What’s the craziest thing that ever happened to you?

i was withdrawing off Xanax and I had no idea what I was in for. I began feeling off. Like my mind was foggy. I was having a hard time forming sentences. I began getting crazy insomnia which made me even slower mentally.

So then when I was able to sleep I had the weirdest dreams. They were SO realistic. I couldn’t distinguish them from reality. They were absolutely psychotic. They were always really disturbing and scary and violent. I would wake up in panics

And then the descent into complete madness. I was hearing voices. I was seeing people looking in my house. My paranoia was insane. I thought some weed would help calm me down. It took me to a different level. I was in full blown psychosis. I was literally seeing people in my room. Having conversations with people that weren’t there.

It lasted about 10 hours. I snapped out of it and the entire experience scared the shit out of me. I never had any mental problems like schizophrenia or being manic. It was the worst week of my life. It was the craziest and worst withdrawals I’ve ever gone through.

TLDR: Xanax withdrawals are scary and will make you go into psychosis
