i hope you are hanging in there! Unfortunately it's going to be bad for a few more days...but I promise you the end result is so worth it!
You are so lucky to have a supportive husband. That will help SO much. The best thing you can do is to take the valium on a regular basis...to keep you slightly sleepy and calm. Plus, at least for me, the benzos had an effect on my memory so I don't remember my withdrawal that much. :)
I've gone through withdrawal three times...once cold turkey, with NO meds, which of course was awful. Once with benzos, which was better, and one with suboxone which was great. Hopefully no more!

Warm baths help...so does exercise, although most of the time you'll feel too yucky to get there, but if you can even take a walk, it'll help with the restless legs. immodium or lomotil on a regular basis will also be beneficial.

But no matter what, don't give up. Keep your eyes on the prize...and think that next week at this time you will be on your way to a new life. If all you can do for the next several days is lie around (or pace around!) the house, let yourself be sick. Don't feel like you have to do anything but get better. And sleep as much as possible, obviously it will help the time pass.

please keep us posted, we're all pulling for you. :)
