Hello my dear benzo buddies!

I made a few recent posts private. I will make them public again in a while. They aren’t deleted, just hidden from public view.

Please take good care of yourselves. I know it’s a long, hard, tiring, lonely journey. But there is an end to it. Our receptors do eventually heal from the damage done to them. Our bodies, brains, minds, and souls do recover.

Try to focus on the things you do have, not what you have lost, or don’t have. Focus on the love in your life, not the resentments or anger. Be grateful. You have breath in your lungs, a pulse…. THANK YOU GOD!  Focus on this moment. The past is past, the future hasn’t arrived. You only have this moment.

BTW, I recently applied for an amazing job that I would be honored to have. It’s a position right at the heart of my two passions, youth development and agriculture. It would be a true blessing to finally be able to go from being so ill, to working at a job that totally sings to my heart and soul. I am trying not to get my hopes up too much and to trust that my life is in God’s hands, but I am excited about the possibility of being of service to an amazing organization.  I am now well enough from wd and the flu, to step foot back into the world. You will get there too. One day at a time.

Keep holding onto hope. It is the best cure we have.

Oh, one more thing. Bliss called me two days ago. It was good to talk to her. She always touches my heart. She is an angel among us. She reminded me that we all heal. It all goes away. So keep the faith.

Keep fighting everyone. It’s a battle worth fighting, because you are worth fighting for.

I love you all so much. I am so very grateful to be walking beside you in this long and grueling journey.


PS I posted this shortly after Don made a post so keep scrolling down for his AMAZING story. You don’t want to miss it.
