I don’t know what happened to me today but the mental tension got so much, I just screamed in agony, begging God to take me…I just cried hysterically pleading for relief and release from this horrible, painful agony….Need help but there’s no help

U.S medical community: High priestess Ashton a nobody

Why is Ashton the holy grail of taper methods in the UK......

….yet not embraced by US doctors when tapering patients off benzo’s? I am so curious about this and am new here. I’m all ears!

W-BAD – World Benzo Awareness Day

“It was even suggested that Valium should be added, like fluoride, to the drinking water. Together people would be blessed both with tranquility and strong teeth.” – Prof. Heather Ashton, December 2011

W-BAD – July 11th (Ashton’s birthday)

The date was designated (by whom?) in recognition of Ashton’s contributions to the anti-psychiatry / anti-doctor / conspiracy theory cause over so many decades – together with all of the help (encouraging them to waste years, sometimes decades, of their lives on useless tapers) she has given to so many people around the world. She treated less than 400 people but what the hell…

Participation can be as simple as:

  • Telling any one person that July 11 is World Benzo Awareness Day (could be yourself if agoraphobic)
  • Suing your doctor
  • Sharing something on the Internet (the one activity the kooks are able to do no matter how bad their wave is)
  • Donating $1000 dollars, or more, to Scientology or its front group CCHR
  • Attacking a psychiatrist (or other doctor), nurse, office receptionist, family member of Big Pharma employee, total stranger, etc.
  • Putting a pamphlet in someone’s letter box, handing one out, leaving one on a bus seat or something…

Avoid words like:

  • Addiction
  • Addicts, users, abusers, etc.
  • Misuse, abuse, use, etc.
  • Benzos (even this abbreviation has been bastardized in some media so need to be careful – BZ / BZD / BDZ are acceptable medical abbreviations)
  • Hail Xenu

A day in the life of an Ashton cultist

  1. take drugs
  2. plot revenge on doctors/psychiatrists
  3. take more drugs
  4. sit on Facebook commiserating with other accidental addicts
  5. take more drugs
  6. wallow in self-pity
  7. take more drugs
  8. go on rant in tiny Facebook group that fantasizes about a legal case – that will never happen – against Big Pharma
  9. take more drugs
  10. check Benzo Buddies to see if anyone else has been sent into a giant wave by hairspray or bottled water
  11. take more drugs
  12. create an art book no one but other people in the cult will ever see
  13. take more drugs
  14. pretend to other cult members you’re smarter than a doctor or a psychiatrist
  15. take more drugs
  16. plan to taper for 10-20 years, then become protracted
  17. take more drugs
  18. worship one doctor named Ashton – who treated less that 400 patients, most of which were on other drugs – as a demi-god
  19. take more drugs
  20. deny you ever abused illegal drugs, like LSD
  21. take more drugs
  22. scan the media for any mention of benzos, then fly into a rage if a TV show offends you
  23. take more drugs
  24. be afraid, be very afraid, of butter
  25. take more drugs
  26. deny your psychiatrist’s diagnosis because mental illness does not exist
  27. take more drugs
  28. deny any connection to Scientology/CCHR but repeat exactly what they say about drugs/psychiatry
  29. take more drugs
  30. pass out at your computer

It relaxes me a bit but it can only be taken for a short period. I’ve also noticed that all the “calming” herbs etc. will turn on me after a few days, leaving me more anxious etc. I’m still trying to find a stack that works for me, because we are all different.

Kooks make up new disease: Ashton Syndrome

Ashton Syndrome

http://www.heatherashtonsyndrome.org

“Ashton Syndrome is an iatrogenic illness caused by the therapeutic use (typically longer than four weeks, usually in low doses, for months or years) and cessation of benzodiazepine drugs that down regulate GABA receptors in the brain and body resulting a cluster of potentially severe neurological and physical symptoms. Patients who develop Ashton Syndrome are medication compliant, and take benzodiazepine doses as prescribed by their doctors (except the ones that don’t – Editor).  They unknowingly (believe there is a warning on the product insert – Editor) become dependent on the drug, experience significant illness and begin to experience unusual and/or worsening symptoms. The onset of the syndrome begins when the patient consistently grows tolerant to the various actions of their therapeutic dose of benzodiazepines. Tolerance is determined when the original dose of the drug has progressively less efficacy and a higher dose is required to obtain the original effect. Tolerance develops at variable rates and to different degrees and may vary between patients based on neurological and chemical make-up. Symptoms of the syndrome often do not end upon cessation of the benzodiazepine and while they can gradually recede after months to years, occasionally symptoms persist indefinitely. Patient outcomes may range from complete recovery to death (people are dying from benzodiazepine withdrawal? where? – Editor). The phases of symptoms experienced vary from patient to patient and the extent of damage and time of recovery appears to also vary widely from patient to patient.”
