I have returned home to Toronto after spending much of the last eighteen months in hospitals. I am hoping that my health has improved to the point where I can start producing original content again. Thank you to all who are watching for your support over the course of this trying time. I hope that you all are coping with the COVID crisis successfully.

  • Your ideas and teachings assisted in getting me through a terrible bout with anxiety! The first doctors I went to wanted to put me on antidepressants. But I was able to get a different opinion Buy a natural pathic doctor. I am now six months without an attack. I cannot put it in words how much you helped me. Thank you dr. Peterson for the work you do!

The hunter is there for me a little while ago and I’m not sure how to make it but I’m glad you did not get to me. I’m sorry I didn’t realize you had a chance today and I’m not feeling very much better than that.

Now, after Dr. Petersun, or as I call him, Father, wrapped me up in a cocoon, I await my emergence as a beautiful butterfly! My chrysalized soul has been waiting for its time to emerge... and it is now! Now that Dr. Peterson has returned, the world has found order at last! I will inject his word salads straight into my bloodstream and see all the archetypes of man! At long last I will become a true special boy that is ready to find my way in a world of chaos. Cheers, Father.

  • Jordan, since you are in a weakened state, the Covid you have now may have an effect on you for months afterward. I was exhausted and run down and suffered from depression for 5 months after I got over Covid. Don't give up, Jordan. Sometimes life can hand you one thing after another health wise, my husband and I have been through a lot. But don't give up hope, It will pass eventually and you will bounce back. You are so loved by so many. God is with you. Hold your face up to His light even if for the moment you cannot see.

  • Getting humbled sure doesn't feel good, does it Dr Peterson? And the internet is about as shitty a place as when you left. Maybe worse. From such great heights... Yep. Ah well, I'm not a published author, haven't sold a single book but Ecclesiastes always helps me when I'm feeling down. To paraphrase: **"it's better to go to a funeral than to a party for at the funeral is the grave, where we all end up. So perhaps we can learn something there. At the party is only pretentious laughter like the sound of dried thorns crackling in a fire."** Be well, Jordan. The path of thorns you've chosen has many dark lessons for you, I'm guessing. Things most will never understand. But, perhaps you are the person who can bring that darkness... those, giant pearls, or shall we say, unsavory morsels, to public light and make them somewhat palatable? (you can perhaps see now why I haven't sold any books!) Anyhow, your role has changed. Will you change with it or cling to what was? Again, best wishes and my sincere prayers for your soul. May the Holy Spirit shine *gently* upon you. May it *gently* guide you without overwhelming you. God bless. Take care...

  • You are a brother and a lamplight in what can seem an ink black world at times. I understand and empathize with your situation having been altered permanently by medication necessary to make the now bearable even if the future be damned. I occupy that hell. In what seemed an endless and fruitless search for intellect and reason, I found you. I have no heroes and celebrity worship is the fetid stinking result of vapid acquired ignorance; Yet, here you are, a star. A person, a man, a husband, a father and still giving to those you don’t even know. You already have cultivated a legacy beyond what most will ever achieve. You have improved the lives of countless, invisible and voiceless people. Dr. Jordan Peterson, you are as wonderfully flawed and broken as the rest of us, and well worthy of all of the love and support you need to get back to yourself. Thank you, for everything, and thank you to your family, for sharing you.

  • Dear Prof. Peterson! You need to get in touch with the living G'D, the G'D of Abraham, Isaac and Jacov! HE also is the Father of the Jewish Messiah Jeshua. Read HIS Words! Talk to HIM! SEARCH HIM and HE WILL touch you in your inner man. In fact: HE will give you a totally new spiritual existence which Jeshua refers to as "new birth" in the book of John chapter 3 in the "Brit ha Chadascha"! HE is the ROCK on which our life can depend in trust and for eternity! I'll pray for you! May HIS PEACE and GRACE bring you to the new birth in HIM!🕊🕊🕊

If you look on Google about this drug, essentially all answers are saying "their fine, long term use is relatively safe, they are regarded as safe etc" it makes my blood boil, these fucking pharmaceutical companies creating incalculable suffering, then rationalize it with their ideology w/ the small cases of help provided, in relation to the damage they cause, is justifiable.

In addition to self-esteem, there are radical feminists who think that being born as a man is a sin. If even a little bit of men say their opinions, the man is branded as macho online and subjected to comment terrorism. Social laws are often judged in favor of women. This seems to be a global trend. I am very happy to know someone like you in this situation. Thank you.

I’d like to offer some advice which I hope will be of comfort. Mr Peterson’s work has helped countless people. The outcome of that help is love for Mr. Peterson. Mr Peterson should take that love and let thé love comfort him as he heals and gets stronger. Mr. Peterson please take the time to get all your strength back fully and completely. I would be sadden if you were to crash again because you worked too hard too fast. I wish Mr Peterson continued recovery and strength. I include him in my prayers when I pray to my Ma.

  • This is a plandemic. Everything that is happening right now such as the Corona Virus has been planned by the Elites, the billionaires, and millionaires such as bill gates and much more, which are Satan worshippers. who run this world. They want to create a new world order out of chaos. They want to reduce the world population. It is on the United Nations Agenda 21, the Georgia Guidestones, and even on the one dollar bill. They had all of this planned out before it even happened. They want to have a digital currency where they implant mandatory chips into people. Through this chip they will be able to alter your DNA sequence, they will be able to control you. You will lose your God-given Freedoms to live free on this earth. you will no longer be human. They want to create a one-world currency, and a one-world government out of chaos. And for this to happen they want to crash the current economy and dollar, and they want to create chaos, in order to control us. Please Do Not Take The Corona Virus Vaccine that is Coming. I pray that the American people and people all over the world. wake up. Wake Up. If you know the ingredients inside that vaccine which will come with a chip containing nanotech which they will be able to alter your DNA Sequence, track you, and much more, you will never want that to enter your Body. as a human being. Forgive me if I offend you. I want people to wake up Wake up. I thank you for reading this comment Through. God Bless You in Yeshua(Jesus) Name.

