No guts, no glory

Recovery a lie?

I have been back in a horrible wave for the past 10 days that is just as bad as acute. Not sleeping at all again. Going 3 – 4 days in row with zero sleep. How is this even possible when I was doing so well for over a month! I must be permanently damaged and will never recover. If I had any guts, I would put a bullet in my head!

Turning off user signatures

I noticed that I was obsessing too much with other users’ signatures and taper histories. I’ve turned that off, and it’s made me feel better….

I’d like to make a suggestion for you- try a lightbox. It may be just the ticket you need to feel better.

I agree about user signatures. They can really freak me out too. I stay away from the horror stories and stick with threads like Accentuate the positive. Also, when I started my taper 7 weeks ago I literally sat on my couch all day on benzo buddies. I now go on twice a day for fifteen minutes and get on with my life. We have no choice in what we are going through but we do have a choice in how we deal with it.

Thank goodness the signature lines are in small print. Many are way too lengthy and to me your entire history and tapering schedule from day one doesn’t belong there. I wish folks would modify their signatures. I just try to ignore these unless I have some reason to want to know a person’s back story. 

Will zoe123 ever leave benzo forums?

There are plenty of other chat venues on the web. Yahoo chat, msn , skype , etc….

We don’t advise our members use other chat venues. That’s been done in the past with disastrous results. In one case, the troll who frequents this forum, found one of the off wite chat rooms and cause a great deal of upset. Remember you don’t really know who you’re chatting with.

Naturally, you’ll all decide on your own if you want to go this route but it’s highly recommended that you do not.

I believe that happened at BB too. Sorry but true.

Rob,

You know the risks. If that’s the route you decide on, I can’t stop you. I can only remind our members to be careful. Anything after that is your own responsibility.

Hope , there are literally hundreds of people from the benzo community using other chats on the web, with no disastorous results, I did when I was was early off.

It’s a lot for your member

s to continue to ask you to moderate chat and again make the forum vunerable.
