Benzo Buddies kooks add penis problems to list of 90,000,000 benzo withdrawal symptoms

Penis Problem?
« on: February 21, 2020, 05:45:30 pm »

[Buddie]

Hey so before “go get tested” or “you need a real doctor” I’ll say I have been tested for all STDs multiple times as well as had an urologist look at this as well so here it goes..

My penis.

While I was in tolerance withdrawal I had a bad UTI infection that caused the doctors to put me on an antibiotic that really started this whole withdrawal process off with a big bang. He said it was either a UTI or Balantis as the tip was red and sensitive. At one point my balls were aching horribly because of an infection but there just wasn’t a clear problem. He just threw more antibiotics at it which caused my withdrawal to really suck.

It cleared up to 80 with no daily pain so I haven’t thought much of it. Since then I am 3 months post jump but there is a slight redness in the area at the tip of my penis that doesn’t necessarily hurt anymore but just comes and goes and seems to effect the way I pee and often times I “dribble” pee out after I’m done.

It’s not an STD, and there is no constant pain, although about a year ago there was. This just seems to be what’s left of it and it just annoys me so.

Has anyone had any genital problems coming off and any success stories of when they went away. Hands down it has gotten so much better but I’m just at a loss as to why it slightly still bothers me.

I’ve often thought of going to someone. I remember one BB member who said that he saw a psychic, and she told him he’d get well and be through this. I don’t know who it was, but I think he isn’t on here anymore

How about a psychic medical person? I’d be interested to hear what they have to say? You can talk to them on the phone? I called a psychic years ago and the man was very accurate about my life.

I know a lady who does “energy healing”. I’m kind of skeptical but people have told me her treatments work and she doesn’t charge a penny. I might try it. At least if it doesn’t work it just doesn’t work, no nasty side affects. Who knows.

I had a phone conversation with a medical intuitive. Her reviews were great. But she was entirely useless and cost $300 to boot. I wouldn’t do it again unless I absolutely felt certain that the person was true and reliable.

I went to an energy healer once and it made me feel worse. I would never go to one of those again. I wasted alot of money going to this lady.

Now that is interesting, and unfortunate.

Benzo Buddies claims common cold causes waves

Wave from a cold?
« on: December 18, 2019, 06:14:48 pm »

[Buddie]

Does anyone else get waves from a cold? Brain fog, dizziness, can’t concentrate, exhausted, can’t think straight, insomnia…

I got sick a bunch of times with cold/flu bugs during WD and I could never figure out if they were legitimate colds due to a weakened immune system or “benzo flu“. Either way, raw ginger helped me a great deal. I think the WD exacerbates any normal cold symptoms you get. […] you feel better soon!

[Buddie]

Yes! Just as I was starting to think I was turning a corner I got sick last Wednesday and hit by a wave of extreme insomnia with added night terrors (yay!) anxiety, confusion and irritability and now my period is due in less than two weeks. […] you feel better. You’re not alone ❤️

Yes! I actually think my waves come in the form of a cold or flu. If other people have colds or flus, I get them very badly and have all the worst symptoms and include more benzo symptoms. If other people do not have colds and flus, and it’s just me, I more look at is as just benzo withdrawal, but it’s very much the same.

I got a cold right after visiting family for Thanksgiving – my little granddaughter had a bad cold. I know I caught it from her. For me it definitely wasn’t a wave manifesting as a cold. There were also some stressful family dynamics. Whether it was stress or the cold or both, I went into a tough wave for about 10 days. I’m in a window now. Over the cold and feeling good.

I […] you feel much better soon!

Benzo Buddies: “Is it possible that coconut oil could cause a worsening of symptoms?”

Coconut oil
« on: December 14, 2019, 11:50:08 pm »

[Buddie]

Two days ago I ate some coconut oil to help with what I think I have is some candida issues going on from the stress of this withdrawal and I’m in the worst wave I’ve been in, in a long time.

Feel like I’m detoxing badly. So sick. I had the worst anxiety after I took it and went to the bathroom like 4 times that day.

Benzo Buddies crosses bread off list of safe foods (it has alcohol in it)

Endogenous ethanol in foods. Bread can have up to 1.4% alcohol in it
« on: December 13, 2019, 03:42:36 pm »

[Buddie]

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?

How long will the obsessed Benzo Buddies leader’s nearly decade-long feud with Jana Hill go on?

Titration, Patents, and Fantastical Claims

Re: http://www.benzobuddies.org/forum/index.php?topic=231829.msg2975666#msg2975666

For many years there were attempts to promote a particular unproven/untested set of titration protocols. Further, those promoting these methods were engaged in rubbishing completely standard (and effective for most) pill-splitting tapers and characterizing them as ‘cut & suffer‘. They even peppered posts at BenzoBuddies with such language – this is when I first intervened in this matter (January, 2013). Even though Jana Hill (the person behind the protocols) closed down her forum some years ago, there continue to be a small number of very vocal individuals who seek to promote her untested claims as somehow proven or guaranteed to work. Indeed, there has been a recent uptick in activity promoting her protocols both within and without BB. When there is any attempt at push-back, the rather extreme reaction (including threats of lawsuits) are rather illustrative of the problem. If this fails, then perhaps one of Hill’s supporters will instead offer to purchase BB. No.

Jana Hill applied for a patent in 2012. As I suggested a short time later here at BB, the claims made in her patent were extremely flawed, some were even dangerous. Indeed, all twenty claims were rejected. Only with the help of the patent examiner (who apparently redrafted three claims for her) was a patent (with three claims) eventually allowed.

Hill seems to misunderstand (or wishes others to misunderstand) that because a patent is awarded, this somehow means that her protocols are: 1) tested and verified; and 2) are defensible. The award of a patent does NOT connote these things. A recent quote from Hill at the Benzodiazepine Information Coalition website:

Quote from: J.Hill
Crazy Canuk , in his opening statement, says that he learned this taper protocol from its developer through BenzoDetoxRecovery. He states that he hopes that it’s okay to make his videos ostensibly describing it. It isn’t; it wasn’t.

Using the protocol incorrectly tarnishes its good name and places users at risk. He presents it incorrectly.

The authentic BenzoMicroTaper protocol USPTO 9301963 has a 13 year record of success. It is verified by the US patent office as novel( it was not previously available), needed, and understandable by “those practiced in the art”.

If The Coalition’s rules allow it, I will post the way that you can find the authentic BenzoMicroTaper . False versions now seem ubiquitous. A summary is available for the patientsÂ’ doctors. You can ask for it using the “reply” button.

Hill’s statements that her method, “is verified by the US patent office as novel (it was not previously available), needed, and understandable by ‘those practiced in the art'”, is extremely misleading and disingenuous.

It is probably best for me to simply link to the patent and some information about patents:

There is a lot I could get into, but my time is limited – I’ll leave it for readers to interpret (and discuss if they wish). But if any of you would prefer to read something a little more bite-sized, please check out the attached document*, which was supplied by Hill to the US Patent office in support of her appeal after the patent was initially rejected.** It is replete with nonsense, false claims, and utilization of quite extraordinary language.

* Available via the link at the foot of this post (with a small green paperclip image next to it).

** Please note: Jana Hill’s personal details appear in the attached document. However, Hill long ago chose to make her name and location public knowledge (and again very recently through the media). And the attached document is a public record.
