Hello people.
Tapering etizolam at the moment, really want to get sober.
Think I might jump off completely tonight, its just been a bit difficult due to having epilepsy and the fear of seizures.
How are you folks?

I am worried that you might have a seizure. Is there someone else with you who can help get you to a hospital if needed?

yeah there are people in my house.
I think I should be OK, I tapered down very low and I am not noticing much signs of seizure such as twitching etc.
Kind of feels like the right time to jump off completely

Not out of the woods by any stretch of the imagination, the panic attacks this morning were some of the worst I have had in my life but I think I am doing as well as I possibly can without putting myself in danger.

If you think you're too small to make a difference you haven't spent a night with a mosquito
