Your Nurse/Professor friend could be suffering from CRI (Cranial Rectal Insertion). I don’t think it is borderline! I think it is full blown CRI!

And her point is?

This ticks me off. I’ve been diagnosed with this for over 30 years–yeah, I’m old–and recently received another dx of the same symptoms (although lessening in severity; a few mechanisms for this decrease have been proposed). This doc called it complex PTSD. I’m Aspergerish and was bullied and ostracised as a kid. She was adamant that that was traumatic.

ADD is another possible differential diagnosis. She ought to look up advances in the diagnosis and treatment of BPD, for there is a lot going on she seems, from OP, entirely unaware of.

BPD has nine criteria, five of which must be met to establish the diagnosis. Most of these are pretty different from one another, so guess what, psych nurse: the population of BPD patients is a diverse bunch. Those of us who are aware of our symptoms as they arise often take great pains to avoid a stereotypically ‘borderline’ response when triggered or otherwise displeased. We know that to react in the moment brings, as often as not, unwelcome consequences.

Yeah, some ppl with this condition are rageful, childish and manipulative as hell, seeking to incite drama where there need be any. Many do have anxiety disorders, for any number of reasons, and so have been prescribed that one thing we all have in common: benzos. (And since benzos are so good at dysregulating thoughts and actions, I will concede that someone with BPD who is also under the influence of benzos and/or alcohol is indeed capable of creating controversy and dissent. may seek to manipulate. May effectively do so until her target chooses to act to stop it.

But I doubt that many people with BPD who do NOT use benzos come on here to p%$# people off.

Just sayin

My mom and other family members love to laugh about panic disorder and anxiety. Why? Because they don’t understand it. My distant cousin who’s gone through some trauma of her own is on 4 different medications for anxiety and depression. The way they just talked about her and another family member who has social anxiety really angered me. They dismiss everything about this illness and just made fun of how she shakes constantly and how the other one can’t look up to say hi to a stranger. I heard them in the back laughing how everyone has a panic disorder. The ignorance just blows my mind.

I don’t find this funny at all. I’m shaking cause I’m so upset right now. What would they do if they experienced 5 minutes of panic? 5 minutes of the mental torment. I bet they’d swallow every pill in sight as well in the hopes of feeling normal again. I know I’m healing and what I’m going through is w/d but there are people out there with legitimate illnesses. For some people this isn’t w/d and is a part of their everyday lives..

Do we need to get cancer for someone to actually care? Do people with mental illnesses need to be hooked up to 4 ivs in a hospital bed for someone to understand? This is not cool. There needs to be more awareness, more compassion in our society. This just sickens me.

I might’ve lost my temper at them and am complelety ok with that. Someone needed to.

Cult member praises anti-doctor brainwashing

Unlearning the lies benzos told me
« on: March 09, 2017, 03:06:43 pm »

As you can see, I am tapering from Ativan, directly. I dose only once a day, which produces interdose withdrawals. It’s not easy, but none of it is for any of us. It’s not just me. I cut last night, and today is terrible. Chest pain and palps. Anxiety. Anyway, this morning I am deciding to try to unlearn everything that Ativan has taught my body…here are some lies that Ativan taught my body…
1. You can’t handle your anxiety or insomnia. You need me.
2. What, you are going to go off me, gonna cut me out of your life slowly? No, you need more of me!
3. See, you can’t sleep without me. Here you are cutting me out of your life. You need more of me, not less. And I will fight you to prove it.
4. You are so sick: your tummy hurts, your head hurts. You need me. Just don’t cut me out. I will make you feel better.
5. See, you are cutting me out of your life, and your anxiety is worse. And you aren’t going to get better until you add me back into your life.
6. Oh, your chest hurts? Your heart is racing? Feel those occasional thumps, all me baby! Let me in and it will feel better!
7. Tinnitus, hmm. I will make you forget about it. It won’t exist.
8. Honey, I see your tears and hear your failure. You’re a failure because of me. Let’s start all over. Those tears and fails will go away.
9. Your body isn’t dependent on me. I only hurt you now because you are pushing me away instead of adding me to your life.
10. Life as you know is changing. You have lost interest in everything and it’s not my fault. You chose to give me up.
11. I am not the cause of you losing joy in your life. You miss the little moments. If you would take me back and add more of me in your life will be normal.
12. You know because you are cutting me out of your life, you are a failure. Yes, you are. You failed because you were too dumb to know what I could do to you. You chose to take me in. Now look at you, a shell of yourself, and a failure.
13. You think you are smart don’t you? Cutting me out slowly…I will create a hell that you have never experienced. You will never let me go. You will beg for me back. You wait and see.

What about you?! how has your benzo lied to you? Feel free to add. I know as I taper more, I will!

Cult leaders lie to drugged-up, mentally ill members about useless petition

Possibly biggest way to help benzo sufferers...
« on: March 07, 2017, 09:56:40 am »

The link to this petition takes TWO minutes to sign, very easy. On my benzo legal group, I’ve been informed that this UK inquiry may be the single biggest thing that can be done toward our benefit. With enough signatures (1000 needed, we have about 500 right now)…it would enable British victims of benzos to speak before parliament on their horrible medical experience with benzos. This has the potential to change the game with benzos…to bring medical awareness, to change how these meds are prescribed, to stop this harm from happening to others after us, and to compensate victims. Let’s stop the benzo pandemic so sights like this don’t have to exist. ANYONE can sign, not just UK residents. It’s extremely easy to sign. The publicity this inquiry would create would affect things around the world, not just UK. The UK has been ahead of things more so than the USA. Please spread and share with friends, post on facebook, etc….

If we get this enquiry it will be the biggest breakthrough in 30-40 years in the UK. I am in no doubt now that my doctors are LYING to me and coming up with spurious diagnoses to cover up the truth about my health problems. They are not ignorant, they are being deceitful and dishonest. I feel totally and utterly betrayed. I have lost my entire adult life to these drugs. If they had had the decency to be honest it would have helped a little. I hope my story will be in the national press but there are many other stories to be told. Prof Malcolm Lader will be a key witness if this enquiry goes ahead. He is about 70 years old so I hope it happens soon. Sadly Prof Heather Ashton is now too old and too unwell. They tried to expose this scandal decades ago. This is not just about us. It is about all patients in the future. The medical profession is making so many people sick. Hopefully any enquiry will include antidepressants.

I hope you can spare a few minutes.
