I am sorry if you think I am reinforcing benzophobia. That was not my intention.

Yes, I am addicted to bubble baths, and yes I would drive across town in the middle of the night for Mr. Bubbles (I've done it before). Why not, I am usually awake all night anyway (insomnia).

But, I was stating to jesus that some pdocs (and others) like to use the word "addictive" with benzo's. So I told him not to ask for it by name. I did not say "do not take clonazepam, you will become addicted and abuse it". If one needs a medication, they have the right to have it. In my opinion, if a pdoc is phobic with medications, I am out the door. I don't need a pdoc to neglect me, and any treatment I need, obviously jesus doesn't either.

I understand you are not trying to give me a "hard time". But once again I am sorry if you think I am reinforcing benzophobia, even unintentionally. I do not believe that I am. Benzo's are useful for me, and many others, including you. I have read the medical definition of addiction. In my opinion its silly for me to be able to say that I am addicted to bubble baths, and someone take it the wrong way. Oh, and by the way, I am addicted to chocolate too. I just drove in over a foot of blowing and drifting snow to get some. We are under a state of emergency, not supposed to go anywhere.

Anyway, I'm done with the conversation. I was just giving jesus a few pointers, and not trying to upset anyone. I haven't the strength (mentally) to discuss whether or not I'm reinforcing benzophobia when I am not.
