BENZO CULT LINGO A-Z

Psychiatrist Robert Jay Lifton defines “loaded language” as a technique used in brainwashing.

5150’d – getting locked away in a psychiatric ward, see The Funny House

Benzo Belly – gastroenterologic system affected, including the organs from mouth to anus

Benzo Brain – persistent or intermittent combination of symptoms originating from inside the head, head pressure, vestibular system disturbance and psychiatric disturbances

Benzo Flu – anything, anything at all

Healing Happens – meaningless

Kpin – the medication Klonopin

PDOCS – see psychs

Psychs – psychiatrists and psychologists (Seen by the paranoid cult as being the ultimate in evil and corruption on Earth; out to destroy us all by cutting out our brains with transorbital lobotomies, or zapping us into submission with electro-convulsive therapy (ECT), or zombifying us with selective serotonin re-uptake inhibitors (SSRIs) like Ritalin and Prozac. The cult front-group called the Citizen’s Commission on Human Rights (CCHR), a la Orwell, is dedicated to destroying these evil beings known as psychs, but who are really members of the fifth galactic invader force.)

SP – Suppressive Person, an evil person; someone who criticizes Scientology in any way

Squirrel – In cult jargon, squirrel refers to someone who is too insane to follow Standard Scientology Tech

The Funny House – a psychiatric ward

Wave – a period of feeling badly after feeling better; this is fairly common because withdrawal is not linear

Window – a period of time where one has relief from symptoms; maybe not complete relief but a noticeable break in symptoms
