> My curing doctor is world famous, look at his site @ where he explains how he has taken people who have been to 50-100 doctors and has 30%-60% of them much better in less than two weeks.

I've read his website; I think he tends to oversimplify people's problems in a way that I think is unlikely to work in many cases (though obviously because of nonspecific effects I don't doubt that he has good luck sometimes). I think perhaps his "method" relies a lot on expectation effects.

> That ambien will be as useless to you as it is now to me if you keep using it consistently for long due to tolerance increase up to virtual immunity (futility point).

Uh, no. Some people develop tolerance to Ambien (probably behavioral tolerance, as occurs with alcohol), but that isn't the rule. For example, I used it every day for a year or more without needing to increase the dose. Your experience doesn't generalize.

Also, benzodiazepines cause cross-tolerance; if you're tolerant to one, you will be at least somewhat tolerant to another.

BTW I wonder if perhaps your memory problems may be due to chronic sleep deprivation as well as overuse of high-dose benzodiazepines; your loss of motivation might be caused by partial remission from mania. (Why do you feel such a need to insist that you are not manic? Mania is defined by observed symptoms, which I think you know you have.)
