hi guys, currently starting up the second half of my taper again now that college is done with, i can focus more on getting through this instead of worrying about deadlines.

so i was introduced to a cryospa near my home by a friend, and initially wanted to go to check on their CBD oil they had for sale. i’ve been using CBD to help with the rebound anxiety and insomnia, though it doesn’t fix everything, it helps. i ended up trying a 3 minute cryotherapy session for free, the woman there was sweet and her daughter was actually understanding of my brain injury and also my withdrawals. i did a lot of research and looked at some good studies done on anxiety/depression and cryo, withdrawals and cryo, etc. it was a small, family owned place and thus i ended up coming back and trying it again last week, then purchasing a month pass for treatments for around 200 bucks. usually medical cryotherapy costs, bare minimum, 60 bucks per session so i think it was a good deal.

this whole week i’ve been back into my taper head on, getting horrid migraines every day, cold sweats, severe depression and ideation, that infamous klonopin chest pressure, panic attacks, awful nausea/vomiting and so on. i’ve almost felt like i had the flu and was about to pass out at points. :'( i go in for one 3 minute session as much as i can, i’ve gone about six sessions now and i can honestly say i feel like it’s easing a lot of my symptoms’ intensity. i’m kind of a wuss, and even i was able to do the sessions, it’s not really that bad compared to sitting with my withdrawals every day. i think taking a cold shower is more uncomfortable somehow. it also gets easier every time.

when i go in, i do the full body treatment up to my neck, and it helps neutralize my feverish/cold sweat episodes for the rest of the day, makes me feel less tired, sometimes even less nauseated. with my brain injury, i’m on bedrest anyways, so i need the good circulation i get from cold shock. it helps the achy feeling in my body, and REALLY helps my back pain. i feel like i can finally sleep after i go, because my muscles just relax and my swelling and pain goes down throughout everywhere. it’s a little early to tell but i think it’s even helping clear my brain fog and dp/dr a bit, i feel ‘clearer’ for an hour or so. i get an endorphin rush afterwards, as well as norepinephrine, which i’m sure helps in other aspects, and in general it just makes me feel relaxed and not so wound up and sick.

i haven’t seen a lot of people talk about this kind of therapy for withdrawals but i’ve been told it can help with them and personally, i look forward to going in every chance i get when i feel absolutely horrible. i always feel somewhat better if not a lot better after. if you can find a local place, it can be pretty affordable compared to other medical therapies and i would recommend it (which i don’t say much, i’m a huge skeptic on this stuff). i will post another thread if i see any major new improvements after my 15th session (which is when the promising study done on anxiety and depression ends).

thanks and my thoughts are will all you guys 🙂

Crippled by Ashton dogma, Benzo Buddies members unable to watch movies

Infinity war

Not sure if this is the relevant place to post this but a few nights ago I tried watching the new Avengers film. I hate missing out on the new releases due to withdrawal and not being able to go to the cinema. Anyways big mistake, wayyyyyyy overstimulating.

Anyways the end was horrific.

Something about that imagery stuck with me. I’ve been in a crippling depression, depersonalised state for ages now and sometimes it really feels like my body is just disintegrating from the inside. I think in my currently altered state it is hard to escape the negative feelings, so strangely I’m finding parralels in my current situation with the end of a superhero movie. Strange

The further I get out, the deeper I’ve been looking into alternative healing methods. The two that have really stuck with me are growth hormones and stem cells, but moreso stem cells. They seem to have almost magic like regeneration properties and are used for all kinds of autoimmune diseases and even M.S. (which is similar in symptoms to benzo wd)

The problem is that the most effective kind aren’t available in the US and are super expensive. You have to go to Panama to have it done and it can be upwards of 20k based on my research. I’m gonna keep digging and will see what more I can find, just wanted to share because I truly believe this could have some benefits.

If anyone has already tried, let us know.

Here is one of the few things that sparked my interest on the subject:

here we are, 18 month after, a simple glass of fruit juce and my symptoms raves up realy bad i feel anxious and hyperactiv and fainting because it’s too much sugar in my blood too quick and my CNS cant deal with it

what the point to hang in there at this point ?

body is just completly ruined from this poison, adrnenal HPa axis, CNS, all my body is just completly ruined

Might probably reinstate if nothing change this month, just debilating life and symptoms dont know what the point to suffer like this if reinstatement and updose stabilise me and permit me to have something wich is like a “life”

Will not deal with this hell anymore month, nothing change after 18 month it will not at 2 years so what the point ?

i have to wait for improvement for 3-4 years ? Nop i will not, dont have any faith or power anymore to hang on for this long
