after getting off Klonopin? This is why I try to tell people. Some people don’t like to hear it but it is sooooo…. true. The more I read and research the more I find out how dangerous this drug is. It is scary. I am so happy you are doing better and are off Klonopin too. Hurray. Hugs, Sue

      • It is a big change and you knew it wasn’t going to be easy. That makes it a difficult decision. I think you did great. It must have been perfect timing. It worked and you are doing better. Hurray. I am happy for you. I hope things keep getting better and easier for you. You deserve good things. Hug, Sue
