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 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

My FINAL Klonopin Taper & Use of Benzos
« on: August 08, 2021, 03:13:47 pm »


Hi All,

I wanted to share my current experience on my taper, as well as other plans I’m considering.

– 50 yrs old
– Suffered from anxiety my whole life
I can’t even remember which quack put me on Klonopin at this point, but it’s finally time to end this nightmare. I’ve been on and off it for 20+ years.
– I never suffered from depression in my life until about 3 years ago. I’ve currently been in a MDD episode for a year and a half – yes, you read that correctly. And on work leave for the second time in one year.
– Have been diagnosed with GAD, MDD and CPTSD
This go around with another pill pusher shrink, I’ve been given Lithium, Pregabalin, Depakote, Risperdal, Latuda, Invega, Nortriptyline, and Remeron. NONE of these did anything for this MDD episode.
I am now off every medication they gave me, except Klonopin of course, and I am actually feeling better than when I was on them.
The only remaining medication I take is Prazosin at night, which is very helpful for nightmares, but I don’t consider this a neuro drug, because it’s not, so I’m comfortable still taking that.
– My goal is to never take a neuro medication again. The majority of neuroscientists, shrinks, etc. will readily admit they STILL know very little about the brain. So, how in the world can Pharma companies and doctors responsibly dole out drugs to help when they admittedly know very little about how the brain works?? Hence, no more neuro meds for me again if humanly possible.

– Beginning dose: 2mg Klonopin daily. 1mg morning | 1mg night. I’ve been on this level on & off for a long time. I’ve taped to 1mg with no problems at all. I’ve tapered completely off Klonopin before with very little symptoms along the way. I can’t remember why I started again (thank you benzo memory killer), but I think it coincided with a highly stressful job I just started, so it’s difficult to tell whether the symptoms were withdrawal or situational.
– First step: 1mg morning | 3/4mg night for 21 days. Some symptoms, but very manageable
– Second step: 1mg morning | 1/2mg night so far for 5 days. Will hold here and see how it goes. So far, so good.
– Next Steps: Will keep you posted

*Side note: I am seriously considering a Flumanezil-based more rapid detox at The Coleman Institute. I have read very mixed reviews about this, but I am still considering as another slow taper will just not work for me given my leave from work and other factors. Of course, a rapid detox could result in my condition worsening and maybe even causing me to permanently leave my job, but I’m willing to take this chance.

I personally believe in a God that created the entire universe and sent his only son Jesus to die for us to save us from our sins. That when we die we either live for eternity in heaven or hell depending on whether we have accepted Jesus as our savior. That gift of salvation is free to us all, if we chose to accept it or not is up to us. God gives us free will to chose and will never force it upon us.

I certainly hope there is a better life after this one. Because this one has rather sucked.

I agree.
Hope there is no reincarnation as do NOT have any interest in coming back.
I kind of think there is nothing that I can possibly imagine.
I think the Heaven/Hell thing is childish concept and used to control people.

I listen to Alan Watts and think he is brilliant but don’t understand it! Hope there is some universal consciousness or something that gives this meaning…

This taper failed: 60-year-old wants back on Klonopin after sitting in garage with gun in hand, ready to end it

I am 9 wks CT from K at .75 mg that I was on for three months. Now I remember why doctor put me on this to begin with. I have extreme health anxiety. I have been doing fairly well with my withdrawal symptoms and even sleeping pretty well. Now I have just got news that something was wrong with my liver function test. I haven’t talked to doctor or got results, but I am living in extreme fear and panic and it’s not the withdrawal. I just can’t deal with health issues. If he tells me there’s problems with my liver I don’t know what I’d do. I can’t even make the appointment. I don’t know how I’d […] see him or get liver tests done. Seriously what would happen if I went back on K? I know it’s not recommended but lots of people do it. I think I’d rather live my life calmer than live with this anxiety even if it means a lifetime of drugs. Or would it not work for me? I can’t do it. I mean I literally can’t. I can’t get it out of my head the what if’s. I am paralyzed with fear. I would be like this for any health emergency for life, not just because I’m in withdrawal. I have been suicidal. Yes have even sat in the garage with the car running, taken the overdose, had the gun in my hand. Please help me make a decision. What else could possibly help me. Is there a drug that’s not a benzo? I can’t wait for an antidepressant to work. I’ve tried two and they made me sick as a dog. . I can’t […] on like this. I’m 60 yrs old.
