    Got it! A lot of those ads seem to be too good to be true; it's why I asked. Thanks for the reply.

    Legitimate items or bogus solutions?

    Lately, I?ve been seeing ads that claim to improve posture as well as compression shirts that hold in a man?s belly. They made me wonder if both would make me sit more erect in chair as well as help...

    Thank you all for the comments. Yes, I told my cousin that her son will be fine man throughout his life. Of course, my mother told me he reminded her of me when I was a kid. Who knows? :devil:

    Cris,

    I read your entire post; I’m sorry for all of your suffering. When I read about your use of Valium, I smirked, I get it. I truly hope things get better for you, for you to find the...

    Milestone: No longer anyone?s grandchild.

    We buried my paternal grandfather today; I was blessed to have three grandparents for over three decades of my life. My maternal grandfather died prior to my being born.

    Precisely! As Dr. Huff says, if it can happen to an M.D., it could happen to anyone: https://www.buzzsprout.com/265442/1370830

    Tom, I empathize entirely. Not to be disrespectful, but it caught my eye: Are you truly a believer in a flat earth? I promise not to mock you, I?m asking, so it would be unfair of me to do so, even...
  12. Thank you.

    Thank you.
  13. It?s a miracle drug because it works so well,...

    It?s a miracle drug because it works so well, almost too well. However, it?s not intended to be taken chronically despite the fact that many people who take benzodiazepines are on daily use...

    Bonnette,

    Benzodiazepine dependency and withdrawal can be horrific. Many in the benzo community believe it?s barbaric to even force iatrogenically dependent patients off of them because it?s so...

    I’ll be giving you both calls, I promise you. I’ll enjoy sharing stories and catching up. We have Tropical Storm on the way! Sigh. I’m north of the lake so flooding, if any occurs, will likely not...

    Thank you, Patrick.

    Update: I spoke with my cousin who is an M.D. (a neurologist). He’s going to set me up an appointment with a colleague of his to discuss going further with a plan that’s more comfortable for me. He...

    KLD,

    I realize I forgot to thank you properly for your words and support. Forgive my faux pas, your advice was just as much appreciated.

    Thank you, M.E., I’ve added you to my phone. As I told Phil, sometimes I need to feel more engaged before reaching out, so please don’t be offended if don’t call within the next hour. Haha! I will be...

    Thank you! It’s always nice to have another person there.
  22. KLD, Yes, absolutely! Alcohol and...

    KLD,

    Yes, absolutely! Alcohol and benzodiazepine withdrawal must be done under medical supervision. I believe my psychiatrist is comfortable enough in her assertion that by going off 2.5mg a week...

    Yes, the inability to enjoy sleep can be a terrible thing; in time, it will likely return. Trazodone may help you sleep well if you can tolerate it. It can make me feel sleepy in an uncomfortable way...

    Thank you! What she said. Lavender may be well-intentioned, but it’s a very far complex and difficult issue than simply moving over towards natural ways. Opium and alcohol are natural, and we know...

    M.E.,

    I had no idea! I?m so sorry you found yourself dealing with the benzo beast yourself. OMG! I want to hug you right now. I?ll drop my information to you in PM.

    Love,
    Todd
