Lazy Morning on the Patio: Updates, Community, Compassion, and Coaching

What’s new at Easing Anxiety? What’s new in the benzo community? What’s new in the world of BIND? And what should someone new to benzos do if they’re just getting started? Join D for an off-script conversation this lazy Sunday morning.

In today’s episode, D records the podcast live on his back patio enjoying the sights and sounds of nature. He discusses the EA Community, a new team member, lingering symptoms, coaching, training, surviving, and a few tips for those just getting started.
