Today is World Benzodiazepine Awareness Day.
This is my contribution.
Note: I should have probably taken a moment to think about dressing up, or putting on makeup, or doing something with my hair.
But you know what? This is 100% authentically me, speaking honestly about a topic I know way too much about.
I respond to all comments left here on my blog. Please feel free to leave one.
NOTE: It is potentially dangerous to come off medications without careful planning. Please be sure to be well educated before undertaking any sort of discontinuation of medications. If your MD agrees to help you do so, do not assume he/she knows how to do it well even if he/she claims to have experience. Doctors are generally not trained in discontinuation and may not know how to recognize withdrawal issues. It’s important to educate yourself and find a doctor who is willing to learn with you as your partner in care.
