Brainwashed kook fears dentist visit will only make chipped tooth worse

Chipped small piece of front tooth...getting so upset and sad about it
« on: September 14, 2021, 05:19:27 am »


Hello Buddies,

I would like to hear stories and reassurance that there is no big deal and no reason to see a dentist ( cause I lost any faith in medical community ) and their intervention will make more harm than good and impose additional stress and anxiety on me with their BS fear just to make additional profit and cause more damage than there is.

Sorry if it seems lame my post but by some reason it puts so much saddness in my life – I guess aftermath of this horror experience, midlife crisis and just being robbed so much from these evil substances…

Kindly V

Benzo Buddies cultists discover new food to be terrified of: salmon

Salmon and Waves?
« on: September 14, 2021, 05:26:54 pm »


I’m having a weirdly rough day. The strange thing about my symptoms is that my vision is super blurry today despite not being like this since the spring and also after sleeping good last night.

I had salmon for dinner last night and am wondering if it’s causing a small wave. It was fresh salmon that was actually caught in Alaska recently. I have read that salmon can cause waves. Is there any truth to that? And if so why?

Yes, it had been true for me. I don’t think it’s just salmon, but more likely fatty cold-water fish in general. Fish is high in histamine, that could be one reason. Another possible reason is that fish oil is stimulating to the brain. I have not been able to take fish oils when my symptoms are bad.

Must be the fish oil because I tried taking fish oil at about a year off and it was given to me by a functional doctor and I want from sleeping about four hours a night to 0 hours a night just the two days that I took it. But that was when I was about 13 months off. I’m now 42 months off.


This is why healed people leave (drama)
« on: August 31, 2021, 05:19:05 pm »


I was in a Facebook group trying to share my story and provide hope to people
And there was a post of tons of people (20+) badmouthing a member who wasn’t even there to defend herself
Calling her all sorts of names, for whatever reason
I stepped in – told everyone that bullying is not ok and what they were doing was 100x worse than what ever it was that she did.
And I got told to leave. Lol.
I said “I’m healed, you sure you want me to leave?”
And the response I got was “maybe you should go back on the meds if you don’t agree with us” and “I don’t want to heal if it means I’ll end up like you”
All because I tried to break up this bullying and told people it wasn’t ok to collectively badmouth someone
Reported to the admin who told me to get over it and grow up, and to scroll past if I don’t like something.
(Mind you, this was some of the worst bullying I’ve ever seen. Which is why I tried to intervene. Admin didn’t do shi* about it)
I deleted all FB benzo groups and left. Refuse to waste my breath helping anyone there
Then kinda realized this is why healed people leave. On FB anyway, like why would I stick around if people aren’t going to be respectful?
Maybe back when I was struggling I didn’t care. But now? It’s a waste of time and I have better things to do.

Just thought I’d share. Don’t treat healed people badly or they will move on
I remember being so desperate to hear success stories and have healed people come comfort me. And now I’m just laughing at how ridiculous it is for someone to try and bully a healed person. Their loss

Benzo Buddies snobs think they’re not addicts but are

« on: August 27, 2021, 07:35:54 am »


It’s been a while sine I frequented this board, mainly due to the snobbish attitudes of many posters.

Those that seem to think they are above those who have fell into the trap of dependence ” Through non fault of their own”

Those of us you would deem scum/junkies/low lives etc.. The type of people who would sneer at anyone who arrived here through no fault of there own – the drain on society!
There addiction is different to mine because I have a nice job, car and family etc.. ”

Well I hate to tell you – we’re all in the same boat! ”

I’m not one of these so called dregs of society – I’m lucky, I am physically healthy and a positive member of society. Yet I see myself always one step away from being in the gutter at all times.

So please after all these years away I hope you exercised these snobbish attitudes from this board?

Member asks if everyone at Benzo Buddies gluten, dairy, and sugar sensitive

Is everyone gluten, dairy, and sugar sensitive?

I hear people eating everything and people eating very restrictive. This is giving me severe food anxieties as I’m not sure what to do. So far I’m limiting everything, but have already become very sick and bored with what I’m eating and still loosing weight. How many people do not limit their diet and find nothing bothers them and what month after withdrawal are you in? I think most people tapering can still eat what they want till they’re off. Just curious to know.

Benzo Buddies brainwashing causes member to develop psychosis

The void 🔳 (a feeling of nothingness, anyone experienced this?)
« on: August 26, 2021, 04:53:54 pm »


Hi everyone. Hope you are holding on the best you can.


After my setback from antibiotics a year ago (that send me into CT like acute that I’m still recovering from), all the symptoms I had while tapering came back 1000 times worse and then some. But something is totally different. I’ll try my best to describe it. It’s unlike anything I’ve ever gone through.

It’s true that this whole benzo recovery time I have suffered from a severe case of dpdr, confusion, depressions and anhedonia (just to name a few). But now, for this whole year, there is another level to it. While the acute symptoms have started to ease a bit, for months I’ve felt like I am in a void of nothingness. I do not feel like I exist. I do not feel like the world exists. I do not feel anything. I can’t relate to anything. All human things seem pointless. All the drama and wants and needs and problems of humans feel pointless. It’s like I’ve been removed from the matrix and see behind it all.

I’m nowhere. I’m not here but I can’t say where I am. This feeling is beyond the unreality of dpdr. I had dpdr milder when I was in tolerance and it was nothing like this. It’s much deeper and scarier. I feel like I can’t relate to anything. Intellectually I know I am a soul but I can’t even feel my soul. There’s nothing. No memories, no persona, no attachment, no connection to my body, no wants or desires, no desire to live or to die. The most horrible place to be.

The best way to try to describe is this story of a long and bad acid trip that Ram Dass once experienced:
“A void
Gone out of life
Dead flat empty void
At the edge
What reality did I stumble into that seemed so empty and dead?
It didn’t have any opposite (life, vibrancy)

The adventure had gone out of life
The smell had gone out of the rose
Like knowing the ending to all mystery books before even reading them
It was all dead, flat, silent void
Everywhere I looked there was nothing”

This is the place I am currently in. Does this sound familiar to any of you? Is it “just” the same brain injury or is this something else like soul loss or dark night of the soul? I cannot seem to comprehend that what on earth might cause a darkness and nothingness like this. Feels it’s beyond the physical world.

I’m very sorry that Parker got that backlash for sharing that she was back on benzos. If some people decide that in order to deal with their life affairs they want to go back on whatever psych drugs, they should be respected. We should act like a support group, not a cult, IMO.

Boombox, I’m shocked by this man saying that drinking alcohol doesn’t make any difference, and charging 250 USD to say that to someone with benzo damage.

I think it was because Parker was idolized as some benzo Goddess for writing that “What is Happening” paper. She was Heather Ashton 2.0 to some people. So when she went back on benzos many probably thought they was no healing. Just my opinion.
