Smart People; BEWARE VERSED/MIDAZOLAM

I have drawn my own conclusions by observation of those of us that have had a bad experience with Versed. My conclusion is that the main indicator of severe Versed side effects is intelligence. I don't mean this as an insult to people with lower IQ's by any means! I am positive that there are other factors involved, it's just that the main one as *I* see it is intelligence. As a subset of bright people, those of us who have a mathematical bent have the most chance of bad "trip" with Versed and subsequent problems.

If you look through the sheer numbers of patients who have Versed induced problems all over the internet, pay close attention to those who are mathematical engineers of some type. That number is statistically impossible. Then add in those who have extremely analytical minds. Processing data mentally is a mark of intelligence... Pilots, upper management, even musicians who compose their own music are using math and analysis. These people have a high degree of Versed complications. Abnormally high.

As a truck driver, my subconscious brain constantly analyzes my speed, road conditions, the speed and spacing of all traffic surrounding me, the weight of my vehicle, (up to 120,000 lbs) my stopping distance, and where to go if the unthinkable happens around me. My brain tracks this stuff all the time and notes abnormalities in specific vehicles' driving patterns and road conditions. I KNOW where each vehicle should be at any given time because my brain has computed their speed, direction of travel, and consistency. I don't have to "think" about it as the computations are going on all the time without my conscious mind having to deal with it. If a vehicle suddenly appears where my subconscious says it should not be, I pay attention. I NEVER panic. This is an analytical mind at its best... Not to seem conceited! lol This is what Versed targeted.

*I* AM just a lowly truck driver, however my IQ has never been tested as in the normal range. It has always been MENSA high. My daughter's IQ is also abnormally high. IQ has been shown to be hereditary. As you can see that while IQ seems to have a correlation with engineers, not all people with high IQ are going to be engineers, so that a person's JOB is not the only way to perceive IQ or lack of it. It's just part of the criteria. Maybe the medical personnel should be asking about IQ and job choices. They should also pay attention to their perceptions about the patient. Even IF the person is a truck driver, it doesn't follow that this patient is STUPID! My crna should have been able to identify me as an intelligent person simply by talking to me... His lack of perception is a personality flaw, in my opinion, as shown by many others in his field as well.

If you have read some of the letters I've received and published on this blog from Versed sufferers, there is one thread which runs through them all. These are NOT STUPID PEOPLE! These are bright, articulate people who have had their brains damaged by Versed. They are also bright enough to perceive the damage, sort of like your computers' anti viral program. We have the ability to ponder our own brain, and to assess damage.

I watched a show about really good police investigators a while back. Apparently the best of them can recall information to an alarming degree. In my case it is almost like a computer screen in my head. Just like the best investigators say they have in THEIR head! I get the stored information in a format like a film reel. That's how the best detectives get it too! Not everybody can do this, according to the show. I had never considered this before watching the program, as it seems normal to me and I thought everybody had this ability. They don't. I've been asking people about this ability, especially those of my friends who have no problems with Versed. They don't do this with their memory. This is part of what Versed attempts to destroy.

It has taken me 6 years to get my film reels back in some sort of order after Versed wrecked my mind. I have ANXIETY over my inability to get my perfect recall back in its entirety. I never understood panic before, and now I have panic attacks over anything that MIGHT involve Versed. It's part of my new reality, an unwelcome part...

If you are reading this and you have a bright, analytical, mathematical brain, and/or are not prone to panic, do not allow ANYBODY, especially some arrogant little minion in a medical setting to give you this drug Versed. It will insult your brain and cause untold damage. Then when you correctly identify the poison that caused the damage, you will be further insulted by some little creep who can't hold a candle to your own brainpower. Hell, it seems that many (most?) of these medical people can't even learn from their own mistakes, because their little minds aren't CAPABLE of self examination. (This is also a conclusion *I* personally have come to by interacting with lots and lots of mid level medical providers. To an alarming degree, they have zero ability to second guess their own preconceived notions, especially about Versed!)

DISCLAIMER; THESE ARE MY OWN THOUGHTS ON THE PROBLEM WITH VERSED. I AM NOT A SCIENTIST, I'M JUST USING MY OWN POWERS OF OBSERVATION AND DRAWING SOME OBVIOUS (TO ME) CONCLUSIONS! IT'S A BUYER BEWARE SITUATION WITH MEDICINE THESE DAYS AND I WANT EVERYBODY TO USE THEIR OWN FANTASTIC BRAINS TO ASSESS THE SITUATION AND MAKE THE RIGHT DECISION FOR THEMSELVES. DO NOT BLINDLY BELIEVE ANYBODY IN THE MEDICAL FIELD. IF YOU LIKE YOUR BRAIN AND DO NOT WANT IT TAMPERED WITH BY PEOPLE WHO DON'T GIVE A DAMN ABOUT IT, THINK! THINK BEFORE YOU ALLOW VERSED!

  1. Yes !!! I agree with you 100% on everything you just said !
    I also consider myself to be very analytical, and excelled at mathematics in school...and my subconscious mind always seems to figure things out long before my conscious mind does.
    What I do not understand is why so many medical people refer to us (Versed victims) as having "control" issues. I only became that way AFTER they tampered with my brain by giving me Versed !
