I'm one of those benzo horror stories. Mine was with lorazepam. Tolerance, dependence, terrible inter-dose withdrawal, a hellish four-month taper, doing a crossover to diazepam halfway through. After I was benzo free, I felt broken for many months. The depression, anxiety, and insomnia I suffered throughout all of the above were far worse than anything I'd experienced before, or since.
