My doctor has said I can resume my original medication dose as prescribed. The taper was getting to me and I caved and had to say something. I remember my pastor mentioning to me that if it got bad, let the doctor know. I held back like “No, I have to do this.” And in the end, it was too much too soon of a taper at least for me. So yay for that and thank You, Lord and for all who prayed.
Another thing I would like to say is that my psychiatric appointment was moved from May to February! Another huge blessing. My primary care recently changed and I think he is not really comfortable prescribing benzo medications which I can see because he is not a psychiatric doctor. My previous PCP was also an assistant professor at a medical school so I think he was a bit more seasoned in psychiatry and comfortable with my medication regiment.
So I just wanted to give an update and give praise to the Lord. I feel a huge weight lifted off of my shoulders right now and that God has truly had mercy upon my undeserving soul.
May God bless you all as you seek His will for your lives.
In Jesus Name, Amen
