A blog written by a victim of prescribed benzodiazepines.

I have started this blog as a way of campaigning for issues that may be well understood by the online Benzodiazepine support community but are as yet not understood by the general public. I have been left severely physically disabled from prescribed benzodiazepine medication.

There is a TV programme here in the UK called “Room 101” based on the saying “to banish to room 101”. I chose the blog title deliberately using the word ‘victim’ and not ‘survivor’ (I have been left disabled with no medical help and cannot honestly say I’m a survivor at this stage). I chose ‘101’ because victims have been swept under the carpet by the medical establishment, banished into solitude by their disabilities and information has been ‘got rid of’ by those who wish to keep this problem concealed. In that respect this disaster is no different to the blood poisoning scandal, Thalidomide or even The Hillsborough Disaster.

Whilst this was initially started as a personal blog it will also be used to highlight many victims voices and also to host guest blogs for others.

If you require help tapering off Benzodiazepines please consult the Ashton Manual at http://www.benzo.org.uk

In addition there are online support groups such as BenzoBuddies and Beating Benzos on FB.

World Benzodiazepine Awareness Day has an informative site at http://www.w-bad.org.

Other blogs I recommend are at http://www.nevertrustadoctor.wordpress.com and http://www.beatingbenzos.com

Thank you for reading.
