Jordan Peterson on Getting Off of Benzodiazepines, Being in the Spotlight
I'm glad he came through it. I've prayed for him.
@guru Benzodiazepines control anxiety, but never use them long term. They have a very long withdrawal cycle. It suppresses anxiety but has a really weird snap back called akinesia. My dad was on them for years and it was terrible. He ended up bed-ridden for 18 years after a stroke.
That must be a nasty drug.
