Re: A single benzo dose years after withdrawal

Wow. I don’t think I’ve ever witnessed a more grossly inappropriate, compassionless, or shocking display on this forum in the 7+ years I’ve been here (and I’m referring to your recent posts, […], and now yours […], not […]’s). I can find nothing in this thread that suggests scaremongering or advice not to take certain classes of drugs at all (quite the opposite in fact), and certainly did not observe anything different than what occurs on this board on a daily basis, especially involving discussions about psychiatric medications.
To […]: I understand that you’re in charge here, and thus have the ability to silence anyone who you’ve deemed “dangerous” or “lying,” without the need for additional evidence or clarification or even a chance to defend oneself at all. You’ve made it clear that the truth (of what certain members did or did not experience, of whether certain antibiotics do or do not affect GABA receptors or cause setbacks, of the absolute medical necessity of certain drugs, etc) is not what is actually important here, and instead “safety” and “scaremongering” are your main concerns. And that much is fine. But the idea that you, […], are the sole arbiter of what constitutes “safety” and “scaremongering” and even “truth,” with the power to threaten and silence anyone who disagrees with you, at will, with no counterbalance from anyone else in this community, is something that I personally find deeply disturbing and ultimately unacceptable. You only see scaremongering and deception in […]’s posts; I see it in your own.
The irony is that in your attempts to keep this a “safe space” for some members, you’ve created the opposite for others. This is no longer a place where truth matters or where different opinions and experiences can be held.
Endogenous ethanol in foods. Bread can have up to 1.4% alcohol in it

There is trace but significant enough amounts of alcohol in bread (yeast-based), fruits- especially ripe or juices, soy sauce, vinegar, and other foods. Perhaps some of us who are very sensitive should avoid these foods until we heal. A burger roll can have up to 1.4%- that’s like half of a standard cheap pilsner in the U.S. I know that when I drank even a gulp of beer I would feel paraesthesia on my face. Thoughts on any of this?
Driver License renewal

I’m curious for those that are at end of taper or very recently finished.
Could you renew your drivers license in your present condition?

“William Steven and William Smith, you both are 100% correct. I was a member at BB for about a year. While I met some great people there, the majority were almost all anti-doctor, anti-psychiatry and extreme. It was so beyond sad when people were at the end of their rope and suicidal. If people got a chance nectar mod came along to stop the suicide posts, members were jumping in to say DUDE. STAY AWAY FROM PSYCHIATRY AND FOR FUCK’S sake do NOT ENTER A HOSPITAL TO SAVE YOU FUCKING LIFE. 🤬
“Every damn thing in the world causes a ‘wave.’ From a sugar free candy to the wrong minerals in water. It’s so pathetically saddening. MADDENING. I began to buy into pushing through while I was having awful insomnia, depression to the point of suicidal ideation, all while going through family difficulties which were beyond heartbreaking and enough to level anybody, mentally healthy and the already distraught. For some reason I got caught up in the cult mentality and was, no matter what, going to finish my taper. That’s until I found myself literally thinking that death might be the way out of my misery over more losses in my life. I finally left that place and realized that I needed help. I reinstated my Benzo, although at 1/4 of my highest dose and started an antidepressant. I might not need these drugs forever, but by God I not only needed meds, but I needed to GTFO of that sewer of cultists and people who clearly presented as those in desperate need of meds themselves. Thank Christ I came to my senses, and perhaps if I’d never read anything on that site I’d have not ever thought of suicide. God help vulnerable people who join BB and buy into the crazy thinking there.”
