This is definitely not a good time to be running out of benzos, but it's what's happening.

Pdoc appt only on the 27th, so need to stretch them out until then. That means lower quantity. Pdoc says we'll replace benzos with something not addictive, we'll see.

So, I'm already tapering. When the time for the appt comes, I'll be down to just a quarter, can't cut the pill to less than that.

It's not even serious, just stupid anxiety. lol :? Want low thc mmj. :roll:

I'll move this to rants.

Can you call the pdoc for more meds early if you really need them?
Sounds anxiety provoking rationing them out like that... although good to get off them if you can...

No, she's on vacation. It's going to have to wait. I can use my mom's benzos.. Lorazepam... in the meanwhile, although I don't like them.

Has to be stressful to be running out of any med. Especially when it comes to the type of meds that your running out of....
Snowflakes gently floating from the sky just dusting the ground. Then it picks up bigger fatter flakes cascading from space at a faster rate. From a dusting to a trace. Then the deluge comes. Oh what joy. Watching everything slow to a crawl, then a stop. Step outside and even with things moving it is quiet. It is a giant muffler the earth is wearing. Causing everything to be muted.To be calm.

oh shit, girl....... :shock: ......well this just sucks ass.

I know you mentioned something about doc dc'ing benzo a while back. What's up with that? You've been doing fine on the dose you've been on, right? I know you haven't been eating them like candy.

Too bad you can't go back back to the mmj but I understand the deal on that.

sigh.......

Thanks Stuckles :) I managed today without benzo, might take a quarter before sleep if I stay up late.

Mocha.. She said so, but didn't mention a tapering process. I researched it and started it on my own, because benzos were running low. I guess the amount I take she didn't think tapering was needed.

And yes, mmj :cry:

yep....we know better about the taper for sure, eh? Benzos always have to be tapered down.

Silly doc.....:roll:....

Well, I was supposed to have an appointment on Aug. 30th but had to reschedule, so it's not entirely her fault.
