Angela Peacock, of APeacock Consulting, has graciously invited me to join her for a Facebook Live event tomorrow morning (June 9th, 11:00am ET) as part of a lived-experience series she is producing. We will discuss an assortment of topics including benzodiazepines, BIND, research, advocacy, coaching/consulting, and much more.
To learn more about Angela Peacock, please visit her website at https://www.apeacockconsulting.com. You can also listen to Angela's guest appearance on The Benzo Free Podcast back in 2020 for the release of the film, "Medicating Normal."

D E Foster ("D") is founder of the support site Easing Anxiety, host of The Benzo Free Podcast, and co-chair and founding member of the Benzodiazepine Action Work Group at the Colorado Consortium for Prescription Drug Abuse Prevention. He is a published author on multiple research papers and a global advocate for anxiety and benzodiazepine awareness, education, and support.
In 2002, D was prescribed clonazepam (Klonopin) by his primary care physician and he took the medication for 12 years without warning. His withdrawal experience was extreme and became the foundation for his book, Benzo Free: The World of Anti-Anxiety Drugs and the Reality of Withdrawal. D is now eight-years benzo-free, still deals with the lingering effects of BIND (benzodiazepine-induced neurological dysfunction), and spends most of his time working in the benzo community.
