I’m going to be a devil’s advocate here……. my opinion as I can tell from these responses is going to be very unpopular. I think it’s a waste of money. She’s going to reassure you that everyone heals and validate your withdrawal. Which you can get from reading success stories here and just speaking to people on this site going through the same things. She has been through it herself yes, but she’s still basing her beliefs on seriously outdated data. To me I find more pertinent information on my own by searching myself and coming across NEW more up to date scientific studies. Having said that. If you are someone who needs to physically hear it from someone than paying that ridiculous amount of money may be for you. It’s all on what you feel you need to help you through this time because it is for sure a definite struggle.

I cannot remain silent about this any longer.

Baylissa Frederick is quite arguably the world’s foremost expert on psych med withdrawal, particularly benzodiazepine withdrawal. As […] stated, during the past 15 years, she has counseled over 8,000 people in all stages of withdrawal and withdrawal-related illness. There is no one on earth who has anywhere near her level of experience in this area. This vast experience allows her to hear your individual case and relate it to many others she has dealt with in the past.

It is absurd and ridiculous for […], or anyone else, to claim that Baylissa’s knowledge is out-of-date. Baylissa’s knowledge is completely current and as up-to-date as anyone’s out there, especially since much of what is known on this topic is a result of the work she herself is doing! Again, please provide references for your so-called “NEW, more up to date scientific studies” on benzo withdrawal. And you’ll need to do better than just give me some general reference to the ncbi website.

During the past several years, Baylissa has done so much pro bono work that she has almost gone out of business. She has had to take out personal loans and rework her fee schedule just to stay afloat. She has more people clamoring for free or near-free services than anyone can humanly handle. She barely makes enough money to keep her operation going. In fact, her fees actually fall below the industry standard for professional counseling. She has made a great deal of self-sacrifice in order to continue serving the enormous demands of the withdrawal community.

Whether or not you feel you benefit from speaking with Baylissa is your own opinion, and that cannot be argued. But I will oppose anyone who questions Baylissa’s expertise, her prices, and her selfless commitment to our community.

Benzo Buddies member attacks Bliss for fearmongering

Thoughts on Baylissa: hydroxicine, physiotherapy, could these hurt your taper?
« on: August 02, 2019, 08:26:51 pm »

OK so I really like Baylissa, her energy, her book (although I’ll never understand why she did such a fast taper), and the way she overcame it and now is helping so many people. I was watching a youtube video by her and she says some people are not healing and they think they’re going everything fine but they’re doing stuff that hinders their taper, and she gives examples: alcohol, weed, (ok these are obvious), but then she says: antihistamines, physiotherapy, supplements of foods…

So apart from the gabapentin and the trazodone for sleep, I don’t sleep and the doctor said ok take hydroxicine too at night (antihistamine). And then as my muscles are so stiff I go once a week to a physiotherapist for deep tissue massage. So I think, oh great, so the hydroxicine and/or the physiothrapy could be what’s preventing me from stabilizing after my bad crash and updose (please no comments on kindling and tolerance, don’t want to hear it).

Any thoughts/experience on healing in spite of hydroxicine, psycotherapy, trazodone, gabapentin and a little ounce of chocolate some nights? I’ll skip the chocolate tonight for sure.

Bliss censored at Benzo Buddies?

Sorry, I thought I gave her credit at the bottom when I copied and pasted, but I can’t do that as I don’t have edit or delete rights to my posts.

Well, you sure have managed to “forget” each and every time.

Do you have any idea how much time it has taken to go through and put disclaimers on all of these posts?

Any future spamming by you of Baylissa’s sermons will be deleted, and you will be placed on Post Moderation.

LAST warning– if you have any questions or comments, take them up at the Helpdesk.

Benzo Buddies censors Dr. Jenn’s LAST EVER workshop

Jennifer leigh's acceptance workshop

Hey All

I went through Jennifer Leighs Acceptance workshop this month and it was really helpful in trying to dial down my panic and it was great having her posting a 10-30 minute live video every morning to start the day. Helped with my morning monophobia.

The course work has a large amount of content, and I filled a lot of a notebook with the interesting points of view.

She takes an angle of not concentrating on ruminating on symptoms and timelines and concentrates on positivity and spirituality.

$55 for the whole month in December and it’s her last one.

https://benzowithdrawalhelp.com/workshops-3/

I have to highly recommend!

Please spare the critical critique of Jen and Bay on this post, this is just my personal experience with this workshop and I realize that many of you do not see this type of support as helpful. thank you.

Dr. Jenn and Baylissa both victims of threats from vicious benzo withdrawal community

THIS TOO SHALL PASS

A Dialogue With Baylissa

“Please don’t let Mike59 freak you out. He struggles with a deeply emotionally disturbed and scared ‘vulnerable child within’ (wow… how is that for a diagnosis? 🙂 Damn I’m good (I say humbly)… Teehee.”

Who are you to diagnose me with anything? I’m not struggling with anything.

“He is a cyberbully and stalker which means he is a coward.”

Calling me a stalker smacks of libel to me. I am not stalking, nor have I ever stalked, anyone.

“Let a Chuck Norris type/look-alike write something and see if he will put it on his site.”

Find your “Chuck Norris type” and I will gladly accommodate you. This statement of yours comes off as a sick fantasy of me being beaten to a pulp. Are you okay? You don’t sound okay.

“Years ago I was concerned about what he used to put on his page, (mainly because it made so many people upset), and I eventually had them removed.”

I’ve never removed, at your request, anything about you from this site. There has never been a single request from you to remove one pixel of content – not one pixel. You’re lying to your followers.

“I have successfully sued the Daily Mail for defamation – something all the lawyers I contacted said was one of the most difficult things to do, some said impossible – so much so that people just allow them to get away with it.”

You’re not going to intimidate me. I have the right of free speech and that right is protected under U.S. law – the highest U.S. law – the Constitution. If you, or anyone else, feels I’ve libeled them please hire an attorney and take me to court. I welcome it.
