What If... « on: July 15, 2017, 03:17:28 pm »
So, I am 67, 13 years on Xanax, 3 off. Did 3 decades drinking diet soda. So, June 1, 2017, I went off the sodas and, of course, aspartame. This morning looked at how old I look and feel. Each passing month seems worse. I was wondering what I would look like and feel like if I had never taken any of these poisons. Too late now but a real sad commentary on where I took myself. Sure many of you feel the same. 😢
Policy ignores suicide threats
Facebook will allow users to livestream attempts to self-harm because it “doesn’t want to censor or punish people in distress who are attempting suicide”, according to leaked documents.
The documents also tell moderators to ignore suicide threats when the “intention is only expressed through hashtags or emoticons” or when the proposed method is unlikely to succeed.
Any threat to kill themselves more than five days in the future can also be ignored, the files say.
Suicide contagion is the exposure to suicide or suicidal behaviors within one’s family, one’s peer group, or through media reports of suicide and can result in an increase in suicide and suicidal behaviors.
A revised benzo bill has been reintroduced into the Massachusetts legislature — HD.2918 An Act relative to benzodiazepines and non-benzodiazepine hypnotics. They have six days to get co-sponsors for the bill.
I will be sending a detailed packet of information to all 160 members of the Massachusetts House of Representatives, detailing the cult’s ties to Scientology, threats to doctors, the cult danger to medical science, examples of their harassment of doctors (and other medical workers / pharma employees), screenshots, etc. and of the urgent need to protect patients from cult abuse.
I urge readers to do the same.

“The horrific life-destroying implications of benzodiazepines have been known about for decades and yet the medical profession remain largely in denial of the damage. The doctors are in denial not us. They conspired with Big Pharma to turn us into accidental addicts. Blah blah blah. The Department of Health, the BMA, and Parliament have a duty to give justice to those whose lives have been ruined. Blah blah. There must be an inquiry for the sake of future generations and for those undergoing the horrific consequences of this iatrogenically induced pandemic. Iatrogenic? Big word that means the doctors did it and we hate them. Pandemic? An epidemic of infectious disease that has spread throughout the world? Get a grip.”
Even though it is a UK petition, signatures are being solicited, at secret online kook sites, not only from UK, but also from U.S. and Canadian, citizens. At last count they had 604 signatures. Their goal is 1000. One of the doctor-bashing groups claims to have over 1500 members but can’t even rouse a significant percentage of its members to sign the petition (they don’t have 1500 active members). Benzo Buddies claims 28,000 members but over 90% of the listed membership never posts, or has posted once, and ran from the site screaming (it is rumored doctor-basher Moran even keeps dead members on the membership rolls, sick if true). If Benzo Buddies had that many members it would be very easy to get 5,000 of them to sign a petition that bashes doctors. Some movement. It is as fake as their claims Big Pharma targeted them.
- UK population 64 million
- U.S. population 319 million
- Canadian population 36 million
That is to say, out of a combined total population of 419 million only 604 people signed this garbage. What percentage is that? Is it even a number, or is it too small to be one? Someone figure it out and let me know. Pathetic is not even the right word to describe this. It is abuse of people who are often mentally ill and desperate. It is criminal the way the leaders of these cult groups lead their members on like this.
Medication helps people live productive lives.
Crazy things I did while tapering « on: June 24, 2016, 08:52:38 pm »
I tapered several drugs about 5 years and now that I am done with I remember crazy things I did and thought, for example:
– I was afraid the heat in summer would harm the pills so I took them into the cooler, than thought that would be too cold, and so I spent days carrying pills around
– I was afraid I could run out of pills all the time
– I was afraid the crumb I took of a pill (I splitted the pills) would be to big, so I splited a new one.. Once I destroyed a hole package by splitting pills again and again
– I was afraid I would forget to take a dose so I had 5-6 timers on my phone. Every hour the phone rang..
– I was carrying a rescue pill with me and were afraid of losing my bag
– I had a bag with clothes ready so that I can run to the ER
– I wore “good” underwear because I thought I might collapse and People at ER would see me in underwear
– I gave my dog 3 bowls of water so that she would survive in case I would collapse
– I noted EVERYTHING that happened down, it was really crazy..
What I want to say is, I got used to tapering. It ended. These fears are gone. I made it. And you can make that too!!
Go on with that!
What exactly do we call an entire forum of people who hate:
- Big Pharma
- blogs with an alternate point of view
Oh, yes, that’s right – Hypocritical Hate Forums – I mean… Benzo Buddies
