“Symptoms” and acceptance

The symptoms I am having as a result of withdrawal are first and foremost physical. I've been rendered physically disabled. This is a result of my particular body and history on meds.

An oldie but a goodie

I watched this video of Gwen Olsen talking about benzos and then psych drugs in general before I had a blog. I didn't realize I've never posted it.

However while it is clear that something dark and ugly lifted, I am still plagued with a great CNS disturbance. I've stopped... Continue Reading →
