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…

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?

Sometimes, I’m afraid to open my email because it might be more than I can handle.

I have a phobia of my phone and checking messages

Sometimes, I go weeks without going to my mailbox.

I’m kinda terrified of my mom because she knocks too loudly and comes unexpectedly.

I strongly dislike the smell of food cooking like bread, cookies, garlic, and most everything.

The smell of my neighbor’s barbecue is too strong.

I strongly dislike the smell of fabric softener and dryer sheets in the air outside.

When my neighbors slam their cupboard doors, it makes me go crazy in my head. ???


Pineal Gland Awakened? Connection between mind and body
« on: August 23, 2010, 03:53:07 pm »


Hey guys, I’ve been doing a lot of research lately after reading some pretty disturbing posts about DR and DP.

French Philosopher Rene Descartes believed the pineal gland to be “the seat of the soul” where mind and body met. Interesting note!

In the average person, the pineal gland is atrophied and dormant. And if you ever read some of this guy’s philosophy on life and God you would think he was going through benzo withdrawal. It’s bizarre as hell and I remember writing essays on his philosophy during college when I was taking philosophy as a minor and thinking to myself that this guy is on a whole new wave length of thinking.

Recent studies indicate that the pineal gland (The Third Eye) can be awakened by extreme pressure or concussions to the head. After the pineal gland has been awakened, it is very hard for it to go dormant again.

This pineal gland is activated by Light, and it controls the various bio-rhythms of the body. It works in harmony with the hypothalamus gland which directs the body’s thirst, hunger, sexual desire and the biological clock that determines our aging process. When it awakens, one feels a pressure at the base of the brain.

While the physiological function of the pineal gland has been unknown until recent times, mystical traditions and esoteric schools have long known this area in the middle of the brain to be the connecting link between the physical and spiritual worlds. Considered the most powerful and highest source of ethereal energy available to humans, the pineal gland has always been important in initiating supernatural powers. Development of psychic talents has been closely associated with this organ of higher vision.

Anyhow, I thought this was interesting and would probably explain why we all get this severe head pressure and why we all seem to be philosophizing so much about the meaning of life. I’m going to email my philosophy professor and get his opinion on the pineal gland and how Descartes viewed it. If we’re going to have this for the time being, why not have some fun with it’s mystical powers instead of being freaked out.

BTW: I have no evidence of this, and am simply speculating. So please don’t take this to heart, or think I’m some new nutcase or something. It just seems so interesting to me and if anyone has some insight please share. And if this isn’t the right forum to post this, I apologize.


Benzo Buddies censorship? What’s happening?

Baylissa tried to sign on with her real name and was asked by a moderator to change the username to something less identifying! She posted proof of this to her FB group. I saw the ticket about the name change. There was no intent to deceive here, simply her desire to come online and correct what she saw as misinformation about her practice.

^^^^^ … Yes, this.

It’s bizarre that almost the entire ‘Benzo Community’ knows this, except the very people that dealt with Baylissa’s application to join the BB forum don’t… The BB ‘Admin Team’ lead by Colin.

Something’s very wrong somewhere in the ‘Admin Team Communication Department’, that’s for sure… and it isn’t over at the ‘Bloom In Wellness’ office.

It’s right here… right here in this one.

I’m going to be a devil’s advocate here……. my opinion as I can tell from these responses is going to be very unpopular. I think it’s a waste of money. She’s going to reassure you that everyone heals and validate your withdrawal. Which you can get from reading success stories here and just speaking to people on this site going through the same things. She has been through it herself yes, but she’s still basing her beliefs on seriously outdated data. To me I find more pertinent information on my own by searching myself and coming across NEW more up to date scientific studies. Having said that. If you are someone who needs to physically hear it from someone than paying that ridiculous amount of money may be for you. It’s all on what you feel you need to help you through this time because it is for sure a definite struggle.

I cannot remain silent about this any longer.

Baylissa Frederick is quite arguably the world’s foremost expert on psych med withdrawal, particularly benzodiazepine withdrawal. As […] stated, during the past 15 years, she has counseled over 8,000 people in all stages of withdrawal and withdrawal-related illness. There is no one on earth who has anywhere near her level of experience in this area. This vast experience allows her to hear your individual case and relate it to many others she has dealt with in the past.

It is absurd and ridiculous for […], or anyone else, to claim that Baylissa’s knowledge is out-of-date. Baylissa’s knowledge is completely current and as up-to-date as anyone’s out there, especially since much of what is known on this topic is a result of the work she herself is doing! Again, please provide references for your so-called “NEW, more up to date scientific studies” on benzo withdrawal. And you’ll need to do better than just give me some general reference to the ncbi website.

During the past several years, Baylissa has done so much pro bono work that she has almost gone out of business. She has had to take out personal loans and rework her fee schedule just to stay afloat. She has more people clamoring for free or near-free services than anyone can humanly handle. She barely makes enough money to keep her operation going. In fact, her fees actually fall below the industry standard for professional counseling. She has made a great deal of self-sacrifice in order to continue serving the enormous demands of the withdrawal community.

Whether or not you feel you benefit from speaking with Baylissa is your own opinion, and that cannot be argued. But I will oppose anyone who questions Baylissa’s expertise, her prices, and her selfless commitment to our community.

Kooks come up with new disease – benzo flu – and wonder if it’s Covid

Benzo Flu or Covid??
« on: January 10, 2021, 08:00:29 am »


Hi Everyone,

I’m nearly a year off – yay!!!! I’ve had 3 COVID tests whilst being in withdrawal & all have been negative – I’ve put it down to Benzo flu, I’ve gotten slogged this week with super stressful stuff (identity theft & subsequently had to prove the $5,000 telephone bill
Wasn’t mine, car broke down etc) & Saturday morning I woke up with a super sore throat & flu like symptoms.

Withdrawal in the time of COVID ain’t no fun at all. How do you deferentiate between Benzo flu or if it’s a virus or COVID? I’ve been going for COVID tests to rule out COVID but does anyone have any ideas how to determine if it’s Benzo flu without going for a test? I have a sore throat that comes & goes so I’m leaning towards it’s Benzo Flu.

Almost one year since I jumped. I’m praying/pleading/begging that this will
All he over soon and I can have my mind, body & soul back. Lord only knows how I’ve come this far but some how I have. Thanks for your support & feedback.

I thought I had a bad luck, but you’re probably the unluckiest member of BB… I don’t think there’s a way to know if it’s benzo flu or real deal unless you test for viruses.

Benzo flu tricked me into getting tested in Nov and the test was negative.

However, I did get covid in Dec for real – you will know the difference if you get the full symptoms.

I survived and am back to my “benzo functional” again:) I am thankful.
