I’m afraid ican is right, I was on valium, the most damage I got are physical, neurologicaland cognitive. The physical pain and torture from neuropathy, parathesia and muscularskeleton damage is beyond belief.
On day 5 taking v, I could not walk with feeling of Parkinson’s disease. I have been completely bed ridden ever since then for the past 13 months and still bedridden now 70 days off.
I was going to gym and office day before taking v.

How do people handle the time change? Yesterday my 1st 2 doses I stuck to the new time then by afternoon symptoms increased. Today I am a mess. My last nights 9pm I took at 8pm. My 7am at 5am. 11am at 9am.
Is there any advice on how to handle daylight savings time change?
Using Alcohol to help Benzo Withdrawal?

I was surprised to not see alcohol talked about much, granted I have searched everywhere on this forum. I was wondering if alcohol can be used to help taper from Klonopin? It seems to help me if I drink 2-3 IPAs a night.

“i am doing very well on this gofundme thanks to all my friends who have graciously donated and i am grateful. I have not been able to do anything with it for a week, due to the long power outage here. I did not even get my first ozone treatment, because the power was out at the clinic in marin county. But I will get my first one next weds with money I have raised here so far. I still would like to raise a total of $7000, which would cover ten treatments I have to work for uber the next two days to pay my bills,. so I can’t do any messaging to ask for more donations till next week and then sunday is the birthday celebration of my Guru, which I will attend. thanks to all”
Site mascot Sicko Flicko’s back begging for money for dangerous quack medical treatment

I experienced the same thing on BenzoBuddies. At first it was a great forum and others on that forum helped me through the toughest times of my withdrawal. After I healed, I thought I would pay it forward. I was doing a good job helping others and then decided to introduce outside sources of hope and encouragement. I was instantly reprimanded and when I complained, they pretty much locked down my account to where I couldn’t post anything without moderator approval, nor could I Personal Message anyone. My account was for all intents and purposes…worthless and not usable. I told one moderator in particular that you need people on the site that healed to help and give hope to others. She dismissed it and said I thought I was “special” and “better than everyone else.” Because I volunteered my time on the site? Needless to say I don’t go on BBs any longer. Their draconian rules are only meant to stifle what they claim they are about, which is giving others hope. Too many rules, too many moderators on a power kick and too political…that’s how I would sum up BenzoBuddies. Plus too many hard core people that claim they never heal when they don’t tell “rest of the story.” Almost all of those cases involve being poly drugged and having preexisting medical conditions prior to any type of anti-psychotic drug use.

The practice of granting secret, esoteric wisdom that is accessible only to the elect through loyalty to a charismatic but flawed figure who dispenses their occult knowledge through personal revelatory insight while shunning and then casting out members of the group who do not practice exact adherence to a set of seemingly arbitrary dictates while still accruing a devoted coterie of followers, may or may not be applicable to this person, but it sure seems like the attributes one would ascribe to a cult.
We need a method (or probably many methods) of healing that is public and reproducible. That is one of the goals of working together. Perhaps one day a Benzo-savior will appear before us, ready to bath our minds in the waters of true healing, and we will all be:
“remade in the way that trees are are new,
made new again, when their leaves are new,
pure and ready to ascend to the stars.”
But until then, I feel like there is a lot of real work to do.
