Thank you guys,

I am completely blown away by all of your heartfelt comments.  You guys are unbelievable. I have never before come in contact with so many awesome folks, as you all are. 

All of you have proven me right when I claimed that BenzoBuddies was comprised of the most decent, kind, and caring people that I have ever encountered.  Thank you all so much.  You are all so unique.  You are all so special.  Always remember that, because you really are, you know.

Thank you,  [...]  pianongirl  [...]  [...]  [...]  [...]  [...]  [...]

A special thank you to Colin for having the foresight to see the need for establishing  BenzoBuddies, and to all the moderators, and team members, who, along with Colin, work  tirelessly to ensure that this site will always be a safe, and friendly refuge to those in need of a helping hand, and words of kindness that offer [...], and healing to those who are hurting.

And last, but certainly not least. 

To all the members who are [...] suffering.  If everyday is becoming a struggle, and your goal of being benzo free appears to be  getting further, and futher away...Stop, take a [...] breath, and remind yourself that one day YOU, will be writing YOUR success story.


If you have made mistakes, there is always another chance for you.
You may have a fresh start any moment you choose,
for this thing we call 'failure' is not the falling down, but the staying down.

Mary Pickford

the very best to you all

Very, very cool. I just hit 15 months off and although I [...] have some annoying symptoms and even some more painful and persistent ones from time to time that make it difficult for me to fully function, I [...] feel like healing is right around the corner so it's good to hear someone else making a full recovery in a "reasonable" amount of time. This stuff wears on a person. Not knowing when (and when the benzo brain kicks in, IF) we will make a full recovery is frustrating. Hearing that other people have made it through always makes a difference.

[...]:  I have never read any of your posts before this one.  Your story mirrors mine in many ways.  I am so glad to hear you are recovered!  This experience is harrowing to say the least, but I agree that on good days (and I am sure once recovered it is even more powerful) I feel such a gratitude for everything and such a passion for life.  It may be the gift of this trying experience, that and the compassion that is born of being humbled and needing understanding.  This forum is a lifeline to so many of us.  This experience is truly only understood by those who have gone this way before.  I am always so appreciative of those that [...] stop by here to support all of us [...] dealing with symptoms to encourage, educate and inspire.  Good luck to you [...]!  May you have a wonderful life and I [...] you stop by to encourage from time to time

You are just about there.  The light at the end of that tunnel is getting so close, and is so bright, you will have to put the shades on.  It's been a long, strange journey, hasn't it.

take care

Hi [...], :)

Thank you so much for your kind words.

Whenever you may be feeling down , and somewhat discouraged, try to remember that what is waiting for you after this has ended  makes all that you had  to endure worth the struggle.
