Benzo Buddies members tired of “horseshit” about healing

Facing the unfortunate fact: for some of us, it's permanent

Title says it all.

I’ve seen enough two, three, five year even 10 year off posts to know that there seems to be a set of preconditions which disposes some of us to permanent brain damage. Not sure what those are and of course the science isn’t there yet to tease this all apart. It’s an unfortunate truth.

11 months off, complete brain damage feeling in my head. Can’t think complex things anymore.

I’m puzzled just looking at this now?

And please…

No “we all heal in time” here… I can’t take this horseshit line of patter any longer.

This is for people trying to cope with the reality of our situation and where we go and what on Earth we do from here

You know i hear the same speach every month since im here

“Trust me pill you will be better at 6 month ”

” hang in there pill you will turn the corner at 12 month i was better ”

” come on pill i bet you will be better at 18 month like the majority ”

Well im now 19 month off and still hearing a new timeline… oh now its 24 month off.

And then people that are 24 month off+ like raksha etc are still struggling now everybody tell you ” oh well it will be better at 3 years”

Come on im bored by that process, just a wasting life and nobody know when you will get better . Even more if you will ever be

CULT WISDOM

Don’t reinstate. Try to be patient. I had a spoonful of nut butter the other day as I thought I felt better and it floored me the next day!
But today I have had a better day….and have come out of it after a few days.
I was soooooo sick at 18 months but I turned a corner at month 22. You would kick yourself if your corner is only months away…think about it. I was as sick as you…trust me!!!,,,,and things got better and I began functioning in life again
