End Psychiatry team vows to make citizens arrests of psychiatrists

“By the way, stringing psychiatrists up is a phrase implying death penalty after arrests are made for psychiatric torture. The opcat will be ratified december and my team will begin making citizens arrests upon those involved in the application of psychiatric torture. Deal with it.”

BENZO BELLY NIGHTMARES

Benzo Belly

Before I started my taper, I worked out every day, ate super healthy, and was in tip top shape. Standing at 5’8″, I weighed about 185 lbs, and was 7% body fat. Then I began my taper 9 months ago, and of course everything changed. During my 6 month taper, I could not work out, better yet even go walking. During that time period I gained 10 lbs (no help to the Remeron I was on for insomnia), and went from 7% body fat to about 30%. Yeah I know, all those years of hard work in the gym, I went from looking like a body builder to looking like I had the biggest beer belly ever. (all the body fat is basically in my abdominal region). I quit taking the Remeron 2 months ago, and I basically lost 25 lbs in 1 month. This was due to kicking Remeron and not eating at all for the 1st month in withdrawal. So anyways, I’ve been running for 30 mins a day, usually within the 3 mile range, and even been doing intermittent fasting. The problem is that I have only lost like 3 lbs total within the past 2 months, and I’ve been running every day and eating extremely healthy. It’s crazy because even though I weigh 160 lbs, my body fat is still around 20%. This is so frustrating because I’ve lost all this weight, but my body fat doesn’t seem to want to go away. I’m starting to blame benzo withdrawal for this and lack of sleep (you burn about 80 calories per hour when you sleep, and I’m dealing with am extreme case of insomnia). Has anyone else had trouble kicking body fat around the abdominal region, even with rigorous exercise? If so, how long was it before you started making some serious progress? Thank you!

I’m surprised no one answered this, as I figured many people have the same problem. I’m old, 65 years, but I certainly felt the extra fat especially in my middle region, and had terrible benzo belly. It seemed as if I was lugging around extra fat all over. I especially gained weight right when my taper was over with. I don’t weigh myself, but at one point I weighed 116 according to the doctor’s scale. Then after tapering was finished I was weighed again, and I weighed 130! It seems that just recently I’ve noticed a change. My body is getting to the same level it was before benzos. I’m a very slow healer, though, and have had severe symptoms. I really think there must be something about benzos being stored in the muscles and fat. I’ve never had this before. I’m sure you’ll recover sooner and have the body you used to have!

Husband who tried to off himself with 48 Xanax pills after video went viral saved by rehab

  • Ronald and Carla Hiers were seen writhing around in a Memphis street after injecting heroin
  • The pair had been together for 20 years when they were filmed last October
  • After being saved by paramedics, Carla was arrested on outstanding charges
  • Ronald went home and tried to kill himself with 48 Xanax pills and more heroin
  • His estranged daughter then persuaded him to enter a rehab center
  • They are no longer together and live in separate states
  • Both have completed separate treatment plans and are now clean and sober

A husband who was filmed overdosing with his wife after shooting up heroin in one of the most symbolic videos of America’s drugs epidemic last year has shared new details of their crippling addiction and how they overcame it.

On October 3, 2016, Ronald and Carla Hiers were filmed crawling along the sidewalk and passed out at a bus stop in Memphis after injecting heroin in the bathroom of a Walgreen’s nearby.

Footage of them writhing around in broad daylight as they reeled from the drug’s effects attracted millions of views on Facebook.

The couple have since completed separate rehab programs and are no longer living together or even in the same state.

His addiction began at 13 when he and his friends started sniffing paint. They graduated on to marijuana and then began using harder drugs when he was around 18.

Not long after the video went viral last year, Ronald was admitted to Turning Points in Tennessee.

Carla was released from jail several weeks later and went to a separate facility in Massachusetts.

Psychiatrist tells fat addict to lose some weight

Psychiatrist says fat is the culprit
« on: November 11, 2017, 06:18:13 pm »

So after speaking with the psychiatrist, he said that withdrawal is caused by still having the drug in the body. He told me I am one of those that metabolized medication slowly. There are 2 factors and depending on your DNA, determines your metabolism. Where is the medicine stored? In fat cells! He looked at me in a certain way when he said that. I need to lose about 30. I started exercising back in August for just 3 weeks. I lost 5 pounds and the symptoms started to subside. Food for thought!

After 39 months of post-taper hell 68-year-old wants back on Xanax so he can live again

Better Off, Really?

Well, I am 68. Off 13 years of benzos for 39 months now. To say this has been hell is being kind. I can’t think of a strong enough word. So, in the past years I seldom sleep. This has led to severe depression, extreme sadness, no life,no hope. I have aged externally and internally exponentially. Given my age I am believing now I would have been better off staying on. I know many heal, and I also know some do not. I am just venting here. I realize most comments will be stay strong and don’t give in and you will heal. I felt that way for many months and years. No more.

So, I am giving this through February. If after that I am not better, I am going back on and buying myself whatever good weeks or months I can grab. I can’t take years more of this. I see some have been 5 or more years struggling. Maybe if I were younger. I didn’t work 30 years and save money to now stay home and cry and hope. Which is worse really, no life or a short time of living again. Hmmmmm….
