Hello, new here. Been taking anti anxiety meds and antidepressants for many years . I think that I'd feel better w/o them, especially the valium . I have had much inner healing in recent years, and at least part of me wants to get off them. It is just more of a habit. I have a psychological dependance on them.. I don't really don't need them....still, out of habit, I go running for the valium when I experience stress. .and they seem to weaken me....rarely help. Have tried tapering several times. ..but keep going back. Plan to give it another go...may need some support...or just someone to answer to. Oh, and my doctor would agree. Thanks.
