Our Mailbag: Tapering, TMJ, and Trusting Yourself

Updated: Mar 21, 2023

Benzo withdrawal creates far more questions than answers, and today we address a few of them. We look at the loss of self-confidence withdrawal, deciding how long to pause during our taper, TMJ and muscle tension, and a few other topics. We also share some news of upcoming events. I hope you enjoy it.
