When we get hit with an increase in symptoms, or they return after being gone for awhile, it’s easy to think that we are not healing. We worry that we will be in benzo withdrawal forever. Have no fear! Waves don’t mean that you have stopped healing. They are just part of the healing process. Recovery from benzo withdrawal isn’t linear. It’s up and down and sideways! Always unpredictable. But you are healing, even during the waves. Ride out your wave. Eventually, it will wash you back onto shore, and you’ll get your footing once again.
