I have tried my best to stay clear of the drama but I see no other way to separate my site from all that has happened.

Then why, Donna, is Mike59 still a member of your site?? He is the Ground Zero of all this ‘drama’ and pain.

Squeaky wheel

It sure does seem that the squeaky wheels get the grease around here. I understand that some folks here need more support than others. But, with my hypochondria, the only thing I get lately is everyone else’s symptoms. I need to take a break.

I started out at .25 mg Ativan at night for insomnia due to perimenopause and two years later was up to 1.5 mg at night. Tapered for 7 months by dry cutting. Jumped from .25 mg and Benzo Free on November 24, 2014!

There are moments that mark your life, moments when you realize nothing will ever be the same. And time is divided into two parts, before this and after this.

Hi, although it seems to be published by Scientology which is actually not
appreciated on BB……there is some truth to it……in my opinion.

I can’t understand why you feel helpless now. We are lucky to get so
much valuable info and support on this Forum…..we can pass our knowledge
on to Doctors ( who are willing to listen ), people on the outside world etc.

Knowledge is the power.. which will help to change the current corrupted
system one day…..keep spreading the word please…it will help
our next generation to be more educated and cautious.

being in bed 2
« on: November 06, 2015, 01:56:30 pm »


I asked earlier if it was okay to stay in bed sometimes. I got some answers, thank you to the people who did that. The general consensus was do what your body feels like doing. The thing is, it is more that I want to stay in bed because I feel depressed and can’t see that I will ever get better. I am staying at my mum’s house at the moment and it is good to have someone to talk to and just be there. But on Tuesday I have to go home and I will be on my own again. I don’t know what to do. I have been stuck on these drugs for five years.

Hi Gilly

I think you are coping as well as you can in this situation. You get up when you can, you get dressed, you watch TV, you do puzzles, you go to the shop, etc etc. You get a meal ready at night for your boyfriend. You do housework. When you can’t do these things you stay in bed. That is absolutely OK. this is not going to last forever. I know some people think you should just force yourself to get up – family I mean, not buddies. But it is okay to be in bed. I am sorry you can’t stay longer at your mum’s and can understand that you are worried about being at home on your own again. Try just to focus on today and tomorrow maybe. By Tuesday you may have a window.

Big Hugs


Benzo Buddies fanatic FinallyJoining63 a menace to sanity

The following Public Health Warning (with comments from an anonymous helper at Benzo Buddies) about one FinallyJoining63 came across my desk today:
Here’s one of many nasty posts from self-proclaimed benzo junkie FinallyJoining63 (who’s trying to sell her book based upon Benzo Buddies accounts).
FinallyJoining63’s still having a tough time making friends on Benzo Buddies. Here, the bitter narcissist offers harmful “advice” to a suffering buddy, and says he should “beat himself up” for taking a one Z-drug rescue pill:

Since Drew already said it, maybe I can agree with him without people who stalk me jumping on me for it.

People! Like Drew says, please avoid rescue doses! You are hurting yourself when you do this and just dragging out your healing. People saying “Don’t beat yourself up” are doing you no service. Maybe you SHOULD beat yourself up. The suffering, healing side of you should take a stand to the boss person who’s making the decisions and authorizing and justifying the rescue doses. Say “Hey, knock it off! You aren’t doing me any favors with this!”

Please, no lectures about not being “supportive.” Saying it’s okay to treat yourself this way is not supportive, it’s enabling.

PS Princegbrett–I love the language of the Bible.

Please beware of this dangerous Benzo Buddies member. 


Are Benzos Causing this?
« on: October 30, 2015, 11:50:10 am »


I joined to get more info on Benzos.

I have been taking Alprazolam for 7 years.

I take .5mg to .75mg a day, my dosage is .25mg

I have not started a taper.

I will write a full description of my issues later but a short on it is I was an self medicating alcoholic for 13 years and for the last 7 of those 13 years I mixed alcohol and benzos. I quit drinking just over 4 months ago (cigarettes as well) and have been having very old neuropathy type symptoms on the left side of my body. I still take the Alprazolam (.5mg to .75mg) daily and wondering if this could mixed with the long term drinking could be there cause of my issues. I will write more later. Thank you for having me.