These stories of the Bible are just that. Written by man, not god. Is it too scary for people to think of. Too many people say they believe but live like there will be no “Judgement Day!” With all respect dr. Take care. I’m happy you are getting well.

  • Oh come on, benzos are pretty soft drugs. Where's your constitution man?! You're playing it like you had a meth addiction or other serious, highly addictive drug. To me this is incredibly insincere, seems like a con, just don't believe it. For starters, you were giving the world advice on dealing with life's tough problems, then when you faced such problems yourself you ran to benzos...next, you can't even tolerate a bit of valium without knocking on deaths doors, not cool, not wise, not strong. Then, you talk about "God's grace", why? to try and keep your faithful flock - you're not a literal God believer so once more this rings insincere. No good Jordan. Really, consider stop demonizing benzos which are a powerful group of drugs in treating anxiety, uncontrollable muscle contraction, insomnia, alcohol withdrawal. Jesus anyone who undergoes surgery is given 20-30mg of benzos pre-op. Prescribed by a doctor, benzos are good and important - nothing can replace them. So why not stop terrifying people? All we hear from you now is 'benzos, benzos, benzos'. To the initiated, it's seriously questionable. Now, you played the part of surrogate father to thousands of us who had weak fathers - with this act of yours you are pulling the carpet from under your own feet. Stop blaming benzos and get real with us.

    Julian KnightJulian KnightDag geleden
    • @Bei Fiori Yes, I agree. And it's good to know other people have a gut feeling about Peterson's actions. With his story about hospitals in several countries, ending up in Serbia just to be able to withdraw from benzos...well I'm surprised anyone thinks this is the whole story. Benzos just aren't that difficult to ween off. And even if he is one of the minority that has extra difficulty withdrawing from them - there's no need to repeatedly demonize them, if he has an intolerance of some kind, he should know better than to keep ranting on about benzos like they're crack cocaine...because they aren't. And he knows it. He'd also know that they are a class of tranquilizer that literally cannot be replaced by another class. So they're here to stay and in many circumstances they're vital in recovery from several diseases, also vital pre-surgery. There is something horribly wrong here, considering he grew to such fame as a father of psychology to so many people, his "benzo benzo benzo" story seems as fake to me as a man who blames his car crash on too much booze. Where's master psychologist now? I have a niggling feeling that Peterson thinks so highly of his intelligence he may have overlooked the fact that the whole world isn't stupid. And...sadly, I'm feeling he's treating us that way, while exercising his own greed for more fame and fortune. But "The benzos did it!!" just makes him sound like a common drunk blaming the bottle. And sure, the whole God thing of his...that's a known quantity. He's known for being outrageously insincere in that department. For anyone who's read C.G.Jung (Peterson's main inspiration), God is, in fewer words, our human potential to raise our conscience to guide us. The Jungain God is not one that creates universes, it's one that we, humans project onto the world - it is our own best nature, that's it. So when he says, "By God's grace, I'm still alive", what the hell does that mean? There's a profound lack of straight talk and sincerity with Peterson. He swallowed his own feet while talking to Sam Harris and Matt Dillahunty on this matter. Yet he keeps it up, it's like a politician talking crap but he knows a certain demographic believes it so the rest of us don't matter. He is highly intelligent and also a fool, all wrapped up in one.

    • Agree that there seems to be more than meets the eye here. I'm a fan of Peterson's and agree that there is a place for prescription drugs, for sure, but it seems like we're only getting a piece of this puzzle. Something in the gut telling me that. There are way too many sycophants on here, though. It's fine to be a fan of someone or someone's philosophy but it's downright worship with some of these people. NO ONE is so great that they should be followed without question. Seems these days all people have to do is invoke God this or God that at some point and there's a whole mass of people that will automatically fall in line. Disconcerting.

  • Being someone who has suffered with addiction for over a decade now I would give anything to have a sit down with Jordan Peterson and discuss everything he’s gone through as far as everything to do with the benzodiazepine use. They’re one of the hardest drugs to stop and I truly hope he’s actually okay. I’m glad to hear he’s doing better but I know the darkness it can awaken inside people. I know how I would describe my own problems with substance abuse but to hear it in detail from someone as well thought out and grounded as him would be so interesting. I’m sure no one will see this but my thoughts are with you (and anyone dealing with these issues for that matter)

    • @Travis that’s such BS. People like you should sue. Glad to hear you’re not addicted now. God is great

    • I am actually tapering them now. I am not an addict. I am a victim of a incompetent doctor that had me on 7mg of xanax a day for over a year (and lower doses for 4 to 5 years). I have brutal stomach pains when I eat. I have awful restless muscles from akathisia. I have trouble sleeping. I have fallen twice and one gave me a big scar on my eyebrow. I think i am tapering too hard. Finding a doctor that knows the best benzo to taper and the other medications to help the 24/7 anxiety feeling is really difficult. 3 specialist would not treat me unless I went to their rehab program (aka... They want more money). I am just relying on my own research and maybe my primary doctors will listen.

  • I really support you Jordan!! I'm so happy that people in Korea try to listen to your opinion and wake up. You really help a lot of young people in my country. Now they have wise prospective of view and try to prove and explain that PC is toxic. . . I'm sorry if my English is not perfect, but the point is I really appreciate everything you do👍
